NBA Notes Include John Tresvant

April 24, 2021

Fifty years ago, the Milwaukee Bucks were on their way to their lone title, up (1-0) in the final, in which they would sweep the Baltimore Bullets.

Both of the Phoenix Suns’ NBA final appearances came in years with this calendar (1976 and 1993). Phoenix still leads, but barely in the race for the “figurehead” division title.

I note John Tresvant, a fine player, who is one of only 5 players to snare 40 or more rebounds in an NCAA game, when he played at Seattle University (Elgin’s school), played in consecutive losing final rounds with Elgin and the Lakers vs the Knicks (’70) and for the Bullets, as stated, vs the Bucks in 1971.

“Tres” developed a kit to help young rebounders. He is 80 plus and living in the state of Washington.

 

Of course “TRES”-this from Wikipedia

 “In 2006, he invented the Total Rebounder Exercise System (TRES), a basket designed for use in training young players in rebounding techniques.”
