Happy birthday, Cous.

The legends who have left us are out there somewhere with Red arguing the merits of a Durant trade.

Think he made 500 dollar his first contract..correct me if I’m wrong but ppl like JJ Redick is trash who call the older players plumbers..they had to work back in to support their families..Redick and others should thank Cousy & others

The Houdini of the Hardwood is 94 today.


and take note, all of his wizardry is performed while dribbling on top of the ball as the sport was meant to be played instead of palming the ball or bouncing it/catching it/bouncing it as the league currently permits.

Reggie Lewis.

He would have been 57 today.

From 1988-93, the Boston All-Star was 1 of 6 players to post 7.5K PTS, 1.5K REBS, 1K ASTS & 500 STLS.

The other 5 are; Chris Mullen, Karl Malone, Clyde Drexler, Charles Barkley & Michael Jordan.
