Ricky 'Rainman' Jones footage.. Heritage round

I'm not sure what the NBL are planning for this years Heritage round (round 15) apart from some retro jerseys.. But we (ATF) will be uploading some old NBL footage as well as touching base with some legends of the game.

Here's a taste of something for the old Suns/Crocs fans.

Any ideas feel free share!

Wow, that brings back memories. One of the best imports we have had. He rocked the Furnace back then.

Great footage. Loved it back then. Hard rebounding, following your shot, dunking it EVERY chance you got. We have 7 footers that lay it up these days!! Bring back the jam.

I went to every game that Ricky played. Those were the great days of NBL. In his first year the Hammer dropped 63 on us. But Ricky did have a massive dunk over Leroy.

I just hope the NBL can get back to those days.

Heal had 61 and they were in different games. The dunk on Leroy was the first ever game at The Swamp

Also, don't forget that defense was pretty lackluster back then. It made offensive players look pretty damn good.

Those were the days, as much defense as an all star game, no boxing out and players not afraid to throw alley oops in the half court rather than running boring sets.
