The Team to be named later selects: Jerry Stackhouse

NBA career
In his first season with the 76ers, Stackhouse led his team with a 19.2 points per game (PPG) average, and was named to the NBA's All-Rookie team. In the 1996-97 season, the 76ers also drafted Allen Iverson. Combined, the two posted 44.2 points per game for the Sixers.

Midway through the 1997-98 season, Stackhouse was dealt to the Detroit Pistons with Eric Montross for Theo Ratliff, Aaron McKie and future considerations. By the 1999-2000 season, his second full season with the Pistons, Stackhouse was averaging 23.6 points per game. A year later, he had a career-high average of 29.8 points per game. In a late season victory over the Chicago Bulls, he set the Pistons' franchise record and the league's season high for points in a game with 57. Still, because he consistently posted low shooting percentages, fans took to calling him "Brickhouse" (the slang term "brick" means a badly missed shot). Stackhouse saw his final action as a Piston with Detroit's elimination in the second round of the 2001-02 NBA playoffs.

During the 2002 offseason, Stackhouse was traded to the Washington Wizards in a six-player deal, the major name involved in the deal being Richard Hamilton. Evidently Detroit saw something in Hamilton they did not see in Stackhouse, and most would agree this trade was instrumental in Detroit's pursuit of a championship.

In his first season with Washington, Stackhouse led the Wizards in points and assists per game with 21.5 and 4.5 respectively. He missed most of the 2003-04 season while recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, playing in only 26 games.

In the 2004 offseason, Stackhouse–along with Christian Laettner and the Wizards' first-round draft pick (Devin Harris)–was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, for Antawn Jamison. Benched for 41 games during his first two seasons with Dallas thanks to groin and continued knee problems, Stackhouse now serves an important role for the Mavericks as a high-scoring sixth man. During the 2004-05 playoffs, Stackhouse began wearing pressure stockings during games to keep his legs warm to aid his groin injury and hold his thigh sleeves in place; also allows for better blood flow to the legs; the practice quickly became a trend among NBA players, with Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and others adopting pressure stockings the following season.

As of the end of the 2005-06 NBA season, Stackhouse was still coming off the bench as the 6th man for the Dallas Mavericks. Although he had been a significant factor in the team's initial NBA Finals series lead over the Miami Heat, the Heat eventually won the series 4-2. On June 16, 2006, NBA Vice President of Basketball Operations Stu Jackson released a statement that Stackhouse would be suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals series for a flagrant foul on Shaquille O'Neal. Jackson called the foul excessive and said it warranted a suspension. This action made Stackhouse the third player from the Mavericks suspended during the 2006 playoffs (Jason Terry was suspended for one game for punching San Antonio Spurs guard Michael Finley in the groin and DJ Mbenga was suspended six games for walking into the stands during Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Finals).

This was a tough choice here. I needed a defensive minded player that could guard the 1,2 and 3 positions and had some offense in their game as well. It came down to Jones and Ron Harper, with Jones 3 point shooting putting just past Harper.

Needing a backup PG, I'm going to go with a guy that before he's done he could be an all-time great. I take...

Chris Paul

**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT**

Ok folks, we have an issue. Freak6 just got banned for 60 days for being an arse in the youtube thread.

So.......

Please take a look at his team and PM me three guys you think fit with his squad and fill a need. Also PM me a coach or three that would work well with his guys. I will take the most voted players for him and make the selections that way.

**I know the temptation is to put crappy people on his team because of the s*** he talked, but let's keep it real and make good choices to complete his squad please** His team is currently:

G -- Kobe, Allen Iverson, Chauncey Billups
F -- Larry Bird, Bob McAdoo, Paul Pierce, Elton Brand, Shareef Abdur-Rahim
C -- Robert Parrish, Yao Ming

Since this is something new we have to deal with I will make Freak's pick at 10 AM CST on Sunday morning. That should give everyone time to get a few choices to me.

This seems like the fairest way to handle the situation at this stage of the draft. If anyone has any thoughts on the matter I would be happy to hear them.

All this being said Phibacka will be on the clock at 10 AM on Sunday morning CST. Sorry for the delay folks.

JCM

All right, let's get things moving again.

Freak6 selects Rod Strickland, PG, Trailblazers, Bullets, 7 other clubs.

Rod Strickland ended his career with almost 8 assits per game. God knows Freak needs someone to distribute the ball on this team.

