Silk More Than Smooth; He's Also a Class Act

September 14, 1985

First, Bob McAdoo was released and now Jamaal Wilkes has been waived. I hope the Lakers know what they are doing. Granted it was a business decision but that does not make it any easier to watch one of the NBA's finest and most consistent players being told he is no longer needed. And after he had worked so hard all summer to rehabilitate himself after the knee injury.

As far as class, dignity and intelligence are concerned, Jamaal is without peer. I will miss seeing Silk in a Laker uniform but have no doubt he will come back to haunt his former teammates with his 20-foot layups. I will be cheering the loudest!
