Default Anybody watching the old school games lately on Raps TV???

I watched the first ever Raps game and the one where they beat MJ and the bulls. I just noticed some interesting things...

Damon Stoudamire back than was a lot like Chris Paul now....super quick, decent shot, and throws "sicked, wicked, and nasty" (my tribute to chuck) open court passes. He had a very good crossover too....crossed up MJ a few times.

Doug Christie back than reminds me a lot of Anthony Parkar. He was their solid, reliable SG much like AP now. Similar type of player too.

Carlos Rogers looked like a bulky jamario moon....haha...the way he extends when he dunks.

Oliver Miller had some decent post moves.

The fade was SO IN back than .....they all had it!

I think they are showing the first ever game at the ACC tonight....you know what this means.....some classic VC playoff games are coming. Maybe watching him back than will fuel even more discussion about the ridiculous idea of bringing him back haha

Damon was projected to be a hallf of fame point guard. Everyone was saying he could be one of the greats. In his second season he averaged

20 PPG 9 AST and 4 Rebounds.

As you can tell, his career went down the drain fast.

His hype was just like Chris Pauls is now.

He is one of the main reasons I don't buy into all the hype until the players 4-5th season in the league.

Yeah Rod Black just about wet his pants during the end of that game. I saw a Vancouver/Toronto preseason game and it was some of the worst quarters of basketball I've ever seen.