Phibacka is on the clock until Midnight on Monday, CST.

This fellow was a fiercely competitive 2-time MVP and a champion. He's one of the most underrated players in basketball history, and is a fierce bull of a man with a supreme drive to win.

I'll gladly and proudly take champion, mvp, poet, Mel Daniels.




Mel Daniels

Ht. 6-9
Wt. 225
College - New Mexico
ABA Teams: Minnesota (1967-68), Indiana (1968-69 to 1973-74), Memphis (1974-75)


All-American at New Mexico; ABA's first Rookie of the Year in 1967-68 with the Minnesota Muskies; 2-Time ABA MVP; Led ABA in Rebounds 3 times: 1967-68 (15.6 rpg), 1968-69 (16.5 rpg), and 1970-71 (18.0 rpg); ABA All-Time Career Leader in Rebounds with 9,494; 7-Time ABA All-Star; 5-Time Member of ABA All-Pro Team; Member of all 3 Indiana Pacers ABA Championship Teams; Unanimous Selection to ABA 30 Man All-Time Team

From Jim O'Brien's 1972-73 Complete Handbook of Pro Basketball:
Mel has been a most consistent star in the ABA from its beginning . . . Has won just about all available awards in ABA, and respect in NBA from those who have competed against him in all-star contests or seen him in action . . . A fiercely competitive, driven man . . . When challenged he is as awesome as the Loch Ness monster . . . Favors bulling opposing pivots into the cheaper seats . . . League's MVP in 1969 and 1971, and All-Star Game MVP in 1971 . . . ABA Rookie of the Year in 1968 . . . Led Pacers to ABA title in 1969-70, 1971-72 and 1972-73 seasons . . . Enjoys horseback riding and outdoors in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he went to school, made All-America and was No. 1 draft choice of NBA Cincinnati Royals . . . Joined ABA with ill-fated Minnesota Muskies . . . Pacers gave up two players and cash to get him for second ABA season and it was an absolute steal . . . Writes poetry about his personal experiences, prefers Poe for reading

MEMORIES OF PAT COSGROVE: It is a shame Mel Daniels doesn't get the respect that he earned. During the first six years of the ABA he was as good as Nate Thurmond. He certainly deserves to be in the Hall Of Fame before Walt Bellamy. During Game 5 of the 1971-72 ABA Finals against the Nets, Daniels made a couple of plays (in succession) that I'll never forget. As I recall, the series was tied 2-2 and the Nets jumped out to a huge lead on the Pacers home court. The Pacers staged a wild rally -- mainly due to a 3-point barrage by Billy Keller. However, the Nets looked like they would hold on for the upset. Rick Barry hit a couple of big hoops and then made a spectacular move to get past Roger Brown. He seemed to be cruising in for an easy left-handed layup. But Daniels came out of nowhere to reject the shot right into the hands of Freddie Lewis. Lewis then led the break and dished off to a hard-charging Daniels -- who dunked and was fouled. The momentum reverted to the Pacers and they won that crucial contest. If this sequence had occurred in the NBA Finals, you can be sure that we would have seen the film replayed as much as Willie Mays' catch in the '54 World Series."

Well, one thing's for certain...you arent getting to the basket on this team. Between Russell, Garnett, Reed, McGinness, and Daniels, every trip to the basket runs into a brick wall.

On offense, my team will run up and down the floor under the brilliant fluid direction of the great Bob Cousy. Bob Cousy was Steve Nash before Steve Nash was cool. So, I've got Cousy running the floor with super-athletic players all over the place. We have the shooters to stretch the floor , the catch & finish guys , the creators/passers, and the defenders.

Good luck against this squad.

I am so happy this guy is still there.

Gus "Honeycomb" Johnson, 13th all time in rebounds per game at 12.7.

6'6", 235 lbs, Bullets, Pacers, Suns

A lethal inside scorer and an exciting open-court performer, Johnson was among the most effective two-way players of his time. His moves around the basket were comparable to those of peers Elgin Baylor and Connie Hawkins then Julius Erving in later years. Yet as effective as Johnson was a post-up and mid-range threat, he was even more dominant as a physical defender and rebounder throughout his career. Indeed, he was one of the select few players who was quick enough to be paired against backcourt great Oscar Robertson yet strong enough to hold his own against the much taller Wilt Chamberlain in the middle.

