He made 5 All-Star teams, Two All-NBA Teams (including a first) and 2 DPOYs. He had success in Miami going to the Conference Finals in 97 but coming up short to the rival Knicks a lot.

I don't believe in exact rankings at all, for I feel that they represent a simplistic, contrived, cheap, and fallacious form of analysis that reflects the sadly technocratic and mechanical manner of modern thought. The idea that one player should be "88" and another should necessarily be "89," as if everyone can or should be discretely separated in descending fashion, is ludicrous and represents nothing but bureaucracy and the artificial sway of information science.

While I do agree with this statement, I believe there is a lot more to this list than simply ranking players. It has been a real education for me to find out about great players of different eras. I think most ISH members are grown up enough to realize that lists like this are not worth much in the real world. And it has been a lot of fun reading the opinions expressed.

I Vote for Maurice Cheeks.

GEORGE McGINNIS

Starting his career in the ABA with Indiana, he helped them win a title his second year out wining playoff MVP and two years later was ABA MVP. He then joined the Philadelphia 76ers before the ABA folded and was named All-NBA 1st team for his work. The next season he was joined by his ABA rival Dr. J to form one of the best forward duos in the business as they went to the NBA Finals before losing. He joined high scoring Denver for 2 seasons and was back to All-Star form before finishing his career where he started it, in Indiana.

Players to consider Ben Wallace???? If that is so, I vote for Theo Ratliff...No seriously I vote for Mark Price...



Mark Price was an excellent point guard who made alot of teams regret not going after him in the first round when they let him slip to the second..Price, the Cavs greatest point guard of all-time, was known as one of the league's most consistent shooters. He finished his career with a 90.4% free throw shooting percentage, placing him as the league's all-time leader in this statistical area, and a 40% three-point field goal shooting percentage.

Shawn Kemp- One of the greatest player to ever wear the Sonics Uniform. I really missed this guy he is one of the most agile big men of all time that came directly out of HS.

Kemp's career peaked in 1995-96 NBA Season, when he led the Sonics to a franchise-record 64 wins and their first NBA Finals appearance since 1979.

His Seattle Supersonics, however, managed to push the heavily-favored Bulls to six games, which turns out to be one of the greatest match up for the Bulls in the NBA Finals.

NBA Career Stats

14.6 PPG, 8.4 RPG, 1.1 SPG, 1.2 BPG.

Playoffs Stats

17.3 PPG, 9.5 RPG, 1.1 SPG, 1.6 BPG.

I vote for Mel Daniels again.

GMAT was the poster who wrote that criticism of ranking players, by the way.
