Friday Frivolity: Kurt Rambis, the First NBA Hipster

Before the NBA’s current stars began fashioning nifty glasses and sweater vests in the post-game press conferences and on the sidelines, there was Darrell Kurt Rambis, the man with the horn-rimmed glasses.

I’m sure Kurt is upset he didn’t get a single vote from players interviewed in the video above from The Basketball Jones. Maybe if he had played for the Blazers or Sonics he would have received a mention.

Outgoing TTM Requests, August 20th

Requests that I am sending out tomorrow, August 20th:

Jerry West, 14-time NBA All-Star, 1968-69 NBA Finals MVP (only to ever win award on losing squad), 1972 NBA Champion, 15th on NBA All-Time Points list
Gail Goodrich, 5-time NBA All-Star, 1973-74 All-NBA 1st team, 1972 NBA Champion

Although I’ve yet to get a signed return on a Topps Murad card, I expect they will look pretty sharp signed.
