1960s Jim Boeheim was a Greek God and I will not hear otherwise.

He looks better in this picture:

A sort of wirey strength. At least he looks like an athlete, not a student manager.

I watched Boeheim and Bing play. I remember the games at the old gym. JB had a great shot. He played as the two guard with Bing. Didn't handle the ball a lot, but didn't have to, Bing was the player for that.

Of course those were the days when we still had the Syracuse Nats playing at the War Memorial also. GREAT times!

The Nat's last season was 1962-63: http://www.sportsecyclopedia.com/nba/syracuse/nats.html

JB was a freshman walk-on that year who couldn't have played for the varsity.

Nike needs to bring back the belt.
