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.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
