I hope you enjoy this particular post. These two were the prime of Brooklyn in their day. Bernard grew up in my neighborhood and yes Fort Greene was that tough and more. Basketball was the neighborhood’s way of expression. Cold and snow didn’t stop us from playing. So I said that to say this Bernie and Ernie is one story I could relate to. Looking at shots of my old neighborhood brought back a lot of memories right to the project buildings. So what I am saying is this Old School Tuesday is personal. I knew of Bernard and his brother Albert. His father worked in Housing and would see him alot. When Bernard made the pros Mr.King spoke of how proud he was of Bernard. It’s a shame Bernard didn’t know that.
Enjoy the story this goes beyond the stats.
