    Default The BATTLE for #1

    This is the first in what may or may not be a many-part series of threads. You must choose the Pacer (former or present) most worthy of the jersey # in the subject heading. This will of course be between those who have worn or are currently wearing a specific number.

    The idea is to pick who you consider to be the best player AKA if they were all in their prime arguing over who gets this # (assume they all want it), you get to come in and so "look, ________ is clearly the best player, and he deserves to wear the # he wants above the rest of you". Or it can be a petty popularity contest. Your choice.

    Some of these (including this one) should be easy, but I suspect others not so much.

    I decided to just start at the "bottom" and work my way up. I'll probably do a few of these per day because I don't feel like spending months on this.

    Yes, at one point Roger wore #1 (just don't ask me win; I just found it in a media guide).

    This is a no-brainer for the great Freddie Lewis.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Both of you neglect the guy who's name IS IN THE RAFTERS? For shame.

    But I did say your reasons for choosing are your own... even if they're wrong.

    Yep, I voted for Freddie as well. When I saw Rajah's name, I was like "what the hell?"

    Well I voted Roger, but if it means that Freddie doesn't get a number then I'd change my vote to him since Brown still has 35 coming up.

    Presumably, it's pretty obvious who I voted for...

    Sorry, but this is a trav-sham-mockery.

    Presumably, if Roger wins this one, then he won't be included on the ballot for #35, since there is no point in voting him twice, right?

    Who will the remaining choices be for #35? #35 has been retired for a long, long time. And Freddie Lewis, one of the 12-15 best Pacers ever, gets passed over? (Or did Lewis also wear another number? I seem to remember a #20 but I could be confusing that with somebody else.)

    No, he will be on both. For example, Ron Artest will be on 15 and 23 (I'm not wasting time with #s only one person wore).

    McCloud, people often confuse them. Dude was the Pacers answer to Magic after all.

    OK - I'm confused about the premise here. Are we voting on real numbers of like a rating? If it's real numbers then I would vote for Freddie and Roger would definitely be #35.

    If the players listed were arguing over who gets #1, I would have Rajah
    and Freddie do a coin toss over it.

    But, I chose to cast my vote for Bo Lamar for obvious reasons.

    Well if it makes you feel better, a script on that page locked up my IE.

    He's gonna have some competition at #14:

    Ricky Sobers
    Randy Wittman
    Sam Perkins
