Default Ask me about a player from the 80's and 90's

I'll give you my opinion on them as my most memorable accounts are from those eras.

Maybe stick to one player at a time please

He had a really great skillset before injury. He was tall but yet was really manueverable in the post. In fact as I can recall he played PF along side Akeem! He didn't have a great FG% but he mostly played 6-8 feet out and Hakeem played the middle. Most of what i saw from him was through his injured years. Like the modern day Yao (injurywise, not skillset). He was similar to Garnett but taller.

My Louisville guy!

He was just too short to play SG and really wasn't a great shooter. He did light up Jordan though!

Who said you had to disrespect them ?
I mean, I'd appreciate it if you could, but you could be nice to them too. Might even be funnier than ridiculing them.

Being from Philly I've had alot of exposure with this guy. Larry Bird is possibly the most skilled offensive player in the NBA all-time. You gotta factor in the lack of athleticism when talking about his offensive skillset. In my mind the greatest shooter of all-time. Not just a catch and shoot, he could create space for his 3's and was able to shoot with both hands! He had amazing court vision and he was an aggresive rebounder. His confidence and leadership was also top notch. He may have been the best player in the league during the 80's pre back injury other than Moses and his MVP years.

All-time I'd set him at fifth. Could be higher had he not injured his back which could have prolonged his career.

, too bad he was 6'3 and didn't have the handles of a point guard. Also that Jordan game was a two day event...its a cool story of getting u'r ass handed to you, then getting revenge


Following the game, Jordan claimed that Smith mocked him by saying, "Nice game, Mike." Jordan then supposedly promised people he would match Smith's 37 points in the first half of the two teams' next meeting, which was the very next day.

In the second game, this time at the Bullets' Capital Centre, Jordan almost followed through on his promise as he scored 36 points by halftime. He would finish with 47 and his Bulls cruised to a 126-101 victory.

Smith, the hero of the previous night's game, had just 15 points.

Jordan admitted years later that Smith never made the "nice game" comment. He made it all up. He apparently just needed more motivation to get Smith back for embarrassing him

I remember him to be a tenacious defender. He was wexpected to score coming out of UNLV but he quickly was utilized as a defensive specialist. I recall him being particularily good at offensive rebounding. It's where he accumilated most of his points. Wasn't a good shooter to play SG and too small for a SF. But he was a solid role player
