The only man who could hold Jordan under 20 points a game.
When I worked at Norfolk Scope the Tar heels.came in to play the ODU Monarchs. Usually the crowd was about 1500 for an ODU game, but this one was a sell out, 10,000+. Studens were scalping their student section tickets for close to $400. And this was a Vince Carter UNC team.
I had the assignment of working the floor near the UNC bench. Heard a calm, effective and obviously genius coach talk to his players.
I dint think today's youngest fans will understand the crushing disappointment of their team being down five or ten point and seeing Smith stand tall, holding four fingers in the air.
Jordan, despite a "sinus infection", cranks off 29 points against his old team and reaches a new scoring plateau - who doesn't think that he enjoyed every minute of it? Steph I'm going twenty-four hours a day...
