Who Are Tech's Best Basketball Players?

     As this season meanders along I keep saying to myself things like, "I actually like basketball."  So in that spirit lets reflect on some positive images from the past.

   If I had a time machine that would allow me to pluck any Tech basketball player during their prime and put them on a team together I would come up with the following roster:

Center        Rich Yunkus  (all time Tech leading scorer)

Forward     Sammy Drummer  (on teams where he rarely had any talent around him he still is one of Tech's leaders in average points per game)

Forward   Matt Harpring   (made his teammates  better and also is a leader in average points per game)

Guard   Mark Price  (what more can you say about the player who brought Tech back to prominence?)

Guard Kenny Anderson  (he can stack up with any of Tech's best guards)

        I thought of lots of other players and thought about doing a depth chart at each position but I got too lazy.  Since this is subjective I was really trying to get at which players all time gave me a sense of confidence whenever they had the ball.  The aforementioned list is it.  Rarely did these guys make mistakes and they could be counted on in the clutch.  All of them were flat out dangerous scorers.  I also think you see in them another quality.  Each one made the chemistry of their team better.

     A second list of Tech players would be those who went on to be good NBA players.  The best of that lot seems to be Mark Price, Dennis Scott, Stephon Marbury, Kenny Anderson and Chis Bosh.

    O.K., I want to hear your thoughts on any or all of the following questions.

1.  Do you think any of Tech's current players will end up among Tech's all time elite players?

2.  Do you think any of Tech's current players will end up being NBA stars of the caliber I've mentioned?

3.  Who are your favorite Tech stars of the past and what did you like about them?
