kukuc, mchale, cooper, schrempf and Manu just off the top of my head. i would even add rodman to that list because he was a beast off the bench

Jamal "I can dance and prance but can't do anything else" Crawford?? Robert "7 ppg" Horry?? Aaron McSucks?? Donyell "potbelly" Marshell????

I know you're young and all, but you gotta know your basketball before making threads like this. The answer is easily John Havlicek. I wasn't even alive to witness him, but I know this. Hondo is the holy grail of bench players. He also had great legs

Add in Sam Jones as the 4th and we are golden

I mean, I love Rodman and all, but if you just look at his time as a 6th man, while REALLY impressive, just wasnt as long as these guys

Do you honestly think he has a case against the likes of McHale and Hondo?

I mean if it's clear a guy was good but not in the clear top 3-4 for the title of BEST OF ALL TIME, why should he really get mention?
It's not a slight against Terry, it's just acknowledging the better players

He didnt start his first game until after Sharman retired, and even then he was pretty much a Manu style 6th man: sit on the bench most games, when the team really needs it or he is on a super roll he starts

I was saying if he mentions Crawford and McKie at least mention Terry whose better than both.

Well to be honest, that first post was just awful. Everyone's favorite Croatian Sensation has a better case than McKie

1st imo is Havlicek without a doubt..

Some others include Cunnigham, Jones, Cooper (He's extremely underrated), Walton, Ricky pierce ect...

Mychal Thompson was great off the bench for the Show Time Lake Show.

Manu is the first name that comes to mind, so much potential, so much talent, yet accepted and basked in the role that the coach gave him... McHale deserves a shoutout.

Walton, not even close.

'76-'77: averaged 18 pts, 14 rebs, 4 assists and 3 blks off the bench
'77-'78: averaged 19 pts, 13 rebs, 5 assists, and 2 blks off the bench

He may have not had the longevity and, like many great 6th men, played starter minutes during these years but those are ridiculous seasons

Also, just checked, Terry has also started more than half of his career games...

never was a havlicek guy although that's based on impressions and stats. mchale and manu are the top 2 pretty clearly, to me anyway. not even sure if you could consider horry a sixth man on a lot of his championship teams, just a timely role player.

Too bad you left off Hondo or this would have been the best post in the thread.

Since I've started watching basketball religiously around 99-00', I'd say Bobby Jackson was the best i've seen.

Call me weird, but I think John Starks was ****ing dominant at times off the bench. Bobby Jackson could change games instantly as well. Tony K on the Bulls was awesome, Cooper and Showtime of course.


But Aarom Mckie, Donyell ****ing Marshall lol?

Crawford

Manu in his prime is nearly as good as Wade, Kobe and those guys, yet he chose to come off the bench. He was absolutely ridiculous, able to destroy defenses by himself at times. Watch the tape.

So, definately Manu. In his prime, he was ridiculous...made a championship level Pistons D look silly in 2005. Even Kobe couldn't muster that in 2004.

This game proves my case: even with Tony Parker and Duncan benched, Manu nearly beat the Shaq-Kobe Lakers by himself. Some of the plays he makes are so incredibly difficult, yet he makes it look easy. Just a filthy game.

At one point the Lakers had to triple team him just to stop him.

Manu. At one point he was one of the best players (technically speaking...) in the world. 6th man of the spurs championship team. mvp world champs.

The flaw in your argument is that Havlicek and McHale both ended up with better careers than Manu. Youtube clips from one game won't change that.

I don't see how you can honestly count Magic. You shouldn't be eligible for this discussion unless at least a portion of your prime was spent coming off the bench. I also think you should have needed to be a primary backup for at least 2 seasons.

Auerbach invented it, and McHale and Ramsey are two of the best. Kukoc, Stackhouse, Manu, etc.

But John John holds the crown without any real argument, and I'd take McHale as the 2nd best.
