Great Collection Monte--you must have had a mom who didn't throw out your stuff.

Monte, thanks so much for posting these. Johnny Warren played for SJU during the 6 or 7 year period my Dad had season tickets. While he was certainly not one of the 5 greatest Johnnies I've seen during my years, he was one of my favorites. Just a very solid college player in every respect, who made very few mistakes and could be counted on to hit the big shot whether from the field or the foul line, while often defending the opponents best scorer.

Thanks Red. Unfortunately she did throw some stuff out, but fortunately I kept a lot of it. Man imagine the number of baseball cards of significant value that have been tossed over the years by parents? From the time I was a kid, I was a collector of sorts. Cards, significant newspapers, magazines, etc. I still have most of them thankfully.

Agree NC, a solid ballplayer. I was really happy when the Knicks drafted him, unfortunately he didn't turn out to be much of a pro. I was likewise thrilled when the Knicks drafted Dean the dream, who also didn't have much of a pro career. But he did help the Knicks win a championship. Had an opportunity about a year ago while working on a movie alongside Dean's son, to have a nice chat with him about my memories of his Dad at Rice, Marquette and with the Knicks. It was a special moment for me, and it also seemed to be one for him too.

I have great memories of Dean the Dream especially during Knicks second championship year. He and Dave the Rave Stallworth were two of my favorite Knicks of that era. Neither was a star or even a starter in the NBA after great college careers but each provided some huge lifts to the team during their two championship runs.
