Maybe he has Spoon confused with Sam Perkins?

All rookie second team (typical for end of the bench fodder?)

Great rebounder
Active defender who blocked shots
post up or penetrate
not a 3 point threat though, but at 6'7" 270 you want him in the middle

So you are saying he was an explosive finsher on the break (dunker), great rebounder (put back shots), post up or penetrate (bulldoze to score).

Exactally what I said. And All Rookie 2nd team? Big whoop. Didn't Khalid Reeves make an all rookie 2nd team? He's certainly not bench fodder.

K Reeves didnt play 15 seasons did he?

So what you are saying is you gotta shoot jumpers to be a scorer, and if you dont you arent? 18ppg twice and 15ppg twice isnt enough they have to fall through the hoop a certain way?

Spoon range didnt exceed 18 feet. He had a jumper, usually on the baseline squared up. He was more of a low post player. Get it down low, up and unders, incorporated a baby hook. He was good at baiting a player and being able to get his shot off downlow dispite his small size. He was a MONSTER on the glass because he boxed out well and had the will to get the board. Like most rebounders seem to have. But the label of mr nice guy, it seemed he bought into it because for some reason he started to play less aggressive and nasty and more passive. Didnt box out, challenge shots, often caught out of position on defense.

His life outside of a Sixer (where he had 4 productive years and was a double double monster) he became a quality veteran role player off the bench. Came in and did the little things.

You dont remember crap very well because Spoon having a monster 3pt shot never existed idiot.

Scrapy scorer, makes some baskets from hustling.

Reevs didnt play 15 seasons, but you are talking about Weatherspoon as a rookie, and how 2nd team all rookie is a huge accomplishment.

To be a scorer you need go to moves. Shaq has his baby hook, and a variety of drop steps and spins. Even Ceballos and Jamison (two players renouned for never seeming to have plays set up for them) have some go to moves. Weatherspoon has nothing.

I'd like to hear you and GOBB give a description of his offensive moves.

I have seen him play. Just not with the 76ers that I can recall.

The best thing about this all is the fact that I am getting "roasted" for my lack of viewing history, but I'm quite happy not to spend 3 hours a day watching TV like most of you must have to be able to have any sort of analytical skills on NBA players. I'm glad I actually play basketbal land get to keep fit, instead of lying on the sofa eating doritos like you folk.

To be a scorer? He avg 18 twice.

He had up and unders, he was great at getting position downlow and had soft hands important to recieve the pass. He knew how to score downlow, finish. He could also step outside and hit the jumper. Wasnt consistent, money but he had it in his arsenal. You dont have 4yrs of avg over 15ppg and not have an offensive game. You dont have 4yrs of avg over 15ppg and not be known as a SCORER. You do know Spoon was a good defender as well right? Wait you never saw him play.

This is WHY i didnt feel the need for me to break down spoons game because you will sit there like the stubborn MULE, heeee hawww heee hawww that you are and ignore it. You dont care how anyone breakdowns spoon. Your retarded mind is made up on what he WAS even tho you admit you never saw him play at all. This is meaningless replying to you.

Nice job calling Salto in here to get himself embarrassed. Like old times.

Ced crashed his Escalade into a parked car driving drunk while watching a Sixers game from the early nineties on ESPN Classic just as Clarence Weatherspoon got his 6'10" defender off his feet with a nice up and under move on a pass from hersey hawkins finished with a soft touch off the glass and knocked down the FT to collect the three point play.

You said NONE OF THAT. Go back and REREAD the crap you wrote. You sat there and wrote about Spoon during his last 2yrs in the NBA then BASED everything you saw those 2yrs as Spoon's game. You didnt see Spoon in his prime. You saw Spoon on his way OUT. So dont go telling me Spoon had no offensive game idiot because he did.

I'm glad that you're in such good shape. Unfortunately, you still don't know anything about basketball. Oh, and I'm more likely to eat a Cheetos/SunChips combo than Doritos.

Didn't you put me on ignore?
