5ft 3in

Muggsy Bogues. Not saying he is one of the greatest but you have to be really good to play basketball at 5ft 3 in. Just imagine what he could have done if he was a foot taller

Oh, Kevin Johnson is a good

Oh, Kevin Johnson is a good one too cookie logic...Mayor of Sacramento...one of only 3 players to average 20.0 points and 10.0 assists in at least 3 consecutive seasons (Isiah Thomas and Oscar Robertson). He would be in the hall of fame with the new rules.

last 2 posts

I kept reading these posts and was like where is Bernard King and Earl Monroe. If Bernard King did not have that knee injury he would've played at least 5-6 more years maybe even more. The guy scored at will. Earl Monroe and Walt Clyde Frazier= Unstoppable. I think if they played today no back court could match up with them.

As for someone never mentioned anymore. I have to go with Mitch Richmond, prolific scorer. Michael Jordan had said before that Richmond was one of his toughest matchups.

Hardly get mentioned but were great players:

Maurice Lucas
Adrian Dantley
Bill Sharman
Ed Macauley
George McGinnis
Spencer Haywood
Calvin Murphy

Mitch Richmond as far as modern players go, Glen Rice as well (except for recent spousal abuse allegations and his son playing for G-Tech)

The Knicks with the pearl

The Knicks with the pearl and clyde in the backcourt were unstoppable. I forgot about JoJo White. He was a great scorer. Seems like James Worthey was overshadowed his entire college and pro basketball career, which is probably why people always forget about him.

I could list 20 players.

The reality is, once their playing days are over, many fade from the spotlight. A few will be offered television jobs because T.V. executives think they are charismatic and articulate (though this isn't always the case). Jalen Rose and Chris Webber are two of my favorite players, but they rarely insightful and sound intelligent.

The majority of players will have played their respective careers and move forward. It's sad because the NBA isn't always the dream life that many believe. Not every player get all of the groupies of fame; or make a sinificant fortune. Well, making $900,000 isn't that bad, but you get the point.

Conversely, some players don't want the limelight. Some players even like being away from cameras and paparrazzi and living simple lives such as Todd McCullogh, who travels the world to play arcade games. LOL!

Anyway, I miss hearing about Thompson, Robinson, Parrish, Olajuwon, etc. And for me, they don't even have to be stars.

Where's Manute Bol and Gheorghe Muresan!!!!!!

Olajuwan had some of the

Olajuwan had some of the deadliest post moves known to man and was a 2-time Champion. He hardly gets mentioned anymore but all post players should emulate his game.
