March Madness

   With the Sweet Sixteen being one day away I was thinking about the 1 player I would've loved to have seen play in college. The answer for me is simple : Pistol Pete Maravich. The guy was so ahead of his time with his And 1 mixtape type moves and he could shoot like Byrd. And, he looked cool doing it with his high top canvas shoes and his infamous socks. 
   One crazy stat that just came to me was that he averaged 44.2 points per game at LSU.       Obviously, averaging that much in college is insane but there wasn't even a 3 point line back then. S0, his coach did some research and went back to every game and noted where he shot it from on each and every shot. With this research, the coach noted that he made roughly 13 3's a game so in today's world, he would have averaged 57 points per game. INSANE!
   So, here are some pics and videos of inspiration of the legend.
