My best friend & I trotted off to the Dean Dome to watch 69 former players participate. There were many really awesome players from recent years, but the best part for me (aside from seeing Eric Montross play, Phil Ford play, Dean Smith being Honorered) was watching the players from the 40's play at the opening of the game. 3 on 3 1/2 court only.
At the end of the game, they had all the players that were there with their jersey's in the rafter set up on the floor. Each player passed to each other until they got it the hands of the the player with his jersey recently retired: Tyler Hansbrough.
Here Phil Ford has the ball near center court.
I absolutely love this place.
All troubles go away when I'm here.
My favorite moments:
Dean Smith being honored at 1/2 time
Phil Ford playing (awesomely I might add)
