Larry Nance-Was skinny by

Larry Nance-Was skinny by todays standards but had all the strength needed to play in the NBA during his time. Relied on athletisism and good but not great skill so he's Amare Stoudimire.

Robert Parish- Was never one of the top 2 centers in the league in any season he played (but did win the most). A true Center that was more defensive minded then offense minded so he's Joakim Noah.

LaPhonso Ellis-Career averaged of 12 and 6 because of many injury plaugued seasons. Averaged over 15 pts and 8 rebounds in 4 different non injured seasons. So he is a great player whose career was hampered by injuries so he's Jermaine O'Neil.

Jon Crotty- Undrafted, played for 7 teams in his 11 yr career. Averaged a career high 7 pts in one season lol. Crotty was a true journey man so he's Damon Jones (who signed ten 1 yr conracts in a row). If he's not still in the league than Patty Mills.

Dwayne Schnitzius- 7 ft first rounder whos career averages are a whooping 2 pts and 2 rebs. So he is...anyone the SuperSonics drafted from 2004-2006.

Hubert Davis-Averaged about 10 pts in 6 of his 12 seasons. Averaged no more than 3 assists in any season. So he was an average scorer and a below average passer so he is Jerryd Bayless (whos career averages are on a scarily similiar path if you look em up)

Bison Dele-Strong big man who had a slow start to his career and was able to build himself into a double digit scorer near the end of his career so he's Gortat.

Jeff McInnis- 13 seasons in the NBA. In 6 seasons he averaged double digits and in the other seasons averaged closer to 5 pts. A hit or miss PG throughout his career so he's Mo Williams (even though he has higher career scoring averages)

You guys are heavily

You guys are heavily underrating Robert Parish. From 1979-1983 he averaged 23 points and close to 13 rebounds and almost 3 blocks per 36 minutes. He was a consistent performer his entire career becoming a starter at the age of 24 and keeping it until he was 41. He was a consistent 15-20 ppg scorer as a 3rd option on Boston and a 10+ rpg guy. Hes much better than Noah and especially Haywood.
