That's just wrong......

BTW, I know that Bobhorry5 was considering taking that guy late, just to make a point. You stole his thunder Freak!

freak, i will take back one thing i said

i thought you were talking about Tony Parker (not Billups)....and i would put TJ on the court with that Spurs team and he would have shined just as well....Billups is on another level right now, so my bad

Yao is a chump... top 15 7 footers of all time, maybe, because there haven't been that many 7 footers that could actually play in this league....probably 10-12 that you could say were "great"....the rest were "good" or just plain jokes.....Yao disappears for stretches of games

your team isn't bad but compiling scoring machines isn't the point of this exercise...or at least i didn't think so....so trashing everyone else's picks is useless unless you are willing to take some heat yourself

Yao has gotten better every season. Last season he avg 25 ppg and started in the All-Star game. 3rd team All NBA in 06, last year 2nd team behind Amare, talk about soft on D. If would have been healthy he's first team no doubt. At 7-6 he is huge, hit's his free throws, has great touch. I don't understand the hate. I'll give you he doesn't take over games and isn't as aggressive as we'd all like to see him be, but he's a foriegn guy who didn't grow up banging 3 guys, getting hacked to score in a game of 21.

And, he's just my backup C, my starter is a Hall of Famer!

Again, I'm not "trashing EVERYONE'S" picks, just a few like that goon Laimbeer. My team has a ton of scorers yeah, but MVPS also. "Bird for 3!!!"

Ludo - I aint mad atcha dog!!! lmao, you gotta admit, that post was funny!

Personally, I have missed most of the comments because I have that guy on ignore.

But I think that we could have some really fun discussion about these players and what they bring to the table historically.

I agree, I'd just like to see it happen once we've completed this thing. That's going to be a great thread

In the meantime I'd love to get this thing wrapped up. By the time we're finished I'll be married and be on my honeymoon and won't get to bag on anyone's team

You have everyone on ignore because you are a yellow puke that can't take the heat after all the **** you talked after the mavs loss. Then you post a user note but don't have the balls to stand up to the garbage you talk you fairweather broncos fan. Go back to rooting for dallas you puke.

BOBBY JONES
Number 24 - Retired on November 7, 1986

One of the greatest defenders in NBA history, Bobby Jones played eight of his 10 NBA seasons for the 76ers. He was named to the NBA's All-Defensive first team eight consecutive seasons from 1977-84 and was a second team selection in 1985. In 1983, he captured the NBA Sixth Man Award and helped lead the Sixers to the NBA championship. Jones played in the NBA All-Star Game on four occasions, twice as a member of the Denver Nuggets (1977 and 1978) and twice as a member of the Sixers (1981 and 1982). Jones, who was a first round draft choice (15th overall) of the Houston Rockets in the 1974 NBA Draft, began his professional career as a member of the ABA's Denver Nuggets. He was a member of the ABA All-Rookie team in 1985, an ABA All-Star in 1976 and a member of the ABA's All-Defensive Team in both 1975 and 1976. As a 76er, he totaled 6,585 points and 2,942 rebounds. He currently ranks third on the 76ers' all-time blocked shots list and owns the fourth best career field goal percentage in franchise history.

World B. Free (born Lloyd B. Free on December 9, 1953 in Savannah, Georgia) is an American former professional basketball player who played in the NBA from 1975-1988. Free was known as the "Prince of Midair" as well as "All-World".
Free attended Canarsie High School in Brooklyn, New York before attending Guilford College in North Carolina. As a freshman he led Guilford's basketball team and helped the team win the NAIA National Championship and was named MVP of the NAIA Tournament.
He played for the San Diego Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers, Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers and Houston Rockets in the National Basketball Association. He got his name from his days in Brooklyn, where a friend nicknamed him "World" because of his 44-inch vertical leaps and 360-degree dunks. He was known for taking high-risk shots and playing flamboyantly.
For both the 1978-79 and 1979-80 campaigns, George Gervin and Free were number 1 and 2 in the league in scoring. Free averaged 20.3 points per game over 13 seasons in the NBA. His best season was 1980 with the Clippers, averaging 30.2 points per game, second-most in the league, as well as 4.2 assists per game and 3.5 rebounds per game in 68 games. He was an All-Star that season as well in 1980.
Free also played in the United States Basketball League (USBL) for the Miami Tropics. He was USBL Man of The Year in 1986 and the Miami Tropics won the championship. His USBL stint took place the summer before Free went to the Houston Rockets for the 1987-88 season, which was his last NBA season. For Free, the highlight of that season was November 12, 1987, when he scored 38 points against the Sacramento Kings at Arco Arena and brought the Rockets back to win the game.
In 1980, he had his first name legally changed to World.
Currently Free is community relations director for the Philadelphia 76ers or otherwise known as "Ambassador of Basketball," where, among other things, he greets fans at 76ers home games in his flamboyant/colorful wardrobe.
On November 30, 2005, World B. Free was honored as a Cleveland Cavaliers Legend at halftime of the Cavalier game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Dick Vitale uses his name in college basketball season previews to give the award for best name.
August 10, 2006, the Philadelphia 76ers announced World B. Free will assume additional duties as director of player development.

