Sometimes you know something yet you really don’t know something.
In the NBA the Championship Trophy is called the Larry O’Brien. Right? Common knowledge.
It’s named after commissioner Larry O’Brien who expanded and fortified the NBA from 1975 to 1984: just as Jordan was coming in and David Stern was taking over.
I believe most people know that.
What I just clued in was that’s the same Larry O’Brien who had an office in the Watergate complex: it was broken into on June 17, 1972 which ultimately led to the resignation of President Nixon. Yeah!
The penny finally dropped reading Pete Croatto’s fascinating NBA book: From Hang Time to Prime Time: Business, Entertainment, and the Birth of the Modern-Day NBA.
I dunno why I’ve been pantslessly wandering this earth thinking those were 2 different Larry O’Briens.
Sometimes you know something yet you really don’t know something. And knowing is half the battle.
