George "George Yardley" Yardley
I think they must have called him "GY12" in his day.
In addition to wearing that number I also found out he was the first player to score 2,000 pts in a season!
Unfortunately he shot 41.4% while doing this.
One of the fun things about playing with this decade is going out and learning about the players.
Sometimes it's guys you've heard of, but don't know much, if anything, about...sometimes it's guys you've never heard of (unless you're really into 50/60's basketball or have done this decade before).
Either way, 98.9% of them couldn't shoot and did't want to pass. Also, were short white guys in even shorter shorts. :)
"At 6'5", Yardley was a good-sized forward in 1950s basketball and was described as 'an offensive-minded player with a knack for scoring..."
HAHAHA. I hope they mean scoring with women, because, well...41.4%.
