walter p doomiflatchet could make a shot from the other free throw line nine times out of ten but he was a midget they wouldnt let him play wif the 9 foot junglebunnies, wanna impress me put the goal at 20 foot then watch these 12 foot bros dunk im not impressed with a clown thats 6'7" with a wingspan of 5' dunking on a ten foot goal

My guess is that he is either dead or in prison...happens to all of them eventually.

Really? Are you that narrow minded? He is actually coaching and sharing his skills with young players. He is a positive role model for the youth of today. What are you doing for society?

Wallace "Wah Wah" Clayton Jones (born July 14, 1926, in Harlan, Kentucky, USA) is a retired American professional basketball player. A 6'4" forward, he played in the National Basketball Association from 1949 to 1952 with the Indianapolis Olympians.
He attended high school at Harlan High School, in Harlan, Kentucky. He also holds the unique distinction of being an All-American under both legends Adolph Rupp (basketball) and Bear Bryant (football) when both coached at Kentucky. He is the only player to have his number retired in both football and basketball at Kentucky. At the University of Kentucky, Jones was a member of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity.
Jones was selected in the first round (9th pick overall) of the 1949 NBA Draft by the Washington Capitols. He was traded to the Indianapolis Olympians. He played three years in the NBA with the Olympians, averaging 10.2 points per game.
