Kevin Willis was one of the many great players selected in the 1984 NBA Draft (Jordan, Hakeem, Barkley, Stockton, Otis Thorpe, Sam Perkins, Jerome Kersey, Michael Cage, Vern Fleming, Alvin Robertson amongst the others). Cursed with tiny hands and short arms for a 7-footer, Willis found himself splitting time between both, playing PF/C and also starting/coming off the bench for the first 6 years of his career. Over that span, only once did he crack 30 minutes per game.
Ed. note: Lewis is running for the New Jersey state senate not the U.S. Senate
Carl Lewis has declared his intentions to seek the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey. Well, this is basketball news because nearly 20 years ago, Carl gave us all something to remember at New Jersey Nets basketball game.
Uh-oh is right, Carl. Anyhoo, if you enjoyed that vocal exposition, you'll love Carl's big 80s hit, "Break it Up".
Bill Russell is rightfully regarded as the best defensive big man in league history. Well, second to Russell in this category is Hakeem Olajuwon. Most hoopsters are aware that Olajuwon is the all-time blocks leader, but little do most know that Hakeem, at #8, is the only center in the top 10 (and 15, 25, 40) on the all-time steals list. Next closest center is David Robinson at #44. Hakeem will likely go down as the only player to ever amass 2000+ steals (2162) and blocks (3830)
