I did not realize that roughly one-third of Manhattan citizens played basketball, that is, until I read a comment from commissioner Butler on another thread where he posited that 14,000 people played basketball in the old auditorium last year. Good grief, that would put us on a par with Washington, D.C., Newark, New Jersey and the south side of Chicago. If that is true, there must be non-stop basketball going on there 24 hrs a day. It is clear that Mr. Butler is a huge basketball fan. I wonder if Bruce Weber knows about these 14,000 basketball players? Surely he could find five good ones out of that number and save all this expensive recruiting.
