40 Years Ago Today

The Atlanta Hawks, featuring Lou Hudson, Bill Bridges, Walt Bellamy, and rookie guard Pete Maravich visited the Phoenix Suns on Christmas Day.

An orgy of turnovers and missed free throws. Ugly. I had jumped on the Hawks bandwagon during a period of relatively high quality b-ball (67) ... so, this brings back that visceral disappointment when they added Bellamy and Maravich, underachieving every step. I went on to live in N'Awlins '73-'76 and enjoyed watching the horrid newcomers JAZZ "led" by a gunning Maravich, who did nothing more than shoot shoot shoot.
