I talked to Vinnie after a game at the palace he was doing radio work for one of the AM sports stations i think. Anyways he was a muscular dude when he was a baller. I was in 8th grade and he didnt seem big to me. I was probably about 6'1" at the time ( I am 6'4" now). He was super nice though, talked with me for about 4-5 minutes and autographed his basketball card for me. Other than John Salley, Vinny is probably the nicest/outgoing piston of the 80's to present (well atleast to fans I am sure lots of the guys are nice but just not fan friendly as VJ or salley).
Always cool when you get to rub shoulders with a childhood sports icon.
