Wes Unseld's former Bullets teammates say his off-court work was more impressive than his NBA career

Wes Unseld's former Bullets teammates say his off-court work was more impressive than his NBA career

The unfortunate news of NBA legend Wes Unseld's passing on Tuesday brought two of his former teammates onto the Wizards Talk podcast with Chris Miller to tell stories and share memories of the most accomplished player in Wizards/Bullets franchise history.

Phil Chenier and Bobby Dandridge were both members of the 1978 Bullets team that won the NBA championship. Chenier played with Unseld for nine seasons, while Dandridge knew him both as a teammate and rival. They each spoke glowingly about the larger-than-life character that Unseld was and shared tales of him battling other greats of his time like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

But the part of Unseld's life they kept coming back to was his decades-long work running a private school in southwest Baltimore, MD. Unseld and his wife, Connie, started a private school called the Unselds School that still operates today.

"His contribution to the Baltimore community, the education and development of kids were greater than any rebound or shot that he ever made," Dandridge said. "They have developed many young kids in the inner city parts of Baltimore."

“A guy willing to do anything for the people around him that he loved, respected, been around, played with," Chenier added. "[Connie] is so proud of that school and she said Wes is equally as proud. Wes evidentally was like the jack of all trades over there. He was the janitor, the security person, the maintenance man; he did it all. And he did it proudly and humbly, and I think it speaks to the character."

The Unselds School has been operating since the late 1970s and continues to give resources to kids in an area that lacks them. His work in that area has clearly impressed his peers just as much as his Hall of Fame basketball career did.

Report: Oct. 12 last date of NBA Finals under proposal up for vote Thursday

The NBA's Board of Governors is expected to vote Thursday on Commissioner Adam Silver's proposal for resuming the 2019-20 season, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday. Ahead of the vote, Wojnarowski reported some pertinent details regarding the proposal, including a definitive end date for the NBA Finals. 

In the timeline shared with teams, Oct. 12 is the last possible date for an NBA Finals Game 7, Wojnarowski reported. The NBA draft and opening of free agency reportedly would follow.

Other details of Silver's recommendation to resume the season include a previously reported plan of games involving the 16 teams currently holding playoff position, and six more teams within six games of the eighth seed in each conference.

Those teams include the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference and the New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs, Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference.

While Thursday's vote requires three-fourths passage of the 30 teams on a plan, team owners reportedly expect the board of governors to overwhelmingly support whatever plan is proposed.
