Shallow Thought Of The Day, Vol I

Is it just me, or does former ABA center/power forward Red Robbins look a lot like actor Neil Patrick Harris? Robbins, who passed away this year, was one of the ABA's better centers in the league's early years despite being only 6'8. He was a good rebounder, never turned the ball over, and developed a good outside shot, leading the ABA in 3 point percentage in 1972. His best year came in 1970, when he averaged over 16 and 16, and he won a championship as a role player with the 1971 Utah Stars, who were led by Zelmo Beaty and Willie Wise.
