Who is missing from this picture?

Guess ONE name at a time, please.

  • Elgin Baylor? No.
  • Jerry West? No.
  • "Hot Rod" Hundley? Nope
  • Harold "Happy" Hairston? Nope.
  • Gail Goodrich? A good guess. (But no).
  • LeRoy Ellis? An excellent guess from Nathan Marsak–I would have never imagined my crime buddy is a Laker’s fan. (But no). Happy Foot!
  • Ray Felix? Nope.
  • Dick Barnett? Good guess. (But no).
  • Darrall Imhoff? (My longtime colleague Keith Thursby, who explains: "You have to be of a certain vintage and a certain sports geekiness to immediately recognize Rudy LaRusso at the Sports Arena.") Absolutely. I’ll post the complete photo tomorrow.
