Sitting across the court from me at the Merrell Center is none other than one of my all-time favorite basketball players. A.C. Green not only set the record for consecutive games without missing a start (1,192) but only missed three in his 14 years of play. A large portion of those years were spent as the backbone of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Green played alongside such greats as Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and more. These are the guys that won five titles in the 80’s.
He is in town to watch his nephew (Kevyn Green) who plays for the Southeastern Louisiana Lions.
