I’ve taken a lot of criticism over the past few years for considering Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (formerly Chris Jackson) the greatest college scorer and best freshman ever. Also, for agreeing with Phil Jackson about the Steph Curry comparison and saying, “If you like the way Steph Curry plays then you will love Rauf.” Today, I get to remind those same people of my appreciation for Rauf by sharing this awesome video of him conducting a shooting session, while wearing a Steph Curry shirt, and shouting out things like, “If It don’t go all net it don’t count!”
Damn, I miss this guy. A guy who scored 48 and 53 in his first month of his college career, 55 a month later and ended his season with the NCAA freshman scoring record; A guy who dropped 39 points and 10 assists on Jason Kidd one week after putting up 51 on John Stockton, which came a few weeks after putting up 30 points, 20 assists and 8 rebounds; A guy who did a lot of things in the 90s that players are praised for today.
