FAVORITE WIS MOMENT - making the top 25. you guys are good, i'm proud to be in the same group.
WORST WIS MOMENT - Thinking I had the winning formula figured out and entering a joes vs pros league with most of the top 25 and getting my *** handed to me. Only time I never made the playoffs. Wasn't even close.
SIDE STORY - A good friend of our family is Jim Davies, son of the late Bob Davies. (point guard for the only championship team of the Kings franchise) He couldn't believe it when I told him his dad would be making between $3.5 and $4.5M if he was playing today. Bob Cousy once said that Bob Davies was his idol growing up. Davies actually invented the behind the back pass, but Cousy was the one who made it famous. I once asked Bob if he could compete in the NBA today. His response was that athletes rise to the level of their competition, and never underestimate the heart of a champion. But when I played the 1951 Royals against the 2009 Lakers they got their butts kicked.
