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.

DAMMIT DAMMIT DAMMIT!

Nice pick.

Shocked Cousy slipped this far. Considered him and Stockton seriously at #17 overall.

Since all the other great big men were taken right away, I'm gonna go with another original:

Image

George Mikan

another Mr. Basketball (apparently there have been many Mr. Basketball's throughout history) and one of the other members of the 25th, 35th, and 50th All-NBA Anniversary teams

Mikan is lauded as the pioneer of Modern Age basketball. He was the original center, who scored 11,764 points, an average of 22.6 per game, retired as the all-time leading scorer and averaged 13.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 520 NBL, BAA and NBA games. As a testament to his fierce playing style, he also led the league three times in personal fouls.[2][6] He won seven BAA and NBA championships, an All-Star MVP trophy, three scoring titles and being member of the first four NBA All-Star and the first six All-BAA and All-NBA Teams. As well as being declared the greatest player of the first half of the century by The Associated Press, Mikan was on the Helms Athletic Foundation all-time All-American team, chosen in a 1952 poll, was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1959, made the 25th and 35th NBA Anniversary Teams of 1970 and 1980 and was elected one of the NBA 50 Greatest Players in 1996.[1][2][6] Mikan's impact on the game is also reflected in the Mikan Drill, today a staple exercise of "big men" in basketball. In addition, when superstar center Shaquille O'Neal became a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, Sports Illustrated graced its November 1996 issue with Mikan, O'Neal and fellow Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, calling Abdul-Jabbar and Mikan "Lakers legends" to which O'Neal was compared, establishing Mikan as one of the greatest Lakers players of all time.


Mikan became so dominant that the NBA had to change its rules of play in order to reduce his influence such as widening the lane from six to twelve feet ("The Mikan Rule"). He also played a role in the introduction of the shot clock, and in the NCAA his dominating play around the basket led to the outlawing of defensive goaltending. Mikan set the stage for the Modern Age of the NBA dominated by tall, powerful players.

Ok, here's 2 guys for my next pick. Wasn't sure who to PM so I'm just putting them here.

1. Clyde Drexler - SG
2. Reggie Miller - SG

Drexler is my preference, but if he's taken, Miller is fine too.

You may want to know who is going to be responsible for putting points on the board for my squad.

You have a question, I have

Image

The Answer.

Score in bunches. One of the top ballhawks to ever lace them up and with Mr. Russell and KG behind him he gets to be even more aggressive going after the ball.

Since a lot of people are going with good slashers lately I am going to take a different approach and go into a defensive mindset at the PF position.

This next pick gives defense and scoring and pairing up with Kareem can give a lethal front court in

Kevin McHale 6'10 PF

Lineup

G - Pistol Pete Maravich
G -
F -
F - Kevin McHale
C - Kareem Abdual Jabaar.

Man I think I am in the toughest spot in the entire process right now b/c I have two nice picks and can really over load in one area and create a HUGE match up problem for anyone, but I might suffer by not being able to get a vital piece of a team puzzle by waiting another 23 picks to get a PG, so with no further ado I select:

Jason Kidd, arguably the best passer in NBA history along with being a post up problem on both ends of the floor and the ultimate floor general as well as being able to hit 3's and clutch shots.

Yes it is twice now and I think as a punishment neither of them gets Walt Frazier and he is forced to sit until I pick at the end of the round.

Yeah what's up Brit, I know I know the excitement of all this. I have to admit this is pretty cool idea if I say so myself.

I'm going to look into putting something small and simple together to do this all the time if people want to and maybe slowly evolving it for the NFL & MLB. But those sports have so many players on their rosters that the entire list of people to have ever played would be very cumbersome.

Getting through rd 3 by Tuesday AM would be nice though.

If we did this for baseball, I have the baseball mogul 2010 simulator and would be happy/willing to run the teams in there (turn off injuries) and sim through the seasons. We could do a bunch of different ones there, like letting each guy be a MLB team and put together an all-time roster for each team.

Damn, I was actually thinking about Walt, but I don't want to make it seem like I'm stealing picks, esp. since I was late. Any possibility of me going before Brit on the next round, since I was considering Walt and the Big O? No worries if not.

