    That's funny stuff about his mom, btw.
    All you could do was shake your head when it came to JR. He was really something. Remember that shot he made when falling out of bounds, flipping it backwards underhanded...and from 30 feet it goes in! Lucky, of course but amazing.

    Yea, I remember that shot. That was crazy. His talent was off the charts. He could have been an all time great. Shooting, jumping, ball handling... he had it all.

    Patrick Reusse tells a story about when Bill Blair was the coach. He knew his days were numbered because McHale had brought in his buddy Flip and they all knew it was only a matter of time before Blair got fired and Flip moved to the bench.

    It's pre-season and they are doing the usual feel good stories and there's the story going around about how JR has finally gotten his act together and this is going to be his year. The story was told to Blair and it was a complete softball question where the coach can say some nice things about his guy. Blair's response was "JR Rider is a piece of $h!t""

    When your coach says that about you, and the season hasn't even started... that's not good.

    Great story. The "salty sea captain" had a way with words!
