    I've met Cal on a couple of occasions. Nice guy, but understandably a bit guarded. I also was fortunate enough to cross paths with Mike Bordick several times. Really down to earth guy. Kids would come up to him while we were just chatting it up and he would sign autographs in the most polite way. He made all those kids feel pretty special.

    Just saw Cal's daughter at the gym I belong to in Harford County. She's
    an arobics instructor there and gorgeous like her mom. She's very
    friendly and just smiled at me. Unlike with the chick in the pic I just said hi and kept
    on going. Didn't want Cal kicking my ass.

    Cal met his wife when her mother saw Cal at a restaurant or some place and asked for
    his autograph and said it was for her daugher. He said if she looks anything like you I want to meet her or words to that effect and she set them up and they got married.

    True!

    Met Tony Kukoc in Atlanta in 1996 during the Olympics, he was at a bar called Lou Lou's bait shack. He was talking to girls and the guy I was with, (a Delaware Grad) was the best guy at picking up women I have ever seen. He started talking with Kukoc and Kucoc tried to blow him off. This guy was very quick witted and proceeded to verbally destroy Tony and the girls were laughing at him. You're no Scotty Pipen, stuff like that.Tony looked a little dejected but laughed and took it well.

    I used to go to Chris Webber's parties when he was a Bullet/Wizard.

    The dude was always high on weed but his parties were lights out because of the 12's that used to frequent his functions. Chris really didn't want to be bothered to the point that one party I went to he was approached by my buddy's GF who is drop dead gorgeous. She only wanted to meet and greet him but Chris could care less. As she started to get agitated she began to taunt Webber. Thankfully Chris was so high that he simply ignored her.

    I'm thinking to myself how the fuck would we have dealt with him if he became aggressive because this was a big dude. Rasheed Wallace was at the same party along with Joe Smith. Both were cool but larger than life.

    People talk crap all the time about these type of athlete's but don't realize how much they dwarf you and if they felt like it could probably put your lights out.

    I also met Gheorge Muresan who is the biggest human being I have ever seen.

    Saw LeBron in New Orleans at Essence Fest. He looks lean on TV but is massive and could easily be around 260lbs+.

    Webber used to swing by one of my friends house to knock boots with his mother lol.

    He always seemed cool to us and we got a lot of free Bullets stuff, but understandably was pretty distant considering he only showed up to get some from my friends mom lol

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Used to stay at the Marriott in Farmington, CT a lot and the ESPN folks stay there. Saw Jaws a few times, Keith Jackson, Ditka, Troy Aikman, Brent Musburger (complete ass) and a few others.

    Ditka couldn't have been nicer and I did not bother him other than to say he was one of my favs. Jaws and KJ joke around a lot. Troy wanted his own booth away from people but I suspect he's had a lot of attention and tires of it.

    I met Muresan too. I had a friend who worked for the Nets and the Bullets were in town. It's tough to take in someone that size. When I was a kid my friends and I saw Andre the Giant. That was the only similar person I had seen similar to Muresan. These guys are just massive. They really do come across as giants.
