George McGinnis attended Indianapolis Washington High School from 1966-69. His Washington High School team was the 1969 state champions in basketball. His coach at Washington was Bill Springer who I knew personally because he was a coach at Jennings County before he went to Washinton. From there he attended one year at Indiana University where he averaged 29.9 points per game and was named an All-American. George then went pro with the Indiana Pacers. He led them to back-to-back ABA championships and was the league’s MVP in 1973.Why am I giving you all of these statistics? It is because it took almost 50 years after his time at Washington High School in Indianapolis and all of these accolades before he was named to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Why is this significant? Four other members of the Indiana Pacers are already members of this Hall of Fame and most of them played after McGinnis. Bobby Leonard, who was George’s coach while he played for the Pacers thinks it was politics. Leonard did not divulge what he meant by this. I saw McGinnis play basketball, and few (if any) Indiana players were better than he was at any level. (Information for this article came from article that appeared in the Indianapolis Star.
