Hearing Aid Heroes: Lance Allred Of The NBA
This month, Adrian Seconi talks to the former Otago Nuggets basketball centre. The critically acclaimed author was still finishing off his second book and certainly had some stories to tell. He grew up in a fundamentalist Mormon polygamist commune and battled obsessive compulsive disorder.
He was the first legally deaf athlete to play in the NBA, playing alongside LeBron James at the Cleveland Cavaliers during two day stints at the franchise in He would run up and down the middle of the hardwood and was good for a solid rebounds and points. The franchise had strung together an horrific game losing streak — something it was reminded of a lot. When the Nuggets finally broke the drought with a win against the Manawatu Jets, it was the inspirational Allred who did the heavy lifting.
He scored 22 points and made 15 rebounds but the details of the match have long faded into the background. It was the joy on the faces of the team and the sight of an overcome Allred crying during a post-match interview which has endured. No surprise to hear the year-old has packed enough into the past five years to write another book.
