Before Michael Jordan there was …David Thompson aka skywalker

Sometime ago I had an converation with friends of mine about the players of today and those who I saw back in the day. Juluis Erving was is still is my all time favorite player, but a close second? David Thompson. He could leak and yes measuring leasping ability started with him. Only 6’3 (short by NBA standards) he jumped and dunked on the big boys and if you watch the following you will see that he didn’t care who was in front of him they got posterized. Blake Griffin of today maybe a beast but there was only one David Thompson.
