    Where does Trevor Releford rate among best Alabama basketball players in the past 20 years? (poll) ow.ly/ulG0u

    He's the career steals leader and solidly within the top 10 scorers. As the first player to score 1,800 points in the last 21 years, but we're only looking at the last 20 (sic).

  • All-Time Teams for each current SEC school based solely on what the players did in the NBA/ABA.

    Mizzou

    Larry Drew, PG scored over 8,000 points in 10 NBA seasons. Drew averaged over 20 ppg and 8 apg for the Kansas City Kings in his third season, '82-83. He is currently head coach of the Bucks. His son Larry II plays for the Sioux Falls Skyforce in the D League. The elder Drew managed The Magic Johnson Foundation upon ending his pro playing career.

    At Mizzou, Drew scored 1,401 points in four seasons, averaging over 15 ppg as a junior.  He is the only Tiger to lead the team in assists three consecutive seasons.  He helped Mizzou win the Big 8 Tournament in '78 and the regular season title in '80. He was two-time team MVP and leadership award winner.

    Anthony Peeler SG, scored over 8,000 points in 13 NBA seasons beginning in '92-93. Peeler shot over 48% from the NBA 3 in his next to last season. The McD's AA from KC was the Big 8 POY in '92 averaging over 23 ppg. He scored 1,970 points in his four-year Mizzou career. He helped MU win the conference regular season and Big 8 Tourney, making the NCAA-T three times.

    Steve Stipanovich C, scored 5,323 points in 5 NBA seasons for a Mizzou alum high of 13.2 ppg and 7.8 rpg. He made the NBA All-Rookie Team in 1984 from the Pacers. Like Peeler, Stipo was Big 8 Newcomer of the Year and as a Senior was Big 8 POY. He totaled 1,836 points and 984 rebounds in four seasons. He averaged over 18 points and 8 boards as a senior.

    Stipanovich accidentally discharged a firearm injuring his shoulder early during his sophomore season. He initially reported that a "masked intruder with cowboy boots and a flannel shirt" who hated basketball players broke into his residence and shot him. After basketball Stipanovich owns and operates a coal mine and is involved in a ministry to help women who are victims of abuse.

    Keyon Dooling G, scored over 5,000 points in 13 NBA seasons ending last year, averaging seven ppg. At Mizzou, he averaged over 15 ppg his second and final season. From his MU bio: "... should really blossom in new coach Quin Snyder’s up-tempo, full-court style of play ... Has the ability to take over a game with his acrobatics and show-stopping play ..."

    Jon Sunvold G, scored 3,886 points in 9 NBA seasons. Sunvold averaged 7.7 ppg for his career, twice averaging in double figures scoring for a season. A teammate of Stipanovich, Sunvold was 2nd Team All-American in 1983. He scored almost 1,600 points in his MU career, averaging over 17 ppg as a senior. Sunvold is the analyst on the Missouri Sports Network and does some work on national broadcasts.

    Honorable Mention: 70s F John Brown, Linas Kleiza, Kareem Rush, Doug Smith, Med Park, Al Eberhard, and Demarre Carroll.

    Note: Norm Stewart played five games for the '56-57 St. Louis Hawks.

    Coach Stewart's assistant coach Kim Anderson played 21 games for the '78-79 Trailblazers.

  • Bailey Howell won two NBA Championships and is a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

    The 12-year NBA veteran and former second overall pick in 1959 is also the only Mississippi State player to have his jersey number retired in the rafters where the Bulldogs play.

    Now the street that passes Humphrey Coliseum will bear his name. Coliseum Drive will now be known as Bailey Howell Drive.


    Quote
    MSU president Mark Keenum: “I believe this honor is something the MSU family will deem most appropriate and long overdue.”

    Howell was a three-time All-SEC selection for MSU from 1957-59 scoring 2,030 career points, which ranks second in school history. His 27.1 scoring average is still the benchmark for the program.

    The 6-foot-7 forward went on score 17,770 points for the Detroit Pistons, Baltimore Bullets, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers before retiring in 1971.

    The C Spire Bailey Howell Trophy is given to the top collegiate men’s basketball player in Mississippi in his honor. The 77-year old is a fixture at Bulldog basketball games and is the father-in-law of director of athletics Scott Stricklin.

  • There was a recent good discussion on the number of players each conference has sent to the NBA. As schools switch conference affiliations, this gets muddier (Carmelo has to count for the Big East, not the ACC, right? …)

    Current All-NBA teams by SEC school requires SEC schools to have five players in the NBA.

    Ben Ward took a cut at UK's current All-NBA team:

    PG: John Wall, Rajon Rondo, Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight

    SG: Jodie Meeks

    SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Tayshaun Prince

    PF: Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, Patrick Patterson

    C*: DeMarcus Cousins, Nerlens Noel

    *I didn’t put Enes Kanter on the team, because although he went to Kentucky, he never actually played

  • All-Time Teams for each current SEC school based solely on what the players did in the NBA/ABA.

    Florida

    David Lee, C-F, 15.2 ppg and 9.8 rpg career, still active in his 8th season. Lee's a 2-time NBA All-Star and one of the top ten salary earners that are SEC alum. 2nd Team All-SEC as a Florida senior averaging 13.3 ppg and 6.8 rpg.

    Vernon Maxwell, G, Scored 10,912 points in 12 year career, averaging 12.8 ppg. Maxwell left as Florida's all-time leading scorer (2,450). It was later learned he took money from an agent. His records were erased. Maxwell had later legal issues including charges of adduction.

    Mike Miller, SF-SG, In his 13th season, Miller has 10,457 career points, averaging 12.0 ppg. One of the top ten former SEC salary earners in the NBA. In two seasons at UF, Miller was a Freshman All-American and Coaches All-SEC as a Soph.

    Al Horford, C, 2-time NBA all-star and All-Rookie. Averaged 14.0 and 9.5 in his career which continues in its sixth season. Horford was on the two-time Florida National Championship teams. Second in UF history in blocked shots and 7th in rebounds. All-SEC his junior and final season.

    Jason Williams, PG, averaged 10.5 and 6.0 assists in 12 seasons. Third most minutes played of any Florida player in the NBA. He won an NBA championship in 2006 and was an All-Rookie.  He followed Donovan from Marshall to Florida and once had 17 assists in one game. He was kicked out for pot usage. In high school he was one of the "good ol' boys, never meaning no harm" with Randy Moss.

    Honorable mention: Joakim Noah, Brad Beal, Udonis Haslem, Chandler Parsons, 7'0" Maravich-era C Neal Walk, Corey Brewer

    Expect Noah and Brad Beal to move into the Gator all-time starting five:

    So cool to see Joakim Noah go from a guy who couldn't get off the bench his 1st year at UF to 1st team All-NBA. Talent+coaching+hard work

    Shams Charania @ShamsCharania
    Jannero Pargo agreed to a fully guaranteed one-year, $1.5 million deal to re-sign with the Charlotte Hornets, league source tells RealGM.
    11:03 AM - 18 Jul 2014

    Quote
    I’m guessing Pargo will receive the minimum salary, $1,448,490 – $533,247 of which would be paid by the NBA. He averaged career highs in points (20.2), assists (7.7) and steals (2.1) per 36 minutes with Charlotte last season in a career-low 242 minutes, the fit warrants him returning. He might have just figured out how to play well in Steve Clifford’s system.
