A memoir of hard lessons learned in the racially segregated and sometimes outright racist NBA of the early '60s by celebrated NBA player and first Black Coach of the Year, Ray Scott. Ray Scott was part of the early wave of Black NBA players like Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain who literally changed how the game of professional basketball is played, leading to the tremendously popular financial blockbuster the NBA is today. Scott was a successful 6'9" forward/center after being chosen by the Detroit Pistons as the #4 pick of the 1961 NBA draft, and then again after he was named head coach of the Pistons in 1972, winning Coach of the Year in the spring of 1974-the first Black man ever to capture that honor.

David Maraniss - Jim Thorpe Story: A Path Lit By Lightning Smithsonian Associates Not Old Better Show Interview Series Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates interview series on radio and podcast.  I'm Paul Vogelzang, and for all of us in The Not Old Better Show audience, we will remember ‘the greatest athlete of all time.”  Not Babe Ruth, not Wilt Chamberlain, and not Jim Brown, but Jim Thorpe.   Thank you so much for listening.  We've got a great guest today, whom I'll introduce in just a moment…But, quickly, if you missed any episodes, last week was our 662nd episode, and we spoke to historian and genealogist Jenny Ashcraft about new headlines and what they teach us about ancestry from Newspapers.com.  Two weeks ago, I spoke with  Smithsonian Associate Dr. Marc Seifer about his new book, TESLA: Wizard at War, about Nikola Tesla's war efforts and technology…  Wonderful stuff…If you missed those shows, you can go back and check them out along with my entire back-catalog of shows, all free for you there on our website, NotOldBetter.com…and if you leave a review, we will read it at the end of each show…leave reviews on Apple Podcasts for us. Our guest today is Smithsonian Associate Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss.  David Maraniss will be appearing at Smithsonian Associates coming up, and you can check our website in the show notes today for more details.  The title of David Maraniss's presentation is Jim Thorpe: Outracing the Odds. We will be talking with David Maraniss today about his new book, ‘Path Lit By Lightning: The Life of Jim Thorpe.' That, of course, is our guest today, Smithsonian Associate David Maraniss, reading from his new book, Path Lit By Lightning: The Life of Jim Thorpe.'' Jim Thorpe rose to world fame as a mythic talent who excelled at every sport. He won gold medals in the decathlon and pentathlon at the 1912 Stockholm Olympics, was an All-American football player at the Carlisle Indian School, the star of the first class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and played major-league baseball for John McGraw's New York Giants. Even in the golden age of sports celebrities, he was one of a kind. But despite his colossal skills, Thorpe's life was a struggle against the odds. As a member of the Sac and Fox Nation, he encountered duplicitous authorities who turned away from him when their reputations were at risk.  His gold medals were unfairly rescinded because he had played Minor-League baseball. His later life was troubled by alcohol, broken marriages, and financial distress.  We'll discuss all this and America's greatest all-around athlete who, for all his travails, did not succumb. The man survived, complications and all, and so did the myth. Please join me in welcoming to the Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss. Our review today is from Joseph G. Mejorado Sept 13, 2022,  Joseph Mejorado says Good works! Through this show, I find something that improves my daily life. Really good job. Thank you, Joseph, and My thanks to David Maraniss for his generous time today and for generously reading from his new book, Path Lit By Lightning: The Life of Jim Thorpe.'Path Lit By Lightning: The Life of Jim Thorpe.'Path Lit By Lightning: The Life of Jim Thorpe.' My thanks to the Smithsonian team for all they do to support the show. My thanks to you, my wonderful Not Old Better Show audience on radio and podcast.  Please be well, and be safe, which I'm telling you each show, followed by my message to eliminate assault rifles. Only members of the military use these weapons.  Assault rifles are killing our children and grandchildren in the very places they learn: school.  Let's do better.  Let's talk about better.  The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast.  Thanks, everybody, and we'll see you next week.  Today's music, Ho Way Hey Yo is from Smithsonian Folkways is particularly relevant, Heartbeat: Voices of First Nations Women, from the Ceremonial and social songs traditionally sung by women of Seneca, Cherokee, Creek, Dine (Di Nay) tribes.

