    Uhhh….okay.

    Riddle me this Hackman;
    How is it that you use a picture of Oscar Robertson but don’t have him on your list?

    How is it that Tim Duncan has four rings and misses the cut?

    Ever heard of Bob Petit?

    How about a marginally talented player named Kobe Bryant?

    Tiny Archibald and Paul Arizin #2 and 3?

    I think you need to alter the tagline to your blog to
    “Negligent Place on the Web”
    🙂
