Joe Kleine

The owner of the Phoenix Suns was just fined and suspended for being a giant piece of shit. As a life long Suns fan, it’s embarassing and disappointing. It got me thinking back to the hey day of my fandom, which was the 92–93 era of Charles Barkley, Kevin Johnson, Dan Marjele, et. al. For whatever reason, my favorite player was the backup center, Joe Klein. Coincidentally as I was cleaning out a drawer this morning, I found four of his cards which I’ve been toting around for the past 25 years.

It’s funny what we hold onto.
