This is a special one because this is my birthday edition! hahah yes, had to shine some light on my special day, but I delay no more. Here are some notable NBA events that went down on this day.
March 15th, 1991
The late great Moses Malone of Atlanta picked up his 15,000th career rebound in the NBA during the Hawks’ 127-117 win over Dallas at Reunion Arena. As he would say that’s a lot of “ball boards”
March 15th, 1992
Cleveland coach Lenny Wilkens became only the fifth coach in NBA history (alongside Red Auerbach, Jack Ramsay, Dick Motta and Bill Fitch) to record 800 career victories when the Cavs defeated the Denver Nuggets 100-91 at Richfield Coliseum.
March 15th, 2002
longtime (and current) Miami Heat broadcaster Eric Reid reaches a career milestone as he broadcasted his 1,000th regular season game as Miami faced the New Jersey Nets in New Jersey. Unfortunately the Nets prevailed 97-78.
Thanks y’all, until next time.
