    Nice one. Really think our fortunes were changed when LL and MW were kicked out of the NBA.

    Thanks tinman as it took me back to those years. I see and eerie similarity with him and Chandler with regards to impact to the team. Not necessarily how they play but the general contributions to the team.

    thanks for posting. i've forgotten the circumstances of how he came to the rockets from Oakland, but i remember he stole the show in Sampson's debut in '83. Tommy Heinsohn went nuts over him.

    Fitch, Sampson, Lloyd were all new that year.

    Thanks, Tin.

    I forgot how athletic LL was. What I remember about him was that sweet, high-arcing jumper he had.

    Those were the days. :)

    I remember him being a fantastic finisher. If he had the ball in the open court you knew he was going to score every time.

    Sweet Lew, as I recall Gene Peterson always calling him...as long as I'm recalling correctly.

    Sweet shooter (really good shooter), smooth player, sweet finisher at the rim. :)

    Absolutely disgusting how Pat Riley was the main catalyst for getting them expelled from the NBA. They'll never say outright it was him...but it was him.

    Lew Lloyd was a straight up street baller who somehow fit in. He used to roll with a posse too. The players used to come out the back entrance of the Summitt and Lloyd often came out the door wearing a fur coat.

    I remember the time that LLoyd, his brother and a friend were staying at Stouffers right by the Summit. They ran up a $50K bill that LLoyd couldn't pay.

    On the court, Lloyd was the truth on the fast break.

    You recall correctly. He may have been Black Magic in Philly, but in Htown he was Sweet Lew. Gene' standard call, which was missing from the video, "Sweet Lew, dipsy doodle for two!!!"

    :cool:
