Lunch with Basketball Reporter Peter Vecsey in NYC

View original image


Enjoy lunch for 2 in New York City with sports columnist and former basketball reporter Peter Vecsey in New York City.

Vecsey's writing/reporting career began in ernest covering the ABA (Nets) almost from its 1967 inception. He became the Knicks' beat writer a month into the '73-74 season. Prior to the '71 season, Vecsey organized a summer team to play in Harlem's famed Rucker Tournament. He coached and played. His teams—Julius Erving, Charlie Scott, Billy Paultz, Bob McIntyre, Dave Brownbill, Ollie Taylor, Joe DePre, Bob Love, Larry Kenon, Manny Leaks, Mike Riordan, Kenny Charles, Earl Foreman, Walt Szczerbiak, Tom Chapin, Bob Leckie, Clyde Bradshaw, Louis Orr, Sam Worthen, Bobby Willis, Pat Cummings—captured four titles in six summers.

Vecsey is most proud of branding Bird 'Larry Legend' and Michael 'Air Jordan'...and gets little credit for either....just as Hubie Brown gets no credit for stamping him 'The Viper.
