Bob Cousy – Master of the Fast Break
There’s a great scene in the movie “Blue Chips” where Nick Nolte and NBA legend Bob Cousy are having a conversation while Cousy is shooting free throws. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t in the script for Cousy to make them all and for Nolte to say “do you ever miss” at the end of the scene but that’s what happened.
Even though Cousy was a good shooter, he’s most known for being the original showman and master ball handler who was making behind the back, over the head and no-look passes decades before Magic Johnson threw his first fancy assist in the NBA.
This new mix by Wilt Chamberlain Archive is easily the best Cousy mix I’ve ver seen and I know most people wont watch this 11 minute clip because it’s not in color or because it’s not HD or because the players don’t have longer shorts or because they are just close minded and only watch clips of LeBron or Kobe. But that’s too bad for them because this footage of the 13x All-Star, 8x assists leader and 6x NBA Champion is a must-watch.
