I tried to go offensive fire power for my starting 5, then defense and role players for my reserves... Bobby Jones was fantastic. 8-Time all D 1st team. Incredible.

You guys are making this way to easy for me.

I select yet another 20 ppg and 10 rpg Power Forward.

This guy is the personification of consistent. It was between him, Yao, and Chris Webber last pick. I got 2 of the three. I had a feeling he would fall to me though watching Hornacek go where he did! lmao.

Anyway, this guy is much healthier than Webber ever was, not as dominant, but he should be, underutilized imo.

Elton Brand

20-10 since he came in.

The tream to be named later selects:
Drazen Petrovic

Drazen Petrovic was the advent of one of the most far-reaching changes in the makeup of the NBA -- the international influence. During the late 1980s there was the arrival of significant numbers of talented European players, a migration accelerated by the fall of communist governments in Eastern Europe. But no arrival from the former Soviet bloc was more eagerly anticipated than that of Drazen Petrovic. In four short seasons in the NBA, he was a blazing comet of tireless enthusiasm -- with shooting skills to match -- who made an everlasting mark. He was posthumously enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002. more...

All time leader in Blocks per game to spell at Center? Done and done!

A blurb on Yardley.

Quote:
At 6'5", Yardley was a good-sized forward in 1950's basketball, and was described as "an offensive-minded player with a knack for scoring" in his Basketball Hall of Fame biography. Described as a "flamboyant" and "gregarious" player who "never did anything without flair", Yardley had a stellar 7-year career, making the NBA All-Star team every year except for his rookie season. He led the Fort Wayne Pistons to two NBA Finals before the team moved to Detroit in 1957. In '57-58, the Pistons' first year in Detroit, Yardley led the league in scoring, averaging 27.8 points per game, and tallied 2001 points, just enough to make him the first NBA player to score 2000 points in a season. That year, Yardley also set NBA records for most free throws attempted (808) and most free throws made (655), and was named to the All-NBA First Team for the first and only time in his career.
Following a sixth All-Star season in 1959-1960, in which he averaged 20.2 points per game, George Yardley retired from basketball at the age of 31. He was the first player in NBA history to retire after averaging at least 20 PPG in his final year. Although Alex Groza had a 21.7 PPG average in his final NBA season in 1951, his career ended as a result of a lifelong ban, instead of a voluntary retirement like that of Yardley's. He made a brief comeback in the short-lived American Basketball Association with the Los Angeles Jets in 1961-62.
