Default Official #28 NBA Player Of All Time According To ISH

IMPORTANT NOTICE
The last two selections; Scottie Pippen (26) and _____ _______ (27) got in with realy no reasoning or explanations from the posters to why they voted for that certain player.

We're not saying write an essay, but give a little reasoning or explanation why you voted for that player, another poster can see it and agree or counter it, making these threads so much more entertaing and insightful.







#27 - Clyde Drexler, or Clyde “the Glide” which his peers called him came into the league in 1983 and was an All-Star by the 1985-86 season. He could do it all, score, rebound, dish, steal and dunk. He took the Portland Trailblazers to the Finals in the early 1990’s but came up short both times. He was traded to Houston in Feb of 95 and was a major part in Houston’s second title in a row. He was named one of the 50th greatest players two seasons later and is one of only two players (Oscar and Havlicek) to score over 22,000 PTS, 6,000 rebounds and 6,000 assist.

PS. It sucks my favorite player “the Glide” got in without a vote from me.

Gary "The Glove" Payton. 6th all-time in assists. Tenacious D. 3rd in steals. Still able to step up and hit clutch shots in his twilight years during the championship run with the Heat. Plus his swagger is phenomenal! His trash talk is an art...

Easier to link than post them all :)

It was a toss up for me between GP and Ewing.

Gary Payton


I'll be ok with Reed going over him, but I don't want to see Frazier going over him. So I vote Payton

Let's go with "The Glove" here. Same reasons as everyone posted, ferocious defender, great trash talker.

Jason Kidd! A little bit better than Frazier and Payton and much better than Nash and Iverson.

I vote for Willis Reed again. If you want reasons, go look at the last few threads. Maybe I'll write something later. For now, just remember the moment before game 7 of the 1970 Finals where a hobbling Reed came out for warm ups to a roaring crowd and to inspire his team into becoming champions.

How was Kidd better than Payton? His advantage in passing/playmaking isn't even that great. Payton was a way better scorer and was a better defender as well.

Adrian Dantley

"Dantley finished his career with an average of 24.3 points per game. He scored his points with a mix of mid-range jump shots, high-percentage opportunities close to the basket, and frequent trips to the free throw line. For his career, he shot .540 from the floor -- 16th in NBA history -- and .818 from the charity stripe. He led the league in free throws six times and ranks sixth all-time in that category. He shares the record (with Wilt Chamberlain) for most free throws made in a regular-season NBA game with 28.

Dantley's uniform number (#4) was retired by Utah on April 11, 2007"

"23,177 points, ninth on the NBA career scoring list at time of retirement; a .540 field-goal percentage, one of the highest ever recorded by an NBA noncenter; and 30-plus points per game for four straight seasons. He was a smart, fundamentally sound player who relied on both strength and finesse."

http://www.nba.com/history/players/dantley_bio.html

Ewing, Nique, Payton, are also close...

:@ Steve Nash, his real career has only been..what? 4 seasons now?




I'll choose Gary Payton...


And I don't know why, but everytime Starks gets mad, I seem to laugh a little..
