how do i post a link?

J.O. ranked number 5. It's nice to have a player as good as J.O. He is clearly the best player in our NBA franchise history. We have never had a player that you could call top 5, or could finish third in MVP voting.

Yea thats great he is #5.And our soon to be MVP!!! ;) I just hope we can get Reg that ring this year.When Reg was in his prime I think he could have been at least in the top 10 though.

I don't know. Reggie was never, at any one time, the third best SG in the league. Due to his consistency/ longevity, you could argue that he was the second best SG of the 1990s. But at various times, Drexler, Dumars, Sprewell, and a couple other SGs, along with that ballhog from Chicago, were always better.

Did Reggie ever receive a single vote for MVP during his career?

I don't think Reggie ever recieved an MVP vote, he was just never in the elite crust of players like JO is today.

Am I right that only the Pacers, Kings, Rockets, and Pistons have 2 players in the top 20? Pretty good company.

I think those 4 Pistons are a little overrated. It's just that their chemistry is so good, it makes their players look good. Separately, no way.

I love how people talk about chemistry like its a BAD thing....:laugh:

So let me get this straight, the fact they're unselfish players means they're overrated?:rolleyes:

This isnt a list of the top 50 one-on-one players, or the top stat-padders. Its the top 50 PLAYERS.

Thats like saying the Pistons were overrated last year because they didnt have the most individual talent....

The Pistons were overrated; come on! They should have swept the Lakers. ;)

:laugh:

You know, the more I think about that, the more I think Carmello's selfish attitude would have really hurt team chemistry. I mean, this is a guy who REFUSES TO PLAY if he isn't getting his usual amount of shots.....

Can you IMAGINE the fit Mr. "I never sat on nobody's bench" might have thrown had he been forced to sit behind TAYSHAWN PRINCE? :laugh:

Addidtion by subtraction? Who knows.

I'm still holding out faith on Darko. JO looked like crap his first couple of seasons too.

That list is garbage along with all of Kahns lists.

Rip is the forth best SG but is the 30th best player, Ben is 7th best center, and tenth best player. Just shows These lists are not thought through.

One is a list of the best overall stats, the other is a list of the best BASKETBALL players.

Great stats dont always mean you're a great player.

Ben's the 7th best center?

I can't think of six centers I'd take before Ben Wallace.

I would take Ben on my team over any other center right now.

Shaq get's paid too much for the team to have any sort of payroll, and Ming just isn't that great yet, and I'm not certain he'll ever be as good as some say.
