    benny anders made the mold of a hakim warrick, stromile swift etc..

    I think Anders could have been what Donovan Mitchell is today.

    A lot of people don’t realize Clyde wasn’t that great in college that’s why he wasn’t even a top 12 pick. The star of those teams was first Rob Williams and then it was like a combination of Clyde/Michael Young/Hakeem and no one really thought Clyde would be a NBA HOFer.

    Anders was supposed to take over for Clyde when he made the NBA but it never happened. Instead Rickie Winslow was the guy who took over that spot (that’s Justise Winslows dad, I’ve met him). And then he got into a lot of legal trouble and his career was over.

    He had so much raw athleticism. It’s a shame he never played in the NBA. We moved to LA 2 years after that and that’s when the Rockets became good (made the Finals when Hakeem was picked) but I don’t really associate myself as a true Rockets fan. I do watch their games though as I told Panda a few weeks ago but I always follow the Cougars.

    Made a profit. That is all you can ask. If Nerlens wouldn’t have been ruled out after lock, would have made more.

    Whoa how old are you? I thought you were young?

    Yea that was before I was born, but I know/read/watch a lot of basketball history. It’s the only sport I do that for, so I cannot tell you anything like about MLB in the 60s/70s (except the obvious stuff like Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, etc.) but basketball is my favorite sport.

    You guys are all older than me but I’m still probably on the slightly older side here.

    I sense that most of the people on this board are between 21 – 28 or so.

  • superstars92

    @NoLimits: That’s right, Jim Nantz was made famous by Phi Slamma Jamma. We might not know Jim Nantz if those Houston teams didn’t make all those runs.

    No I’m 42. I was a very young kid when I watched that Houston team. I might still be a kid at heart.

    @tmarhol: That’s pretty cool you have been watching basketball for a long time. Those Bucks teams with Moncreif were decent in the 80s right? Except no one ever talks about them, imagine if they broke through one of those years. Sidney Moncreif is one of the most underrated players in NBA history

    @NoLimits: Benny Anders story is one of literally luck (like DFS). If he just reached 1 inch further in the 82 Championship game on that near steal, he goes down in history as a hero, making the championship play, and he would most likely not get into trouble and make the NBA. 1 inch defined his whole life. It’s like DFS, some people’s careers are defined by like 1-2 catches/yards, 1 birdie, etc. between 1 Million and not in DFS.

    Bucks actually had about an 8 year run where they were like the third or fourth best team in the league year after year. That was the result of the Kareem trade to the Lakers. Ended up getting really good players with the picks they got, or flipping for others. Guys like Marques Johnson, Sidney Moncrief, Terry Cummings, Junior Bridgeman, Brian Winters, Alex English, etc. Just never good enough to get over the top.

    If you think about it sports is a lot of luck. That Ncaa championship game we would have won if (all of which involve luck)
    1 game wasn’t played in Alberqurque and was played anywhere else. The altitude made Guy Lewis sub out Hakeem to get oxygen. Hakeem had like around 20/20 that game but he easily goes for 30/30 if it wasn’t subbed out for oxygen
    2 Clyde got a BS fourth foul called on him in the first half when he was dragged to ground by Terry Gannon. That was a intentional/flagarant foul by Gannon and instead Drexler gets called for a foul
    3 Anders tips the ball just slightly differently on that last play and gets the breakaway steal and dunk to win the championship.

    All these involve some degree of luck. Like a few years ago when Michigan made the championship game they beat Houston earlier in the tournament when Jordan Poole hit this game winner that I’m sure he usually doesn’t hit.

    Luck defines a lot of sports not just DFS.

    Obama is not US born.

    Exactly. Even when MU won the championship, there was a game against North Carolina Charlotte. They had to do a full court length pass buzzer beater to advance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5u8JuNltiw

    I’ll I’m going to say is this; my parents were born in Mexico but I would never call Mexico my home country.

    Michelle and her freudian slip here, will make you think…
