Who is your favorite player of all time to play on all the other teams? I realize the tedious task I am requesting, but I thought it might be fun to discuss. Here are mine with a brief line or two:

Charlotte Bobcats- I will get the hardest out of the way first. I guess it would be MKG. I like his game and expect big things.

Utah Jazz- A team I have always despised. But I must say...I do respect John Stockton. Might be dirty, but was an amazing player who was so good for so long. Same for Malone, but he is more of...well it's Karl Malone. You get it.

Lakers- Another hard one, but I cannot help but enjoy watching Magic play.

Celtics- Bird. He and Magic are equal in just how fun they were to watch.

Hornets- Mugsy. Little dude was so cool to me as a kid.

Hawks- Nique. I could watch his dunks over just about anyone else. Think he is slightly underrated as an overall player as well.

Bullets/Wizards- Arenas. Was the one guy besides MJ in my history of watching the team I really went out of my way to watch.

Sonics- They deserve their own spot. Kemp is the guy I hated growing up but still enjoyed the crazy stuff he did in his prime.

Mavs- Jason Kidd. Loved him as a young player and was glad to see him go back to his first team and win a ring.





Thunder- Harden. Even before he came to the rox, always loved him. A
lso my wifes favorite player.

Knicks- The Hoya Destroya! One of those guys I hated growing up, but learned to appreciate once he retired. Think Ewing is underrated today as well.

Spurs- Duncan. Just pure basketball
Warriors- Tim Hardaway.
Nets- Kidd again

Heat- Alonzo Mourning. All heart.

Cavs- Mark Price.

Sixers- Iverson

Suns- Barkley

Blazers- Drexler

Kings- Divac

Grizzlies- Battier

Pistons- Zeke

Nuggets- Mutombo

Bucks- Sidney Moncrief

Magic- Penny Hardaway

Clippers- Chris Paul

Pacers- Reggie Miller

Wolves- KG

Did you even read the entire thing let alone the first sentence. Not sure why you find that so hard.

Nope I didn't. My answer still stands, there aren't players on every single team I like or care to watch.

Crooner, you are already one of my favorite posters, but Carl Herrera put you over the top. Lol. I was watching the 94 finals recently with my wife, and realized how much I missed that guy! I was bummed he wasnt on the 2K games but Bullard was. He was such a warrior!!

Suns: Amaré pre-surgery

Spurs: Manu before old age (Leonard now)
Mavs: J.J. Barea for owning Lebron (epic David v. Goliath... not a "hater")

Grizzlies: Mike Miller
New Orleans Pelicans: Paul


Trailblazers: Martell Webster
Wolves: My Team
Thunder: Durant
Nuggets: Nene
Jazz: Derrick Favors


Raptors: Amir Johnson... I guess
