Former Spur Kenon inducted into S.A. Hall of Fame
Getting inducted into the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame is an incredible honor. The class of 2013, which will be enshrined in February, consists of former baseball player Norm Charlton, 2000 Olympic gold medal winning women’s basketball coach Nell Fortner, Golfer Joe Conrad, Former AT&T CEO Edward Whitacre, Jr., and former Spur Larry Kenon
If you don’t remember Kenon, it’s because he played a long time ago. He actually joined the San Antonio Spurs during their last season in the ABA in 1975. He played five seasons with the team, averaging 21.2 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. He led the team in rebounding every year he was with the team.
"I had a true love for the game," said Kenon, who lives in Boerne. "I enjoyed the game. My generation, we worked hard for a living. That's what I did. Simple as that."
