Fat Level was awesome.

Swen Nater played for the clippers

Chuck Nevitt was like 7'5" and was the 12th man on the Pistons

never heard of Ernie DiGregorio


Ernie D was a scrawny white boy who played for the Buffalo Braves.

Wasn't Ernie D involved in some point shaving/gambling scandal in college?

I'm not sure who you're thinking about, but Ernie DiGregorio was clean. As a hometown boy made good, he was probably Providence's biggest hometown sports hero for many years, even after leaving the NBA. He was on Providence's Final Four team in 1973 and was the NBA Rookie of the Year with the Buffalo Braves in 1973-74 when he led the league in assists and free throw percentage after being the #3 pick in the draft. Ernie D got tagged as Ernie No D early on due to his poor defensive play. He faded quickly after that rookie season and was out of the NBA after the 1977-78 season.

A few random thoughts -

Ernie Digregorio had the blackest game for a white guy ever.  But alas, he earned the nickname "Ernie No-D".  He played at Providence with noted headcase and ubertalent Marvin "Bad News" Barnes and Kevin Stacom, who became the Celtics designated thug off the bench.

When I would see him in the ABA, Swen Nater was a hothead with a short temper who was never shy about responding to a provocation or throwing a punch.  For a big guy, he could really fight.  Somewhere along the way, probably during his Milwaukee years right after the merger, he became born again and pacified and had totally lost that edge by the time he came to the Lakers.

Dennis Awtrey had a long NBA career based primarily on the fact that he got the better of Lew Alcindor - Kareem Abdul Jabbar at least twice on national television.  Not in basketball, in fights.  The guy was tough.

Sidney Wicks was hampered by being in the closet for his entire career.  Having the living shit beaten out of him by 5'9" Calvin Murphy on national television didn't help matters, but Murphy beat the shit out of a lot of guys.

Moses Malone and Bobby Jones are probbaly my two favorite players ever who aren't Dr. J, and that '83 Sixers team is by far my favorite team ever.

You have to be really old to remember how very good Billy Cunningham was as a player.  Very few white guys could jump like he could Tom Chambers and Bobby Jones comparing to him in that regard.

Both Chuck Nevitt and Spud Webb played here at NC State.  Nevitt was just a tall duffus while Webb could really freaking play.

Just one, with the Lakers in 1985.

Nevitt was the subject of the first quote which made me realize Jim Valvano was actually a pretty bright guy.  Nevitt weighed like 190 his freahman year at NC State and was injuredduring practice.  During a press briefing Valvano said " It's a muscle pull, so the bad news is he'll be out for a little while.  The good news is it confirms he has a muscle."

I think that Gone_Fishing is thinking of Mike Smrek, a Canisius College grad who was a 12th man 7'0 white guy on a couple of those Lakers teams in the 80s as well.
