    Nobody has said Theo Ratliff either
    one of the alltime great shotblockers who sat on shitty teams mostly.
    Was pleasantly surprised to see he earned 100mil in the league when I checked on basketball-ref

    Hahah I'm a Celts fan and I don't have as many fond memories of him other than the funny mouthpiece look, but that reminds me of one of the all time great forgotten darkhorse players:
    James Posey.
    Great defending. Knack for the clutch 3. No coincidence he was the glue guy on 2 entirely different teams/franchises

    I feel like people remember him. Especially because of M-M-M-M-Mookie....but I don't think people realize how good he actually was.

    Too bad he suffered from Trump hands.

    Baron Davis. Solid physical guard. Key player to Golden State being the first 8th seed to knock off a 1st in a best of 7.

    Jeff Foster was an extremely good rebounder that never got the same love as a Reggie Evans

    He twice averaged 9 RPG in only 25 or so mins, and had 3.4+ ORPG in 4 different seasons at 26 mpg or less

    That's lowkey tremendous, hes 5th all time in ORB% and 11th in TRB%

    1xAS and elite 3pt shooter Dana Barros barely gets mentioned

    His AS season of 20 & 7 he shot 46% from 3 on 5.2 attempts per game

    In the 90s FFS, at 5'11"

    While everyone knows him, Pejas 03/04 season gets seriously slept on. Led the league in OWS, 24 ppg on 48/43/93 splits

    2nd in TS, 2nd in WS, 5th in ORTG, 2nd in EFG

    Chambers, and probably Antawn Jamison are the only 20k point scorers for their careers NOT to make the HoF. Jamison also has 8k rebounds

    Not counting guys who just retired and will get in

    I was tempted to say Tyrus too, but he definitely got more shine thanks to the NCAA tourney and his absurd contract.

    Yeah he was a fantasy monster for a few years around then. Whole team was loaded. Bobby Jax!

    This is fantastic choice and this guy arguably paved the way for guys like AI.
    He played HS ball just a few towns over from me.
    I used to rec ball with 10-day contract and Michigan Center Courtney Sims and got to watch a few future fringe NBA guys like Mike Jones and Demtrious Nichols hoop it up.

    I feel like the bottom 4 are definitely remembered, however, good call on Seikley. The Spin Doctor could hoop!
