Did You Know (Reggie Lewis Version)?

Born and raised in Baltimore, MD (an absolute mecca for talented ballers), former Celtics captain Reggie Lewis (the #22 overall selection in the 1987 Draft averaged 17.6 PPG during his shortened career) was a key member of the Dunbar High School basketball team that went 50-0 during the 1981/1982 season.

An undefeated basketball season is great and all, but an undefeated HIGH SCHOOL squad which featured 4 future NBA players in nothing short of incredible!! The others?
  • Muggsy Bogues (12th overall pick in 1987 Draft by Washington Bullets...out of Wake Forest)
  • Reggie "Silk" Williams (4th overall pick in the 1986 Draft by LA Clippers...out of Georgetown)
  • David Wingate (2nd round pick in 1986 Draft by Philadelphia 76ers...out of Georgetown)

As a side note...when playing with the Spurs, David Wingate was accused of raping first a 17-year-old woman...and a couple days later, a 21-year-old woman. He was eventually cleared of both charges, as both victims refused to testify. Shady!

Yet another local recruit missed by the Terps. What an awful track record.
