Amare would be an interesting topic.

Carter a Raptor?
Hard call on Carter too. He's played for too many teams.

Should be Raptors but for some reason when I try to picture him right now, its in a Magic jersey, and that ain't right.

As for Amare, he'll be remembered for his time spent in Phoenix, no doubt about that.

I thought this could be kind of a cool way to reminisce over some of our older favoties.

Here's some names to throw around to get this started -

Shaq
Kevin Garnett
Tracy Mcgrady
Ray Allen
Steve Nash
Jason Kidd
Grant Hill
Dikembe Mutumbo

off the top of my head. I'm sure there's countless others that will be brought up throughout this thread, and even though he's not even close to being on the way out, why not -

LeBron

Have at it.
All Great Players

Shaq, overopinion of himself, and a liar. Most dominant player in the game for a number of years
KG, Obnoxious POS leader. Clutch player
T-Mac, couldn't make it out of the 1st rd
Ray Allen, Great, great shooter, big baby.
Nash, Great, great shooter and great, great passer. Sold out to the Lakers
Kidd, great passer, best court vision I've ever seen, unbelievably instinctive rebounder, Big ego that he doesn't like to show to the public, very big liar to the media
Grant Hill, humble, talented a whole lotta heart
Deke, shotblocking, rebounding cookie monster. Not really a winner.
Lebron could wind up being the greatest player ever, and he will always be remembered for 'The Decision'.

I actually completely agree with you, he'll go down as a bit of a hired gun who was the best three-point shooter to date. Especially assuming that he wins one or more championships in Miami before retiring. He did too much in Milwaukee and Seattle to just write those two places off, was never really a "core" guy emotionally to the C's(although he was as a talent), and he'll be a supporting character in Miami(albeit the best supporting guy). I don't think he really gets remembered as a member of any one franchise.

Hey way to further prove your intelligence there champ! See my post in the other thread if you'd like to become a bit more self-aware.

Also, way to advance the conversation with your initial post. But if it truly was humor you were after, yeah you really had this thread cracking up!

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

Mutombo's a tough one. In 10 years if someone throws out the name "Dikembe Mutombo", this will be the first image that will come to mind:


You could also argue his best years were in Atlanta and his one deep playoff run was in Philadelphia. Spent 4+ years in Houston too.

Carter's still a Raptor to me. I guess I could see the Nets though.

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

Shaq - One of the greatest centers ever
Garnett - A man who made it his mission to get a ring.
McGrady - COuld've been
Ray Allen - A dickhead, I don't think he is but he will be remember for that. Oh and a great 3 pointer
Steve Nash - The Assist Kid
Jason Kidd - Class and Style over the young energetic kids.
Grant Hill - Could've been
Dikembe Mutumbo - for doing this to any one he wanted to

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

Shaq - Lakers
Kevin Garnett - First thing that will come to mind will be Celtics because of the ring (and because of Celtics/Lakers), but nobody will forget him as a Timberwolf.
Tracy Mcgrady - Magic
Ray Allen - Seattle probably, but like others have said, I'll mostly remember him as being one of the best 3-point shooters I've ever seen.
Steve Nash - Suns
Jason Kidd - Nets
Grant Hill - Pistons
Dikembe Mutumbo - Hawks/76ers, but mostly as the finger waving, shot blocking defensive player of the year that he was.

Re: What will these guys be remembered as?

They'll be most remembered for where they won the most. That was an easy thread. Now on to how they'll be remembered.....


Kidd should be remembered for never learning how to shoot but somehow has the second most 3pters made and most 3ptrs taken among active players/all time.

Nash will be remembered as the best white point guard of all time. (no one likes stockton anyways)

KG is basically a very good pf but not in the top 5 so he's forgettable.

Shaq was a game changer. Top 3 centers of all time.

I've already forgotten about Mcgrady and Carter.
