Big meat that passes well



I've always wanted to have a player on my team with a cranium the approximate size and shape of a small refrigerator.


Funny how small Hakeem looks next to Sabonis....

Yeah, I looked at that pic and thought it was Hakeem, but then said, that guy looks too small to be Hakeem. Wowza

Still not sure though, Bird and Dumars are two great outside shooters so I still waver on whether Nash should start too.
No offense but every time Nash has gotten up in the playoffs the opposing team focuses their offense on him. He is *easily* the worst player to win more than 1 MVP. In fact, in a list of MVP winners.....he is one of a few that stick out like sore thumbs.

Frankly, at this level of competion he get's shredded.

Who are you talking about? Sabonis? He was the most recent pick, and a great one imo. Im embarrassed I didnt pick him up.

Im confused though by your comment of the "best player to never play in the NBA..."

If its not Sabonis, don't post it as we don't want any undrafted players mentioned ITT

He played for Portland Math.....he was drafted as a 31 year old rookie in 1995, but the NBA missed his best years.

Yeah, somehow the 'value' of the MVP award shrunk a little for me everytime I think that Nash has as many MVPs the past decade( and overall) as Shaq and Kobe.

I already have his clone in Dantley, but I can't pass on my first favorite player. This man scored more points in a six-year period than any other player, and of the players coming into the league in 81-82 or later, no one scored more points in the 80s.
