WHEN MICHAEL VICK PLAYS, I see streetball. I don't just mean that sort of football where you have to count to four-Mississippi before you can rush the quarterback, nearly everything breaks down and it's all great fun. I also mean street basketball. Vick's style reminds me of Allen Iverson -- the speed, the court sense, the sharp cuts, the dekes, the swag. In those breathtaking moments when the Eagles QB abandons the pocket and takes off, it feels as if he's thumbing his nose at the whole regimented, militaristic ethos of the game.
All of that is why, to me, Vick seems to have a deeply African-American approach to the game.

Just seemed to constantly bounce around and leave points more unanswered than when he started. Why we have to continue to have these discussions into "street viewpoints" vs "mainstream" is beyond me. Is it really still a burning conversation piece or is it as trivial as I and those around me find it anymore?
