These blogs show a grand legacy for Dan. I have incredibly fond memories of this gentle giant. Here are some to share. Walking down hallways, people would frequently look up and ask if he was a basketball player and he was humble by replying he did a while ago without going into details about how great he once was. He laughed when people would mistaken him for Tree Rollins. He had a deep booming voice that seemed tailor made for radio but he claimed that he had stuttered when he was younger and it would not work on the radio. He had a geat knowledge of NBA history that he and I would often debate about. He even found an error on an ESPN article years ago that they had to write a retraction about. Rounds told me that he would ask his coaches to defend the superstars of his era. This included a time when he chose to defend a white hot Larry Bird and told me that it was easy to guard him because he knew his moves but Larry still got his share of points. Dan claimed he was a far better baseball player in high school than basketball and that he thought he would make it further in baseball if not for his height. He was so dedicated to his wife, Bernie, who was so frequently at his side and often seemed to quietly admire her husband when adorIng fans would monopolize his time right in front of her. He was involved with charity work in the metro Atlanta area and thank him for exposing my nephew to one of his Tourets Syndrome basketball charities from his side on the bench. He was recently given a long deserved place in a Hall of Fame (Michigan Sports Hall of Fame) with the induction next week. He deserves the same in Georgia and with the Hawks for his overall contributions. I knew him well and my heart goes out to Bernie, Cory and Chris. Rounds has an immortal legacy that his family can always remember.
