I was at that game as a 9 year old fan in awe of the players who were just a few feet away from me. Two of my uncles, at various times, played for the Lenox Merchants in different incarnations(not the one that beat the Knicks)...Many years later, while going to college in Boston, I went to the Celtics offices to try and get a game ticket. I happened to bump into Red Auerbach and mentioned I was from Lenox and knew Butch Gregory. I found myself at the game that night. I will never forget that Elgin Baylor, Bob Cousy, Jerry West all played on the same gym floor that I would play on as a pre-teen and teenager.

Hi i am Tyler from lenox Hish School and i am doing a project on the lenox merchants and i was wondering if it would be possible for me to interview you. Any facts you can give me about the Lenox Merchants semi pro team would be very helpful. If you would like to help me out just email me at tbesse@lenoxps.org
