    White Chocolate

    I can't defend White Chocolate. I just liked watching him play - one of my favorite players.

    I can defend Walton. If he didn't get hurt, I don't think it would be close that he was the greatest...

    Petrovic

    As I recall, I didn't pay much attention to Drazen Petrovic. He had knocked around the league for a while. When he died, I was surprised at all of the accolades and it turns out that his last couple...

    I confess. I didn't go out of my way to watch Nash much. I saw him early, wasn't impressed, and assumed he was another Stockton and sort of dismissed him in my mind from then on. Sounds like I might...

    Old Timers

    Cousy was a great innovator and for decades if anyone made a great pass in schoolyards, everybody would say "whoa Cousy". You won't find that just by looking at his stats - what do you base your...

    Ok

    Maybe I'm a little hard on Nash.
    I tend to lump him with Stockton.
    I kept looking at him as the next John Stockton and left it at that.

    Doncic a Joke

    My top twenty is based on what I see and have seen.

    You can find all sorts of top 50, top 74, top 100 lists that robotically drone on about career stats, etc. That's their prerogative.

    Game Changer

    No one was happy with the Bell deal, except Maccagnan and Bell
    But we're stuck with him and might as well use him.

    Agreed

    What you say makes sense.

    Warford would be a big improvement over who they've got at guard right now. That would be a quality left side of the line in between Becton and McGovern.

    Big Year for Darnold

    No more excuses this year with Darnold.

    This is the year he must turn potential into production.
    High level production.
