So I only have 2 guys from my original want list left over right now. What's the odds that noles and larvell take both of them back to back right now?

Had those Laker teams had a competent point guard, any players taller than 6'6 with any talent, they would have been unbeatable. Like the team I'm about to put together is going to be.

They went to the Finals eight times with no supporting cast whatsoever.

You dick! :fu:

I had half of my write up done on Thomas. Damn you noles, damn you!

j/k

Well much like these 2 have flip flopped on different lists of top point guards so had my decision to pick one of them.

As my starting point guard, Larvell Blanks selects....
Utah Jazz point guard, John Stockton
Image
that's not a pass he's throwing to my Center, that's a dagger


1988 Named NBA Player of the Month in February
1988-89 Led the NBA in steals (3.21 spg)
1989-90 Highest single-season assists-per-game, average 14.5
1990-91 Record for most assists in a single season, 1,164
1992 Won Olympic gold in Barcelona
1993 Named co-MVP with teammate Karl Malone
1994 Selected to the All-NBA team First Team
1995 Selected to the All-NBA team First Team
1995 Set the NBA record for career assists
1996 Set the NBA record for career steals
1996 Record for most seasons leading league in assists
1996 Selected as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History
1996 Won Olympic gold in Atlanta
1997 Played nine consecutive All-Star games , since 1988
2000 Broke John Havlicek's record of 1,270 games played with one team
2001-02 NBA career leader with 15,177 assists and 3,128 career steals

Would love to see him and the Dream run a pick and roll

Oh, you are a cruel, cruel man. I was all set to put a different spin on Stockton-to-Malone.

People always talk about the mass quants of assists, but when the Jazz needed a big shot, they ALWAYS went to the little guy. Stock is one of the underrated clutch players of all time.

EDIT- Re: that shot against the Rockets. Greg Gum-Ball, Snapper Jones, and Bill Walton called that game for NBC. When Stock came wide open and caught the in-bounds pass, you can hear Walton go, "Uh-oh." Indeed.

Well now I guess I have to take a different approach being that the 3 top point guards on my list are gone. I think I'll do this -- since the quality bigs are coming off quickly, I'm going to move Tim Duncan to center and draft a power forward:

Bob Pettit

Image

The first ever NBA MVP (1955), Pettit is often credited as revolutionizing the power forward position in the NBA. Because of his scoring and rebounding ability, he is considered the predecessor to Elgin Baylor, Jerry Lucas, Elvin Hayes, Bob McAdoo, Kevin McHale, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett. He is also the only player in NBA history to average more than 20 points in every season that he played (with Michael Jordan being at exactly 20 ppg).


NBA Rookie of the Year
4× NBA All-Star MVP
2× NBA MVP
NBA 25th Anniversary Team
NBA 35th Anniversary Team
NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team
10× All-NBA First Team Selection (2nd most all-time)
1× All-NBA Second Team Selection
11× NBA All-Star
2× NBA Scoring Champion

I almost posted a pic of present day Pettit in a shirt and tie. Looking through google images, you'd think he's part grizzly or something. Dude looked like teen wolf, it's almost offensive.

Since Stockton is no longer an option, Elvin Hayes it is. (No time to read double check, nobody took him correct?)

Sorry for the delay.

My pick is one of the great marksman (and one of the great assholes) in the history of the game. The 1975 NBA Most Valuable Player, he led a seemingly overmatched Warriors team to a shocking sweep of the Bullets in that year's Finals. Don't guard him one-on-one, don't send him to the free-throw line, and whatever you do, DO NOT put him in the same broadcast booth as Bill Russell.

My pick: Rick Barry, small forward from the University of Miami (Fl.)

Guys expect the draft to go slow tonight, Friday night, big big big Cavaliers game.

If you have the ability to check in and make a pick great if not let's not get our panties in a bunch guys.

I know I will not be in able to put picks on for anybody, drinking, playing corn hole and Cavaliers game for me.

since i was out hacking it up on the links, pup got the esteemed honor of telling everyone my pick. i had to get me a big man as they were flying off the board like hot cakes, so i took the Big E, Elvin Hayes.

