Barry Kramer had retired from the NBA and was vacationing in south Florida. One day, he decided to go to the park and take part in a pickup game. When he got there, sides were being chosen, and some of the players were yelling which NBA star they would be emulating on the court. “I’m Oscar Robertson.” Shouted one guy. “I’m Jerry West”, yelled the second player. “I’m Barry Kramer,” shouted the next payer. Barry responded with, “No, I’m Barry Kramer.” End of story. The player had seen Kramer display his All-American skills at Madison Square Garden, when he was playing for NYU.