Anyway, with my 3rd pick I select Nate "Tiny" Archibald.

i'm taking the unquestioned 3rd best player in the world right now, even though i can barely stand him, Dwyane Wade. not sure if i'm gonna play flash at the point or the 2 yet, i'll see who's left later and make that decision. team him up with Dr. J and there's a lotta points being put up by the Fightin' Kramers

Image



After entering the league with little fanfare as the fifth pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, Wade has become one of the most accomplished players in the NBA today. Wade was named to the All-Rookie team in his first NBA season and the All-Star team the following five seasons. In his third season, Wade led the Miami Heat to their first NBA Championship in franchise history. He was named the 2006 NBA Finals MVP as he led the Heat to a 4–2 series win over the Dallas Mavericks. At the 2008 Summer Olympics, Wade led the United States Men's Basketball team, commonly known as the Redeem Team, in scoring, as they captured gold medal honors in Beijing, China. In the 2008–09 season, Wade led the league in scoring and earned his first NBA Scoring Title.

I thought jr would be here to take my picks, but I maybe able to swing this on my blackberry.

I'm having trouble tracking this, so if he has been picked already than let me know.

I want The Human Highlight Reel, pride of the Atlanta Hawks, at SF.

Seems cruel. Did he break something?

And looking at the last few picks, I would have sworn Dominique went #3 overall. ;-) ;) :wink:

I may not have much D with this guy but he is instant O

at Small Forward, Larvell Blanks selects

Adrian Dantley - Notre Dame
Image]

Height: 6-5; Weight: 210 lbs.
Drafted by: Buffalo Braves (1976)
Honors: All-NBA Second Team (1981, '84); NBA Rookie of the Year (1977); NBA Comeback Player of the Year (1984); NBA All-Star (1980, '81, '82, '84, '85, '86); Olympic gold medalist (1976).

Anyone wanting to get a line on Adrian Dantley the basketball star need only look at his career statistics: 23,177 points, ninth on the NBA career scoring list at time of retirement; a .540 field-goal percentage, one of the highest ever recorded by an NBA noncenter; and 30-plus points per game for four straight seasons. He was a smart, fundamentally sound player who relied on both strength and finesse. The athletic Dantley was a smooth outside shooter and a force on the inside
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

thats cold, Peek.

and nice pick by noles. Dirk is underrated and is great value at this point in the draft. a 7 footer who can step out and shoot against the Russel's, and Kareem's, dragging them outta the lane. i was banking on getting Dirk next round...

Never mind I missed your Dirk pick, everything is set now I am up to date. If we are lucky enough to get CP up twice soon we're good and moving fine.

You the man, no hurry but it is nice you're up and willing.

Perfect scenario is if Rich is still up and noles gets his in, if not no biggie...after all I am going to clean up either way. ;-) ;) :wink:

Being saddled with the 16th pick in the draft, what that has done for me is give me a strategy knowing that I'll never get the best players taken in the odd rounds but that I have to draft solidly in the even rounds. Moreso than any other spot in the draft, I think that I have to build a team with a strategy in mind, which sometimes causes me to ignore numbers and take a couple guys a little earlier than others may have the luxury of waiting.

That said, here goes.

With the last pick in the 3rd round of the draft, I select the Squid:

Sidney Moncrief, SG, Milwaukee Bucks

Image

The Squid was the NBA's first-ever Defensive Player of the Year, in 1982-83. Moncrief repeated the feat in 1983-84 and was one of the most dynamic playmakers on both ends of the floor before his knees caught up with him and sapped him of his athleticism.

As a full-time starter between the 81-82 and 85-86 seasons, Moncrief was a dynamic scorer and jump-shooter and scored between 19.8 and 22.5 pts a game to go along with 5-6 rebs/game from the #2 spot. Moncrief was also an effective passer, dishing out 4-5 assists/game in that time period.

With the athleticism and scoring that other guys are drafting in their backcourt, this was the time for me to try and stop it.





And with the 1st pick in the 4th round of the draft, I select the Glove:

Gary Payton, PG, Seattle Supersonics

Image

The Glove is the only true Point Guard to win the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year award, in 1995-96. He earned 1st team All-NBA Defensive Honors eight consecutive seasons. Payton was no slouch on the offensive end, either, scoring the ball at well over 20 ppg during his prime. His 3 point shooting improved as he aged, and he was an effective passer and facilitator.

My team now features four of the NBA's premier defenders at their positions who can also put the ball in the hoop.

PG - Gary Payton
SG - Sidney Moncrief
SF -
PF - Karl Malone
C - David Robinson
