    1st thing that came to mind is when players mention a guy we don't think very highly of being the toughest to guard or on one of their lists as the best. In all honesty, who here actually knows who tf Toney is? Probably just a handful who are either old enough or historians that watch old games. I always keep.in mind that especially in the old league, role matters and were pretty rigid. If it wasn't your role to shoot a bunch, you didn't get the touches. So there could be more talent in limited roles than what appears on the surface.

    Depends, is ISO scoring the only ability in basketball?

    Sometimes I think guys like Bron and MJ get less respect than they might from other players, because they got so many buckets that had the defense feeling like there was nothing they could have done to stop it. Some guys get more buckets through craftiness, so they might make the defender feel worse. Like, they could have stopped it had they not been baited into the wrong choice. Just watched a bunch of YouTube of Toney, great footwork and a quick+high release J. Definitely had to have some guys feeling down.

    If MJ's career was cut short by injury he probably would have been remembered as a slightly better version of Andrew Toney (due to MJ's defense obviously). There would be no goat debates. This site would have died long ago unless there were still delusional Kareem stans here. Skip Bayless might have a real job. Weird to think about.

    "To me, there wasn't much of a difference between the two when it came to the sheer ability to score. Michael has always come off more picks (until they moved him to point guard late in the 1988-89 season), whereas Andrew would just throw his guy off and go. Just when the 76ers really needed a basket is exactly when Andrew would get it," - Larry Bird

    I think Charles Barkley is on record saying that Toney is the best player he ever played with. Which is big call for a guy who played with Moses and Dr J.

    Toney only had like 4 good seasons though, before injury ended his career.
