OK, Ludo takes Sam Cassell. As for Slap, he has asked the MG run his draft for him. So.

Eddie Mac is on the clock for one more hour, and I will make two selections for youcan (he PMed me) around 4:30 PM CST.

The Fighting Irish select Walt Bellamy C and Mark Price G

Walt Bellamy

He is forgotten by some as one of the game's dominating big men, but Walt Bellamy had his moments in the sun, despite playing in the shadows of contemporaries Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell. Bellamy averaged 20.1 points and 13.7 rebounds over a career that lasted 13 seasons and one game of a 14th. He is one of only seven players to score more than 20,000 points and grab more than 14,000 rebounds, joining Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elvin Hayes, Robert Parish, Moses Malone and Karl Malone. He played in four All-Star Games and he was Rookie of the Year in 1962.

Honors: Elected to Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (1993); NBA Rookie of the Year (1962); Four-time NBA All-Star; Olympic gold medalist (1960)

G FG% FT% Rebs RPG Asts APG Pts PPG

1,043 .516 .632 14,241 13.7 2,544 2.4 20,941 20.1


Mark Price

The 6-foot former Georgia Tech point guard mystified critics who said he was too slow, too small and too deliberate for a high-level game. Picked first in the second round (25th overall) by the Dallas Mavericks in the 1986 NBA Draft, he was acquired by the Cleveland Cavaliers in a draft day trade that helped turn the team into an Eastern Conference power.

Price, the Cavs greatest point guard of all-time, was known as one of the league's most consistent shooters. He finished his career with a 90.4% free throw shooting percentage, placing him as the league's all-time leader in this statistical area,[1] and a 40% three-point field goal shooting percentage.[2] During the 1988-89 season, Price became only one of five players, along with Larry Bird, Reggie Miller, Steve Nash, and Dirk Nowitzki, to shoot at least 40% from three-point range, at least 50% from the field and at least 90% from the free throw line.[3] Price ranked consistently among the assist leaders, twice won the Long Distance Shootout, and was a four-time All-Star. Price was named to the All-NBA First Team after the 1992-1993 season.[4]

He was plagued by injuries late in his career, a factor in his trade to the Washington Bullets prior to the 1995-96 season. He played one season for Washington before moving on to the Golden State Warriors and later the Orlando Magic, where he played his final season. He retired in 1998. Not long after retirement, Price's number, 25, was retired by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Price and college teammate John Salley are among the very few college basketball players to have had their numbers (not just their jerseys) retired by their school.

The City of Enid, Oklahoma, built a Basketball Arena and named it the Mark Price Arena, as a tribute to the NBA players accomplishments, since he was one of the best basketball athletes in Enid High School

The fact that you have Stockton(my favorite player of alltime) over the glove shows me your NBA info minister knowledge.

I'm not sure where you're going there, but people forget how good the Glove was in his prime. If this were a 'in his prime' draft, I would take Payton in a heartbeat.

Stockton was better PG all around and was a good defender but he wasn't near as good of defender as GP. GP is a 9 time all defensive team player.

With the next pick THE THUGGISH RUGGISH BONE takes.........






Quotes
  • In regards to medication for his behavior Artest said, "I've never taken medication (to control moods) in my life. Doctors have suggested it and I say, 'OK, give it to me.' But then I go home and I throw it in the garbage."[citation needed]
  • On the All-Star game; "They better not put me in the All-Star Game. I won't shoot, but I'll dominate that easy game. I'll be playing hard defense. I'll be foulin'. I'll be flagrant fouling. Everyone will be like, 'What are you doing?'" [7]
  • In regards to Bonzi Wells' free agent status and re-signing with the Sacramento Kings, Ron said, "[Bonzi] called me last week. I told him if he leaves, then I'm going to kill him. Unless he wants to die, he's got to stay (with the Kings)."[6]
Oh yeah, he is also a 15.0 PPG and 7.0 RPG player

ANd he plays defense

BobHorry5 selects Dikembe Mutumbo.

Those Cheap Bastards select:

Bobby Jones, F/G, Nuggets, 76ers

6'9", 210

Of the players remaining on the board, he has the most all defensive team selections.

Jones was known for his outstanding defensive play, earning him eleven All-Defensive team selections, including eight 8 on the First Team. A defensive guru and thinking man's basketball player. A good leaper, Bobby used good foot-work and shrewd on-court anticipation to get strategic defensive positioning. Jones often was a step ahead of his opponent which gave him the upper hand and caused the offensive player to be off-balance.

During his career, Jones played in one ABA All-Star Game and four NBA All-Star Games. He led the ABA in field goal percentage twice, and led the NBA in field goal percentage during the 1977-78 season. In 1983, Jones was selected as the very first NBA Sixth Man of the Year.

Thanks RSDU. I really like the picks that you put together and the fact that we're thinking along the same lines is a great compliment.

Now don't take one of my guys with your next picks!