Image

One of the most talented power forwards ever to play the game, Elvin Hayes used his trademark turnaround jumper and aggressive defense to win a secure place in the NBA record books. Fifth on the all-time list in games (1,303) and third in minutes played (50,000), he missed only nine contests in his 16 years in the league, a tribute to his durability and conditioning.

An All-Star for each of his first 12 seasons, he scored more points (27,313) than any other player in NBA history except for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan and Moses Malone. He also ranks fourth on the league's all-time rebounding list with 16,279 boards.


Hayes joined the NBA with the San Diego Rockets in 1968 and in his rookie year, he scored a career-high 54 points against the Detroit Pistons on November 11 of that year. As a rookie, Hayes led the NBA in scoring with 28.4 points per game, averaged 17.1 rebounds per game, and was named to the NBA All-Rookie Team. Hayes' scoring average is the fifth best all-time for a rookie, and he remains the last rookie to lead the NBA in scoring average.

In Hayes' second season, he led the NBA in rebounding, becoming the first player other than Bill Russell or Wilt Chamberlain to lead the category since 1957 (Chamberlain was injured during much of the season). In Hayes' third season, 1970–71, he scored a career best 28.7 points per game. In 1971, the Rockets moved to Houston, enabling Hayes to play in the city of his college triumphs. In 1972, Hayes was traded to the Baltimore Bullets, where he teamed with Hall-Of-Famer Wes Unseld to form a fierce and dominating frontcourt combination. The 18.1 rebounds per game Hayes averaged in 1974 is the third highest rebounding average of any NBA player since Wilt Chamberlain retired in 1973.

Hayes and Unseld later led the Washington Bullets to 3 NBA Finals (1975, 1978, and 1979), and an NBA title over The Seattle SuperSonics in 1978. He shined brightly, especially in the NBA playoffs. During the Bullets' championship season (1978), he averaged 21.8 points and 12.1 rebounds per game in 21 playoff games. One year later, he set an NBA Finals record for most offensive rebounds in a game (11), in a May 27, 1979 game against the SuperSonics.

On June 8, 1981, Hayes was traded to the Houston Rockets. The "Big E" closed out his career with the Rockets in 1984. Hayes had a career scoring average of 21.0 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.

Guys,

ajunior148 will take over my squad while I am out of town. If I happen to get back and we're still picking than we'll make the picks together, but until then it's all in his capable hands.

Wow, I might get Jay Guidinger as my center, even though his claim to fame is being at church with me (back when I went) for Christmas in Fairlawn. Fairlawn was great back in the day for seeing Cavs. I saw Craig Ehlo mowing his yard one day, and I also bumped into Lenny Wilkens at the Dairy Mart.

Lots of teams have a strong scoring 2/3. Gotta combat that defensively somehow. I will take one of the best wing on ball defenders there was. Quick first step, tenacious and absolutely no slouch on the offensive end: 16/6/5/2 steals

Scottie Pippen, come on down.

It would appear as though my goal is to give up zero points in games played.

Don't know if I can even type the name.

Cannot believe I am doing this.

Christ do I suck.

Not happy.

With the 31st selection, I take, Power Forward:

The Big Ticket

Ashamed. At least I found a T-Wolves picture, and dunking over another worthless Celtic.

Probably out for a while. Might want to put round 3 on hiatus until tomorrow AM. If not, I will make my pick late tonight. Have to research to find a non-Celtic.

Damnit Pup, now I gotta figure on someone else. You probably saved me though, having Jordan and Garnett on the same team probably would have been an immediate and emphatic "NO" from all the Cleveland faithful voting. My 1st choice of 2 this go-around is going to be:

Image

The First Great Point Guard aka Mr. Basketball aka The Cooz

Bob Cousy

6x NBA Champion
13x All-Star
12x All-NBA First or Second Team
1958 NBA MVP

One of only 4 players selected to the All-NBA 25th, 35th, and 50th Anniversery teams.

In his first 11 seasons in the NBA, Cousy led the league in assists eight consecutive times and introduced a new blend of ball-handling and passing skills, earning him the nicknames "The Cooz," "Houdini of the Hardwood", and—as he was regularly introduced at Boston Garden—"Mr. Basketball."




Pick #3 for me coming up soon.
Fuck the Browns...
