Not at your level- Curtis Williams and Doug Newburg. Shot around with Lamp

Newburg was in 1996 North Grounds--- still hit from wherever on the court he felt like

Williams was just a Freshman at Mem GymI got stuck guarding him since I was the tallest one on our team. Dumb rule"well he is tall and you are tall so you guard him"! Wish somebody had said "well, he is quick, so maybe someone quick should guard him"

Jeff Lamp was just shooting around one day in mem gym so I joined him for a shoot around (mostly just rebounding for him).Since I was a big Lamp fan in my early teens, this was pretty cool for me. Though, a little weird-- you grow up thinking of folks like this as being huge, but I am his height, so, he just seemed a normal sized person to me--- not the giant figure in my mind. Stood next to Tiger Woods, Emmet Smith, Steve Young-- them all tiny people!

Dikembe and Shaq-- now they made me feel small
