From Pete Maravich to Bob Pettit and Willis Reed, Louisiana has its share of outstanding basketball players through the years.
So many, in fact, that sometimes some names simply get overlooked or maybe under appreciated.
Jimmy Jones fits that category.
A household name he honestly isn’t, even if his achievements, statistics and awards befit someone of Hall of Fame caliber.
