A fond farewell to Wes Unseld….

When I think Center of Attention, I think Wes Unseld.

BOY COULD THE WIDE U CLEAN THE GLASS, AND DOUBLE BOY ON HOW HE COULD GRAB THAT DEFENSIVE REBOUND, HOLD IT ABOVE HIS ‘FRO, AND FLICK IT FULL COURT WITHOUT MUCH STRAIN … LIKE NOBODY BEFORE, AND NOBODY SINCE. ONLY 6 FOOT 7, HE USED EVERY BIT OF HIS PUNISHING 245, TO BULLY HIS WAY DOWN LOW AND MAKE THAT OUTLET PASS THROW. A HALL OF FAMER 7 YEARS AFTER HE LEFT THE GAME, WES ALSO MADE THE PLAYOFFS AN AMAZING 12 STRAIGHT YEARS, WON AN NBA MVP, A ROOKIE OF THE YEAR (IN THE SAME YEAR, HIS FIRST!) AND A 1978 CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES MVP (TO GO ALONG WITH HIS NBA TITLE).
