    Yeah, I like Iverson. I guess I was just trying to make the point that I don't really like the current crop of NBA players that much or the league for that matter. Still love the Pistons though.

    After picking my favs, I went back to the list and picked my starting five of the favs I'd most like to see play together for nothing more than my off season entertainment and curiousity. In my fantasy, the Aurora Dawns play a 4 out of 7 tournament with the Pistons and the Suns starting five. YMCA pick-up style basketball. No referees. :thumb: :couch2: :pop2: :popcorn: :pizza: :whoo:

    Such are the meanderings of this fan's mind in the slow season. :bored:

    Thank God for the upcoming draft. Dee Brown from Illinois at #60. :fingerscr

    Good roster, but I'd bench Shaq in favor of Howard OR Brand...FAR more basketball entertainment value, without the hype.
