Great memories, indeed.

I attended an event a few years back at the gym at UofH. Looking up at those banners in the rafters brought with it a certain chill. It's not all too often you get to be in the presence of greatness, so to speak.

Congrats to Clyde.
My first live basketball game - C. Drexler and the Trailblazers pummelling Dallas in Reunion Arena.

He was to Jordan what Ray Allen is to McGrady and Kobe.

He was an excellent player. One of the coolest moments I had with him recently is when I was vacationing in Portland, I was walking through the airport. My dad and I were going to the terminal and and notice a him sitting in one of the telephone booths talking on his cell phone. Didn't want to interrupt him so I waited awhile and actually got to talk to him for a few minutes. Real classy.
