im a fan of the tiny guys cause i think to be that height and to play in the NBA requires a tremendous amount of skill... as a matter of fact I'd say guys like mugsey are the most skilled players to play basketball because of that reason...

Haha interesting. No Bosh? ^

Well, I kind of have a distinction of my "favourite" players. The guys I listed, I have a different kind of attachment to/respect for their games, and were big influences on the Raptors (for the most part) as I was learning to love the game. I love Bosh, and he probably comes in at #6 on my list, but I don't know, I felt particularily drawn to the my top 5 guys. Maybe this will explain it:

Hakeem- Amazing life story, fantastically dominant player on either end of the court. I read his autobiography when I was pretty young, so I guess I got attached to his story.

Oakley- I always respect players who play sports the tough, no-nonsense way. I am not a very "talented" athlete myself, and I mainly get by in basketball as like an undersized bruiser. I stick up for teammates and let my emotions get involved in my play, like Oakley.

JYD- Just such a huge persona that was playing here in TO just as I was becoming an NBA fan at a pretty young and impressionable age. His antics (high socks, toothy grin, funny interviews etc.) drew me in I guess. Another tenacious player that I admire.

Antonio Davis- Undersized, no-nonsense powerhouse.

Jose Calderon- I really like his traditional point guard type of game- distibuting and shooting. I was going to put John Stockton here, but i decided to show some home team loyalty.

Bosh, OTOH, is my favourite team's best player. He puts the team on his back, and I have a heck of a lot of respect for him. I just don't have quite the same umm...for lack of a better word "emotional" attachment to Bosh as I do these other guys.
