Default 1980s guards discussion

In 1982-83, Micheal Ray Richardson was asked to name the most "explosive" offensive guards in the league:

1. Gus Williams, Seattle
2. Magic Johnson, Los Angeles
3. George Gervin, San Antonio
4. World B. Free, Golden State

That same season, Lorenzo Romar, one of the fastest guards in the league, was asked to name the fastest guards he'd played against:

1. Rickey Green
2. Allen Leavell
3. Norm Nixon
4. Gus Williams
5. Billy McKinney

Hot Rod Hundley called Ricky the fastest of them all. He came and gave our league a clinic when I was a kid

Interestingly enough, Tim Duncan holds the record for most blocks in the playoff at 568

with an honorable mention of Kevin McHale at 281 (9th) and Robert Horry 225 (17th)
