George Gervin Rumors

It is an online auction that will feature more than a dozen collectibles from the commercials.

San Antonio proved something to DeRozan before he had even played a game for the Spurs. It came in the form of a mural of him in a Spurs jersey. The art, created by San Antonio graffiti artist Nik Soupe, was so surprising DeRozan thought it had been doctored. “I start seeing it go up everywhere, and it just tripped me out because I hadn’t been to San Antonio yet and they put me on a wall that got David Robinson, Tim [Duncan], the Iceman [George Gervin],” DeRozan says. “You got all these greats up here, and it’s like that’s where the term comes in. Prove ’em. You want to go out there and just prove to the fans my appreciation, because something like that, for it to be stood up there like that is definitely cool.”
The colorful legacy of the American Basketball Association will be celebrated at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on April 7, 2018, when the ABA’s 50th reunion is held. All proceeds will go to the Dropping Dimes Foundation, an Indianapolis-based charity that assists former ABA players, coaches, and team employees in need of financial or health care assistance. The event will bring a retro ABA All-Star weekend feel to downtown Indianapolis. Many of the league’s greatest players and coaches are scheduled to attend, including former Pacers legend George McGinnis and legendary Pacers coach Slick Leonard, Julius Erving, Spencer Haywood, Dan Issel, George Gervin, and Artis Gilmore. NBC announcer Bob Costas will serve as master of ceremonies. During the program, the list of the ABA’s all-time 50 greatest players will be announced, as voted on by a media panel.
“This is better than the NBA,” offered Drexler, a coach of the team called Power. “This is more fun because we’re older and we can enjoy it more. When you’re young, it’s life or death. Now, you have a better balance, a better focus. You get to have fun. And you’re around guys you’ve known 30, in my case, 40 years. So, it doesn’t get any better. When I see The Glove (Payton) or Ice (George Gervin) or Julius (Erving), that’s our fraternity.”
