In the second edition of our NBA 20 Years Ago series, we explore the events of November 1997 in the NBA, including Charles Barkley throwing a bar patron through a window, Tim Duncan's first month in the league, players being fined for wearing too-long shorts, A.C. Green setting the NBA consecutive game record, Isiah Thomas leaving his position as Raptors GM, and much more.

We also discuss a rocky start for Michael Jordan and the Bulls, tough negotiations with Chicago and Dennis Rodman, Scottie Pippen trade demands, a pregame fight between Shaquille O'Neal and Greg Ostertag, the first female referees in NBA history, Muggsy Bogues' ugly departure from the Hornets, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar suing a similarly named football player, the Suns and Blazers in a 150-147 quadruple overtime game, Isaiah Rider being suspended for spitting at a fan, Barkley's final 40-point game of his career, excellent starts for the Lakers and the Hawks, Eddie Jones getting some shine, and Dikembe Mutombo doing more than just defense.
