Dave Twardzik spent his life in professional basketball, an eight-year career in the ABA and NBA highlighted as the point guard on the 1977 world champion Portland Trail Blazers.
But before he teamed up with Hall of Famer Bill Walton, he wore the blue and gold of the Middletown Blue Raiders from Middletown, Pennsylvania, which also happens to be the hometown of our very own Sweeny Murti.
In this edition of "30 With Murti," Sweeny takes a stroll down memory lane with Twardzik about Middletown’s run to the 1968 Pennsylvania state basketball championship, a small-town run to the title straight out of the movie “Hoosiers.”
Listen here as Twardzik recounts his high school glory days as well as his days in the ABA playing alongside none other than Dr. J, Julius Erving himself. A must-listen for basketball fans in this episode of "30 With Murti."
