Wayman Tisdale, The Wayman Tisdale Story [Rendezvous]

Most NBA players might wonder what they’ll do when they get off the court and out of the spotlight, but not Wayman Tisdale.

Most NBA players might wonder what they’ll do when they get off the court and out of the spotlight, but not Wayman Tisdale. Before his 1984 Olympic gold medal and 12 seasons in the NBA, 6' 9" Tisdale was a left-handed preacher’s son from Oklahoma who flipped righthanded basses upside down and grooved at his father’s church. He left the NBA in 1997 and dove fully into his love for funky and melodic fusion, recording eight albums and reaching the top of the contemporary jazz charts before succumbing to cancer at 44. This DVD/soundtrack package, which tells his inspiring story through presciently filmed footage and interviews with Michael Jordan, Marcus Miller, and others, is a worthy testament to this perpetually sunny giant.
