Re: Best Player to Wear #11?

I voted for Isiah Thomas. I can't believe Jamal Crawford was even listed.

Re: Best Player to Wear #11?

Another tough one, but I had to go with Elvin Hayes over McAdoo (Hayes played defense, and led the league in rebounding a couple of times even while Wilt and Bill Russell were playing, I believe), and over Thomas (who led the league in assists a couple of years, and also in turnovers a couple of other years, but who more importantly destroyed the CBA and the Knicks)

not while Russell played and only the season Wilt missed 70 games due to knee injury

that said McAdoo's MVP is a little like Malone's or Barkley's - he wasnt the best player in the league (but Kareem missed about 15 games and that opened the window) so I gotta go with Hayes too

True, Wilt was hurt that year. Thought I could sneak that one past

As for McAdoo, I can't ever think of him without hearing "McAdoo, McAdon't, McAwill, McAwon't" ...

Re: Best Player to Wear #11?

This number deserves a top 5:
  1. The Big E
  2. Isiah
  3. McAdoo
  4. Pitchin' Paul
  5. Yao
Hayes over Thomas is a pretty close one for me.

Re: Best Player to Wear #11?

I was going to ask the person who voted for Jamal Crawford to take his vote back and be serious... but then I realized it was drizzay... and it's just not worth it.

Re: Best Player to Wear #11?

Didn't see Hayes play. I'd probably go with Isiah, in spite of my dislike for the guy when he played and the fact that he is complete ass. I really think this would be Arvydas if he'd come over when he was healthy. Dude was an amazing player even when he had nothing left physically.

Couldn't agree more. Every time I go back and watch any film from the '88 Olympics, it reminds me of how ridiculous he was...
