Just when the Truman State community had gotten used to the four person Paino family, it has grown to five. They recently adopted a puppy named Oscar. According to Paino, his daughters finally wore him down and he couldn’t say no to the cute, furry little friend. The Index asks him about the new addition to the family.
Grace Bueckendorf: Why did you choose the name Oscar?
Troy Paino: It actually does have significance. He was named after Oscar Robertson. Probably no students will have heard [of him]. He was a great basketball player from Indianapolis, Ind., and in many respects, he was the Jackie Robinson of high school basketball. He led an all-black high school team to back-to-back state championships. I’ve always looked up to Oscar Robertson. He’s a role model, he’s one of the greatest NBA players of all time. A lot of people put him as one of the top five players ever to play the game. He’s a pretty phenomenal basketball player.
