Iconic Value Add Player Card for the Late, Great Bob Lanier (passed away Wednesday)

Kareem's quote in Airplane regarding the late, great Bob Lanier (the movie) - "The hell I don't. LISTEN KID. I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes."

Bob Lanier passed away today at 73. He has one of the best player cards on any of our 136 great teams in the Value Add Basketball Game. Here is one of many stories on his passing - this one from the New York Post. His St. Bonnie's team is at the bottom of the blog.

I also included the scoresheet from when I pitted them against a great Maryland squad. As this blog details, Lanier scored 25 and grabbed 11 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as they fell ti Maryland 74-64.
