Daily (or when I remember) NBA fact/trivia/useless info

Let's start with a fact from way back...

Back in 1953, Don Meineke won the Eddie Gottlieb Trophy for Rookie of the Year. Don played for Fort Wayne and surprising lead the league that year in personal fouls and disqualifications. Don, or the Monk as he was known, averaged 10.7 points per game that year and 6.9 rebounds per game.

(more history - Eddie Gottlieb helped establish the forerunner to the NBA, the BAA, played in the 1920s, coached, bought and then shipped the Philadelphia Warriors to San Francisco - plus way too much more to list....)
