Hi Rob, I just quoted George from an interview we did in the 1990s. I enjoyed talking to George and his quotes included how the owners were the dumbest people because we would have played for nothing and did. george told me he only played home games and he was under the impression that Sharman did get paid. Sherman replaced John McClendon who after the Goerge experience went as far away as he could go to coach basketball - Malyasia - I knew John as well. The ABL apparently was Saperstein's payback to the NBA for not giving him the LA franchise even though his Globetrotters franchise was extremely important in the NBA development.
