Don't forget how Leon Powe going coast to coast reminded him of Dr. J in a dunk contest. I think Van Gundy had a slight coronary after that one.

And I must take Van Gundy's side in the Kevin McHale aspect of the discussion of best Celtic offensive players ever...Jackson was dismissing McHale like he was just an average player or something, Van Gundy certainly knew that McHale was pretty unstoppable in the post.

If they want to do comparison's of this year's Celts to yesteryear, a better comparison than Pierce to Bird would be Cassell to McHale, cause Danny Ainge once famously nicknamed McHale a "black hole", cause "once the ball goes into him, its not coming back out"...Cassell has very similar hun qualities. Difference is McHale twice shot over 60% FG for a season, and 55% for his career...SamIam...not so much.


2 to go.

i have much less of an issue with big's being black holes than with guards, 'cause they're usually taking much more high percentage shots.

mchale was a joy to watch... even though i mostly just saw the tail end and highlights. the up and under was a thing of beauty.

He used to call it the "torture chamber" when he got the ball down low and he knew the guy guarding him was toast (which was almost anybody trying to guard him one on one), Herman Munster with low post moves...he really was a joy to watch.

I hated McHale more than any other Celtic, but, yes, he was fun to watch operate down low. I think he and Hakeem are the two best big men I've seen with the ball in the paint.

McHale used to make so many moves in the paint. It was kinda funny at times.

Too bad he doesn't know how to make any moves in the front office.

I'm reading through every post in the Pacino Voice. This makes Interference 4x more exciting.

This thread belongs on U2 Heaven, btw.

So...after all this time, after all the ups and downs in this coaching search, it appears that John Paxson has settled on Vinny Del Negro to be the new head coach of the Chicago Bulls.

The guy has never coached a team ever. He's been the Suns assistant general manager.

So you're the one...everybody else hated Ainge it seemed

I loved watching Olajuwon, amazing skill level especially for a big man. I'd take Hakeem over any center I've ever seen play though granted I'm too young to have seen Russell or Kareem at his peak.

If he's been the Suns asst. GM, then he should know like half of the Bulls roster by now, right? At least Deng.
