    I thought the purpose of this thread was to compare Hakeem to Russell, not the 50s-60s to today. IT seems to me you're comparing stats, in which case Wilt would be the greatest player in history and n more »

    The debate about top centers is a tough one but I dont see anyone entering into the picture for top 3 other than Russ, Kareem & Wilt. We can "what if" things to death here as you point out Hakeems wea more »

    Lots of assumptions, something you cant count on. Also, players just dont get better just because they have another year of experience. I know it sounds logical but it just isnt always so. Will Rondo more »

    I'd have to agree with the sentiment that stats NEVER tell the complete story and many times are misleading. If you want to use the stats from the 50's & 60's, the poor shooting percentages etc, then more »

    For someone that will not waste any more energy discussing it, you sure made a lot more posts on the subject.

    I think Ray would fit in well with the Bulls... they really need some 3pt threats unless McDermott can step in and do what he did in college....big if Cleveland is a great destination although they al more »

    In response to dhs1950's comment: I hope that its not the 1950's and 1960's that's being referred to here. Great games to watch then. That is if you want to sit and watch 75 free throw attempts per ga more »

    Guys like Brady, Michael Jordan, even Larry Bird were very tough on their teammates... However, the distinction is respect. Those three got away with it because nobody worked harder or demanded more f more »

    The real question may be which of these players can we sign once we dump Rondo because it seems none of them want to play with him.

    Nice job on the list

    This has the feel of walking to the curb, picking up your unemptied garbage cans and bringing them back into the house. Why another PG that adds next to nothing, thought the idea was to get rid of the more »

    All kidding aside, its hard to tell what the real story is. How did Rondo get that reputation Dooling was talking about? I guess when you hear the rumors about Rondo, then watch his mannerisms on the more »

    Unless you were too young to see him, it strange more people dont list Cowens as a favorite to watch. Opinions vary and everyone has one..I get it. Just the guy was an animal and played with Birds int more »

    If Larry Bird played in the 50's-60's, instead of the 80's, he"d certainly be a superstar and all timer. However, fast forward to the 80's and how many experts would suggest Larry wouldnt be so good i more »
