At 60-years-old, Dave Corzine is not a dinosaur. But, by basketball standards, it may as well be. Furthermore, old school big men like him seem to be going extinct in the modern, position-less game of basketball. In his 13 season, Corzine averaged nine points and six rebounds per game. He defines himself as a role player and told me how there may not have been a place for a back-to-the basket center like him in today’s game.
Corzine and I talked about the land before the 3-point line, old school big men, revolutionary players, the 3-point revolution, and what it was like to play with Michael Jordan in this first ever edition of the Fouxdini of the Hardwood YouTube series.
