1958 – Happy 56th birthday to Milwaukee Bucks coach Larry Drew who also played 10 seasons in the league. During Drew’s playing career, he had one of the NBA’s better assist percentages all-time. In each of his three years as the head coach in Atlanta, the team finished above .500. If Drew survives this ugly season in Milwaukee, then he will be in line to coach a very high draft pick.
