That's true, George, but you can't deny that Thabeet wasn't given a chance. Blocks aren't everything.
George does not have any awards.
Just a little info on the GREAT Mr. Sam Jones.
Sam Jones was a great player and is a great man that I've had the pleasure to meet and had a conversation with. The amazing thing is that Red Auerbach drafted Sam Jones despite the fact that he didn't know who he was and had never watched him play in a game. On YouTube there is a 4 part video that you can watch that will tell you the story. This is the link to part 1 from and from there you can watch parts 2,3 and 4. There was a SAM jONES DAY HELD at the old Boston Garden and I was there...

Thabeet is a stiff but is it a surprise he averages less than 1 bock per game? 0.9 blocks per game for his career isn't bad for a player who has only played an average of 10.9 minutes per game in his NBA career. He's averaged 3.0 blocks per game in 36 minutes if you check for his NBA stats that's more than Dwight Howard averages in blocks per 36 minutes. Just for the record Joe I'm not a fan of Thabeet's

Etan just a little info you may not be aware of. The 3 point line in the NBA was changed.
During the 1994–95, 1995–96, and 1996–97 seasons, the NBA attempted to address decreased scoring by shortening the distance of the line to a uniform 22 feet (6.7 m) around the basket. In 1995–96, Dennis Scott set the record for most three-pointers made in a season (267) and George McCloud set the record for most three-point attempts (678). From the 1997–98 season, the NBA reverted the line to its original distance of 23 feet, 9 inches (22 feet at the corners).
I'm a huge Larry Bird fan. Larry Bird had 4 years where he shot few 3's (for him) and shot a low %. tn those 4 seasons80- 81,81-82,82-83,83-84 he only shot .270,.212,.286 and .247% after that his 3pt % got better as well as his ft% which is hard to imagine considering the injuries he played through.

In his sixth game as the replacement for Cedric Maxwell at forward in 1985 the 6-10 McHale broke the Boston single-game scoring record scoring 56 points. Larry Bird broke it later scoring 57 points in a game which is the Celtics current record.
McHale, made 22-of-28 shots from the field and 12-of-13 free-throw attempts in that game and also had 16 rebounds, 10 on the offensive boards, turning nine of them into rebound baskets.
Please don't comment on NBA basketball because you're clueless.

You including Kevin Mchale on your overrated article is a joke. How many points did you expect McHale to score playing on the same team with Bird,Parish and Dennis Johnson? The Celtics were great because they SHARED THE BALL and McHale was not only unstoppable down low he was a GREAT defender. In the '87 playoffs Mchale was playing on a broken foot. Boston ended up losing the Finals in six and his career was never the same and to this day he walks with a slight limp because of it..
Kevin Mchale defensive awards.

Larry Bird was as good as any player that ever shot a basketball especially if you consider all the injuries he had.

Maek just FYI.
The Bill Russell NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award (formerly known as the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award) is an annual National Basketball Association (NBA) award given since the 1969 NBA Finals. The award is decided by a panel of nine media members, who cast vote after the conclusion of the final round. The person with the highest votes wins the award. In at least one NBA Finals, fans balloting on NBA.com accounted for the tenth vote. Originally, the award was a black trophy with a gold basketball-shaped sphere at the top, similar to the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, until a smaller trophy was introduced in 2005.
