Hi guys, I'm new on Instagram but not new in the hobby. I'd like to share my collection with you. Hope you like it. Let's start with the #all time scoring leader #kareem Abdul-Jabbar and his #rookie card

Depending on who you ask there are at least two and no more than five great #NBA franchises to speak of. I'm in the group of people who say there are 4 great organizations. The #Lakers , #Celtics , #Spurs , and #Bulls I do not count the #Knicks though I respect #MSG and what it means to the game.
The 2016-17 injury of #IsaiahThomas I think will prove to be a pivotal moment for player and certainly susperstar health consideration. I anticipate more players employing their own #medicalprofessionals and trusting #teamdoctors much less. #TheCeltics said IT was clear to play... By playing it's possible that Thomas made himself an example of why team doctors can't be trusted.
I believe the first instance of an #NBAplayer acting on the knowledge provided by the Celtics Vs. Isaiah Thomas, is in the case of #KawhiLeonard Vs. the #SanAntonioSpurs . We can speculate as to the seriousness of #Kawhi 's quad injury but I think the more important point is #theSpurs reluctance to acknowledge Kawhi's right to consult a physician that is not on the team's payroll.
The Celtics crossed a line with Thomas that every team must now be aware of. The Spurs with their business-as-usual #Popovich Knows Best attitude gave off that slimy "I'm hiding something vibe" and any #superstar would do well to stay away from a long-term situation like that. These incidents hurt the #NBA Thomas Leonard the Celtics and the Spurs.
Encouraging a player to play through injury at the risk of his long-term career outlook or giving the appearance to NBA players that that's what your franchise is doing will prove difficult to recover from.
I won't talk in detail about how #Kobe 's farewell tour and #Kareem 's farewell tour 30 years earlier signaled to top NBA players that the Lakers are a players team, but you should note the point. Think about how #DanGilbert treats his homegrown star in contrast to #JeanieBuss and the Late #DrJerryBuss treat thier guys. It is no wonder why some teams will ever have difficulty retaining talent and some teams always seem to "get lucky". I'm #EBernard and that's #TheHoopsTruth
