He was on a number of highlight videos I owned (VHS, baby) and he of course stuck out to me by way of his incredible defensive ability. Behind the back ball tosses, massive diving stops. He also may have done one of those cartwheel-somersault-back flip moves, I don’t remember. But it’s always really impressive when athletes bust that stuff out.
