:08 I am stealing a page from Brotha Ash here but I was hanging out with future Judge Leah Williams Duncan and her fabulous family “Ma Williams”, Magic Mike, and the crew. over at Young Bros. on North Side. Great time and really great chicken. Good luck Leah!:07 Had a chance to see some of the old ballers at the get-together. “Magic Mike” Williams, “Dr. J.

Ely” one of the best small forwards to ever play around here by way of Virginia and Point Park College. He would dunk on ya! Why do you think they called him Dr. J.:04 Speaking of fix ups, this one is overdue and on point. Four of the best to ever, ever, ever play. Kevin “Murph” Murphy out of McKeesport and the late great Warnie Macklin. 5th Avenue’s finest. The man who led the nation’s #1 high school team and helped make Sam Clancy and Bill Clark the legends they became. Both could do it all, shoot, handle, pass, “D”-up and had huge hearts. And by the way of New York, the great George Allen who starred at Pitt and single handedly destroyed Georgetown and the Great Pat Ewing… not once but twice. Last but not least the late, great, great Larry “Byrd” Richardson. “Byrd” because he could fly on the court. I could write another ten pages and still not be able to tell how great he was. But I’ll tell ya this, he was “Magic Johnson” long before there ever was aMagic Johnson, only difference, he was only 5’9…. But he played like 6’9.:03 Boston still wins the East, take it to the bank.:02 Don’t forget if you’re looking for the perfect place to take your mom.
