    Photo By Matt Mendelsohn CLICK NOTE: Of anything I’ve posted all week, these are fascinating looks into the experiences behind photographs by great photographers. You’ll all fixate on different photographers, but each of these is worth taking a minute of your day for. And they’re not all sports, by the way.

    As this decade ends, I wanted to commemorate its passing by collecting images from these special people that have helped me over the years. I asked them to select an image of theirs that is historic, unique, revealing or memorable. Most of all, I wanted the image to be something personal … an image special to them.

    What happens when one photographer breaks the rules, runs out in front of everyone else? USA Today photographer Jack Gruber, from SportsShooter.com: Security and officials realized they had no plan and had lost all control. At this point, it was ugly.

Watching the tournament media director (Pete Simon) running around the court wildly chasing television away from impromptu interviews with players and ripping credentials from photographers necks while stadium security guarded invisible no access lines all seemed too insane to be true. Here.
