Former NBA player Ralph Sampson was recently announced to be a keynote speaker for the Fourth Annual NSU basketball dinner that’s happening next month on October 15, at 7 p.m. in downtown Norfolk at the Murray Center. The deadline to signup and register for the event is October 12th, and tickets to get into the dinner are $75 per person which includes both a meal and participation in a raffle. VIP tickets will be available to a select few, who will also be given an opportunity to meet with the player during an early entry and have a chance to take photos or get autographs.
The Harrisonburg, Virginia native had an opportunity to enter the 1982 NFL Draft, but after a lot of contemplation he decided to stay in college and finish school. In 1983 Sampson was picked up at the draft by the Houston Rockets as the number one overall choice, and there were many very high expectations of him. Throughout his career he also played for the Golden State Warriors and the Sacramento Kings in the NBA. He also was the 1984 NBA Rookie of the Year and the 1985 NBA All-Star MVP. In addition to that, he was a three-time college national player of the year. He tied up his career with a last year playing for the Rockford Lightning.
Sampson is scheduled to be the keynote speaker next month at NSU’s tip-off dinner that is happening in Norfolk at the Murray Center. Be sure to purchase your tickets well in advance as it could very well be a sell-out!
