I saw the 1994 Dream Team in action when the WCs were in Ontario, so I managed to see a good 6-7 in a matter of days. Is that cheating?

What's that make 21? (just because I'm a CPA doesn't mean I can count.)

Pretty much all of them that have played since the merger - I just don't remember if I saw the Big E in person so I didn't count him.

Do I get bonus points for seeing Adrian Dantley and Alex English when they played for the Pacers?


Hold on - something seems wrong with this list to me... Where's the Doctor?

I saw 17 of those greats play. I went to my first Pacer game in 1984 at 9 years old and they played the Lakers, who were my favorite team at the time. Lakers won it on the last possesion. That turned me into basketball freak for life. I've never had season tix, but my dad got tix from his boss all the time, so I got to see most of those guys who were playing from the late 80s onward.

Good thread, very interesting for us basketball goobs

Doc scored a little over 30k but around 11k of those were in the ABA.

I've seen 21 of them the same players you guys have listed. My dad has been going to 76ers games since the late 1960's hes seen all of them except Bob Pettit. He used to sit court side for the Wilt/Russell duels; I would give my left hand to be able to witness that live. :D

Hakeem Olajuwon
Dominique Wilkins
Alex English
Patrick Ewing
Reggie Miller
Charles Barkley
Robert Parish
Adrian Dantley
Clyde Drexler
Larry Bird
David Robinson
Mitch Richmond
Tom Chambers
Gary Payton

Total = 17 players.

I'm shocked that I've never seen Karl Malone, Stockton, or Shaq play. Out of all those players that I've seen, Alex English, Moses Malone, and Dominique Wilkens were the biggest thorn in the Pacers sides. They absolutely destroyed the Pacers when I saw them play and I saw them several times each.

After just completing Oscar's autobiography, I'd give up a body part to see Wilt/Russel, O v. Jerry West, or any early seventies game matching up the Bucks, Knicks or Lakers. There's a picture in Oscar's book of a Lakers/ Bucks game, and on this particular possession, Kareem, Wilt, Oscar, West and Elgin Baylor are all on one side of the court. The caption reads, "Five Hall of Famers share a corner of court."

5 if seeing Bird in college counts. Reggie, Richmond, Hakeem, and Robinson being the others.

On an unrelated note, I did get to see the wrestler "The Big Show" or whatever name he goes by now, play for Witchita State in college. He is the biggest person I have ever seen in real life.
