George Gervin - September 22, 2011


George Gervin is a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and was in Long Island earlier this week for the Mentor’s Champions Golf Challenge. He is known as the Ice Man from his NBA days for his demeanor, but he is not quite that way after three-putting on the golf course. While the finger roll was his signature NBA move, he also has a finger roll move on the golf course. One thing he loves about golf is how it reveals character. Bill Russell is like a mentor to him and he feels that this program is incredibly special. Mentoring is so important and he is very proud to be involved with this program and to be involved with helping young people.
