The Slice

Perfect record

I have attended a grand total of one National Basketball Association game.

I was still in college and working part-time for a small daily newspaper in Arizona. My boss wanted me to have the experience of covering a pro sports event. So he arranged for me to get a floor pass as a photographer and locker room-access reporter credentials.

It was interesting. But here's the thing.

The game was between the home team, the Phoenix Suns, and the Portland Trailblazers. And that season, 1976-77, the Blazers would go on to win the NBA playoffs.

So how many people can say they have seen just one pro game (whatever sport) but that it involved the eventual league champions?
