Hoops Links: Mavs, Spurs, Vesely, Rockets

On this date in 1928, Dolph Schayes was born in New York City.  Twenty years later, Schayes would be tabbed by the Syracuse Nationals of the NBL where he used his height (6'8") to tower over most of his opposition.  The forward captured the Rookie of the Year award in 1949 and in 1955 he led his team to an NBA championship.  Schayes made the All-NBA First-Team six times, the All-NBA Second-Team six times, and amassed 19,249 points over the course of his career.  The New York native was shoe-in for the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1972 and also earned the unofficial title of the best Jewish basketball player ever.