The Far Middle episode 69 celebrates the 69-win NBA season by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers, a record for victories in a season that would stand until the 72 wins by Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen’s 1995-96 Chicago Bulls team. The Lakers' star-studded lineup (including Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor, Pat Riley, and Jerry West) not only won the NBA championship that year but also 33 straight games—a record that stands today. Staying in the late 60s and early 70s era, Nick discusses the final years of Pablo Picasso’s life, a colorful and expressive point in the artist’s perpetual changing career when he was massively prolific. Also at that time, in 1969, French writer Henri Charrière published Papillon, which Nick highly recommends. The book would be made into a movie starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman the year after the Lakers' 69-win championship season. And just as critics panned Picasso’s works at the end of his career, they similarly panned Papillon’s screen adaptation. Nick says to be your own expert when it comes to film and literature. Nick then transitions into an overview of the CNX Foundation Mentorship Academy, which is nearing the start of its second year. Nick describes the Academy’s mission, its first year, and an exciting summer that most recently included a cookout with prospective second-year students. Follow Academy updates at nickdeiuliis.com and at cnx.com. Staying on education, Nick next discusses students, parents, and taxpayers finally starting to hold colleges accountable for the quality of education delivered during the pandemic. Nick closes with a one-of-a-kind, multi-part Far Middle connection going back to the early 1970s and linking Papillon, Pablo Picasso, and “winging-it.”

Imagine being a teenager in high school and sharing a house with the biggest basketball star on the planet. This was the life Dave Richman lived for a few months in 1965. That winter, Dave's father, 76ers founder and owner Ike Richman, pulled off a stunning trade to bring Wilt Chamberlain back to Philadelphia to play for the recently-formed Sixers. A lot of people know the story of Chamberlain's impact on the then-fledgling team, but some of the stories that happened behind the scenes are just as fascinating. Hear Dave Richman, former 76er and Chamberlain teammate Wali Jones, and 94.1 WIP's Howard Eskin share memories of the Big Dipper with The Jawncast's Brian Seltzer and KYW Newsradio's Dave Uram a few days before what would have been Chamberlain's 86th birthday.

If that is indeed the case, savvy bettors could make some serious money on Cleveland Browns AFC North and Super Bowl futures. Sticking in the NFL, this whole Watson saga has underscored one painfully obvious fact: there is a dearth of legitimate starting quarterbacks in the NFL. Why else would Cleveland trade for Watson - and give him richest guaranteed deal in NFL history - knowing that a suspension was coming?

In celebration of the 100th episode of BBH.101, we wanted to share the story of Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game. While this game is certainly not forgotten from the annals of basketball history, it seemed appropriate for the episode. But Wilt hardly set his single-game scoring record alone. It took the rest of the Philadelphia Warriors team to give him assists and set screens for him to get open. Despite the New York Knicks doing everything in their power to prevent him scoring 100, the Warriors banded together to help Chamberlain reach this incredible milestone.

