Somehow I missed this. White passed away in January. He was a great player, and emblematic of the 1970s great battles between the Knicks and Celtics.

Clyde Frazier was my favorite Knicks player as a kid, so that made Jo Jo White my least favorite player in the NBA. Loved the rivalry. RIP.

Great matchups tho. Cowens vs. Reed/Lucas, Havlicek/Bradley I guess, White/Frazier, Silas/DeBusschere, Monroe/Charlie Scott.

Mullin's idol was Havlicek, which is why he took 17 in the pros, and discarded #20.

Sub Don Chaney for Charley Scott. As A Clyde Frazier fan the guy I hated most was the Bullets Phil Chenier who was like a clone of Clyde. Remember a game where Chenier clipped Frazier in the face and Walt did not retaliate other than by torching Chenier in the fourth quarter by shooting 7-8.

Charlie Scott was in that era, no? acquired from Suns to re-energize his career? Of course, Cheney was a very good defender.

The Bullets Knicks wars were almost lcones of each other. Unseld-Reed, Debusshere/Gus Johnson, Jack Marin/Bradley, Monroe/Frazier and later Chenier. Mike Riordan as a Bullets star also (Holy Cross grad who didn't make varsity till very late).

I have a very vague memory of White playing at Alumni Hall and tried to come up with an all time opponent team who played against SJU at Alumni/ CA .
Came up with Rick Barry and Darrell Griffith, two fabulous players who played great games here and Marvin Barnes and Ernie DeGregorio to join White. I'm sure I missed many others and maybe some other posters will come up with some names while breaking the monotony of waiting for some big to sign.

Those match-ups were something else, as were the games. Classics.

If memory serves me right , jo Jo White ( Kansas ?) came into Alumni Hall to play SJU . They were a highly ranked team and got blown out by the Redmen . Albie Schwartz put the clamps on Jo Jo .
