Re: Best Player to Wear #7?

Pistol seems like the obvious choice, but I don't know. I think he had a very over-rated NBA career. He only wore #7 with the Jazz and he never once made the playoffs with that team. He might be a better choice for #44.

KJ had the longest run as a good player wearing #7, but he was never a superstar. Melo has only worn the number for a couple years but if we're talking about peak production he might actually be the best to wear it. JO and Roy were both great players as well. Tough one IMO.

fwiw he was a 3 time all star and was named to several all nba 2nd and 3rd team rosters (in the age of stockton and magic) - injuries were his problem

Re: Best Player to Wear #7?

I made a homer vote for one of my favorite players ever, the Croatian Sensation... the Waiter... Toni Kukoc.

Got to go with Pistol, because that 1976 season was huge for him

Melo yes, Tiny no. Tiny peaked as No. 1. He was a shell of himself at 7

Re: Best Player to Wear #7?

Personally I always thought that KJ was better than Stockton. I'd say he was one of the most underrated players of all time. Never saw Maravich except on film, but I don't really think that there's a lot of substance to him relative to other great player. I'd sure as hell take him in a game of H-O-R-S-E.

Never watched him play, but looking at his stats, they're tops when he changed from 10 to 1.
