Santa came early


The North Carolina Collection got an early Christmas present this year when two friends of the collection, Snow and Ben Roberts, brought us a copy of Don’t Buy Me Any Green Bananas. I have been looking for this book for at least a decade. As a coach at Wake Forest (1958-1965) and with the ABA Carolina Cougars (1969-1971), McKinney was known for his colorful personality and showmanship. He channels that same zaniness in this collection of his newspaper columns as he expounds on such topics as traveling with family, personal ads by senior citizens, and ticket distribution for NCAA tournament games.
