    Hey Beast....didn't Big Mac turn out to have some vision problems at the end of his career that affected his shooting? Tried glasses and maybe contacts but couldnt get used to playing with them.....or am I thinking of another guy that was here, left, and we got back??

    As for the McGinnis/Lebron comparison....NOT IMPO. George was much more of a team player.
    I agree about Lebron, George was a pretty good teammate on the floor. Since he actually had very good quickness for a player his size, he adopted a variation of Roger's pivot move when he was outside the "mid-post" area. With the move he would quickly move across the lane and almost always draw the double-team. As he went up with his one-handed shot, he would often pass off to a wide-open teammate on the weak side for the assist.

    I'm not certain about his eyesight during his playing career. As I recall, George did sometimes wear glasses in high school games. I do know that George had some sort of eye surgery (Lasik?) in the mid to late 90s to improve his vision. He still had glasses but I'm pretty sure I only saw him using them to read game guides, menus and so forth.

    I wish ABAdays was around to answer this.
    He always was the go-to guy when ever I had any questions about the ABA.

    I had a thread about the ABA Pacers a couple years ago where he gave me answers I was looking for. I might be able to dig it up.

    edit - I must of brought it up in someone else's thread because I'm not finding it under my created threads, sorry.
