Re: Best Player to Wear #15?

Anthony has had a nice career, but Greer and Monroe both have rings (though they played on more talented teams) while Anthony doesn't... it might not be fair, but that pretty much gives them a bump in class for me.

Has to be Greer. I don't really see an argument for Monroe or Heinsohn over him.

To be honest, I didn't even know who some of the players were when I voted. After going to basketball reference like the average revisionist, I refuse to acknowledge how the other options would've been better.

Re: Best Player to Wear #15?

you mean besides the fact that Greer has a ring, was named to the allstar team more times, had more 'all nba' team honors and is in the hall of fame?
