    I don't think very many people have seen this video, but it's a very short video of an interview of Moses from 1979, and the only footage I've ever seen of the Summit pre-3pt line.

    At the risk of going slightly off-topic :

    If I'm not mistaken as to who she is, the woman at the 0:27 mark doing the interview is famous not only in Houston sports history, but national sports history.

    Anybody care to guess who she is and why she's famous? :grin:

    Not sure, but it may be Anita Martini -- one of the first female reporters (if memory serves) allowed in the locker rooms back before it became acceptable.

    I remember (as a kid) listening to local sportstalk with her and Mike Edmunds. This is way back in ancient times before 24-hour sportstalk radio over multiple stations, etc...

    Yup. I believe that's her and she was the first female allowed into the lockerrooms of a major league team. I wasn't a big fan of Martini and Mike Edmonds' KPRC radio show (I used to listen to them while I was growing up, too) since I was a huge KTRH SportsBeat fan, but her contribution to broadcasting history is undeniable. Both of them seemed like cool people and died of cancer way too early.

    Lots of Houston history in that video in the OP when you include Nissalke's voice... former Rockets coach who was the NBA Coach of the Year back in the 70's.

    I think that's because he was always a bit of a shy person.

    Moses helped some young kid at UH improve his game.

    Thanks Moses.

    Brought Houston 2 MVP trophies. Something even the Dream himself didn't do (in spite of, of course, the rings).
