who was your favorite player before the 2003 draft?

We're all big fans of lebron, carmello, wade, bosh, etc of the 2003 draft.

My favorite player in the whole league is wade. I idolize what he does on the court. if 100% healthy, he's just as dangerous and valuable as kobe or lebron.

If the 2003 draft has changed your mind about who your favorite player of all time is, then who was your favorite player before the 2003 draft?

although

although my first favorite team was sacramento with jason williams, which got me to really start watching the nba, i was a big fan of john stockton. but wade has made the game so enjoyable to me since 2003.

Kobe was and is my all time

Kobe was and is my all time favorite player. I'm not sure why you would automaticly assume that most people would have changed their minds on their all time favorite due to the 2003 draft.

Dhamp

Melo by way of Syracuse. Melo is possiby one of the top 10 basketball players of all-time. He can't be the best because back in the day freshmen couldn't play varsity. And because Kareem-Abdul Jabar won four titles. Maravick also put in work. Walton won alot also.

But in the modern era, Melo is the best player to ever hit a college campus. I'm rated the top player in the country, I'll attend Syracuse with three other freshmen, win a national title, go home and declare for the draft. lol

Dhamp....the greatest basketball mind in the world. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.

CHARLES BARKLEY

AKA the round mound of rebound is my favorite player of all time.. my current NBa favorite player is Thaddeus Young, but Barkley is my all time fave... IM a huge sixers fan, but i will say i did follow barkley with the suns / rockets and even considered them my 2nd / 3rd faves now cause of him... Anyone who is 6'4" and can out work dudes like that for boards, and play with his tenacity i love... I love hustlers. Reggie Evans is also a favorite, artest, charles oakley.. I love those work horses.

was Barkley really 6-4? I've

was Barkley really 6-4? I've heard that rumor throughout his career, but he was laways listed as 6-6 in the media guides and on his cards. Plus, he didn't really look that short down on the low box. I mean 6-4 is Oj Mayo's height right, they didn't look the same height at all.

Other then Kobe though, my

Other then Kobe though, my second all time favorite player was Nick Van Exel. He joined the Lakers as a second rounder who was not expected to do much. He was exciting and always wanted the big shot.

hes listed as 6'6" on his cards.. you are 100 % correct.. i met him once, hes really not that big.

Charles Barkley's height is 6 ft 4.75 in (195 cm)

US Basketball Star. In 1997 he said, "I'm 6-4 3/4 [6ft 6] just sounded good coming out of college". Someone pointed out his mugshot on SmokingGun: Charles Barkley Height Mark, another example of how mugshot angles can be deceiving and give a taller impression than in reality.

A salon article said about him: "What's so startling about the numbers is another number: his height of 6-foot-4....In 10th grade, pudgy and merely 5-foot-10, he failed to make his high school varsity squad...A 6-inch growth spurt his senior year led to a scholarship". Another article on Sports Illustrated said: "If they aren't smoked out at the pre-draft camp, padded heights get exposed at USA Basketball team trials. It was in the run-up to the 1992 Olympics that the world finally learned what the cognoscenti had long suspected -- that Charles Barkley was more like 6-4 5/8 than 6-6, and Magic Johnson closer to 6-7 than 6-9"

( i love how someone gave u a negative for u asking a ?).......... thats wack.

Pacers

Rare as it is, I am a Pacers fan and Jermaine O'neal and Reggie Miller were the shizz back in the day. Hate on Reggie all you want but dude would bust from anywhere and Jermaine, who the Pacers got from Portland for nothing was a beast. He would D up anyone and poke on everyone before his knees and back got to him.

Vince

My favourite player before the 2003 had to be Vince Carter. When he was on the Toronto Raptors, he was tearing up the league. So many spectacular dunks he's had in his career that just makes you go speechless.

Honourable mention for me was Jermaine O'neal. The man was a beast! Think Chris Bosh with Dwight Howard type strength and defense. WOW!

Before Howard my fave player

Before Howard my fave player in the league was prob Mourning. I was a center growing up and Zo's intimidating defense and intensity was contagious. Haha, I liked Mourning more than Shaq growing up and as a Magic fan my boys used to razz me hard for that. As soon as Shaq ditched Fla for Hollywood and Zo made his way to Miami I felt pretty vindicated.
