Honoring Paul Arizin

897 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Paul Arizin was the first Villanova basketball player to accumulate 1000 career points. An all-American college player of the year in 1949-50, Arizin cemented his legacy as a Philadelphia-area sports legend in 1956 by leading the Philadelphia Warriors to an NBA title. The basketball accomplishments are well-known: 85 points in a game as a junior, NBA scoring champion and 10-time all-star, named in 1996 as one of the greatest 50 NBA players of all-time. Mr. Arizin\'s place is certainly secure in the basketball record books. But we request that Villanova University consider naming the basketball court inside the Pavilion the Paul Arizin Court to celebrate not only Mr. Arizin\'s athletic achievements, but also how he lived his life
