OK, wow I'm torn.......

Those Cheap Bastards select:

Jerry Lucas, F-C, 1962-1974,
Royals, Warriors, Knicks

The 6-8, 240 lb. Lucas hauled down 12,942 rebounds for an average of 15.6 per game, the fourth-best career mark in NBA history behind Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell and Bob Pettit.

Lucas was named to seven All-Star teams in his 11-year NBA career.
Playing for three teams in his 11-year career -- the Cincinnati Royals, the San Francisco Warriors and the New York Knicks -- Lucas tallied 14,053 points (17.0 ppg) and finished with a lofty .499 career field-goal percentage, an impressive statistic considering that many of his points came on rainbow jumpers launched from long distance.

Lucas had the rare distinction of winning championships at every level of competition -- in high school, college and the pros. He was even a member of the 1960 U.S. Olympic basketball team that won a gold medal in Rome.

Teammates appreciated his clutch play. Dave DeBusschere, a standout forward for the Knicks, said of Lucas in 1972: "He gets the big rebound, makes the big play on defense, makes the tap shot when you need a basket the most."

I was hoping that Walton's modern goofiness would continue to hide his greatness from the youngsters here.

What turned me off on him was the injuries. Wasn't his career greatly shortened due to his foot? I mean, no doubt a great player, but the injuries were a big turn-off to me. Same reason I've shied away from Grant Hill. The stats are there, but can he stay healthy?

The Fighting Irish round out their starting 5 with "Black Magic" or "Earl the Pearl" Earl Monroe.

Before the arrival of "Magic" Johnson there was another "Magic" -- "Black Magic," also known as "Earl the Pearl." He was Earl Monroe, a dazzling ballhandler and one-on-one virtuoso who made crowds gasp with his slashing drives to the hoop. Monroe joined the NBA in 1967 and parlayed his talents into a distinguished 13-year career. He was part of a changing of the guard in the NBA, arriving at a time when high scorers like Dave Bing and Jerry West were showing that the backcourt could rack up points just as effectively as the center position.

Honors: Elected to Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (1990); NBA champion (1973); All-NBA First Team (1969); NBA Rookie of the Year (1968); NBA All-Rookie Team (1968); Four-time NBA All-Star (1969, '71, '75, '77); One of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History (1996).

Hey all, from the drama in the main forum you've probably see that Slap has been banned, and I don't know how long he'll be out. I think I heard two weeks? Anyway, does anyone have Slap's email addy or phone number? I can put his picks in if I can get in touch with him. But, from his farewell post, it doesn't sound like he's coming back for a while.

I've invited Man-Goblin to take over his team, but if I can get a hold of Slap he can continue. My main goal is to keep this thing rolling.

So, if you're gonna get banned, please wait until after the draft is over. Please.

That is all.

Anyone can drop a player and pick someone else up at anytime.

However, we did have Reggie Bush get drafted in the NFL all time draft.....
