 Roger Brown Story Trailer Video (Link courtesy of Tman) It may not seem like it, based on our recent emotionally driven, factually deficient fetish for J.R. Smith, but Knicks Fanatics are smart and passionate historians especially when it comes to remembering great home grown ballers.  In a previous Thread, our coach and conscience, Tman of Bball, reminded us of Brooklyn legend Roger "Rajah" Brown.  A Brooklyn High School phenom before his career was derailed by false accusations of criminal activity, he re-emerged as a ABA star which is where is legend grew but stayed shrouded by the lack of exposure.  Now there is a documentary on Roger Brown.  Tman graciously provided us the link which we now offer to you as Penthouse room service.  Enjoy.  Be educated, and we'll stop sucking on J.R.s potential instead of feasting on the realization of real New York talent.  Peace and Blessings.
