Our friends at AZZ.com are on board with a great off-season hoops thread. The question is...name the starting 5 for our program's history. Always a great way to start a bar fight.
Anyway, its kind of a Rorschach test on your perspective on the program. Younger people tend to pick younger guys (Komives? Who?) and older people tend to pick older guys. The best possible case in point is that some of the people didn't name Nate Thurmond on their team, which is pretty hard to believe.
So, to join in the spirit, here are the players I would name:
G- Antonio Daniels
F- Howard Komives
C- Nate Thurmond
F- Anthony Stacey
G- Keith McLeod
Others who merit at least some consideration would be Colin Irish, David Jenkins, David Greer, Marcus (ek!) Newbern, Walt Piatikowski, Cornelius Cash, Al Bianchi, Crys Ellis...but I don't think any of them can top the players you see on that list. I would say the closest call for me is whether Colin Irish goes on or Anthony Stacey, but I just think Stacey was a tougher, more clutch player.
One other historical note: see this letter to the editor in The Blade where a local community leader calls for Butch Komives' number to be retired. If you look, his number are unreal, especially given the lack of a 3-FG.
