    KAREEM ABDUL JABBAR IN HS


    https://youtu.be/-rYSXtkyY3U
    Goaltending wasn't a rule yet?

    Who's the 7' white dude on the other team?
    HAHA, that's funny because that was two things I noticed in the Video too. 

    Both schools are NO longer(which I'm sure you know Tempo living in NY)
    My friends father went to the same school as Kareem.  Said he was a jerk back then.  He was a big deal though.
    I  know someone who lives in NY and saw him play in HS.  He scouts HS basketball and he's been at it for a LONG time.

    Here he is talking a little about Kareem:

    This was VERY interesting to watch.  Thanks for posting!

    So you actually know Tom Konchalski?  
    Yes it is interesting. Did you watch the whole video?

    Yes, I do know Tom. He's a great evaluator of talent but is even a better person.  The man has NO ego. He's in it for all of the right reasons: The kids that play! Still sharp as anything . His memory is unbelievable. I'm big into HS hoops and that's how I got to know him.  It SUCKS with this Virus shit as I usually see him this time of year, and my other Hoop Junkies, at an EVENT not far from where I live. 

    Oh yeah, Tom saw Connie Hawkins play in the street/playgrounds of the City.

    Yes I watched the whole thing.  When he was mentioning who the best HS ball players he watched I completely forgot that they were NY City kids.  I like that he mentioned Hurleys coaching too.

    As for HS hoops the only 2 players I had actually followed were Jason Kidd when I was living in Cali at the time and Lebron.

    Yeah, Hulrey one of a very few HS Coaches in the HOF.

    I didn't see Jason Kidd play in HS but saw LeBron  4 or 5  times.

    Jason Kidd was a big deal. He was front page of the Sports section after the McDonalds game.  Big write up on him.

    Followed him then through college and the draft but after the Jim Jackson thing I lost interest.  Enter Allen Iverson, Shareef Abdul-Rahim, Ray Allen, Stephon Marbury, Marcus Camby and Kobe Bryant into the league for one of the best draft classes I can remember.

    This Sunday at 9.  The Last Dance 10 part miniseries is starting.  I can't wait.

    I had no idea that camera crews had that much access that year.  Should be some good stuff in there!

    Last Dance should be amazing.  I remember everyone pretty much knew that was the end even at the beginning of the season.  and Game 6 of the Finals was the same night as the PJ Tibetan Freedom show. 

    Saw that squad in 1996.  So good

    I was watching Iverson go for 50 at Cleveland in '97 on NBA Tv last night.

    Took it for granted at the time, but man it's so refreshing to watch a basketball game without music blaring throughout the arena non stop.

    Weird isnt it?   Remember when it actually someone playing the organ?  

    If they come back with no fans i wonder if they’ll still play music

    The Hawks will probably pipe in crowd noise, they can get pointers down the street.

    That is a great question. You think they will play that nonsense with no fans?

    Do they play it for the pick up games?

    I went to a Knicks game and I remember NOT being able to hear the players and I would have been better off watching from home.  I had good seats too.

    The Knicks did a quiet game a few years ago.  You heard sneakers squeak and everything. The players didnt like it.

    That would be a dream come true. 

    All I really care about is the music during game action, but this is great.

    How on Earth do the LA Lakers qualify as a small business?
    And why would they even apply for one of these loans knowing the kind of press it might generate.

    A small business should have 250 or less employees unless they changed the definition?

    It is basically free money as long as you used it for it's intended use.  Every business should have applied for it actually.

    No wonder that program ran out of money. The Lakers are worth billions of dollars. Fuck them.
