AND you have early onset Alzheimers.I learned something about myself going over this thread. I read the whole thing and twice I read a post and thought - he thinks just like me. Both times I looked at the poster and I was the poster. So right or wrong I think the same way consistently.
I remember him playing. He was serviceable. Was a dirt worker. I would have never guessed he went third overall. He wasn't actually a bad player. Obviously NOT a Julius Erving, or Paul Westphal.Picks by Suns - next three picks
1 - Deandre Ayton (2018) - M.Bagley, L.Doncic, J.Jackson
2 - Neal Walk (1969) - L.Allen, T.Driscoll, L.Cannon
2 - Armon Gilliam (1987) - D.Hopson, R.Williams, S.Pippen
4 - Corky Calhoun (1972) - F.Boyd, R.Lee, B.Stallworth
4 - John Shumate (1974) - B.Jones, S.Wedman, T.Henderson
4 - Alvan Adams (1975) - D.Dawkins, L.Hollins, R.Kelley
4 - Dragan Bender (2016) - K.Dunn, B.Hield, J.Murray
4 - Josh Jackson (2017) - D.Fox, J. Isaac, L. Markkanen
5 - Walter Davis (1977) - K. Carr, B.King, J.Sikma
5 - Alex Len (2013) - N.Noel, B.McLemore, K. Caldwell-Pope
Best Picks - Davis, Adams
Worst Picks - Jackson, Bender
I would have included Calhoun among the worst because Paul Westphal and Julius Erving went later in the round, but Erving had already signed with the ABA and Westphal was coming off a knee injury in college. Plus, Calhoun wasn't terrible like Bender and Jackson were. People will point to Giannis being selected after Len, but he was a late first round pick that nobody was considering at the top of the draft.
Wow. EK and BC posts on this thread. I wonder if those guys are still kickin'.
I have been posting on this board for 21 years. Hard to believe.
I stumbled across an Errntknght post recently and wondered "where has that guy been", and was sad to see his last few posts seemed to be a genuine 'see you on the other side'. Always seemed like a chill guy, hope he recovered and just moved beyond the silliness of internet debates.
BC, I hope he is still kickin, he said his eye sight was getting too bad to keep up with the internet, so hopefully he is in a nursing home, nagging his staff on end about Alvin Adams being too small and the Suns need to draft a real powerful big. I didn't agree with his grievances often but I never doubted that he was a die hard fan.
Man, those two will always be linked together in my mind. Suns fans who are over, say, 40 will remember the fiasco when Kidd, Rex Chapman and others went to Denver in blizzard conditions to try and keep “Dice” on the Suns roster. A few years of Kidd and McDyess would have been fun.#2 overall

Yup. And we were rumored to be a pippen destination as well. A kidd-Rex-pippen-mcdyess foursome would’ve been fun.Man, those two will always be linked together in my mind.
