    Default 1980's players

    I was thinking about this; with the retirement of Reggie Miller, who was drafted in 87, are there any players left from the 1980's?

    Willis was drafted in 1984, I don't know if he's playing again. I know that Kemp was drafted in 1989, is he gonna make a try at playing this year?

    Cliff Robinson was drafted in 1989.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Vlade just retired. There's gotta be a few guys scattered in there.

    Is Rod Strickland done? I remember him playing in a few games for the Rockets last year.

    Kevin Willis played last year, and he was drafted in 1984!

    If he is still active this year, then he is the last of the 80's guys, I think.

    Clifford Robinson is playing tonight.

    Kevin Willis is still listed as an unsigned free agent, so we can probably consider him retired (finally!). Willis was drafted 3 years BEFORE Reggie & Cliffy 2 years AFTER Reggie.

    Goes to show you that few players last as long as Reg and fewer still that are guards.
