Bill's Durant blind spot is gaping.
Durant going to GS was unlike anything that's ever happened in the league's history. It would be Magic going to Boston. Bird going to LA. Ewing going to Chicago. Karl Malone going to Chicago.
And I liked the Oakley interview in spots, I found Oak to be pretty funny, actually. But the old canard, "In my day, players were tough." Jordan was staying out until 4am, playing golf and smoking cigars and winnings Championships. Part of this is Jordan's genius but the other part is the player's weren't locked in as impressively as they are today.
That said, Oakley talking about getting jumped multiple times by 7 guys was stupid. It's half a story, it might not even be true, and it's told from his perspective, which means he's leaving about 80% of what actually happened out.
