Ex-ABA Star Still Gets Kick Out of Autograph Requests

Rich Jones played in the heyday of the American Basketball Association. He used to patrol the paint. Now he’s patrolling the floor of a casino.

He played against most of the greats during the early 1970s. Julius Erving is still a friend. Over thirty years since his playing days ended, Rich Jones is still getting fan mail. He’s happy to oblige. After all, good public relations is part of his job as a security official with a Vegas casino.

But if only he’d saved a little more memorabilia from his playing days.
