Favorite RL Sports Moments: 1. Blazers winning title in 1977. 2. Rockets knocking off Lakers in western conference finals in 1986. Ralph Sampson hits the turnaround walk off jumper as time expired. Watching the game in Denny's back bar with my best friend, drinking Leowen Brau, and eating the free peanuts. Great sports moment. 3. Predicting the outcome of the 1983 NCAA final game. I was laughed at by my peers for taking NC State by a point over the Houston Phi Slamma Jamma's. Wish I had a $1,000 bucks on that game. 3A. Super Bowl 10. I took the Raiders and my little brother took the Vikings. Raiders won and he cried.

Book Collection: I have between 80 and 90 books on NBA basketball. BIOs etc. Favorite Authors: 1. David Halberstam, 2. John Feinstein, 3. Terry Pluto. Worst Author without question is Dennis Rodman all of his books are garbage. Best book: The Breaks of the Game by Halberstam. Favorite Book: Basketball the New Champs by Kent Hannon and illustrated by Charles Liese. This book is for young readers and it has profiles of early 70's Pro Basketball stars and future stars (some players that fizzled). The coolest thing about this book are colored 8x10 pictures, that look like were prints made from acrylic paintings, of each player. Liese's pictures look like Leroy Nieman's. Stars are: Austin Carr, Elmore Smith, Jim McMillian, George McGinnis, Julius Erving, Ralph Simpson, John Roche, Sidney Wicks, Johnny Neumann, Nate Archibald, Bob Lanier, and Dave Cowens. Never seen another copy of this little gem.
