Now that Jon H has transferred in and it appears that the roster is set - This is probably for older posters but here goes: My favorite player of all time: Kareem. While many argue Jordan as the greatest of all time I vote Kareem. His first 6 years at Milwaukee were incredible. A 35 / 17 guy. I would put it this way, if I had the 10 greatest players of all time to pick from for a "pick up" game, the young Kareem would be my first choice. In my opinion his sky hook was not only the most devastating offensive weapon that ever terrorized the league it was even more than that. No less an authority than Bill Russell called it the purest, most artistic movement in the history of NBA basketball and I still believe that holds true today. The sky hook unique and truly a thing of artistic beauty. Speaking of Bill Russell you old timers will remember that Bill and Keith Jackson called NBA games in the early 70's. Yes that Keith Jackson. They were great. Bill taught listeners that good offense was a result of good defense. He always preached that and I believed it. Favorite teams: 1972 Lakers (69-13) Wilt, West, Goodrich, Hairston, McMillan. OK yeah I was a Laker fan as a kid. Followed by Magics Lakers and Doc's 76's. Fastbreak basketball - different styles but the Lakers, Celtics and 76ers were so much fun to watch 'running" the ball.
