Nice piece from Denis Hamill on NBA official Dick Bavetta.

Born in 1939 as the son of an NYPD cop in a brownstone his grandfather from Italy bought on Eighth St., Bavetta went to St. Saviour’s grammar school, graduated from Power Memorial High — which also gave us Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — and St. Francis College where he played hoops.
