Someone y’all should know about:
The 12th collegiate player all time with over 2,000 points and 1,000 boards. The few who beat him to the punch: Oscar Robertson, Elgin Baylor, and Jerry West.
First overall pick in the NBA draft, 1962. Some amazing company: Elgin Baylor and Oscar Robertson again. Kareem. Magic Johnson. Olajuwon and Ewing. David Robinson, Shaq, Tim Duncan, Yao Ming, LeBron. Take a look.
Why do I mention him? Because it’s playoff time, and this guy is a local hero. All-American in high school, 4 straight All-LA selections, 3 city championships. A killer player and a killer guy all around.
And you know what else? He’s gonna put out a book. Believe that. Stay tuned.
