As a 1st cousin but 16 years younger than Phil, I hardly knew him from personal contact at occasional Christmas and Easter encounters. I do recall as a young athlete in Cleveland meeting people who knew of his basketball play at Lakewood High School.
One time before a game a referee called my name. Thankfully I wasn't yet in trouble. He said "Are you related to Phil, the great basketball player?'
I proudly said "yes he is my cousin."
