Baby Jordan: Harold Miner had a short, unremarkable, but memorable NBA career. After retiring because of a bad knee, Miner became sort of a recluse and hid from the game that made him famous. “Basketball was my life, and for it to be taken away so abruptly was tough. Every time March Madness would come around, or the NBA playoffs or All-Star weekend, it was kind of an emotional time for me. It was tough to watch, you know?” Miner will have his jersey retired by USC next season. [LA Times]
