NBA retiree Dwight Davis, a giant of a man giving big assists to others.
One thing i have learned about the organization led by Arnie Fielkow (NBRPA), a bunch of really tall guys who lived glorified careers do get older, as we all do. And while they still tower over most of us, they are never too big to reach down to help those who are younger, smaller and needier than themselves.
Welcome back, Arnie.
You remember our friend Arnie Fielkow.
How often do we know of a person who leaves the City of New Orleans for perhaps green pastures yet leaves a mark on the city for the betterment and future of this community?
Essentially, that is what Arnie Fielkow has done and is doing.
As the New Orleans Saints now begins its 10th year since returning back to the city after the devastations of Hurricane Katrina, there are few people who will long be remembered as a symbol of resilience, defiance and determination as one man, Arnie Fielkow.
After the 2005 hurricane, the Superdome was not usable, the team had to relocate for the upcoming season. The owner Tom Benson, at the time, expressed interest in moving the team.
NBA All Star game, pro-basketball alumni and of course, New Orleans and more….
Today, former New Orleans Saint top executive, ex-New Orleans Council President and current President and CEO of the National Basketball Retired Players Association, Arnie Fielkow, will discuss these and other issues in a Facebook Live event hosted by Bayoubuzz Publisher, Stephen Sabludowsky.
