Great Payton pick... he was someone I liked when this started because he's about as underrated as they come.

My real strategy is to come up with a lineup that can be referred to by a simple one-word nickname. I'm 80% there with the Glove, Squid, Mailman and Admiral.

I have Swerb's picks for this rd, but he gave them to me earlier before previous rd was up, so I will wait in case he chooses to make an adjustment.

I'll let him decide for himself. We've made some progress this weekend.

Damn it Swerb... I was hoping he would last just one more.

DAMN IT!

Gonna have to go with "Big Game" James now...

Worthy will be remembered for his breathtaking athletic skills -- the blinding speed, the smooth, effortless glides to the hoop, the one-handed tomahawk jams. And he will be recalled as the ultimate clutch player -- his career postseason field goal percentage of .544 ranks among the top 10 on the NBA's all-time playoff list.

"I don't think there has been or will be a better small forward than James, and I don't think people appreciated that," said his coach, Pat Riley, to the Los Angeles Daily News upon Worthy's retirement. "He was always such a quiet guy. But when he was in his prime, I can guarantee you, there wasn't anybody who could touch him."

Guess I'm up.

Need to grab a guy who can spread out the defense and someone who's willing to take the big shots as the clock is winding down. Once this guy gets on a roll it's hard to stop him. Just ask Spike Lee

i need another banger, someone who can be a force defensively for my team. so i'm gonna take, from Akron, Ohio, Mr. Quadruple-double Nate "the great" Thurmond.

Image

In 12 of Thurmond's 14 seasons, either Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made First Team All-NBA at center. Thurmond averaged 15 rebounds per game throughout his career which is 5th on the all-time list. He was the first NBA player to record a quadruple-double. He is also one of three players to average 21 points and 22 rebounds per game over a two-year stretch (Chamberlain and Russell are obviously the other two). Thurmond didn't put up the awesome offensive numbers like some of the other greats but few were better defensively. He finished in the top ten of the MVP Voting three times including a second-place finish to Chamberlain in '67.

I need a banger too, especially since there isn't much physicality in my lineup as of now. So I'm going with Wes Unseld, the 6'7" power forward out of Louisville. Rookie of the Year and MVP in 1968-69. Averaged a double-double at 10.8 points and 14 rebounds per game, led the NBA in rebounding in 1974-75 and was the heart and soul of the only Championship team in the history of the Washington franchise. One of the roughest and toughest to ever play this game.

I clearly need a shooter to space the floor and keep the defenses honest. This guy can take it to the rim, dish the ball a bit and is a solid rebounder from the 2 guard position. Plus, he is an Oscar award winning actor for his work in Harvard Man with a pre-Entourage Adrian Grenier. I will take the rich man's Reggie Miller, Jesus Shuttlesworth from the University of Connecticut:

Damn, I have probably seen Harvard Man twice during rainy Sundays on HBO and what not and had totally forgotten Jesus was in it.

LOL

One of those movies that is so horrible it's good. Unintentional comedy to say the least.

And how could you forget to mention Sarah Michelle Gellar tw?

PS: The intro to that movie shatters the unintentional comedy scale, especially the cigar.

Ray Allen is one of the most underrated players in NBA history. Few have had such a pure stroke. Not defending solely cause it's my pick, but the guy is impressive. Not his fault he toiled away on shitty teams in Milwaukee and Seattle.

FUDU PM'd me his pick. I wanted this guy down the line, but I'm not going to get him. So it's with a heavy heart that I announce, on DU's behalf, his pick: Bernard King, small forward from the University of Tennessee, the King of New York, and one of the game's all-time greatest scorers.

One of those movies that is so horrible it's good. Unintentional comedy to say the least.

And how could you forget to mention Sarah Michelle Gellar tw?

PS: The intro to that movie shatters the unintentional comedy scale, especially the cigar.


What an awful movie across the board. I usually have trouble getting through the part where Adrian trips out across Boston. I did forget SMG, but then, I neglected the two "assistant coaches" Rick Fox introduced Jesus to at "Big State." I may select John Turturro as my coach...he did great things at Big State.

I just realized it is on Hulu in its entirety.

Hard to believe anyone even actually spent money on producing that.

Just so bad you half the laugh. A lot.

Looks like I am going to have to go a different route since I wanted Ray Allen. However I think that I should pull from the 2003 draft. Since we have had Lebron James and Dwayne Wade already selected I will go with another scorer that has a national title to boot.

Thanks for doing that Herm, especially under the circumstances.

:cheers:

And if I do say so myself it was sweet pick, maybe the pick of the draft.

Bernard King is without question one of the top scorers in NBA history, maybe only Jordan, Chamberlain could be said for certain to make it look easier, and considering I have Wilt I like my chances a lot. More complete offensive game than Dr. j and basically Jordan before Jordan. A shame that kid got hurt he could have been Jordan arch rival for years. Drive to the hoop on anyone and hit the 17-18 footers all day. 50 pts on any given night was a real possibility for Bernard, and he did it efficiently at 51%.

Wilt
George Gervin
Bernard King
Jason Kidd.

Scary offense considering Kidd will be dishing to 3 guys that can score 78 pts as a trio on an average night.

Me happy.

OK, I need a PG. It might sound like a slight stretch, but he averaged 18 points and 9 assists per game for his career.

From Cal, the original KJ...Kevin Johnson.

I'd go as far as to say he was one of the major victims of his era and the limitations for what they could do medical at that time. This guy gets hurt the way he did now and he's remembered as a much better player.

Still pretty damn good. Chris Paul-like clone.

After building up front with two of the best defensive players to ever grace the front court, it is time for someone to put the biscuit in the basket.

And NOBODY put it in the basket more often during the decade of the 80's that this scoring machine:

I started out with 3 legends at their positions. Now it's time to get down and dirty.

Starting at Forward:
Image

The Worm - Dennis Rodman
2x NBA Defensive Player of the year
7x consecutive Rebounding Champion
7x NBA All-Defense 1st team
5x NBA Champion

And at the other forward:
Image

The Big D - Dave Debusschere
6x NBA All-Defense 1st team
8x All-Star
member of NBA's 50th anniversery team

2 of the greatest defenders of all-time to go along with Jordan as an impenetrable inside-outside defensive unit and basically get out of Jordan's way on the offensive end. They can probably interchange at the forward spots but to be technical Rodman will be SF and Big D as PF.
Fuck the Browns...

Point guard. Hmmm. I do not know if this guy should qualify. Has not really been around long enough, IMO to be listed in this type of draft. However, when all is said and done we may have a top 5 guy on our hands.

Score.
Distribute.
Defend.

Sounds like a PG to me.

For my final starter, I will select:

Chris Paul, PG, New Orleans Hornets

At power forward, Elton Brand.

Since 1999, he's averaged 20 ppg and 10 rpg for his career, and also great at blocking shots. Although he's been slowed by injuries recently, he's a top 5 power forward in the last decade.

To round out my insane starting 5 (with a ridiculous ability to score points) I am taking Dave Cowens, yet another perennial All star/All NBA defense/NBA MVP, that might be the most intense on the court player ever.

Wilt was already a lid on the hoop but getting past Dave to get to Wilt?
