No Chuck Nevitt?

I guess he might not qualify since he had a couple decent seasons, but I'm surprised Big Country Reeves isn't on the list.

My friend brought up last week the question about who the best American white basketball player was in the league. Sadly, running down the sparse list wasn't pretty. I think Dunleavy Jr. was the top. Maybe David Lee, or Mike Miller. Yikes.

When I read the thread title, my first thought was "Dennis Rodman's little buddy/nutsack rider has to be on there." And sure enough, he was.

I'll just add that Nevitt was awesome guarding the inbounds pass

Good one, he might be a leading candidate.

I don't give a rat's ass about the NBA, but please tell me that J.J. Redick is one of them.

and maybe Luke Walton.The Lakers could use a young Travis Knight right now. Plus, he's a fellow Storrs man, so leave him alone.:)

I kind of miss Shawn Bradley, there's some great stuff on Youtube of all the times he got dunked on, including a great one by Webber where Bradley get's the nuts in the face :lol:

They completely forgot Cherokee Parks, Chris Mihm, and Steve Stipanovich.

Luke Walton.
What?! But he's so gritty, hard working, and cerebral on the court!

What about Don MacLean?

Does Uwe Blab count? I remember he was the starting center for the Golden State Warriors at one point.

I agree 100000% with Jack Haley. The guy sucked as a ballplayer and was such a fucking biased homer as a basketball analyst. I'm glad he's no longer the "Lakers Analyst" on FSN West.

I like American Pie but other than that song i cant think of anything else he ever did.

Don Maclean actually was pretty decent when he was given playing time.

Very happy to see Jim McIlvaine on the list. I had the pleasure of watching his final days playing for the Nets. Horrible, horrible player. I remember the day the Nets cut him, and Rod Thorn was quoted as saying he had never seen a player with so little enthusiasm for the game of basketball.

I'm more surprised there's not more Jazz!

Please don't remind me. He's even worse as Al's broadcast partner on radio.

No one got dunked on like Sean Bradley, NO ONE. He had it down to a science. He knew exactly where the cameras were and how to position himself to get the best "poster shot". He always made sure to have that expression of confused bewilderment just as the ball was going through the hoop. The kid had a gift.

We loved Joe Wolf here in Orlando! As a Magic fan, I'd nominate Pat Garrity and Darko Milicec.

If it was two years ago I would have went with Hnrich. Or however its spelled. But he and the Bulls were bad last year.

Brian Scalabrine and Chris Dudley do not approve.

Steve Scheffler

From Wikipedia: In his College and NBA career he always wore No 55 and he was a 12th man and played in 178 games and (starting 8) and averaged 1.9 points in 5.3 minutes per game and shot 55.8% from the floor. Scheffler was a member of the Sonics when they reached the 1996 NBA Finals and played briefly in 4 of the 6 games with the home crowd at KeyArena going wild when he entered the court.

Scheffler played collegiately at Purdue University, where he concluded his career as the NCAA's all-time leader in career field goal percentage. He is one of three Purdue players to have been named Big Ten MVP (1990), Jim Rowinksi (1984) and Glenn Robinson (1994) being the others. He was embraced as a fan favorite in Seattle for his rare appearances and stellar efforts at scoring in late-game blowout situations.

The article is from May 2006, before Redick was drafted. Maybe he'll revisit it someday.

The worst NBA player I ever saw was Dalibor Bagaric. Couldn't shoot, rebound, defend, jump or move laterally.
