    One of my favorite Wolfpackers. Used to see him walking from Western Boulevard down toward the old student center to class a lot. He would wave and say hi if you said hello to him.

    I met Chucky one time. I was talking to him (circa 1993) and asked him if he was going to be picked up by another team. He said he hoped so but if he didn't he had already made enough to retire. Remember he was a journeyman so he was not making absurd amounts. But he was driving an old car and apparently was smart with his money.

    My guess is this is something to do with his time. He is an impressive guy.

    He was great on the radio when he filled in and did color when Gary was out for several games.

    He will be forever a legend in Houston for his shutdown of sir Charles Barkley during the Rockets '95 championship run

    One of my all time favorites. As a matter of fact, I would say it’s between him and Rodney Monroe.

    He is one of my all time favorites as well.  I put him up there with not only Rodney Monroe, but also with Hawkeye Whitney and Kenny Carr.  He is at least in the top ten since I started seriously watching NC State basketball in the mid 1970s.

    I will also give my thumbs up for him as a good color man on the radio.  Think he should consider that in the future whenever the opportunity arises on Wolfpack Radio.

    Is this why Sir Charles used to trash him at every opportunity?

    Probably. That Rockets team was Akeem, Clyde, and the CBA All-Stars. Chucky’s job was to get In Barkley’s head and he did. Game five in particular he held him scoreless in the second half.

    Pardon my lack of BB acumen....but what is CBA?  College Basketball Allstars?  Columbia Broadcasting Assholes?  Thanks
