Description

While several legends emerged from the short-lived circuit, the American Basketball Association was rife with problems (financial and otherwise). Among its doomed franchises, the Miami Floridians featured a multitude of “home” courts, including a former aircraft hangar with no air conditioning. But as we recall the red-white-and-blue basketballs, 3-point shooting and skyrocketing scores, we fondly remember Al Tucker and these game worn shooting pants! Worn by the 6-foot-8 forward and Oklahoma Baptist University product during the 1970-1972 seasons (during which the team was simply known as “The Floridians”), this black knit leg wear features a magenta-and-orange stripe pattern lining the length of the left front and back. A drawstring resides within the elasticized waistband, whose rear interior is home to a “Wilson” size “L” label and an adhesive strip with “#12 Tucker” inscribed in black ink. All-original and unaltered, this vintage ABA relic shows moderate wear and belonged to the man widely credited with inventing the “alley-oop!” Accompanying is a COA from Heritage Auctions.
