I'm sick and tired of thinking and arguing about Joe-D and his moves. I need to find a happy place. STARTING LINEUP: C: Neon Boudeaux (Blue Chips) ...He Had It ALL. He was like Shaq - with a brain, and without the attitude. Late-bloomer, kicked out of the Army for getting too tall (reminiscent of David Robinson). Completely raw. New to basketball. STILL GROWING. Went up against some NBA-ers in a Baton Rogue pick-up game and DOMINATED them. Had #1 pick written all over him. Shame the trouble he got into. PF: Saleh (The Air Up There) ...The next Hakeem Olajuwon. Great kid, too. Jimmy Dolan said it himself, a future top-5 NBA Pick. Another raw big man, but there are very few to speak of. Never hurts to have royalty in the locker room either. SF: Jesus Shuttlesworth (He Got Game) ...Goes without saying. LeBron James before there was LeBron James. Unlimited potential. Responsible young man, too. SG: Jimmy Chitwood (Hoosiers) ...Greatest clutch-shooter in fictional basketball history - - and that's really saying something. When the clock's ticking down, this Jerry West-clone was the man you were going to. (*Based on a real character, as everyone in Hoosiers was.. but, read into it, he qualifies as fictional) PG: Lewis Scott (Celtic Pride) ...Unlike the rest of these guys, this guy DID it. He carried a team to the NBA Finals. He transformed his game - - IN game seven. He won it all. BENCH: C: Nate Wilson (Eddie) ...Serious shortage of big men to pick from. But Nate Wilson (John Salley) had one hell of a transformation under coach Eddie. Good veteran leader who brings perspective and aching knees too. PF: Shep (Above the Rim) ...Probably playing a little out of position (a natural 3). But Shep was a legend. And he was always playing against six men. SF: Butch McCray (Blue Chips) ...Penny Hardaway-like point from the mean streets of Chicago's South Side. He had all the talent. With the plethora of guards on the roster though, he'd have to make use of his adequate size and play some wing. Great two-man game with Neon. SG: Kenny Tyler (The Sixth Man) ...If you never saw The Sixth Man, you should. Flew under the radar due to its ridiculous plot and it being a Disney movie and all. But I cried when I saw it. And I was in high school. Kenny Tyler might not have the talent of some who were cut, but his ghost brother was the real deal, and he's part of the package in non-championship games. PG: Kyle (Above the Rim) ...Again, there are perhaps better talents left off. But Kyle was tight with Tupac. And the guys need post-game parties. 11th: Sidney Deane (White Men Can't Jump) 12th: Billy Hoyle (White Men Can't Jump) ...Should never see the court in real games. But their one on one battles in practice, trash-talking from the bench and random hustles more than earn each a spot on the squad. STAFF/FRONT OFFICE: HC: Norman Dale (Hoosiers) ...There's just no question. The fictional GOAT. AC: Jimmy Dolan (The Air Up There) ...I feel he'd be the perfect successor to coach Dale. Just needs a little more seasoning. AC: Coach Kimball (Celtic Pride) ...Rivals Happy Gilmore's Shooter McGavin as the all-time greatest sports character period. He's gonna be on the bench. GM: Eddie (Eddie) ...Don't think she'd merit much respect on the bench. But she had an eye for talent. And no problem making the tough decisions. Owner: William 'Wild Bill' Burgess (Eddie) ...Mark Cuban, meet Jerry Jones. Wild Bill knew how to sell a product. CLOSE CALLS: Scott Howard (Teen Wolf) - - Too many off the court issues. Tony (Blue Chips) - - Shaving points is a serious crime. Jake Shuttlesworth (He Got Game) - - As is murder. Stacy Patton (Eddie) - - He drove the lane, and was at one time an NBA All-Star (the late Malik Sealy, if you don't recall). But I don't think he'd accept a bench role - - though he did make strides. Ricky Roe (Blue Chips) - - "Me" player. All the way. Pete Bell (Blue Chips) - - Bad temper. Cheater. Never really impressed me with his x's and o's. Shooter (Hoosiers) - - Knew the game well enough. Stepped in and got some big wins. But just completely unreliable.
