if you need a little shooting, I recommend this backcourt tandem. 

And if you need someone to elbow the opposition in the kidneys, you can't do better than Stockton/Hornacek.

If you don't have Larry Bird #1 and Pete Maravich #2, you can go sit at the kid's table and eat whatever white people eat. I don't know what white people eat and black people eat, because I don't see color.

Bird, West, and Pistol Pete would be an awesome 3-on-3 team. Jasón Williams off the bench.

related story- back in like 2004 or 2005 there was some white HS wide receiver prospect who ran a 4.28 at a Nike camp. On Hornfans I commented, "that's the fastest white boy I've ever seen." Katy suspended me and sent me an angry pm about how speaking about race is never appropriate. yeah. that's what it was like on HF for those who weren't there.

Is April white history month? 

And for arguments sake, West is the logo, if hes not in the top 2, you're (your) a fucking idiot.

The sample size is so small I could be just outside the top 10.

Oh, you forgot Jack Sikma.

Can’t believe I accidentally left off Jerry West. I’d replace Nash with West.

It is much more interesting to discuss the top-10 white players in the modern NBA era.  In the early years, ALL the players were white, so why even discuss them?

For the post-merger era, I would go with:

1. Larry Bird

2. Dirk Nowitzki

3. John Stockton

4. Bill Walton

5. Kevin McHale

6. Steve Nash

7. Pete Maravich (borderline modern era)

8. Chris Mullin

9. Arvydas Sabonis

10. Tom Chambers

Others: Paul Westphal, Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Manu Ginobli, Detlef Schremph

 

What about the best bi-racial players of the modern era?  I would go with:

1. Steph Curry

2. Jason Kidd

3. Tony Parker

4. Klay Thompson

5. Blake Griffin

6. Ben Simmons

7. Devon Booker

8. Zach Lavine

9. Shane Battier

10. Joakim Noah

Others: Mike Bibby, Deron Williams

"Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes." - R. Murdock

Thus, Walton has to be on the list.

How is luka in there OP? He has played maybe a 100ish games. Yes he is fun to watch but he could blow out a knee or get in a car crash tomorrow. Not top 10 of all time, and my kid has his jersey and a big ass poster of him on the wall so not putting down his awesome game.

that, and the fact that Luka is a transcendent player who projects to *easily* be the best foreign born player in NBA history by the time he retires.

I don't project Luka to be easily better than Hakeem, Derk.

you're right. to say that he will easily exceeed Hakeem is too much. still, if i may rephrase my original statement, he projects to be the best European born player ever. the kid is truly an all-time talent for his age. he's amazing.

Good list but I would have Bird 2nd,  Penders Jr in 3rd and Brandy Perryman in 1st.

You're such a waste of space shithead troll. I don't get why people like you think it's funny to take advantage of some societal downtime to go parade your dick around the entire board. Take it easier on the booze or ratchet down the peanut gallery.
