    It’s between Dave, Zach Randolph, Greg Oden and Joel Anthony. I haven’t read the article but I’m sweating boys, who’s it gonna be??? I don’t know if I can take the suspense!

    David Robinson is the easiest of choices.

    As long as they put Timmeh number 1 for no.21 then all is good in Spurs world. Will be interesting where Manu and Tony end up for 20 & 9. Same with Gervin at 44, Kawhi has a shot at whatever number he wore for us. Who else we got? Does LaSharcus have many compe ors? Kudos to The Admiral, an easy choice for 50.

    Agreed. I'll be curious on a few of those. Some jersey numbers are rarely picked for whatever reason.

    6 should be Bill Russell or Dr. J; but ESPN gonna suck off Lebron per usual. Lots of greats have wore 33; but that should be Bird. Drexler will be 22. Kobe will get the nod for 8 or 24 (cheater). Parish will get 00. Wade got a chance at 3 I would think. Yea, Kawhi got a shot at 2. I can't even think of who ever wore 1 tbh. Those are some off the top of my head.

    Because in HS and College, they have to end 1-5 and often start at 10 and end in the 40's; so selection is limited and players often want their numbers still when they get to the pros.

    Moses Malone also wore #2 and had a much better career than the Spurs former #2.

    Ooh Penny, good call. I think he'll get number one. Just bringing up his name makes me want to buy some of the shoes he used to wear. He used to have a really good shoe game back when he was in the NBA during his prime.

    How many MVPs did Moses Malone win? I knew he was good, but I didn't know he won multiple MVPs? I have heard of him winning one, did know he won more than one.

    Moses Malone was a BMF. Not just a good player, a BMF. He played a few years longer than he should have at the tail end of his career, but even with those seasons, he still averaged over 20 PTS and 12 or 13 RB per game for his career. When he was in his prime? He was putting up +/- 25 points a game, leading the league in rebounds, and getting sent to the FT line 10+ times a game. And that last bit wasn't because he couldn't hit FT's - he was a damn good FT shooter for a big man. Honestly, if Timmy had been able to shoot FT's as good as Malone, he would have been even more of a terror than he was. (Tim made about 5,900 FT's in his career. Malone made 9,000.) When you can knock down FT's consistently, and they still send you to the line, it's because they can't stop you any other way.

    Did I mention that he was a BMF?

    He played in SA a few games his last year. He was beyond done. I think Philly signed him after that just so he could retire a Sixer, but I don't know if he ever took the floor for them.


    I had to go look this up: in '83, the Sixers swept the Kareem/Magic Lakers in the Finals. Malone was FMVP. He put up 26 points, 18 boards, and 2 assists per game and just dominated the series.

    Darn, I forgot about T-Mac too. I'd give him number 1, but Penny would have had a real chance if it wasn't for his injuries. He had a shorter prime than T-Mac.

    Thanks for the info about Moses Malone. I didn't know he was such a beast. I'll have to look him up when I have some time.
