    I met Oscar Robertson yesterday! The Big O! The only player to average a triple doulble for an entire season. One of the greatest basketball players EVER!!!!
     
  2. See, I'm so TalkBassed, I thought you met The Smug Hoser himself. One-track mind, I guess :D :rolleyes:

    In any case, coolness.

    I've always admired Joe Dumars, IsiahThomas, Bill Laimbeer, and RICKY Mahorn! Of course Rodman, Salley.

    I dug the NBA a few years back.

    I met Bill Laimbeer, he signed a pair of shoes for me. He has HUGE hands. He punched Brad Daugherty in the face a few days later...OUCH!:eek:
