For those that never got to see David Thompson, take the time to search the net for a look. He was truly the first Skywalker.

Yup, I thought the same thing. Also thought it was a heck of an old reference.

Check out Connie Hawkins also. The sad thing is that such a small amount of his games were televised. A little like Pele in that regard.

Actually he is. But he'll be in the stands.

Good thing, too.

(Watching those highlights I now remember that the dunk was banned in college basketball at the time. That's why David is always laying the ball in instead of jamming it.)

If they'd like to suit up an 87 year old man, then by all means.
