15. Pat Patterson
14. Nazr Mohammed
13. Derek Anderson
12. Sam Bowie
11. Frank Ramsey
10. Rex Chapman
9. Tayshaun Prince
8. Anthony Davis
7. John Wall
6. Demarcus Cousins
5. Jamal Mashburn
4. Antoine Walker
3. Rajon Rondo
2. Cliff Hagan
1. Dan Issel

I would definitely put Big Dan Issel on top, and I have no real problem with Cliff Hagan being number two. They had long and stellar NBA careers.

But the rest I would order like this:

1. Anthony Davis
2. Rajon Rondo
3. Frank Ramsey
4. John Wall
5. Demarcus Cousins
6. Tayshaun Prince
7. Chuck Hayes
8. Louie Dampier
9. Karl Anthony Towns
10. Antoine Walker
11. Jamaal Mashburn
12. Rex Chapman
13. Devon Booker
14. Nazr Mohammed
15. Rick Robey
16. Willy Cauley-Stein
17. Michael Kidd-Douglas
18. Jamaal Magloire
19. Patrick Patterson
20. Melvin Turpin
21. Derrick Anderson
22. Walter McCarty
23. Ron Mercer
24. Mark Pope
25. Kyle Macy

Rondo has sure climbed the ladder of success and will go down as not only one of our best point guards but one our best players of all-time.

I don't see Kevin Grevey listed any where on either of those list.

Tip,

Who is Micheal Kidd-Douglass? LOL.

I think you are combining the Chris Douglass Roberts (Cal's Memphis 3 named player) with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
[Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Razz] That would be one heck of a player though and deserving of being higher on the list.

Wife's Mad. Told me we never talk anymore. And just last nite while watching super bowl told her 2 or 3 times to get me a coke and popcorn. Also told her not to forget to take out trash in the morning. Ain't that something. Also told me I was too indecisive. Can't figure out what to do about that. One nice thing I guess. She called me a pro crastinator. Don't know what a crastinator is but I guess I'm a good one for her to call me a pro. Gonna wait til tomorrow to look that up though. I love her but somrtimes can't help but thinking I should have told uncle Junior to keep his coon hound pup and stevens double barrel and also his youngest daughter.

Heh. My bad, Trey. You are right, that would be a monster player, in both senses of the word. [Smile]

Grevey averaged 11 points a game, 2.4 rebounds and averaged 43.7% from the field in his 10 year NBA career.

Not sure why somebody ranked Chuck Hayes high on the list. He would be at the back of the pack in my book. I was very surprised he stayed in the league as long as he did.

Tayshaun Prince is the one guy that I thought would never stay in, because he was so skinny. He ended up be a terrific pro player.

I thought Skal was a future star, even though he was a having a rough freshman season. He has had a few big games, this season. The young man just needed some confidence and muscle.

Nazr Mohammed was in terrible shape when he came to Kentucky. He was flabby as a freshman and ended up being a long time pro.

Past Kentucky coaches have missed out on Lexington and surrounding area players that ended up being NBA players. Evaluating talent is not an exact science. But, It just seems like the local kids who have pro potential have to go out of state to shine.
