We saw the same game and thought the same thing. I heard the name Jason Kidd on the TV and thought to myself, holy shiat, is it his son?

Kurt Thomas is on the team, too.

The article puffs it up a bit, though, when it tries to make it sound like what Stackhouse is doing now is almost the same as what KG is doing now.

They don't mention Joe Smith, Theo Ratliff, and Antonio McDyess as well, both of whom played as recently as '10-11. McDyess played in 73 games and averaged 5 and 5 for the Spurs that year.

Also, '95 was the year of the Big 12 Dorky White Guy Center. Bryant Reeves, Loren Meyer, and Greg Ostertag in the first round? Amazing.

Best part of Kurt Thomas' career: He was the SWC player of the year as a senior.

/is only one day older than Grant Hill, though

Best part of the article was the poll: "Is Rasheed Wallace a Hall of Famer?"

Rasheed Wallace leads all NBA players ever in a statistic... that's a pretty strong HOF case.

/the statistic is technicals

Correction, he's third behind Barkley and Malone (Karl). He will probably surpass them, though- he only needs a few dozen more.

It's obviously not the same, but Stack has been a legitimate contributor for the Nets this year.

Also remember this was the era of hack a Shaquille; where a lot of teams wants centers for fouls. Also, didn't the other seven footer from Kansas with Ostertag have a decent career ? Lamb chop sideburns guy, name escapes me.

Also would like to add Steve Blake from 2003 draft is still playing.

/go terps... Thought Wilcox had to leave nba for a health condition.

The author of TFA seems to forget that Steve Nash was a part of the 1996 Draft. He was the 15th pick in the first round going to the Phoenix Suns

Sheed is a very entertaining player to watch.

Ignore my Steve Blake example.

That 2000 lottery draft really sucked.

the 15th pick isn't a lotto pick.

I hope the 2003 draft keeps Joe Dumars up at night. I wonder how many more championships the Pistons would have won had they drafted Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade, or Chris Bosh. Then again, would one of those guys disrupted the chemistry that the team had in '04 and '05 when they came withn one win of repeating?

My jaw dropped when I saw Kurt Thomas on the floor.

Kareem played until he was 42.
