    Anthony Davis plays more of a 5 position. Durant is a 3. LeBron is just a freak, he legitimately plays 1-4.

    Like i said he just needs to be in a san Antonio type system where they play alot of Boris Diaw and Matt Bonner who are neither big or athletic. Heck shawn long is more athletic than them and he is a much better rebounder. He will play a stretch 4 position in the NBA, you guys need to stop looking at him playing the old school power forward, alot of teams now are using more of a stretch 4.

    REally? Orien Greene couldn't shoot a lick and turned the ball over a bunch. He was a second round pick.

    Payton would get drafted this year...probably late first round or early second.

    Jay, there is a big difference between the late first round or early second round. 1st round gets guaranteed contracts while 2nd rounders do not. 30th player drafted gets a guarantee while the 31st does not.

    Missed seeing Tim Thompson, Larry Simon by one year; Bill McHorris by two years and Ed McCauley by 7. BUT, I've been blessed to have seen all of our other 1,000 pointers in person. Any other old geezers?

    I remember talk about how to guard Bo M of UNO and the verdict was that you couldn't---Get off of him and he hits the 3---get on him and drop off quickly and he hits his jumper or runner---stay on him and you are toasted by a layup!!!! My s-in Law says he was one crazy guy having had teammates who were mutual friends!!!

    McCalleb was't a good three point shooter that I remember. He was 5'9 couldn't shoot the three and still averaged about 25ppg.

    You are both right, believe it or not.

    Just looked up his stats, he was not very good early in his career but finished his 5th season at UNO very good from 3 point range.

    2003-2004 .311 from 3 point land, while scoring 13.1 points per game
    2004-2005 .260 from 3 point land, while scoring 22.6 points per game
    2005-2006 .300 from 3 point land (only played 4 games), while scoring 19.0 points per game
    2006-2007 .333 from 3 point land, while scoring 25.0 points per game
    2007-2008 .405 from 3 point land, while scoring 23.2 points per game


    So you are right, he was not very good early, average at best, as a senior he had an incredible 3 point %, not only that but in his career overseas he is an average .329 shooter, including 2010 and 2011 when he shot .438 amd .526 respectively from 3 point land.

    Yeah. I guess I just remember him from early in his career when we played him in the SBC Finals. He was not a very capable 3 point shooter then, but I guess he improved.

    It's cool to see some of the articles about McCalebb and his play for Macedonia nowadays. He's a massive star there and plays for their national team. He's been profiled by a few big outlets

    Bo McCalleb would be one of the big ones of the modern era. And, Ryan Francis who committed to us and then signed with Tim Floyd at USC. He was subsequently murdered in Baton Rouge.

    Boomer, this is a great start to 2014 ... I totally understood your post! And can respond ... the LC kid was Edmund Lawrence, yes, very, very close to a 7 footer ... I played against him in high school; not very well I might add.

    And Edmund had a younger brother, Kenneth, who also was a good player, around 6'7", also to Ryan Street High (I believe).

    Johnny Collins instead of Joe Dumars. That would be a Paschal signee, IIRC.
