Best Player To Wear #2?

After receiving a PM of some players I forgot about who should at least be given a chance to be included for #2, I've decided to create this thread:

Moses Malone
Alex English
Mitch Richmond
Joe Johnson
Larry Johnson
Other (Specify)

Re: Best Player To Wear #2?

Moses Malone wore No. 2 for nine seasons, but at least half of that time he was past his prime. Malone wore No. 2 in his prime in his first stint with Philadelphia from '82-'86; when he came back to Philadelphia in 1993-94 he wore No. 2, but he was way past his prime. Malone was still an effective player his first two seasons in Atlanta in '88-'90, but he was past his prime. In his final year in Atlanta in '91 was the start of a massive decline. That's not even counting his final NBA season in San Antonio (1994-95).

Malone wore No. 24 for his run in Houston (when he won two MVP awards) and wore No. 4 in his two-year stint in Washington. To me, those years constitute the bulk of Malone's prime.

So with that, I'm going with fellow hall of famer Alex English, who wore the No. 2 during his prime as the top scorer in the '80s and was an eight-time all-star.

Re: Best Player To Wear #2?

If we are only counting the years the player wore the number in question, I suspect a lot of the voting would be different in these threads.

That was the point by the original poster -- you're only picking players based on the years they wore the number, not the totality of their careers.

I said this was how the voting would go in the first thread I created.

It just didn't seem to me that this is how people are voting.

Re: Best Player To Wear #2?

I'd say they've gotten it right so far. Seems like the voting is consistent with how I intended this thread to be.

In future threads, I'll list the years the players wore those numbers to avoid any confusion as to what I'm doing.
