BONES McKINNEY. That would be Horace Albert “Bones” McKinney -- If you aren’t old enough to know who Bones is, get Googlin’!

Bones was a college and pro player, the coach at Wake, and he made regular "guest" appearances on ACC telecasts back in the days of Pilot Life and the ACC Game of the Week. He taught the ACC’s second-leading scorer and NCAA free throws made leader, Dickie Hemric, how to shot a hook shot with either hand.

Bones is also responsible for one of the great basketball quotes of all time:

“The trouble with officials is they don't care who wins.”
