Yes, this is shameless self-promotion, but if you are curious at all about what happened to Jack after his near-fatal fall from his son´s bicycle in 1979, and how that accident, which occurred when he was coach of the Los Angeles Lakers (who went on to be 1980 NBA champions), you can read my memoir, Fast Break South, available to Kindle readers through this site.

I went to grade school and high school with your dad. I knew your mother Clair and Jack's parents. After the accident I lost track of him and his career (in the papers). I did hear several years ago that he had a sporting goods store somewhere near Chester. I guess i"ll have to read the book to see what happened to "bones".
