And yet, Chicago never really knew their star forward, as stuttering precluded his media exposure. As a matter of fact, it isolated him, diminished his earning power, and doomed many of his relationships.
Yet Mr. Love, without bitterness, tells a harrowing story, found all too common among former pro athletes, of ending up broke, bottoming out, and starting all over again. Yet Mr. Love does not have drugs and alcohol to blame. He did not succumb to these demons.
He was held back by his speech impediment, and in some cases by poor judgement, but remarkably, never stopped believing in himself.
Bob Love was a fourth round pick in the NBA, but persevered, to become a four time all-star. The story he tells is often harrowing. And perhaps cathartic for him to relay. Yet, he tells it well, and with pride in his new found ability to communicate. Bob Love is one of the truly good guys sports has produced. Hats off to him for coming out on top.
