Brody still benefiting from leap of faith

They gasp when Brody, who was drafted by the Baltimore Bullets after an All-America season at Illinois in 1965, explains the average NBA salary when he came out was $30,000, maybe $40,000. The minimum was $12,000.

"Today, the average salary is about $5 million," the 69-year-old Brody said. "Maybe if it was today, you're the 12th pick in the NBA, $2.7 million, no-cut contract, I probably make a different decision."

The choice he made changed his life -- and the way of life and thinking throughout Israel.
