Pete Maravich . . . legendary LSU basketball player - nick-named "The Pistol" for his gun-slinger style of play and passion for the game.When inducted into the basketball hall of fame as one of its youngest members, he was sited as "perhaps the greatest creative offensive talent in history".
Pistol Pete Maravich. When Press Maravich moved his family to Raleigh to coach at NCSU, Pete attended Needham-Broughton HS...with my mom. I remember as a kid, looking through her yearbook at his photos, when he scored his 2000th point. He is my all-time favorite player...to this day, I strive to play his game.
