Back then they could. Kerr was short, not fast, basically a 3 point shooter and that's about it. I could have also subbed in - John Paxon, Mark Price, and Bill Murray. ;)

Mark Price was actually a pretty good point guard in his day. Put up some good assist numbers in Cleveland. 4 time All-Star.

Fatty McGee:

I don't get the Iverson hate - that guy threw (throws) his little body into every game, on both offense and defense.

--- End quote ---

Horrible usage rates,  took poorly to coaching, perceived as a selfish player, and played his best ball when the league was about at it's worst.

He's the poor man's Tiny Archibald, except that Archibald was a much less abrasive personality.

Fatty McGee:

I guess I'll just have to own up to my love for his game being irrational.

Yea, but did he throw his little body into practice?  Practice.  We talkin' about practice.  Not the game.  Not the game that I... that I go out there and die for... but practice.  Look, I know practice is important, but c'mon... we talkin about practice.

Hey, Tiny was easily one of the 50 best in the history of the NBA, and Iverson belongs in that discussion, too.      I just can't bring myself to like the guy, but I can respect the hell out of his game.
