To kick off our new series NBA 20 Years Ago, we look at the 1997 NBA offseason, including the Shawn Kemp trade, the Kevin Garnett extension, Rick Pitino taking power in Boston, and Larry Bird coming home to Indiana, in the latest episode of the Over and Back Classic NBA Podcast.
We discus the offseason melodrama surround the Chicago Bulls, a record number of coaching changes, the Washington Bullets becoming the Wizards, a series of unfortunate jersey changes, the 1997 NBA draft with Tim Duncan joining the Spurs, the eternal question of whether Kevin Van Horn or Tim Thomas had a better career, a pretty undramatic free agency period, Shaquille O'Neal's summer flop "Steel", how much Kemp could help in Cleveland, Antonio McDyess being traded to Phoenix, and Garnett reshaping the salary structure of the NBA.
