Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley The Total Tutor will interview Retired NBA & Los Angeles Clippers Star-Harvey Catchings!
Harvey Catchings’ path to the NBA was less than conventional. But an 11-year career that included nine playoff appearances is proof that success is found when hard work and opportunity come together.
“I had decent skills and ability, but I always tried to keep getting better,” Catching said in reference to an NBA career in which he provided rebounding and defense as a big man for Philadelphia, New Jersey, Milwaukee and the Los Angeles Clippers. “Inevitably, at the end of training camp, I was still standing because I went out, worked hard and tried to make my teams better.”
The fact that Catchings had an NBA career that spanned more than a decade might seem like a minor miracle, considering he didn’t really play basketball in high school while growing up in Jackson, Miss. Instead, Catchings played the drums.
“I was a member of the band and was all-state on drums,” Catching said. “It was a wonderful experience, but it became kind of awkward when I kept growing. People started asking me if I was going to play basketball. Coaches asked me if I was going to play.”
So as a 6-foot-6 high school senior, Catchings gave basketball a try. But with extremely limited experience and abilities, his first shot at basketball was an air ball.
Harvey ended his career having played for the Philadelphia 76ers (1974-1978),Toronto Raptors (1978-1979), Milwaukee Bucks (1979-1984), and Los Angeles Clipper (1984-1985).

Our 2015 NFL Draft Insider, Mr. Sean Mewsch, returns to point out and explain rumors surrounding the upcoming draft. The Core Show will also host a debate between a Los Angeles Lakers diehard and a Los Angeles Clippers diehard based around the premise that rooting for the Clippers is the same thing as rooting for Los Angeles. We will also react to what Cleveland Cavaliers forward, Kevin Love, said about his shoulder injury after locking arms with Boston Celtics center, Kelly Olynyk along with more 2015 NBA Playoffs talk. We will react to Bruce Jenner and his admission that he self-identifies as a transgender woman. Is it a publicity gimmick or a lifestyle he's been waiting to live his whole life?
How many of the 16 teams in the NBA Playoffs have a legitimate shot at the championship?
It is a fair question, and it was posed to me this morning on NBC Sports Radio by host Erik Kuselias on NBC Sports Radio. Just to give you a preview, I did not answer "Trail Blazers," "Pelicans" or "Celtics." But I did give an answer that reflects what an odd situation we have on our hands after the first two days of the NBA Playoffs.
Clearly, the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs are both championship worthy. And just as clearly, one of those teams is going to be watching the second round of the playoffs from their sofas. After two days of postseason basketball, it is not unfair to say that the only series worth your while is the one taking place between the Nos. 3 and 6 seeds in the West -- the two teams that finished the regular season with the strongest finishing kicks.
But which team in the other seven series has a legitimate shot to make these NBA playoffs a bit more interesting?
Give a listen and I'll provide you with an answer.
