If you could play with any other 9, who would they be?

22 posts in this topic

You can pick whoever you want for whatever reason, here are my choices, in no particular order:

Steve Nash-shares the ball and pushes the tempo better than any other.

Kevin Garnett-leader, funny guy for his quotes and trash talk, always plays hardest and leads by example, tough

Shawn Marion-does what it takes to win, stat stuffer...would be fun to see him running with Nash again

Allen Iverson-pound for pound toughest guy out there. shares the rock, scores at will, funny to watch when he's out to show somebody up, his posse and ghetto 'street cred' attitude can be kind of funny to see

Magic Johnson-loves the game, fun to be around, shares the rock and gets flashy

Larry Bird-intense, won't let anyone beat him, guy that you want taking the last shot

Bob Lanier-stat stuffer, funny guy to talk to or be around, practical joker, always made his teammates better

David Robinson-just a machine to watch, great teammate and human being

Hakeem Olajuwon-just to watch the sweetness of all his moves, and the defense, the way I wish every 7 footer played

If I put this 9 plus me against your nine and you, even if you had LBJ and MJ, I think I would win on skillsets alone. I didn't give any really good reason for picking the team, I just think these guys would be the group that is the most fun to play with for a variety of reasons, with winning as a secondary function. Does that make any sense? There are just some guys that are fun to play with and some that are not.

Vlade Divac. His moves looked like carp and he was a smoker! He'd dive for a loose pack of Marlboros on the court.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
