Pete Maravich's first game ...Oscar Robertson, Lew Alcindor, Walt Bellamy, Lou Hudson etc...

Recommended Posts

This is  very cool.  A  good quality complete game video of Pistol Pete's first game as a pro.  The lineups for the two teams are outstanding. Oscar Robertson, Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul Jabbar) in his second year,  Walt Bellamy,  Pete Maravich, Lou Hudson (who should be in the Hall of Fame, having averaged 20+ points per game over 13 seasons) and also Lucius Allen, Bob Boozer , Bill Bridges, Bob Dandridge ------ all of whom were very fine players. Maravich doesn't start the game.  He scores his first points at the 25:30 mark of this video.  He was supposedly 6'5" and 200 .lbs but looks pretty  skinny here.

The aesthetics of that eras play is so awkward.

 

It looks like an WNBA game

I didn't know Pistol Pete started on the Hawks.  I do remember him on the New Orleans Jazz though.
