Blast from the past: 1968 IBM advertisement featuring Paul Arizin


Despite the fact that he was a star player, Paul Arizin left the NBA when he was offered more money to work for IBM than he was from Philadelphia Warriors. Pretty interesting how much different it was than today, where contracts are guaranteed, and just about any established veteran is making more than five million dollars a season.

I thought this was pretty cool in light of Mad Men returning this week.
