ABA Most Valuable Player (1972)
ABA Playoffs Most Valuable Player (1972)
6 NBA All-Star (19781979, 19811983, 1986)
5 ABA All-Star (19721976)
ABA All-Star Game MVP (1974)
ABA Rookie of the Year (1972)
5 All-ABA First Team (1972–1976)

NBA All-Defensive Second Team (1978)

I wanted toughness, and by all accounts, Gilmore was a straight badass

while he was not the other option i was looking at, he was on my top 3 of my next picks. i kinda felt like i had a lot of "old school" guys and wanted a little more fresh face so to speak but definitely a solid pick.

How do you guys want to have our teams judged? Should we open it up to all voting, or just have a small panel of other posters be judges (guys like mathguy, canes2006 and other reputable posters etc)?

Or we could just let TVSG pick the winner

Let me pass out a "damn" to Orangeish - Gilmore was heading to the top for me too, but I've already got Wilt on the bench.

well i would set a poll up for anyone to vote, and leave it up for say a week? request an explanation with a vote as to why they picked a certain team. you could also have a "show voter" option on the poll so we can make sure we are not all voting for ourselves. maybe even an agreement of no voting for your team kinda like the coaches do.

Yeah, poll would def be public, and I say we can all vote, but you have to vote for someone elses team.

Picks are now in OP - thanks 719

Ok with my 11th round pick Im going to take Robert Parish, and I have to say I am shocked to see him still on the board. I need another big and hes an all time great.

Career stats-14.5ppg(23,334), 9.1rpg(14,715), 1.5blockspg(2,361), 54% career fg%, 72% career ft%, 4 time NBA champion, 9 time all star, 1 all nba second team and 1 all nba third team.

My Team
PG-Oscar Robertson SG-Kobe Bryant* SF-Rick Barry PF-Dirk Nowitzki* C-Moses Malone
Bench-Isiah Thomas, Melo*, Paul Pierce*, Robert Parish, Dikembe Mutombo, Brad Daugherty
*still playing
