AP Photo/Gene J. PuskarJune 26, 2001: June 26 is a big day in NBA draft history, but sorry -- former Pittsburgh Pirates manager Lloyd McClendon steals this show. By stealing first base. Yes, he yanked the actual base from its rightful place on this day 11 years ago, after being tossed by umpire Rick Reed during a game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
No surprise: His tirade endures.
