Default Re: Would You Take This Bet--- From Pistol Pete?

I'd take it, watch him do it for 10 minutes, have a friend bump into him, and make him cough up $5.

thanks for the tip s-mav.

pistol's description of himself as a "basketball android" was pretty accurate.

yes-- all those basketball drills starting at 3 years old made him perhaps the best dribbler and then shooter and way ahead of his time. but it all took its toll in the various relationships in his life

his alcoholic mother dying was perhaps the saddest casualty in the hoops obsessed family