Despite chronic knee problems, Johnson was a perennial All-Star. In his NBA career, Johnson averaged 17.4 points and 12.7 rebounds per game. He scored 25 points in 25 minutes in the 1965 All-Star Game.

Johnson experienced his best years with the Bullets from 1968-71, during which he received All-League consideration. As the team was more successful, he received more recognition for his stellar play. In the 1968-69 campaign, the Bullets turned in the best regular-season record but faded in the playoffs, largely because Johnson was sidelined because of an injury. After a third-place finish in 1970 to the eventual league champion New York, Johnson and the Bullets upset them in seven games then advanced to the NBA Finals in 1971. Injuries had decimated the team by then, however, and it lost to Lew Alcindor (later Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the Milwaukee Bucks in a four-game sweep.

Injuries banished Johnson to the bench in 1972, his last with the team. They limited his career to 10 seasons and no doubt prevented post-career honors such as Hall of Fame induction and inclusion on the NBA 50 Greatest Players Ever list.

Another testimonial to Gus:

How great was Gus Johnson? In the same article, the GM of the Lakers in the 60's said that "when we passed Gus Johnson in the first round, we blew two or three NBA championships." Gus was that good. While Gus played for the losing Bullets for most of his professional carreer which caused his fame to be not as great as it could have been, the admiration Gus received from his peers was almost incomparable.

As Missildine says, "as long as basketball is played, Gus Johnson's image will be lasting and bright...I hope the NBA Hall of Fame gets the message it should have gotten long ago."

Gus was considered by many to be the prototype of the modern NBA player. He was known for his showboating (he had a gold star in his front tooth) both on and off the court. He was one of the first to dunk and shattered three NBA backboards in his career. He had acrobatic moves and shots. Although his main thing was assists, rebounding and defense, he is often compared to Julius Erving, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. High praise? You bet, and not just from Missildine. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar called one of Gus Johnson's backboard shattering dunks "one of the greatest basketball plays ever."

Earl Monroe said, "Gus was ahead of his time, flying through the air for slam dunks, breaking backboards and throwing full-court passes behind his back. He was spectacular, but he also did the nitty gritty jobs, defense and rebounding. With all the guys in the Hall of Game, Gus deserves to be there already."

Current Bullets owner Abe Pollin said, "I first saw Gus on television...I had never seen a player dominate a game so. Gus was the Dr. J of his time and anyone that ever had the privilege to see him play will never forget what a great basketball player Gus Johson was." And from Butch Komives, "You've got to remember he was only 6-6. But he had the strength to play Wilt Chamberlain and the quickness to guard Oscar Robertson. No one played the Big O tougher. In my book, Gus was better than Elgin Baylor, Rick Barry or Dr. J. He did it all and never backed down from anyone."

And the best testimonial from Hoops Hype, they rated the 10 players after the NBA's all time 50 greatest, and Gus Johnson came up on the list:

Gus “Honeycomb” Johnson. One of the heroes of my youth, Gus was arguably the second best power forward, behind Jerry Lucas, for an eight-year stretch ending in 1971, despite standing but 6-6. Four times he was second-team All-NBA, and he’d have garnered more honors if not for a serious knee at age 32, a few months after his greatest season (1970-71). The NBA began it’s “All-Defensive” teams in 1969, and Gus made first team in 1970 and 1971. A dominant rebounder, he even outboarded his teammate and rebounder extraordinaire Wes Unseld in the 1970-71 season that saw the Baltimore Bullets compete in the Finals for the first time. (Alas, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson led the Bucks to a 4-0 sweep.) He was the Jim Brown of the NBA, combining strength, power, speed, quickness and leaping ability. A solid scorer and the greatest 6-6 shotblocker ever, he had the misfortune to play before the league recorded swats. He had a number of epic battles with Top 50 player and Hall of Famer Dave DeBusschere of the Knicks. He was also the first to shatter a backboard while dunking. Gus probably would have made the Top 50 if he hadn’t died so young, in 1987. He wasn’t around nine years later to remind people what a force he was. Let’s just say that if Gus had battled Charles Barkley when both were in their prime, it’s Barkley who would have been forced to cry, “You’re my daddy!”

I need a backup big man and this guy was pretty good until injuries caught up with him. He was a 20 pt and 10 rebound machine until knees went down the tube and finished with a 16 pt and 9 rebound.

Ludo selects Jay Cutler. Come on, he could get the NBA game in like, 6 months tops. And with his arm, he could rocket the ball down court to Nash!
