Tree Rollins


Tree was from Cordele.

Cordele was a racial hotbed until they realized that Tree could play some basketball. Everybody gets along fine over there now.

He was or still is a coach in the WNBA.

where's Cordele located at ?


Not quite midway between Macon and the Florida line.

When Tree was looking at colleges, apart from getting him a car and about $60,000, Clemson head coach Tates Locke actually invented a phony black fraternity in order to fool Tree into thinking he'd have a social life on the mostly white campus that had only been integrated a decade earlier.
