Russell Westbrook Misses the Exit
As a kid, I remember going to a Connecticut Pride game to watch Kevin Ollie and one night, Jeff Van Gundy happened to be there. The Pride were a Continental Basketball Association team that dropped off the planet in 2001, but it was some solid basketball, and the closest thing to a professional sport since the Whalers left in 1997.
At halftime, my dad walked me down to the court, and right up to Van Gundy to ask for his autograph. From what I remember, he was a wicked nice guy and signed my program. After seeing this commercial, I have never been so happy to have his autograph.
