    The former Knick and Mav played in a time when the NBA was, in my opinion, far more fun to follow.
    Little if any high schoolers or one-and-doners.
    College ball and the NBA had a much different makeup back then.

    RIP Pat Cummings and condolences to family and friends.

    Agreed on all counts.

    A solid pro.

    Yeah. I wonder if/how Pat Cummings would fit in today's NBA.

    When I was at law school in Morningside Heights, he showed up for the 8 am weekend runs maybe 10 times one year. It was a year after his NBA career ended. He was average speed even for that game but I swear I never saw him miss a shot.

    A banger who could score, though I don't remember him from his Bucks and Knicks days as being the most nimble guy in the world.

    RIP to a man I enjoyed watching.

    About 18 feet from the hoop hitting shots in front of lazy centers.

    Wore No. 6 with the Bucks if I remember right. RIP.

    Yes, No. 6. And if I recall correctly, the nickname Eddie Doucette gave him was "Roadblock." Eddie gave out so many great nicknames. Also first coined the term "skyhook" with Lew Alcindor/Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
