Randy Newman is one of the most influential songwriters in history, with more than 40 albums to his name, and the songwriter has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Famer’s Rock androll Hall of Famers.
But the real story is that he was also a really, really good basketball player.
He was drafted in the sixth round of the 1967 NBA draft and immediately became one of, if not the, best players in the NBA.
His success led to him being named an All-Star for the first time, winning the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award.
Newman also became the first African-American to be selected first overall in the draft.
In the 1970s and ’80s, Newman was also an All Star for the NBA and a member of the All-NBA First Team for the 1980s and 1990s.
He won two NBA titles, two league MVP awards, two NBA Most Valuated Players awards, and was named to four All-Rookie Teams in his career.
He became a beloved figure in the game of basketball and is still beloved today.
Newman’s life story was recently profiled in The New York Times and featured in a documentary, The Life and Times of Randy Newman.
And he has also been honored with a number of awards, including being inducted in the Country Hall of Music Hall Of Fame.
Newman is also the author of the book The Greatest American Song, which was published by Simon & Schuster in 2011.
