Wow, I remember those guys. I also remember how the Lakers hosed Portland out of drafting A.C. so they had to settle for some guy named Terry Porter. I guess he turned out just fine.
Wow oregongal. Great story. I didn't realize you had such a personal connection to the game, ie. your step brother. Growing up around basketball players sounds like so much fun! I'm jealous.
that really is an amazing story. growing up, my dad and brothers were huge sports fans which got me involved in watching teams like the blazres, but i've never had that connection to someone who actually went to training camp. that's incredible!
it was fun being around it but i was at college during some of that time. i know how hard he worked and how good they were to him. he got a great education and great job from playing ball so basketball sort of gave him a great life. im proud of him
i loved those days of basketball...and this team reminds me of the old days how they never give up and how they play hard ball...I was lucky to have been around the sport and to have met some of the guys at oregon. they were nice guys who worked hard. I was so proud of my step brother going to summer league and trying for the nba. I am glad he was part of european basketball history...maybe he helped teach them waht he learned and im sure he learned from them. I know he learned about another culture and how hard europe was back then as he traveled in communist countries....basketball is a great sport and it has opened the doors for a lot of young men....that is why i support these guys I have a rough idea what they are going thru having witnessed it first hand as a sister to a ball player.
