June 26, 1992 was the evening I took these pictures of the Rollins Band at Trees in Deep Ellum, Dallas, TX.  I was never a huge fan of any Rollins Band LP other than Lifetime.  After begrudgingly going to this show I was a fan of the Rollins Band without fail.  Say what you like about ole Henry but live he and the band never disappoint.  The Toadies from Fort Worth opened the show and played their usually great set.

Why not?

What a random grab bag 😂

1990-91 NBA Hoops
Tree Rollins
#413

As a kid reading the back of a Tree card, I didn’t quite understand how he’d been in the league so long. He never averaged even 10 points per game. The true importance of defense, especially post defense, didn’t click with me as a little dude. But Tree in his time was nicknamed “The Intimidator” for a reason. Rollins remains ninth all-time in blocked shots in NBA history.