ABOUT RAY SCOTT AND THE NBA IN BLACK AND WHITEA memoir of hard lessons learned in the racially segregated and sometimes outright racist NBA of the early '60s by celebrated NBA player and first Black Coach of the Year, Ray Scott.Ray Scott was part of the early wave of Black NBA players like Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain who literally changed how the game of professional basketball is played, leading to the tremendously popular financial blockbuster the NBA is today. Scott was a successful 6'9" forward/center after being chosen by the Detroit Pistons as the #4 pick of the 1961 NBA draft, and then again after he was named head coach of the Pistons in 1972, winning Coach of the Year in the spring of 1974-the first Black man ever to capture that honor.Scott's is a story of quiet persistence, hard work, and, most of all, respect. He credits the mentorship of NBA player and coach Earl Lloyd and talks about fellow Philly native Wilt Chamberlain and friends Muhammad Ali and Aretha Franklin, among many others. Scott has lived through one of the most turbulent times in our nation's history, especially the time of assassinations of so many Black leaders at the end of the 1960s. Through it all, his voice has remained quiet and measured, transcending all the sorrows with steadiness. This is his story, told in collaboration with well-known basketball writer, former college player, and CBA coach Charley Rosen. Racism in the world of sports is still all over the news-from Brian Flores's racial discrimination lawsuit against the NFL, to Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva being allowed to compete in the Olympics while African-American runner Sha'Carri Richardson was banned, to the prolonged detainment of Black WNBA star Brittney Griner in Russia. And while we still have much work to do to make equality a reality, The NBA in Black and White answers the question "How did we go from there being only white players in the NBA to the highest paid athletes in the NBA being Black?" and reminds us of the progress we've made toward equal opportunity and fair compensation for people of color.Philly native John Raymond "Ray" Scott's college career began at the University of Portland. After three seasons in the professional Eastern Basketball League, he was chosen as the 4th pick in the 1961 NBA draft by the Detroit Pistons. He spent six years with the Pistons as a stand-out rebounder and deadly shooter from the perimeter, and another five years playing for the Baltimore Bullets and the Virginia Squires. Then, in October 1972, Scott was promoted from Assistant to Head Coach of the Detroit Pistons, thanks in part to strong support from former coach Earl Lloyd who, a decade earlier, had scouted Scott and recommended that he be the Pistons top pick. Two years later he was named NBA Coach of the Year, the first African-American to win the coveted award. From 1976 to 1979, Scott was Men's Basketball Head Coach at Eastern Michigan University. Today, he lives with his family in Eastern Michigan, not far from Detroit. This is his first book. ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THE NBA IN BLACK AND WHITE"Scott, who became the first Black coach to be named NBA Coach of the Year in 1974, delivers a moving reflection on his influential career.Fans of the sport will relish Scott's insights, including how the game's been changed by the emphasis on three-point shooting.A valuable addition to hoops history." - Publishers Weekly"This is a truly wonderful book that reveals the difficulties of the quota system and all the other obstacles that African American NBA players had to face when the league began to integrate in the mid-1950s and beyond. It also tells how Ray and many other great Black players managed to achieve the fulfillment of their respective talents. Indeed, Ray was the rare successful NBA player who became a successful NBA coach. Along the way, the plight of 'ordinary' Black citizens who succeeded and/or tragically failed in facing their own racial barriers is addressed. Above all, Ray's honesty, intelligence, and deep understanding of how social injustice influences every aspect of all our collective and individual lives, makes this narrative totally relevant today. There's enough wisdom in here to enlighten and inspire even people who have little or no interest in basketball. Incredibly powerful-a must read." - Hubie Brown, NBA Coach of the Year (1978, 2004), member of the Basketball Hall of Fame"Ray Scott has chronicled his four-decades-long basketball odyssey beautifully. It is a thoughtful and well-written book about the transforming landscape of the NBA. He shares his firsthand knowledge and experiences and adds value to an era not so often discussed. I have been blessed to have known Ray, and blessed even more to have someone who trudged through the early days of the NBA take me along with him for the journey."- Marques Johnson, twelve-year NBA player, five-time All Star"I first met Ray Scott in 1965 when I was a rookie player for the Detroit Pistons. I was scared to death of the challenges I faced trying to make it in the NBA, but Ray welcomed me to the team. As one of the veterans, he organized all the players to work out and prepare for camp together. It meant the world to me, and I have never forgotten how he treated me. Ray's book brought back so many good memories from my NBA days. He was and is a leader and a wonderful example of how we should all respect, get along, and love each other. Ray is a good man."- Tom Van Arsdale, 12-year NBA player, three-time All StarGet the book here:https://www.amazon.com/NBA-Black-White-Memoir-Trailblazing/dp/164421198X

Nick reflects on the career of Chamberlain who maintains the NBA’s record of 23,924 rebounds, and notes Bill Russell is number two at just over 21,000 boards, followed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 17,440. Serendipitously, Bill Russell played against Chamberlain in that 1960 rebound record-breaking game.Following his comments on the career of Chamberlain, which came about due to his massive potential, Nick addresses the massive potential of Appalachian energy. He juxtaposes his “sadness” mentioned in episode 54 regarding energy policy with excitement if America gets energy policy right and Appalachia energy is allowed to be unleashed. He further explains the key differentiator of free market versus government control when it comes to energy.“When government gets involved in complicated matters best left to the competitive free market of entrepreneurs and innovators to figure out, I can assure you bad things are always going to happen,” says Nick as he transitions to analyzing the government creating a monopoly for baby formula producers and government’s role in producing the recent formula shortage.While on the topic of government ineptitude, he looks at the over and undercounting in the latest Census. He also examines recent real estate purchases by the elites within the server class and closes by honoring the raw talent of the late Ray Liotta.
