A couple of days later Dan Majerle—former Suns star, current college coach, no Googling required—came up during a camp game and said, “Nico, Grand Canyon University is offering you a scholarship. Now go back to the game.” San Francisco came next, sight unseen, followed by Utah State and Utah, Pace’s alma mater. This meant Nico had six scholarship offers before he’d played a game in high school, which Pace deems “crazy” but is not all that uncommon. High-profile middle schoolers have been targeted for years, going back to 2003, when Taylor King accepted an offer to UCLA before his first high school game. More recently, LeBron James Jr., who is 10, reportedly received college offers, which understandably pissed off his dad. And there exist websites already covering “The Class of 2027”, also known as second graders. The fact that all this happens does not make it right, much less beneficial in any way to the still-developing boys, only legally allowable.
Already bypassed when the Suns named the ill-equipped Lindsey Hunter to replace Gentry, Majerle told the Arizona Republic, of potential overtures from the Suns, “We’ll cross that bridge when it comes to it. I doubt that we will. But if it happens, I’ll have to sit down and think about what’s best for me.” Majerle’s team, in its third season in Division I, recently had a 12-game winning streak snapped.
While he had many color commentators over the years, in 1993 Albert called a game with a young man who would easily become his most famous partner ever (sorry Eddie Johnson). That’s right, that year Jon Stewart put on the headset and saddled up to the broadcast table to call the third annual B-Ball Jam, a game that also featured Suns Dan Majerle, Oliver Miller, the Gorilla, the Suns Dancers and future Suns Cliff Robinson and Jimmy Jackson. (Miller was the best of the bunch though as he wore a backwards hat and an earpiece where Stewart and Albert could talk to him at the free-throw line. Well, that is, if you don’t count GM Tiffani Amber Thiessen who was my game MVP. #KellyKapowski4ever)
