I feel like Marc Jackson should be higher as a PG.

Allan Houston was a SG I thought.

Wasn't Rodman more of a PF?

Not even top 10 for Shaq?

Just some quick comments... did you make this list or was it made by someone else?

SAVAGE CLAW

Its my list, Shaq belongs in the 00s list, where his rings are 00, 01, 02,06.

Houston and Spree used to swap positions all the time.

Rodman played Sf in Detroit and Sa, PF for Chicago.

Shaq's time is definetley the 90's... I dont care if he won the majority of his championships in the 00's. His prime was the 90's

No love for Rod Strickland? Arvydas Sabonis owns Elden Campbell. A.C. Green?

Most importantly... No Patrick Ewing???

SAVAGE CLAW
12-08-2008, 08:46 PM
Patrick Ewing?


In ! :D Thats what happens when you are taking so many names on account you go and make a gigantic mistake.

I was so bussy figuring out how to take in the most Knicks possible and i forgot THE Knick of the decade....

12-08-2008, 08:48 PM
Juwan Howard???? Detlef Schrempf?? Eddie Jones? Nick Anderson?

LOL!!!!!!!!! Just realized you said Sam Elliot!!!!! I think you meant Sean :P

12-08-2008, 08:51 PM
I considered Schrempf but he was not that great.

Jamal Mashburn has to be on the list. 19.1 ppg 5.4rbg 4.0apg 1.3spg for his career.

^I was never a fan of "Monster Mash-burn"

I love the song tough....

MooseWithFleas
12-08-2008, 09:03 PM
Still... mash is better then 3 of those SF's, Juwan Howard is better then 3 of those PF's

SAVAGE CLAW
12-08-2008, 09:13 PM
Well i guess that these last horrible......8? years by Juwan have taken a toll in my way of valuing him.

Note that i have left out a lot of people that had some good years but not a consistend career like:

Brandon,Rider, Gugliotta, Laettener, Owen, Mason.....

I guess if you're doing it that each player can only make one decade team that makes sense.

Houston was a SG, you can't convince me otherwise.

I'll take your word on Rodman.

Can't believe I didn't notice Ewing either.


not a terrible list though.

Chris Mullin ahead of Scottie Pippen???????

no way.

no way at all.

if you were a GM and had to start your team around Mullin or Pippen who do you take?

Pippen

Pippen is the better player

^Yeah because he was awesome with the Rockets and Blazers.....

Yuo sir are the one talking about the "bulk" of their careers and what not.

Dose Mullin have 6 rings?
Is Mullin a member of the 50 greatest?
Was Mullin one of the best defenders of all time?

DocUSN
12-09-2008, 01:27 AM
^Yeah because he was awesome with the Rockets and Blazers.....

and thats a piss poor argument by the way.

MJ didnt do anything with the wizards lets ignore the six rings and rank somone who never wona title in front of him!!! I know Reggie Miller!

SAVAGE CLAW
12-09-2008, 01:33 AM
Mullin was elected for the 50 players of all time.....

And a question..... Is Robert Horry better than Karl Malone?

Is Steve Kerr better than John Stockton?

Rings should not be a factor when you consider the QUALITY of players.

No and No

But Scottie Pippen is better then Chris Mullin.

No way Nick Van Excel had a bigger impact or was better then Mark Jackson. 2 all time in assist an winner thorugh out his career definately trumps "nick the quick" Sammy is also way to high and I'd take a Mookie Balock over Bugsy or Nick

See I cant even finish with your list in front of me its just to much info to go through quickly. It is alittle fun when your really bored though. I think you'd also have to move Allen Houston (he's a 2 gaurd) and Vinny Baker needs to be somewhere. Shaq and Kidd should also be repersented even though they might have been better in the 2000s. Plus I love Buck Williams

To be fair the man was 32 and slipping, he was miscast in Houston though, similar to how Artest is right now.

First off, finally some love for Stockton! There has always been the Stockton/Payton debate and I would definately put Stockton ahead of him. SAVAGE CLAW I really do like the way you made this list because it does give the 90's prime players the respect they deserve. I agree that Shaq belongs in the next decades list even though I love him in an Orlando uniform, but he had his dominace with the Lakers. I still think that Detlef Schrempf and Mashburn (I don't like him either) need to make the SF list (Hersey Hawkins, not a SF and not as good as either of these two, put Houston on the SG list and take off Mammuhd Abdul Rauff.)

I love seeing these names of greats that are seeming to be forgoten over time (ie Steve Smith, Mich Richmond, Jeff Hornaceck, Cedric Ceballos, Rik Smits) good for them to recognized. I still don't understand how Ronnie Seykaly made the list in a decade loaded with good centers. But very good list overall.

List is wack. 1st, Shaq has to be at least 3rd on the cener list, the 90s were his best years of his career. He was a 23ppg and 10rbg player every year in the 90s, these are his lowest averages of a year in the 90s. He had a career high 29ppg in 99, 3.5 bpg in 92, and 13.9 rpg in 93. second of all Reggie Miller would be the second best SG of the 90s. If it wasn't for Jordan and the Bulls Reggie would of brung some of them 6 championships to Indiana. If Jordan came out in 2000, they might of been saying he has a great shoot to be the next great SG behind Reggie Miller. 3rd, other than Stockton, and maybe Payton, there was not a beter PG than Mark Jackson. He is one of the greatest of all time, and some off the players ahead of him are not. And last but not least, how are you going to make a list of he greatest from the 90s and exclude people because you are not a fan of them, or because they fell off in the 2000s. Of course their going to fall off, because they been around all through the 90s, and were great, then they got old, and slowed down.

Rings should not be a factor when you consider the QUALITY of players.

No he most definitely wasn't.

Shaq should be no less than #3. I'd give Robinson and Hakeem the nod over him. Sabonis belongs on that list as well. And you can make a case for Duncan being top 10. Dude won ROY, led his team to a championship and made 2 All-NBA 1st teams. Grant Hill's higher than Majerle. I'd rank Pippen 1st. Not a bad list. Few ups and downs.

Glen Rice probably had the prettiest stroke I've even seen from a player...that guy could lite it up from deep.

Too bad he was too slow to guard the perimeter.
