Ive not heard anyone mention Calvin Natt in a longtime. I remember an old old NBA VHS I had that convered his rise from scrub to star. "Hard work" was his themesong. I liked him...

edit

And no birdsong isnt on there. Though I was about to mention him when I saw you had.

The 2nd guy looks familiar. Did he play for the Sonics?

And how about Jerome Kersey for a mention.

A 6-7 time all star 4 time all NbA first teamer and led his team to the finals where they played in the "Greatest game ever played". Im sure you know what I mean. But most here I figure only know of him as the **** talking coach of Barkleys suns who promised they would beat the Lakers in 93.

Perhaps the reason why he wasn't as remembered as you think is because you are embellishing his career?

He was a 6 time all star and he made all-nba team 3 times. (And one of the years he made the all-star game he averaged 12 points, 1 rebound, and 6 assists.

And let's face it... he had 13,000 points and averaged under 16 PPG for his career... exactly how should he be remembered?

I was off by an all star game and all nba team. Wasnt looking them up.

But 6 all star games and 3 time all NBA first teams and leading a team to the finals and game 7 of a conference finals is still pretty great. Its more then many many all time greats can say.

Shawn Kemp- anyone who is over 21 will remember him, but today's youth will not. He came into the league in 1989. I was 11 at the time. He was a ferocious dunker. Drugs got the best of him unfortunately, but he was one hell of a player. Kids 4-5 years ago admired Kenyon Martin, but the man had nothing on Shawn Kemp.

Kevin Johnson- he was the Suns PG before Jason Kidd. KJ averaged 18/9 over his career, which includes 4 10+ APG seasons while hitting 12.2 APG in 1988-89. His last decent season was 1996-97 where he averaged 20/9. KJ lost his starting job to Kidd because of nagging injuries and was forced to retire after the 1999-00 season after playing in only 6 games.

He isn't forgotten quite to the level of Dantley or Moncrief, but Moses Malone gets slept on as as all-time great way more than you would expect for a 3 time league MVP. Multiple All-NBA first teams, 3rd alltime rebounder, 5th alltime scorer, and you'll hear Patrick Ewings name come up more when people start ranking centers. A lot of time he'll just get let off the list totally. It's crazy. One of the most hyped high school players of all time, was the leader of one of the strongest teams on all time (those early 80's 76ers with him, Dr J, Andrew Toney, et al.), put up huge stats and consistently made his teams better.

I think a lot of it has to do with that he had possibly the least flashy game of all time. When people think of centers, a lot of the great ones have some image or style that endears them to fans and makes them easy to remember. Hakeem shaking and baking, Shaq throwing down on people, Kareem with the sky hook. Malone really doesn't have some defining move or career moment- just a sustained career of excellence. He was the absolute master of garbage buckets- offensive rebounds, putbacks, tipins. His post move basically was to run at the basket, toss something up, and go get it. Not nearly as aesthetically pleasing or memorable as the Dream Shake. But certainly just as effective. If you go back and dig up some old interviews with Bird or Magic and read just how much they respected Malone, you start to realize how criminally underappreciated he is today.

which players today will be forgotten tomorrow?

i will say any player who was never a solid contributor on a championship team or whoever has not won a season MVP or finals MVP will be forgotten.

players like Dennis Johnson, Michael Cooper, Byron Scott, ron harper were never considered great multiple allstar players in their era but are remembered because they played key roles on championship teams.

players like Isiah Thomas etc. are not in anyones top 10-15 list but they are still remembered because they were final MVPs or regular season MVPs.
