I started to read an article about the top 15 signature moves in NBA history. Two of the first few captions were of John Stockton and Jeff Hornacek.
This got my mind thinking about how funny it was that two of the best semi-modern basketball players in NBA history looked less athletic than my middle school math teacher.
Before I receive comments calling me racist, let me preface this with a statement: I am a white guy who does not discriminate against white people.
There ARE cool-looking white players in the NBA (Chris "Birdman" Anderson and Dan "Thunder" Majerle come to mind). These images are not meant to disparage any race, but to give them hope.
Because if players as unathletic-looking as these guys can play in the NBA, then anything's possible.
My list does not include early NBA history. Due to discrimination, period fashion trends, and standard uniform length, almost every NBA player looked dorky until at least the '60s.
This is a list of players that are a throwback to that era. These are guys that if pictured in black and white could be mistaken for players from Dr. James Naismith's first basketball team picture.
Stay tuned for my honorable mention list as soon as I get around to putting more thought into this.
