one of my favorite NBA stars growing up. If I remember correctly, he had extraordinarily large hands (with an extra joint on each finger).
OT-Spencer Haywood changed history
Yes he did.
I read it somewhere else, but this link is where I found it just now.
In other words, he was a mutant. I wonder what his hidden X-power was? It might have had something to do with flight.
I was just thinking of those Pershing teams which included Ralph Simpson (great ABA player) and were coache by the legendary Will Robinson. They were a little before my time, I was 6 in 1967, but I heard countless stories from my brother about Pershing. I have included a link here telling the story of Pershing
What I will always remember about Spencer Haywood is he was reputed to able to dunk over the backboard. Don't know if it was true but some things etch into your memory.
