Few of you will remember this guy. I played basketball against him in the mid-60's PSL, Mumford vs. Pershing H.S. (we won in double OT--iirc) took his case for early entry into the league all the way to the supreme court. check it out:

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.
