You played your rookie year alongside Meadowlark Lemon. What are your fondest memories of him as a teammate? Lou Dunbar: It was great playing with someone that you had idolized on television. He definitely revolutionized our showmanship and was just all around a great guy. I remember when he would do his hook shot and make the crowd go crazy. He was definitely the star.
