Mr. Pog - I'm a Laker and UCLA fan. Our book club is reading Bill Walton's autobiography. He mentions when he was a high school teenager he played in an exhibition game at The Forum before a Laker - Celtics game. Walton had a "lights out" game as usual.
As he was shyly walking off the court passing the pros, he felt a tap from behind on his shoulder - it was Bill Russell ! He said, "Great game, kid, we'll be seeing you soon up here ! " It meant the world to him !
