“…Taylor credits much of his proficiency in football to basketball. “It helped the quickness, the agility,” he says. “I tried to do the things Elgin Baylor did. I saw this man while I was in high school, and I just fell in love with him. I wasn’t a great shooter. I played forward and center. You might not believe this, but Willis Reed and I played to a 13-13 point standoff in college. He bloodied my nose, but I never did quit.”…

Told you we are all linked. And Washington basketball has changed the world.
