This All-Star break we’re looking back to ask you the question:
Who’s your All-Time Nets All-Star Team?
So here’s how we’ll do it: we chose the five best prime years (in our estimation) at each position in Nets history. We’ve pitted them against each other, and want you to vote on who YOU think is the best choice for an All-Time Nets All-Star Team.
Along with a comprehensive breakdown of their stats and team success, our crack team at The Brooklyn Game has assembled the case for each player at each position. Though some look easy on the outset, we’re talking the one best year for these guys, not their careers. So you’ll have to think about how good they were when they were at their absolute best.
The winners will be announced tomorrow, along with the reserves. Today, we close with the centers.
Last Cuts: None. The Nets have an awful history of centers. The only real competition to these five were Sam Bowie (best known for not being Michael Jordan) and Shawn Bradley (best known for being dunked on by half the league). Jason Collins could merit some inclusion as the best “six fouls” center in Nets history, but that’s not really going to cut it in an All-Star game. Plus, he’s not even the best “six fouls” center in NBA history, as you’ll learn shortly.
