The Alabama Slammer

I was just thinking about this the other day, and given some of the debates recently thought I would share.

He remains one of my all-time favourite players, probably just ahead of Grace.
Great Player, great ambassador for his team and the game.

Plus, a very humble, loyal, and considerate gentleman.

Now consider this. He was born in 1960.

So he spent the 60's growing up,
as a talented black kid,
in Wilcox County, Alabama.

I loved going into his sports store as a kid, he'd always be there chatting to fans and was a genuine nice guy.

Ok I'll rephrase what I wrote originally since it was deleted:

Where is JC living now - in the US or AU? Hopefully he is doing well.

Hes back home living in the US. He still has a keen interest in the NBL and follows the wildcats

Not surprised a Perthworld post got deleted

His deleted post was not even close to what he "rephrased" above. He was throwing more mud at people based off zero evidence.
