i think i can name every guy on there, assuming that's terry durod standing next to jimmy collins on the right. and if the trainer was ed lacerte and that's harry mangurian next to fitch then i can name every person and not just the players and coaches.

chicago kevin, Thursday, 29 May 2008 17:34 (ten years ago) Permalink

danny ferry no, he was pretty athletic. shawn bradley is in his own category. i see enforcers like joe kleine (who could hit an open jumpshot occasionally) as very skilled in their own way.

that guy who used to be on sacramento, with the beard. scott something
guys like z and vlade divac would be stiffs but for some euro-flair

Despite the career highlight captured in this photo, there is absolutely NO DOUBT that former Timberwolve STOJKO VRANKOVIC was a STIFF:

vlade can't be a stiff, he played in 15 seasons and wound up averaging over 8 boards and almost 12 points a game.

chicago kevin, Thursday, 29 May 2008 17:49 (ten years ago) Permalink

psycho roberts wasn't a stiff either!

Hubie Brown, Thursday, 29 May 2008 18:07 (ten years ago) Permalink

Big Country looked the part, but was actually a decent player until his back gave out.

Vlade edges Seikaly as the best player mentioned here. Neither are anywhere close to a stiff.

Hubie Brown, Thursday, 29 May 2008 18:08 (ten years ago) Permalink

three decent seasons does not a non-stiff make. back troubles only underscore his stiffness.

m bison, Thursday, 29 May 2008 18:10 (ten years ago) Permalink

there were some dark, dark, years where psycho roberts was the sole shining light on some mediocre c's squads. they weren't terrible, they weren't good, they were just kind of there.

huh, my memory must be clouded because according to basketballreference.com, fred was in fact a stiff.

tremendoid, Thursday, 29 May 2008 22:05 (ten years ago) Permalink

He was a career 5 points/5 boards guy and a legit seven-footer. He was the protype.

Hubie Brown, Thursday, 29 May 2008 22:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

Sven Nater almost fit this category, but was just a bit too good to earn the title "big stiff". Gheorghe Muresan, otoh, fits it like a hand in a glove.

I don't think Bonner is a stiff, but one of the most comical moments of the season I saw live was when he tried to D-up Rudy Gay early this season. Pop pulled him after three straight embarrassing scores by Rudy.

Bowie never had an NBA career worth speaking of, but he was a nice person, a hard worker, and did have something to show on court. Too bad his knees never made the transition to the pros.

I didn't realize until I did a Google Image search for "Travis Knight" that that's who the long-haired dude upthread was. I also didn't know there's apparently a porn dude named Travis Knight. Not the same guy, probably.

Not every ex-classmate tracked down to talk about Kavanaugh remembered him as a complete sponge. Former NBA center Chris Dudley, a close friend of Kavanaugh’s at Yale, told the Post: “I went out with him all the time. He never blacked out. Never even close to blacked out.” Turns out, the former Knick might not be the most reliable source about his college years though. In 2010, while running for governor of Oregon as a Republican, he told a local paper that, despite records showing he registered as a Democrat after his freshman year of college, he had no recollection of ever belonging to the party.
