pistol pete maravich
As long as i can remember being on this site, no one has ever brought up the pistol. im 17 years old, and the dude is one of my favorite players to watch! if you guys dont know much about him or his game go look at a few youtubes, you will be impressed! lets talk about pistol, and why i feel he doesnt get the recognition as being 1 of the greatest basketball players of all time! ITS CRAZY!
I bring him up a lot. I even have a Pistol Pete shirt.
I read Pistol's book, so I am going to say this. Pistol was before his time, and that's what made him great. Also, he lost his knees early in his career, so once he got to the NBA it wasn't the same as when he was in college. He averaged 44 points a game w/o the 3 point line one year in college. I don't think if Lebron went to college could even do that, or anyone. If someone averages 30 in college, I will be surprised.
he's my favorite player in the game....my friends all get pissed because I always beat them w/ the All 70's team that is sorry and they use the loaded 80's and 90's teams.....I just fire all day with him....he scored 74 of the 89 points in one game I played yesterday....
ohh, he didnt have his knees in the nba! i didnt know that! did he blow them out in college or somethingg? and sorry idonthavemoney, i must not have been on those days you posted about the pistol! :) hah easily one of my favorite players, sooo good! and i 100 percent agree know one will ever come near the numbers that pistol averaged in college (even w/ the 3 being added ;)
Should have been on here last year around draft time when every other topic was:
hah sorry fellas, never see his name brought up on these message boards! hes was a magician w/ the ball!! nasty, just nastyy.
oh, as a matter of fact - your right. i did forget he was brought up alot last year w/ the comparisons w/ rubio. which by the way is absurd. rubio cant dream of doing half the things pistol did!!
ballallday...you will learn that butidonthavemoney is what you would call a smartass
If Rubio ever becomes half the bad ass pistol was I will go to the Timberwolves home offices and give every member of their front office an apology card for all the bad things I said about them after the draft last year.....
hahah alright, ill just have to wait and see! but for now he seems alright! btw i see there are a few knicks fans on this site! thats good to see. ima die hard knicks fan, and always will be!
hahaha midwestscout! truu, it will never happen, so dont worry about those apology cards!
ballallday Pistol had a leg injury that made him retire 2 years later. He did work in the NBA, but was always on bad teams. He played along side Larry Bird his last season in the NBA.
damnn, i didnt know about his leg injury, but i did know he played for the celts his last season, pretty cool!
DanEboy you're mad funny, and where ever you're getting these pictures they crack me up.
This is wayyyy off topic but it is the funniest video I have ever seen. And a catchy song too!
I have no idea where that came from. I'm not lying about my Pistol Pete shirt! It has the old-school Jazz logo on it.
I also have a Stockton jersey, a Hornacek jersey, a Russell jersey, a Malone jersey, a DeShawn Stevenson jersey (from his Jazz days), two AK-47 jerseys and a D-Will jersey.
My ass my be smart, but me noggin' is an honest engine.
butidonthavemoney didn't you also buy a customized John Bryant Utah Jazz jersey as well?? Or am I just thinking crazy.
I mean if you're tall you're bound to get dunked on. Though the guy that did nothing but pass the ball is a dumb, Yao gave him what he deserved.
until the words Greg Ostertag and Mark Eaton come out of your mouth you're speakin Greek to me.....
and Yao looked like Sloth from the Goonies in that video....
There has to be more of that video somewhere....Yao flung that dude like a rag doll
what happened to his son that was playing at LSU a few years back? i remember a report saying trying to live up to his dad damn near drove him crazy
My mom never liked Ostertag so she wouldn't buy me one of his jerseys (not that I wanted one anyway).
I ordered a John Bryant jersey from a shady site a couple of months ago, but all they sent me was a pair of tightie-whities with John Bryant's face on the front. It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't send me the kid's size.
