Can great ballhandling be taught, or is it innate? The DC area has produced more tha its share of proficient dribblers. Names such as George Leftwich, Larry Watson, Donnel Bullock, Kevin Tatum, Alphonso “The Magician ” Adair, Stacy Robinson, Ric “Purple” Eley, Mike Mundy, and Moocie Norris come to mind. Kevin Tatum, who played on the McKinley Tech teams that went undefeated in the Internigh in both 1968 and 1969, played with five All-Met teammates- Ernest Lewis, Randolph “Apple” Milam, Ronnie Hogue, Tim Bassett, and Michael Bossard. Not many playmakers can say that.
Kevin Tatum once said that he does not believe masterful ballhandling can be taught, he feels it is a gift. What other area ballplayers you recall, possessed this gift?
