      No, no.  I just read the book "Pistol" and wanted to hear your take on it after you have read it.  Pete Maravich is a really interesting "character" and I wonder if he had aspergers?  His "wierdness" is never quite explained.  You take would be most interesting, if you are interested, that is.

        I'm not really a sports fan.... I do remember that Maravidh played basketball, which I used to watch a little.  Why do you think he has Aspergers?

          I am not a sports fan either but love to read about sports figures.  What makes them so talented in comparison to other athletes.  Mostly it is practice, practice, practice with a lot of natural talent thrown into the mix.  And they are actually like great mathematicians.   The games are all angles, angles, angles.

          Maravich=aspergers?  He had many "isms" readily attained and easily dropped for another "ism."  Maybe because his entire life from an early age was consumed w/basketball was what made his seem so other worldly.  I was just curious how you would see him?
