The 62-year-old Gervin had two immediate reactions when he learned of Thompson’s incredible feat. First: “I said, ‘Wowwwww, that’s pretty impressive.'” Then: “But I’d like to see him try to get 33 or 37 in a quarter when there wasn’t no three-point line.” Within seconds, Gervin’s friendly baritone gives way to a hearty, mischievous chuckle. The former high flyer and Hall of Famer, who still answers to the nickname Iceman, is speaking from pride, not bitterness, with an eye toward historical accuracy.
