Earlier today I posted a “then and now” piece and said the one thing more common than weight gain for NBA players are tattoos. That doesn’t apply to the players of the 90s – with the exception of Dennis Rodman who probably deserves credit for the tattoo phenomenon in the NBA. No, for the NBA “legends” of the 90s, what goes inside the body looks more appealing than what goes on the outside.
The proof is in the pudding and YouTube. Check out a few “legends” like Penny Hardaway, Scottie Pippen, Payton, Drexler, LJ, Rodman and a few chubby guys you probably wont be able to recognize (Vin Baker, Voshon Lenard, Mark Blount, Dale Ellis) that’s currently touring in China along with our partners at Ballup Streetball. Before watching the videos, check out the promo poster again. Get a little excited. Now watch the video and try not to feel too disappointed because Christmas is tomorrow which means the NBA is back…with active future legends.
