Jerry Lucas Biography
Jerry Lucas was born March 30, 1940 and is a former basketball player, who is now a memory education expert. In 1996, the NBA's 50th anniversary, he was named one of the 50 greatest players in National Basketball Association history. He was named to Sports Illustrated's five-man College All-Century Team in 1999.
Lucas was born in Middletown, Ohio, then a community of 30,000+ halfway between Dayton and Cincinnati, that in the 1940s and 1950s boasted one of the most respected high school basketball programs in the United States. Greatly encouraged, Lucas began pouring hours each day into the game during his early teens.
Lucas had become a local playground legend by age 15, in Sunset Park. Sunset Park was then a regional summer hotbed for high school, college and even some pro players. Future Cincinnati Royals teammates Wayne Embry and Oscar Robertson were visitors there. Lucas was already at almost his adult height of 6 ft 8 in (2.06 m) by age 15, outplaying college players.
Lucas trained his shooting and rebounding to remarkable degrees. He was gifted with 20-10 eyesight, and saw shots very well. Lucas created his own drills, showing a gift for inventing games he would utilize later as well.
