I will always remember you as a sonic.You were the most tenacious defender I ever saw play.I was a poor kid who got lucky enough to see the sonics play against Wilt Chamberlain.I know you two were old friends because I saw you shake hands and joking around.

I know it is nearly 3 years since "Wonderful Walt " has passed on but, I think about him everyday and will think about everyday until I die.

He was my boyhood hero. His picture from Sports Illustrated graced my bedroom door, I wore sweatbands , rolled my socks the same way he did, made the same facial features when I played, wore number 42 when I could.

I played in high school and college. I coached Jr. college basketball and did it his way, with class.

Then I had the PLEASURE to meet him at a final 4 in Seattle , Washington when he got the UCLA job. We had a drink and I told him about my admiration for him. He was humbled that a layman like me admired him so. I had a friend take picture of us and the smile I have on my face would win any contest in America pertaining to smiles. That same friend had



that blown up for me and gave it to me for a Christmas gift.

I still having it hanging with all my sports awards.

Finally, we both are Kappas and that bought us great joy. Even thou this may never be read because of its tardiness , it has given me joy to write and say REST IN PEACE and MAY GOD BLESS YOU>>>> The greatest basketball player ever.
