Default Wayne Embry: A forgotten pioneer

The same goes for sports. It's Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali and Bill Russell, melding to Tony Dungy hoisting the Lombardi trophy. And so it is that March 6 tends to slide by without much fanfare every year in the NBA, even though that marks the date in 1972 when Wayne Embry became the league's first black general manager.

I have immense respect for the man, but I think of two things when I see him...

He and James Earl Jones were seperated at birth and he traded Kareem for a bunch of nobodies...

He also did the Raps a huge favour by trading Jalen
