The first superstar athlete I ever saw in person. Rest In Peace, extraordinarily big man.

So what about Bob?

Guy had a nice outside touch, decades before most big men did. I remember him winning the NBA One-on-One tournament.

Didn't expect a "live laugh love" in a tribute to a basketball player

I always wondered if he was cool with that joke.

same here.   I'm guessing he got a good laugh out of it.   Great player and, by all accounts, great guy.

Why wouldn't he be? It was basically saying that dealing with Lanier and Walton on the court was very difficult and that's why Kareem sometimes looked a little slow

I parsed that as Bill Laimbeer and got confused by the pictures in the article.

Are you insinuating that all Pistons look the same?

"No, Bob.  THOSE were the two biggest feets in basketball!"

I'm sorry, son, but you must have me confused with someone else. My name is Roger Murdock. I'm the co-pilot.

Something like that I guess.  Or maybe it was my moment of Zen, "all are one with the Pistons"

@buckeyebrain: Exactly.  Youtube, Bob Lanier and Dave Cowens, MillerLite beer commercial.  It evokes  a sensible chuckle.

/ Ah, memories.
