[QUOTE]Cow didn't read my post correctly.......I listed all those centers and said all were All Stars and MOST were HOF's.....so he immediately points out that Beaty is not in the hall.....right man.....an all star as I said (great career)...not in the hall....did you miss something here? [/QUOTE]
If your criteria is merely all-star, then you lose even more. Look at these all-stars besides the HOFers I listed during the same big-time era (1979-80 - 1991-92): Bill Laimbeer, Brad Daugherty, Jack Sikma, JB Carroll, Jeff Ruland, Mr. Bill, Mark Eaton, James Donaldson, Kevin Willis, ...
You still want to play?
Then he lists some mediocre centers from different era's.....you can do that in any sport, in any era....my point was....during the Celtic's run the league was loaded with talent...I asked someone to name me the "great centers of today's NBA"[/QUOTE]
Why only today's NBA? the big-time era that I introduced was from the beginning of the Bird/Magic era. So are you going to wimp out on the players I listed and only concentrate on today's NBA?
OK, let's see some all-stars in this era:
Shaq, Dirk, Al Hortford, Superman, Amare, Chris Kaman, Z, Yao, ...
So I don't know what you are getting at. Do you realize that there are all-stars EVERY YEAR?
"But the players you list are not HOF materials", you say?
How do you know? I listed more HOFers from early in the big-time era than you listed in the glorious Celtics years. Do you realize they have to induct someone every year?
.....I'm still waiting....all this great talent from all over the world and a handfull of good pivot men? .....Shasha is a Laker....back in the 60's & 70's Shasha would not be playing Amercian pro basketball.......

and the stiffs in the 1960s can? You have yet to tell us how bit players like Jimmy Darrow, Dick Eichhorst, Bill Smith, Joe Ruklick, etc., who spend the prime of their careers selling insurance or used cars or something else, can be better than a Shasha who plays/trains in the NBA day in day out...
