Jackie Ryan grew up in a tough Brooklyn household and swapped football to basketball when he fell in love with the big brown Spalding. Back in the '90s, Ryan was one of the few white guys who could play some ludicrously good basketball.
Ryan was raised in the Windsor Terrace section of Brooklyn, a heavily Irish area, and got to know the Mullins: Chris, who became an N.B.A. All-Star, and Terence, who also played at St. John's. Basketball was the sport of the neighborhood, and even as a boy of 5, Jack Ryan could spin a basketball. He was seen as a prodigy.
