See I wasn't sure of that. I had him listed as a PF, but when I was doing some research everybody had him listed at C. Either way, great player.

BobHorry5 told me his pick when he drafted yesterday. He selects:

John Havlicek, SG, Celtics

While aptly described as soft-spoken and modest, John Havlicek is regarded as the best sixth man in NBA history. "Hondo" who popularized the integral role of the sixth man, was a collegiate star at Ohio State. An All-America and All-Big Ten selection in 1962, Hondo teamed with Larry Siegfried and fellow Hall of Famers Jerry Lucas and Bob Knight to land Ohio State the 1960 NCAA Championship. Havlicek combined his running ability and endurance to establish a style of constant movement on offense and defense that frustrated opponents and added to the Boston Celtics' magic. From the day he arrived in Boston, Havlicek was a scoring threat, and became the first player to score 1,000 points in sixteen consecutive seasons. During his sixteen years with the Boston Celtics, coach Red Auerbach described Havlicek as the "guts of the team."

# NBA championships with Boston Celtics,1963, 1964, 1965,1966, 1968, 1969, 1974, 1976

I am so happy this guy fell to me. Unbelievable in my eyes really.

http://imagecache2.allposters.com/im...le-Posters.jpg

I'm not a big fan of his, but his talent is undeniable, and along with Larry Bird gives me two great shooters. Kobe also is a sick defender, that has no weakness besides his selfishness. I'll take it!

vancejohnson82 06-14-2007 02:04 PM

i guess you didnt hear that the tournament is being held in Colorado

Keep an eye on your boy Kobe

Well, I'm "settling" on a great shooting guard, they call him The Glide:

OK, we're finally making a little progress here. Great work! Remember, you can PM me your picks if you think you might be away from the PC for a bit.

Here's a guy who I'm surprised fell this far, but I'm very glad he did.

I am proud to select Charles Barkley, F, 76ers/Suns/Rockets.

Damn. CB34 was my favorite player growing up. I really wanted him, but after getting the imposing Shaq @ C, I had to go back court. Good pick, CO.

Slap is on the clock at 3:30 PM CST. He has 24 hours to select.

bob horry # 7 nuff said san antonio world champs..... again

-Slap- 06-15-2007 01:11 AM

I'll select what I believe is easily the best player left on the board, forward Rick Barry.

http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/7...y060828eo2.jpg

The only man to lead the NBA (35.6), ABA (34.0) and NCAA (37.4) in scoring. Barry pioneered the point forward position, showing amazing ballhandling skills for a 6'7" player and deadly accuracy from almost any shooting distance.

Barry burst into the NBA as Rookie of the Year in 1966. After two seasons, he jumped to the ABA and led the Oakland Oaks to the ABA Championship. In 1968, the Oaks were the ABA's worst team, with a record of 22-56. Barry joined the team the following season and they improved to 60-18, devastating the opposition in the post season with a 12-1 playoff run to cap off their championship. The mercurial Barry jumped to the New Jersey Nets the following season and nearly delivered them a championship two years later.

In 1975, Barry pretty much singlehandedly carried the Golden State Warriors to the NBA title. The Warriors were huge underdogs to the Washington Bullets, but swept them in four straight games.

http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/9...arriorspl8.jpg
  • Eight time NBA All-Star (1966, 1967, 1973-78)

  • All-NBA First Team (1966, 1967, 1974, 1975, 1976)

  • ABA All-Star First Team (1969, 1970, 1971, 1972)

  • Third all time in career FT% - .893

  • 12th all time in PPG - 24.8

  • 16th all time in points - 25279

  • Consensus All-America (1965)

  • Led the nation in scoring (37.4 ppg) as a senior

  • NBA leading scorer in 1967 (35.6 ppg)

  • ABA leading scorer in 1969 (34.0 ppg)

  • NBA highest free-throw percentage 1973, 1975, 1976, 1978, 1979, 1980

  • ABA highest free-throw percentage 1969, 1971, 1972

  • NBA Rookie of the Year (1966)

  • NBA Finals MVP (1975)

  • NBA All-Star Game MVP (1967)

  • NBA 50th Anniversary All-Time Team (1996)

The combination of Jerry West and Rick Barry gives me two of the most intense competitors who ever played the game, plus two of the greatest clutch shooters who ever lived. I have two coldblooded killers, with almost limitless range, and I would like to see who has a scarier team to defense with the score tied and ten seconds left on the game clock.


The Flying Lithuanians
SG - Jerry West
SF - Rick Barry

Master___Pain 06-15-2007 01:23 AM

Well, my selection is another absolutely lethal shooter, the best long range assassin of the modern era. The Knick Killer aka Skeletor......

http://imagecache2.allposters.com/im...ot-Posters.jpg

Ironically, Miller is tied with the previous pick Rick Berry at #16 in All time scoring

Miller became a household name during the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals against the New York Knicks, due to his phenomenal shooting performance in Game 5 of the series on June 1, 1994, in which he scored 39 points total and 25 in the fourth quarter of the Pacers' 93-86 victory at Madison Square Garden. Miller made several long three-pointers during the quarter and engaged in an animated discussion of his ongoing performance with noted Knicks fan Spike Lee, who was seated courtside. The win gave the Pacers a 3-2 series lead over the heavily favored Knicks, but the Pacers lost the next two games and thus the series.

On May 7, 1995, Miller scored eight points in 8.9 seconds in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Knicks, leading the Pacers to a stunning 107-105 victory. With 16.4 seconds remaining and the Pacers trailing by six points, Miller made a three-point shot, stole the inbounds pass, retreated to the three-point arc and tied the game with a second three-pointer. On the ensuing possession, Knicks guard John Starks was fouled by Pacer Derrick McKey but missed two free throws; Miller rebounded the second miss and was fouled. Miller made both free throws, and the Pacers' defense denied the Knicks' last chance for the win. The Pacers outlasted the Knicks in a seven-game series before losing to the Orlando Magic in the conference finals, also four games to three.

epicSocialism4tw 06-15-2007 01:29 AM

Any reference to "Skeletor" deserves rep. Could there be a more meaningless moniker that sums up both the goofiness and the seriousness of 1980's cartoon characters? All hail Skeletor.
