People don't know because they are retarded and they don't know the history of the NBA but Cousy used to be a very badass. He was more badass than the Pistons from the 80's.

Hmmm. Cousey traded Oscar Robertson from Cincinnati for Floyd Robinson and Charlie Paulk (ever heard of them? Paulk on played only four seasons) before the 1970-71 season. In his career, Oscar scored 26,710 points (25.7 ppg), gathered 7,804 rebounds (7.5 rpg) and dealt 9,887 (9.5 apg) assist. The year Cousey traded Oscar, Robertson's new team had a league-best 66–16 record, including a then-record 20-game win streak, had a dominating 12–2 record in the playoffs and crowned their season with the NBA title by sweeping the Baltimore Bullets 4–0 in the 1971 NBA Finals. Interesting that the black superstars of the era see Cousey differently than he sees himself..at least now and in retrospect. We are all in charge of our own story.

Sorry but Russel is not top 10. Look at the game he played in. People try to trash the 90s, but sheesh the 50 and 60s were awful. I literally would dominate Bob Cousy easily. I'm dead serious too I would embarass him.

He was intimidated by how great Bill Russell was. And the potential he had. Some people will befriend someone they feel like are no threat to them or their existence.... but will try to shit on a person who they feel threatened by.

So Bob didn't care what Bill had to say in response or whether he accepted his letter as an apology or not. He got his closure & cleared his conscience simply by writing the letter & putting it in his own book to give to him... Smh

Plus he's recognizing that he could've done more which is commendable. I'm sure Russell would've appreciated his support as a face of the league back then but it is what it is at this point. If anything, it sounds like he was intimidated by Russell too and didn't know how to relate to him. He's like 5'11 and an introvert and Russell was 6'10 and outspoken.

I survived cancer twice and lost half my face to amputation.. a tumor destroyed my jaw and changed everything.. I was labeled a freak. I decided to start over, move to Barcelona and start a youtube channel to inspire others who feel ugly and not good enough for this world.. Im living proof that it's all about energy and mindset.. with optimism and positive projection you can overcome any mental or physical hurdle. self love from within overpowers any physical shell! go check me out and subscribe if you want to help me grow. i want to give people a spark of change.

+kevin w UCLA-Prov would have been a very good game! Marvin Barnes was a bad ass for sure! Good ouside shooting teams gave UCLA's zone defense problems (Villanova in 71 final). Ernie D always seemed like a regular guy rather than a celebrity type. It's cool that you have that memory with him! Though I haven't lived in Seattle for 18 years, I remember Joe Hassett well! He was an excellent player and got some decent playing time off of the bench. He just Unfortunately got caught up in the numbers game, like a lot of good players do. Happy New Year to you!

seattwa hi from Prov RI, North Providence RI, Ernie's hometown had an incredible summer league at Fruit Hill courts, I spent summer of 72, I was 14, playing one on one with Ernie, if this makes sense he wasn't fast but quick, NO one since him can throw pinpoint behind the back passes with either hand, in 73, PC was in final four & would have went to championship against Bill Walton & UCLA, but Marvin Barnes hurt his knee, side note: dude on my high school got drafted by Seattle Supersonics, Joe Hassett, but no 3 pointer then, he got cut for Vinnie Johnson 🤔👍😇☺️
