The Greatest Living Basketball Player in Great Britain, Matt Gorman, has been unfairly overlooked back in the States for years now. Unjustly not given credit for his contributions to the 2003 National Title team (1.7 PPG, 2.0 RPG), Gorman had to escape to Ireland and then England to find fame and fortune.
Well the chickens have come home to roost, ya'll. Someone is finally receiving their kahdooz:
No, not you crazy lady. Matt Gorman!
Gorman was a critical part of that 2000-01 WHS team that blazed through Syracuse Corcoran in the Section 3 Class A title game for the school's first crown since 1950. He averaged 19.8 points and 9.8 rebounds per game, and blocked a school-record 130 shots as the Cyclones went 23-1.
Two years later, Gorman was just a college freshman when Syracuse captured the national championship by beating Kansas. He played in nine games for the Orange, averaging 2.3 points per game.
And as if this wasn't enough brouhaha in one day over the former SU forward, news then came of a rare upcoming appearance in the Syracuse area:
Gorman will join his former Syracuse University teammate at the first of two weekend session of McNamara's basketball camps at Onondaga Community College. The first session will be held on June 12-14 with another camp scheduled for June 19-21.
Do I smell a 2003 Championship team reunion? Hey, Carmelo's available now...
I just hope Gorman will be on his best behavior at the camp. I don't know happy the parents would be if they heard Matt was putting on his infamous one-man show during mealtime:
