Tiny Archibald Rumors

Nate “Tiny” Archibald, one of the best players in NBA history and arguably the greatest little man ever, talked for an hour last week in a small auditorium/cafeteria to a group of captivated middle school students at the innovative Imagine Charter School. Not once did he mention basketball. Didn’t need to. Didn’t plan to. Doesn’t even like to. That’s not his message anymore. That ticket to fame flamed out long ago. At age 62, Archibald continues to reinvent himself through a slow but startling transformation, from a Hall of Fame player who retired in 1984 into one of the most educated, most academically driven ex-athletes in America today.