The Fighting Irish select KC Jones PG Boston Celtics and Chester "Chet the Jet" Walker F Philadelphia 76ers

KC Jones

K.C. Jones

Jones was a defensive standout with the fabled Celtics dynasty of the late 1950s and 1960s. Serving first as a reserve and then as the heir to Bob Cousy at point guard, Jones won championships in the first eight seasons of his nine-year career. He contributed mightily to the Celtics by running the offense, ball-hawking, and wallpapering himself to opposing teams' star guards. After retiring, Jones continued his winning ways as a coach with six teams, employing a low-key, laissez-faire approach that won seven division titles, five Eastern Conference titles and two championships.

Chester Walker

During his 13-year NBA career with the Sixers and the Chicago Bulls in the 1960s and 1970s, Walker amassed 18,831 points and earned seven All-Star Team selections. Only twice did his scoring average dip below 15 points per game -- a noteworthy achievement given that offensive opportunities in Philadelphia were rationed among future Hall of Famers Chamberlain, Greer and Billy Cunningham. And in Chicago they were shared with the formidable Bob Love.

“Chet the Jet” was among the best open-court forwards of his day. He particularly enjoyed drawing fouls and then taking his .796 free-throw form to the charity stripe. Walker played tenacious defense and proved remarkably durable. He never missed more than six games in any season, and he became one of the few players to appear in more than 1,000 games (1,032) for his career.

Walker’s teams made the playoffs every year, and he had identical career scoring averages of 18.2 points per game in both the regular season and the postseason. His impact was most evident in Chicago, where the Bulls reached the playoffs in each of Walker’s six seasons but not in the year before he arrived or the year after he left.

I need a center













2004-05: Rookie season

The 2004-05 NBA season was a successful campaign as Okafor coped well with the pressures of being the star rookie on an expansion franchise. Highlights of the season included recording 19 straight double-doubles from November 21 through January 1, and finishing seventh among Eastern Conference forwards in NBA All-Star Game fan balloting with 408,082 votes, by far the highest number garnered by any rookie in 2005. At the end of the season, Okafor beat out his friend and former college teammate and roommate, Chicago Bulls guard Ben Gordon, to win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award.[8]
On June 24, 2005, the Bobcats picked up the option for the fourth year on Okafor's contract, as he has quickly established himself as the face of the franchise, and a solid player for years to come. Okafor finished his rookie season with a on 44.7% field goal percentage and per-game averages of 15.1 points, 10.9 rebounds (ranked 4th in the league[9]), and 1.7 blocks.

[edit] 2005-06 season

In the offseason between his rookie and second years Okafor bulked up gaining 20 pounds going from 260 to 280 lbs. It is this weight gain which he feels caused him to have trouble rehabbing his early season ankle injury and forced him to sit out most of the 2005-06 season with injuries to his ankle.[10] Nonetheless in the few games he played he was effective as he averaged a double-double for the second consecutive season. For the season he finished with averages of 13.2 ppg on 41.5% shooting, 10.0 rpg., and 1.9 bpg.

[edit] 2006-07 season

Early into the 2006-07 season, Emeka Okafor has established himself as one of the best young centers in the NBA. During the offseason he continued his tutorials with Hakeem Olajuwon, which he took up after his rookie season,[10] and lost the 20 pounds which he had gained for his second season. Okafor feels this weight loss gives him more energy and mobilily. He currently leads the Bobcats in rebounds per game, blocks per game, and field goal percentage. He also had 8 blocks in one game this season against the Dallas Mavericks. Later he would record an NBA season high 10 blocks in one game against the New York Knicks.
