2nd Best NBA Career
« on: January 13, 2019, 07:33:23 PM »
If we agree that Dwyane Wade has had the best NBA career of a MU player, who is #2?

Jimmy?
Maurice Lucas?

Anyone else in sight?

Doc.
Jimmy Butler and Jae Crowder are in the conversation.

Jimmy Chones was pretty good, but I'd go with Lucas

Kojis, Whitehead and McCaskill deserve discussion.

Good call on Jerome being in the discussion (although not a winner).  Longevity alone, as I think he was around over 10 years in the NBA.

This might help, list of 38 players.  One key is how many games someone played.  If you're good, you keep playing and get contracts.

Wade, Lucas, Kojis, Matthews, Rivers, Whitehead pretty much head and shoulders above the other guys for now.

Jimmy has made multiple all star teams .......he doesn't have the longevity yet but he is defintely ahead of Whitehead, Chones and most of those other guys for me.

Wade


Doc
Lucas
Butler

Other guys

Kojis made two NBA All Star teams along side some pretty good players. I saw him play several times in the NBA and he was  a very athletic player.

For example in 69 the western team was:
Elgin Baylor, LAL   
Wilt Chamberlain, LAL   
Jeff Mullins, SFW   
Lenny Wilkens, SEA   
Joe Caldwell, ATL   
Elvin Hayes, SDR   
Lou Hudson, ATL   
Rudy LaRusso, SFW   
Jerry Sloan, CHI   
Don Kojis, SDR   
Dick Van Arsdale, PHO   
Gail Goodrich, PHO   
Jerry West, LAL
What is The Jeopardy Question for this answer?

Lucas
Doc
Chones
Wes
etc.

Of course in terms of earnings per point scored, I'm sure Mac is the leader.

I think All Star games is best measurement. 

Lucas had 4
Jimmy is at 4 & counting

Is anyone else close?

What about players that played in a few all star games but had short careers, vs those that kept on playing for more than a decade?  I guess it depends how you define your original question on NBA career.

How many players play in multiple ASGs and have short careers?

I think Jimmy will ultimately end up with the second best pro career but will end with 0 rings.

No love for Chris Crawford.

This is a fun thread. Thanks for starting it, Lens.

Those of us who saw Lucas in the NBA know that he was one bad dude, and nobody wanted to mess with him. To have all the talent he had, and also to be both feared and respected by so many, that says a lot about him. Very important piece of a championship team, as well.

Butler belongs in the conversation for all he has done so far. Already passed Wes IMHO.

Rivers was a very steady, smart, tough pro, but unlike Lucas he wasn't an "NBA great." Jimmy already has had more seasons as an elite player than Glenn. Kojis was before my time; he certainly has a good resume.

I think Lucas is a pretty easy call here. I go with Jimmy next, but can see why others might pick Rivers or maybe Kojis.

I was thinking more along the lines of Chones, but Chones never made an all-star game.  I thought he had. 

Kojis is one that is greatly underappreciated in my opinion.

Luke was a bad, bad man who nobody would mess with.

JFB, Doc and Chones in the mix.

One other player who deserves a mention for longevity – certainly not at the level of other players mentioned in the thread – is Tony Smith. Not tremendous stats, but a 10 year NBA career.

Luke to this point. Butler might pass him up. Chones would currently be number two, followed by Doc. I think Butler passes those two and will fall short of Luke.
