I miss when refs would not call a foul when soccer player pretended they got fouled from a soft touch. I especially miss the toughness in basketball. This is why I love this article…

RealGM/Seattle Times: “Joakim Noah didn’t appreciate LeBron James'(notes) dancing last week and it is unlikely last year’s MVP would get away with doing that 20 years ago. ‘If a guy was doing the Riverdance like that, coach would come over and say, ‘Who’s got the fewest amount of fouls of my big fellas?” said ex-Celtic and TNT analyst Kevin McHale. ‘If you raised your hand, he would say, ‘We will let him drive and then we will throw him on the ground.’ When he is laying there we would say, ‘Do you feel like dancing now?’ And that pretty much solved the dancing problem.”
