Pistol pete is the best passer of all time dont play
Simply a legend
0:33 he put that boy on skates
Many of these players are not alive.
He just carelessly chucks it without looking and it always goes right to his teammates hands this dude had insane peripheral vision and hand eye coordination
Still entertaining to this day… who the hell cares about athleticism?
Basketball is a game, not the fucking olympic athletics
im better tbh
He was so much better than the guards he played against. Like 20 yrs better. Amazing.
My question is: Did his teammates know any of them could suddenly have a ball in his hands? That's some together team ..
As you see give and go and pick and roll existed back then.
Lakers were doing that even before Bob Cousy.
0:32 the white crossover
Did Bob dribble with his left hand more than twice in his whole career?
Congratulations for receiving Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Trump. Such a great basketball player. I watched Bill and you play when I was just a kid.
Maravich Cousy and Stockton are the greatest 3 white guards
BefOre steve nash
People are laughing at the guy who falls over at 0:33, but it wasn't that bad of a play on his part. Obviously he got crossed and fell over, which is embarrassing, but he was playing Cousy to go back, which he faked like he was going to, and was going to where he thought the ball would be to make a steal and couldn't recover and get back. He was also playing in Converse All-Stars, which aren't the best shoes for quick movement and were probably part of the reason.
Cousy was a breakthrough player. Comparing him to today's players misses the point. It's a bit like saying some company rep who rents an hour from the Hubble telescope is a greater astronomer than Galileo. The rep knows things Galileo never knew. But that's because he's accessing a base of knowledge in which Galileo plays a huge role. The rep contributes nothing in comparison to the advances Galileo introduced.
Cousy is Galileo.
Wow. His passing and ball handling skills were off the charts. Way ahead of his time, reminds me of a mix between Steve Nash and Steph Curry in terms of how he handles the ball
Cousy played against Chamberlain. Chamberlain played against Jabbar. Jabbar played against Jordan. Jordan played against Kobe. Kobe played against Lebron. My point is, Cousy would've been great in the modern era.
It just shows how much basketball has evolved in the past 60 years
This is where magic gets it from. Bob cousy just moved up to my top 10. Hes nice. Bob "pretty boy" cousy
And he had to keep his hand on top of the basketball or he got called for a turnover! Imagine what kind of crossovers he could do with the modern rules.
One of the most disrespected players aka stupid ass jr smith
