I asked Brent Barry about this in last night’s show because it is one of my favorite YouTube mixes ever. He hadn’t seen it, so I figure this is the easiest way to make sure he has a chance to check it out.

You should watch it too, just so you can get a feeling of what a 6-foot-7 Pete Maravich with sporadically floppy hair would look like. I don’t remember him being this fancy, but I blame that on him being a West Coast guy during the paleolithic pre-League Pass era of the NBA.

That silly time difference cost us young kids some seriously great highlights back before we could choose our own bedtimes. Big ups to all the technological advances out there for letting us reassess what we may have missed.

  1. What a fantastic song choice!

  2. they should have let him play all season with his warmup jacket on

  3. Pure gold! The guy was so much fun to watch. And evenly cool to listen to as a broadcaster :)

  4. wow i remember him being an ok NBA player. but he looks like an allstar here.

  5. I knew he had some flash outside of his Spurs days, but I don’t remember him passing like that! …and the move at 1:47 is straight out of a streetball game. He was definitely a good player with a diverse skillset, but if someone only saw this highlight reel, they might think he was the one of the greatest to ever play the game!
