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

The Lakers could use a young Travis Knight right now. Plus, he's a fellow Storrs man, so leave him alone.

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.

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