Former Georgetown Hoyas forward Michael Graham was a recent guest on ‘Derrick Gervin’s As Good As It Gets’ podcast, hosted by former New Jersey Nets’ forward Derrick Gervin, and Rickey Hampton of TheAfricanAmericanAthlete.com.
In 1984 the 6-foot-10 Graham, just a freshman, teamed with Patrick Ewing to give the Hoyas and coach John Thompson a formidable and bruising front line that would lead Georgetown to a National Championship with a victory over Hakeem Olajuwon and the Houston Rockets.
Graham only played one season at Georgetown before transferring to the University of District Columbia. In that one season, Graham created a legacy with his energetic, physical brand of play that exits to this day. Graham discussed the controversies that arose during his time at Georgetown, including the so-called ‘Hoya Paranoia’ and their physical style of play. Graham is also in the process of writing a book about his life and basketball career. If you are interested in helping Graham fund his book you can cash-app him at $Graham209.
