Carl Lloyd is not a house hold name, Lloyd, Clifton and Cooper all joined the NBA during the same season none of them had to carry the burden alone. Cooper made is debut with the Boston Celtics just one day after Lloyd played his first game with Washington. In basket ball NBA, the players did not meet with the same level of tension. Lloyd had some uncomfortable times, celebrating a win, some guy spat on him after the game. On another occasion a diner refuse to serve him, so he went to his hotel room to eat his dinner,Horace "Bones" Mckinney who was the Washington Coach in show of support joined Lloyd in his room for dinner.
