With xbay asking the question of who we think got snubbed, I started thinking who could be considered the best undrafted NBA players of all-time. Or maybe the last 20 years or so because I dont know much earlier than that.

Anyway, started brainstorming and here are some guys that jump out at me:

John Starks
Udonis Haslem
Ben Wallace
Avery Johnson
Bruce Bowen
Bo Outlaw
Brad Miller

Out of those, I guess Starks and Wallace would have to top the list. I gotta be missing someone though...

Good calls on Armstrong and Wesley. Definately deserving to be listed. Raja Bell probably as well.

Yeah, Armstrong just seemed to be around forever.


Wesley on the other hand will have his entire career overshadowed by this moment:

yeah, I think you might be right, although dont think he is good enough to make the list with those others.

I think we will be able to add more names to the list at the end of this year..................after we sign about 6 undrafted rookies and have to have them all play major minutes in our rotation all year. :wink:
