B.H. Born seemed destined for a long career in the NBA. But after his decorated college career, he played a one-on-one game with a future NBA legend who was still in high school at the time. And that changed everything.
B.H. Born was born in Osawatomie, Kansas, before moving to Medicine Lodge, where he made a name for himself as one of the best high school basketball players in the country. “I lived right across the street from the gym and I went to the Methodist church, which was right by the school,” Born said of his early days. “I had a job at the store, which was half a block from my house. My scope wasn’t too wide for quite a while.”
