Had a shoot with the former hornet today. Really nice guy. Had some good conversation about the bobcats and such.

He can still ball. We ran into a group of kids and he really connected to them and started coaching them up right there on the spot. It was fun to watch. Those kids gravitated towards him.

Does Muggsy still coach United Faith? I was happy for them when he got that job. Seems to suit him well.

We used to play them twice a year since they were down the road from Latin. I bet he helps that program tremendously (assuming he is still there).

Yeah I think he is still there. He is getting ready to do a summer camp next week.

Always appreciate the athletes that come to Charlotte and stick around even after the fact.

There aren't many that don't.

I always thought he never got the credit he deserved as a weapon on the fast break...he played really solid defense, elite at jumping the passing lanes and rarely got exposed by bigger point guards posting him up(threw the other teams offense out of rhythm).

With that said I remember an episode of NBA Today with Amhad Rashad where LJ and Mugsey were playing/coaching special needs athletes.

LJ was coaching and Mugsey was defending one of the special needs attendees who proceeds to swish a 12 foot hook shot in Mugsey's face..and typical LJ, he belts out a WHAAAaHaaAa!, leaps five feet off the air, runs into the bleachers, pulling his jersey over his face belly laughing at Mugsey.. .

Love the old Hornets! Tear...

Great pic Zod.

Muggsy was one of the reasons I got into basketball, and looking at that pic just took me back to those days... All I thought was: "I want to be like Muggsy when I grow up." :)

I notice how Zod had to lie on the floor to make him look taller...
