Most of you who read this blog (I'm old school...I call it a column) know that I try to be in tune to the history of the game.
It's why I enjoy writing a daily feature on WOAI and The Ticket called "Spurs Playback", where I look back at an event or a game that happened on that particular date. My 21 year old son Karl, however, is much more of a basketball historian that I am.
He has read lots of books on the old ABA and even has a collection of ABA jerseys that includes Connie Hawkins, Marvin "Bad News" Barnes, and George "The Iceman" Gervin.
When he learned that Hubie Brown was the analyst for ESPN Radio last season during the Western Conference Finals, he wanted to show off his 1975 Artis Gilmore jersey from the Kentucky Colonels. Hubie coached that Colonels team to the ABA title and he still wears his championship ring.
Coach Brown thought it was cool that a young fellow who was born 15 years after the ABA folded knew all about Louie Dampier, Dan Issel, and Artis Gilmore.
Now if I can just get him to focus on his Biology Class at Texas State!
