HOPKINS COUNTY, KY – On Monday, FEB 9, at 6 PM former UK superstar and Boston Celtics legend Rick Robey visited the Parkway Plaza Mall in Madisonville . Though local citizens knew that a massive snow storm was heading their way, plenty of sports fans still turned out to meet one of the University of Kentucky’s most renowned players.
The purpose of the meeting was two-fold. One reason was for local citizens to get to meet Robey. The other was for Robey to offer Hopkins and surrounding county natives a chance to get into a business project that Robey and several other sports legends started up.
Robey opened the meeting with a chance for attendees to ask any questions regarding his sports history. A number of subjects were discussed, including the fact that Robey still maintains regular contact with his former University of Kentucky teammates. Everyone that showed up to meet Robey seemed to have a good time and the majority departed with a Rick Robey autograph to hang on their wall.
Boston Celtics Legend?
At what exactly was he legendary? Laying wood on opposing bigs? Being big, slow-footed, and white? That would make Greg Kite, Hank Finkel, Eric Fernsten, and Joe Kleine Celtics' legends, too (among others).
