Episode Info:

You could say this man is a lifer. He has been both a player and (for the last 38+ years) the head coach at Queens powerhouse Cardozo H.S. His storied program has helped develop a large crop of talented men all across the basketball landscape.  Players like streetball icon Rafer "Skip to my Lou" Alston, retired NBA vet Duane Causwell and current New York Knicks assistant coach Royal Ivey all credit this man with helping them grow as men and athletes.

He attended St. John's where he excelled as a baseball player. So much so that he was drafted by the White Sox, but never gave up coaching under his mentor Al Matican. He's the winningest public school coach in New York city and state history with over 800 W's as of this recording.

If it wasn't for his late father, the civil rights movement would have lost one of its major figures, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On this episode of Dribble N' Dimes we have the privilege of learning hoops history from "The Teacher" Coach Ron Naclerio.
