Bernard King’s Journey to Springfield: During his freshman season at Tennessee, Bernard scored 34 points against the Wolverines of Michigan. Johnny Orr, the Michigan head coach, said: “He is probably the best offensive freshman I’ve ever seen. He’s a demon. If you front him, it’s difficult because he’ll get to the boards quickly. And he follows his shots. He forces a few – hell anybody that shoots that much has to – but he’s not a crazy shooter.”
1-Dan Klores of the New York Times gives us a history lesson on “Basketball in Brooklyn.” Klores takes us back to what it was like playing basketball in Brooklyn. Nice read…
2-Jeff Goodman of CBS Sportsline.com on Sam Cassel, former NBA point guard who has a few words for the NCAA. He’s not happy.
3-David Friedman of 20 Second Timeout is an outstanding basketball writer. I highly recommend you visit his site and bookmark it. Love when he writes about the old school players.
4-Detroit Free Press on the Idaho Stampede of the D-League hiring a high school coach as their new head coach. Michael Peck comes from Findlay Prep but he does have some experience at the college level. Nice hire. Good luck to him. Hope he does well. It’s great to see a high school guy get a shot.
5-Can we please put an end to all this “basketball wives” nonsense. Everywhere I turn there is a story about it. Do people really enjoy watching this stuff?
