From Jim O'Brien's 1972-73 Complete Handbook of Pro Basketball:
Tough little man, so quick and strong . . . Intense competitor . . . Excellent fast-break middleman . . . Pair of quickest hands in league . . . Became team leader in LA Stars' meteoric rise during last half of 1969-70 season . . . First-team all-star selection in 1970-71 season with Floridians - put the ball up more and finished fourth in league in scoring with 27.2 ppg average . . . Also finished second in assists in 1970-71 with 7.6 per game . . . Calvin carries three-year scoring average of 21.5.  In 1971-72 season he averaged 21.1 points and 5.9 assists for Floridians, whose franchise was folded at end of year. . . "I'm looking forward to the new surroundings," commented Calvin when he learned that Cougars got him in special intra-league draft . . . Waterbug type guard should go well with Cunningham and Caldwell in fastbreak game of Larry Brown . . . No one moves across floor any faster than Mack the Knife . . . "I try to use my assets - speed and quickness - against the taller players," says Calvin.  "I also try to outthink them.  I try to get in position before my opponents make their moves."  . . . Lou Carnesecca, coach of Nets, on Calvin:   "He has unbelievable quickness in getting free for a shot.   You wouldn't believe how much he's improved since his college days." . . . "He runs so damn much and he's such a good opportunist," said Bill Melchionni of Nets.  "He makes the most of what he has."  . . . Bob Boyd, his college coach at USC, says, "There's no limit to what Mack can do.  He is a champion.  His attitude, his manner are absorbed by the entire team."
