i was just wondering....... its just that I thought Grant Hill never really lived up to his expectations. being injured all the time and what not........ its just i'm not too familiar with the Pistons post Thomas/Dumars.

coaches are fine.......whoever you feel belongs there for your franchise. it could even be the GM if you want. and on that note, i'm gonna edit the one I posted for the Thunder and add Sam Presti the GM. The guy is a mastermind.

Not easy. You are still excluding the likes of Baylor, Wilt, Goodrich, Worthy, Shaq, Kobe, Riley, Jackson, etc. The Lakers have the hardest Mt. Rushmore to choose as they have had so many great players and coaches throughout the years.

Mitch Richmond
Chris Webber
Vlade Divac
Jason Williams

This is very difficult because you can't put Bibby and leave off Peja (or vice versa), yet those are guys who helped anchor the best team of the Sacramento era.

I included J-Will because I think he was instrumental to making the Kings cool again. That's part of the reason (if only a small part) that Webber stayed, which is the biggest thing that ever happened to the Kings.

I also considered Spud Webb, Lionel Simmons, Rick Adelman, Dough Christie, Olden Polynice (for obvious reasons) and Kevin Martin (though he hasn't done enough yet and will probably end up being a sign of futility like Mitch).

The one guy I would never, ever consider is Bonzi Wells. That guy just flat out pisses me off.
