kinda crazy j rich never made an all star team. one of those too good to be a role player not good enough to be a star types.

Would like to humbly submit 2015 retiree Ben Gordon to be added to the list. His career went off a cliff as precipitously as anyone I can think of, but Bulls Ben Gordon was a nice player. Kind of amazing to see that he shot 40% or better from 3 every year he was in Chicago. Not sure if I'll vote for him but as a Celtics fan his 2009 playoffs are unforgettable.

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Tuesday, 21 July 2020 12:23 (three weeks ago) link

Yikes in researching my ballot I have discovered that consummate role player Otis Thorpe in fact made an All Star team (92 Rockets). Strike that man from the list.

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Tuesday, 21 July 2020 12:43 (three weeks ago) link
