TOP STARTING 5 ALL-TIME from your HOME STATE!!!

Time to represent our HOME states!!! Looking for your all-time starting 5 from your home state.

RULES:

(1)Player must be originally from your state and played at least 1 year High School ball there. EXAMPLE-Kevin Garnett played his last 3 years of HS ball in Chicago but is from South Carolina originally and played there his freshmen year, thus he would be considered on the South Carolina team. Also, just going to your state to play college ball does NOT count. Player must originally be from your state.

(2)Player must have or currently does play in the NBA.

(3)Build your starting 5 any way you want. There is NO set position. I wanted to have a player from all 5 positions, but in my state I had NO good small forwards or shooting guards and too many centers, so I had to adjust accordingly.

Well here it is. My team is from CONNECTICUT. I'll go on record right now and say it's not very strong...lol...but it's all I had to work with.

1 more thing

With SHAQ...even though he was born in New Jersey...he didn't play any high school basketball there....all his HS ball was played in Texas. If he had just played 1 year of HS ball in New Jersey, then he could be considered for the New Jersey squad.....remember....even if they are born in a certain state, unless they play 1 year of HS ball there, there not eligible for that state.

James Worthy

note: I wish like hell I could put Dominique Wilkins, because his family is from NC, he was born in France because his father was in the military, but then they moved back home and his family is from the same area I am from...and lived just 20 min from me. The school I went to was not in the same conference as his school because their school was larger. (Washington Pam-Pack)

just missing my cut...

He grew up in Lawrence KS,

He played high school ball there. He was very much considered a hometown kid when he signed with KU.

Great guards, great back court depth. Some decent small forward role players (Askew and Henderson). One solid NBA center (starter), one lottery pick bust (Bedford), and Popeye Jones is the only real power forward who was a decent NBA player. Shawne Williams is more of a 3. Finch was a great college player and a great scorer but he never played in the NBA.

Minnesota's team is absolutely terrible. Therefore I'm only naming 3 players to the all state team

Kevin McHale

Joel Pryzbilla

Kris Humphries

This is seriously the best we've got. Maybe someday, Cole Aldrich will be on that list. But damn, the basketball talent is weak here. Lol
