Remembering Pistol Pete Maravich on his Birthday
NBA Draft week is here, and there will be a lot going on with the Wizards … from the T’Wolves being very interested in acquiring the 5th, with shooter Mike Miller possibly coming to D.C., to some crazy goings-ons with the Knicks, to Gilbert Arenas’ former agent (Gil fired Dan Fegan so he could negotiate on his own), not wanting a couple of his top clients in the draft to be associated with the Wizards.
More on all of this to come ….
But, I wanted to take pause to remember Pete Maravich. June 22nd being his day of birth, The Pistol would have been 62 today had he not passed away in 1988 at the age of 40.
I’ve embedded a couple great YouTubes of Maravich below. Neither currently have sound, so I’m making some recommendations on what to listen to while watching the Pistol do his thing.
The first is from Maravich’s college days at Louisiana State, play Look Up by Zero 7 while watching.
Hope you enjoyed. R.I.P. Pistol … (now I gotta get to the two books I have about him that I’ve been meaning to read)
