Taking the high road

If you try to find a youtube vid clip of the man who currently sits in 18th spot on the NBA’s list for ‘Most Points Scored’ in a career … you will not find even one spectacular play.

However … if you also want to know, without a shadow of a doubt what it means to be a ‘Scorer‘ in this League … you need look no further than … this same man, right here.

A.D. finally makes it into the Basketball Hall Of Fame:
“I think one of my assets was the ability to stay focused and stay mentally tough,” Dantley said. “When you get traded, it affects a lot of players, and they struggle. You get down when you get traded and you have to stay focused.”

That kind of strength allowed Dantley to look at being passed over for the Hall of Fame six times with humor instead of bitterness.

All this corner has to say is …

“It’s about time … cause That Man could put the ball in the basket, as well as anybody else who has ever played the game.”

Kudos to Mr. Adrian Dantley.
