Nice pick. I decided to go with Greer instead of Thompson because of the abuse problems. Still, I was hoping he'd make it back to me. Ah, well.....

haha, no prob. I wanted with Greer or the guy I chose, Sam Jones. Greer would have gotten the nod had they both been on the board, but I feel I still got a quality player.

Getting a dynamic HOFer in the 6th round works for me. Now I'm just hoping my next pick is around in four picks.

With my 6th pick the team to be named later selects: Billy "Kangaroo Kid" Cunningham

Billy Cunningham played fiercely, coached intensely, and won frequently. And he made it to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame with a career that reads like a how-to book for legends. As a player and then a coach for the Philadelphia 76ers, he was part of two NBA championship teams. Among his numerous career achievements, he was named to the 1966 NBA All-Rookie Team and three All-NBA First Teams. In 1996, he was named to the NBA 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. more...

Thompson was gonna be one of my picks. ****!

I'm still feeling pretty damn good, though. Picking up a guy like Arizin at this point is making me feel confident.

Well, I am at sort of a disadvantage taking over Slap's team and having to catch up and all. But anyways, I can think of no better player to take as a sixth man than the best sixth man of all time (not to mention, one of the best nicknames of all time)...

Vinnie "The Microwave" Johnson

"Johnson earned the nickname "the Microwave" from Boston Celtics guard Danny Ainge for his ability to score many points in a short period of time (i.e., Johnson could heat up the offense of the team in short order) and his "instant defense".



Because I'm jumping in late, I put everyone's teams into a spreadsheet so that I wouldn't take anyone already chosen. However, if I do, please don't hate!

With the 2nd pick in the 7th round the team to be named later selects:
Bill Laimbeer

In 14 bruising NBA seasons Bill Laimbeer made up for his minuscule vertical leap, slow feet, and sluggishness by becoming a master of posturing, muscling, and anticipating -- plus fomenting trouble, pretending to be fouled, and drawing his opponents' ire. Laimbeer was one of the most notorious players ever to throw an elbow, thrust a hip, or feign being fouled. Certainly, no player was ever showered with more boos or unflattering nicknames. Laimbeer was called "the prince of darkness," "a street thug," "an ax murderer," and "His Heinous." more...

Flying Lithuanians take...

"Reign Man" Shawn Kemp



The Seattle SuperSonics drafted Kemp in the first round of the 1989 NBA Draft and he quickly became a force to be reckoned with. Kemp was one of the NBA's premier high flyers with outstanding leaping abilities. At the time, he was the youngest player in the NBA. Half-court lob passes from Gary Payton to Kemp became a regular sight to see. Together with Payton, Detlef Schrempf, Sam Perkins, Hersey Hawkins, and other stars, they became a highly successful squad. After Kemp's second NBA season, he picked up the nickname "Reign Man." Conflicting accounts attribute this to his love of the Seattle weather as a rookie, as well as his appreciation of the Dustin Hoffman movie "Rain Man."[4]

So Clockwork gets 2 picks, yes? His 6th and now his 7th? Has anybody heard from him?

I saw his name mentioned as possibly leaving over the whole Slap deal. Don't know if there is any merit, just saw his name involved.

Anyways, I'm gone for the weekend, so I will shoot JCM a PM for my pick, which is next after CO.

I hate to keep replacing folks, but Clockwork has not posted on the Mane since June 26. He left me no indication that he was going on vacation, so I asked Dipso to come in and run his draft. Hopefully he'll say yes. If anyone knows anybody who would be interested in taking over the team please let me know.

And, if CW comes back in, he gets his slot back.

So, CW has until 11 AM Friday to make two selections.

I have not heard from CW and he hasn't been on the Mane in 10 days. So please take over. If CW comes back, he may take over his team again.

Shack, thanks for jumping in. Make two selections please.

As the David Stern of this league I am disappointed that Slap and CW aren't making their picks. But, in order to get a fair draft for all of the teams I think it's necessary that teams miss no more than one or two picks. Otherwise we'd have a Washington Generals in the mix.

As I have said before, if Slap and CW get back in here they may have their teams back. If they do not like who was selected for them they may discard those players and replace them immediately. However, in order to keep it fair for all involved, the draft will roll on. I hope dumping drafters so quickly doesn't ruffle anyones feathers, but I think this course of action necessary with such a short draft.

And now back to your regularly scheduled programming......
