Well someone has to be the "least" talented

But seriously, most of us I assume started watching NBA in the 80's....kinda hard to compare with those Boston,LA, Detroit and Chicago teams...those teams were epic!

It was Seattle and Washington in 78 and 79. They split championships. Both teams were underwhelming.

Dirk was elite.

Tyson is an above average center.

Jason Terry is a career bench player. (although a very good one)

JJ Barea is an overrated midget.

Jason Kidd was\is old as frick.

Marion was\is old as frick.

Definitely the least talented

Probably two HoF'ers there, although Kidd is past his prime. I thought they were better in 06 when they lost to the Heat.

The 94-95 Rockets were 47-35 and the 6th seed in the West. Their two best players were past their primes, granted both were HOFers.

I went with Seattle because one of their two best players (Dennis Johnson) was the 4th or 5th best Celtic during their run.

Hakeem wasn't past his prime. Hell, neither was Clyde, really.

Jason Terry is a career bench player


He's started 650 of the 1,100 games he's played. He didn't start coming off of the bench until he hit 31 and even then, he was playing starter's minutes up until this season.

quote:

JJ Barea is an overrated midget.


No

quote:

Jason Kidd was\is old as frick.


True, but doesn't change the fact that he averaged 8-8-4.5 as a 38 year old while still playing solid defense.

quote:

Marion was\is old as frick.


He was 32 dude. Calm down. He was still a top notch defender, above average rebounder and a decent offensive threat.

Definitely the least talented


No.
