i gotta do some research on some of these players

Hall of Fam (Spottie), Saturday, 16 June 2018 01:58 (three months ago) Permalink

yeah, there's something interesting ones here. some ast/stl leaders from the old school, some playoff performers, some 3 pt specialists, some human trees. i narrowed mine down to about 15-20 and just went with my gut since itll take a few years to get all the big guns out of the way.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 16 June 2018 02:05 (three months ago) Permalink

my favorite discovery was kevin porter, the 4-time assists champ. his best season was with detroit in 78-79. 15.4 ppg, 13.4 apg, 1.9 spg.

Sabonis shouldn't be on here.

Rafer Alston was a career .383 shooter....

i agree abt sabonis, he was only not a 10x all-star because he came over at age 60

Clay, Saturday, 16 June 2018 03:21 (three months ago) Permalink

kinda interesting comparing the bigs on this list. manute bols numbers are super weird, dude never averaged even 4 pts per game. the season he averaged a career high in points (3.9) he averaged 4.3 blocks (in 22 mpg), more blocks than points is hilarious to me.

Camby was better than i remembered. Shawn Bradley was probably a little underrated. Muresan basically played 4 seasons total lol.

Hall of Fam (Spottie), Wednesday, 27 June 2018 04:22 (two months ago) Permalink

being outrageously tall is a role

21st savagery fox (m bison), Wednesday, 27 June 2018 13:29 (two months ago) Permalink

now there is an 8-way tie for 5th

21st savagery fox (m bison), Wednesday, 27 June 2018 13:33 (two months ago) Permalink

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 27 June 2018 14:35 (two months ago) Permalink

lmao just got two ballots and they were almost identical, catapulting two people into the top 5 who previously had no votes

also there is now just a 3-way tie for 5th. i will break tie based on number of 1st place votes (or if none are awarded, 2nd place, etc.)

congratulations to muggsy bogues who i voted for out of short solidarity

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 27 June 2018 14:55 (two months ago) Permalink

theres still time to get yr ballots in folks. every vote counts (literally there is someone in the top 5 with a single vote).

horry was a massive part of the two biggest scams in nba history (suns bench debacle and the 2002 wcf) so i agree.
