    Back in the day, when the NBA belonged to the big men.
    Lanier, Artis Gilmore, Wes Unseld, Willis Reed, some guy named Alcindor.
    One of my earliest basketball memories is watching Big Bob Lanier lead his St. Bonaventure team in the NCAA tournament. I think I was 8 or 9, but I just remember St. Bonaventure was a "weird name for a school"..
    He was really good.
