    Surprise no mention of Josh Howard. Was an All Star in 2006-07, then basically out of the league just a few years later. Significant in the fact that it was only his fourth season, first all star game, and only 26. As someone who actually watched and followed the team pretty regularly back then, even I can't remember what happened to him after the 08-09 season

    I thought Jamal Mashburn would be a killer as a pro.
    Javaris Crittenton too

    Not exactly a great player but TJ Warren turned into prime Jordan in the bubble and was never heard from again after that

    Injuries derailed his career.

    Roy Tarpley
    Ralph Sampson

    Those 80s Mavs and Rockets teams were the only legit threats to the Showtime Lakers in the WC but that didn't last long

    Tarpley had a second chance when he came back , I think it was in the mid 90s and he actually played well but he blew it, another ban

    yeah he was something

    Speaking of him, last year I posted a tweet making fun of the Lakers and the actor who played him in Winning Time liked it for some reason

    He was super open with his wife and she didn't give a if he banged other women, but he went and told her Kareem, Cooper, and Worthy had side es and their wives were friends with Landsberger's wife so she told them. Got him basically kicked off the team after the 83 Finals.

    Tyreke Evans averaged 20-5-5 his rookie year and looked like a sure thing.

    Amare Stoudemire fell off the map after 2011.

    Every once in a while I notice Blake Griffin is still playing and it blows my mind.

    - Yep, forgot about him

    - Dejuan Wagner also looked promising his rookie year then disappeared

    - Jamaal Tinsley had a decent rookie season, he even had a triple double that season

    But without him we'd still be hiding under the furniture. His gross failure(s) in '83 & '84 to the Celtics did not crush him as they'd crushed West, Baylor, me, et al. Instead of crawling away like the Celtics were bent on making him do///they knew he was "dangerous" and tried desperately to get him to fold like the other Lakers had---Magic instead did what Jimmy Dean's mighty song directed him to do...Over the summer of '84 he grabbed the jacks & timbers and started back down. After a 100-game grailed quest culminated on 9 June 1985 in Boston we'd broken thru. We've never looked back.

    He never threw it in their face, but he was no country preacher. That was hi-tech wet work. He knew.

    Exactly. Which is why he was never suspended by the league while the entire Houston backcourt and the Mavs got the treatment. Can’t make that up.

    You don't think '83 & '84 were catastrophic? If he taps out were done, done-done. I didn't think he had it in him to be the one to lead us from the darkness and into light forever more. The Celtics had put him on-the-spot to be destroyed. They knew he COULD be the one, but if they stomped the life out of him they'd be able to rule the NBA another 5-10 years and effectively end us and him for good.

    The story he tells about (it) is bull . What he had to do---what he did is buried deep in his heart and soul and he will not share. That's fine. I was withered after '84. He brought me back to the fore and I ain't never forgettin' that. Ever. It's my religion.
