    Man I haven't heard that name in a long long time. When did he play for ISU? I want to say Tim Floyd coached him, but not sure?

    Re: Mike Born

    He runs a basketball camp every summer at Aspen in dsm. Was kinda cool to see him in there, last year he was out front when I was going in to work out. He commented on my ISU shirt, smiled and said "go Clones."

    Re: Mike Born

    Thanks for the info. Ran around with Mike, Terry Woods, and Paul Doerfeld (sp) in college. Mike did a really cool graphic design of Johny. Wondering if anyone's got one and would be wanting to part with it. I don't know what kind of work you'd call it but it was tiny dots spaced closer for shading and wide for lighter areas. The picture was a lose-up fo Johny's face, and I'd love to have one.

    Re: Mike Born

    I have one of the Johnny O pictures, #253 of 950 prints made.
    Mike was a good friend of my daughters and gave me a signed copy. As I remember, Mike and Johnnny sold these to raise money for a charity--can't remember which one.

    After working part -time for the Blazers,I believe he is now working full-time for them.

    Re: Mike Born

    Can't imagine you'd want to part with it coming from a friend like Mike. It's awesome that there are some floating around. I was at Mike and Terry's apartment the night he brought the original home and was planning the sale of them. Being a broke college student I decided to spend my money on beer instead. Awe, to be young and stupid.

    Always enjoyed watching Mike play ball. He married one of the finest looking & nicest girls to ever come out of my high school.
