Lets get off the Laker Bashing comments for now...

What Player do you think of when each NBA Team is mentioned... doesn't have to be the best player on the team, it can be a historical player, but what player is connected in your brain with each team??

Here is Mine:

Atlanta- Dominque Wilkens
Boston- Larry Bird
Chicago- Michael Jordan
Cleveland- Mark Price
Dallas- Hubert Davis
Denver- Dikembe Mutombo
Detroit- Grant Hill
Golden State- Chris Mullen
Houston- Hakeem
Indiana- Reggie Miller
LA Clippers- Pooh Richardson
LA Lakers- Magic Johnson
Memphis/Vancouver- Bibby
Miami- Tim Hardaway
Milwaulkee- Ray Allen
Minnesota- Kevin Garnett
New Jersey- Marbury
New Orleans/Charlotte- Larry Johnson
New York- John Starks
Orlando- Penny Hardaway
Philly- Allen Iverson
Phoenix- Charles Barkley
Portland- Clyde Drexler
Sacramento- Mitch Richmond
San Antoinio- David Robinson
Seattle- Shawn Kemp
Toronto- Marcus Camby
Utah- John Stockton
Washington- Gheorge Muerson

Don't ask me why some of these are my answers but that's just the first player that comes to my mind when each team is mentioned.
