Willie and the Simmons family is one of my favorite families out of the Desire Housing Projects.....He also played with the Mailman at Louisiana Tech.

I used to go to the NBL in the 80's. I specifically remember him at a game I went to in 1986. I recognised him at Flinders Street station in Melbourne recently. I went up to him and said, "Hi." He was very friendly. A great person. I took a picture if him and showed my mates. It brought back a lot of memories for us when we were young and following the basketball in Australia.

Willie "B-B" Simmons, wow I never knew that he was drafted by the Sacramento Kings. This man grew-up in the 9th Ward. Man this is awesome revelation.
