Basketball, New York basketball has fallen from the pinnacle it enjoyed 10 years ago. New York is no longer the first place colleges recruit for top players as reported several years ago by leading sports mags and wags. 10 years ago, every major college had a New York point guard, shooting guard or “franchise” player. In those days, Dave Nelson and Artie Green were part of the basketball landscape. Dave Nelson had founded and successfully campaigned the Parkchester Cavaliers before becoming the Basketball Director at the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx. Artie Green was the man behind the New York Ravens AAU program, St. Raymond’s High School’s recruitment success and eventually won Big Time Las Vegas, the most prestigious AAU tournament in the country, with Andre Barrett, Kenny Satterfield and Francisco Garcia, all who went on to great college careers and play in the NBA.
