Thanks so much for sharing that. Me & a buddy were coaching 9-10 year old jr. pro-basketball that year and won the city. I called Coach Earle and asked if we could get Louis to speak at a small banquet we were gonna have at a place in Mercury Plaza. He said Louis is too introverted, I’ll get you Bob Martin. Bob came with his then wife and was a huge hit with these young kids & their parents.
Anyway, Louis came up recently to one of those annual basketball games where they invite former players & coaches to attend & be recognized. After the game I went over and introduced myself. He could not have been any nicer or gracious. We probably talked for 10 minutes. He & Gregg Joyner probably my 2 favorite players from that era.
