Re(1): Remember Linardos?

I remember the name. If he played at Hartford then he is the one who tried out for the one final roster spot for one of the last seasons, maybe 1993-1995 He tried out against Bryan Katon, who was the Dania ballboy at the time.

The story goes that Buddy Berenson could not decide who to hire between the two so he had them compete in a length of the court foot race and both of them tied. He then had them both race backwards and they tied again. He then had them try to climb up the side wall to see who could get up the highest and Linardos was able to get up just a little higher than Bryan and got the contract.

Crazy way to give out a contract but Buddy was the boss.
