NOTE:  We are still combing through the mountain of MIN-PHI trade stories and will have a special edition of BI with links later today or tomorrow
Today’s BI is dedicated to the memory of former Nets’ great Super John Williamson.  He left us way too early at age 45; yesterday would have been his 67th birthday.  So many great memories, including his 16-point 4th quarter which led the Nets’ amazing comeback to defeat Denver to win the last ABA title.
