I was doing some light reading lastnight and it got me thinking, who are some NBA stars that people seem to forget just how good they were?. They don’t have to be totally forgotten as in nobody remembers them but forgotten as is in how damn good they actually were.
Hit with some names fellow 2kgamers.
I’m going to have to google him later. I’ve heard the name but don’t know anything about him
“google me chuck” Shaq voice
Jahlil gonna make the league remember him
Kevin Martin. He was constantly injured and sort of faded into obscurity in Minnesota in his later years. When he was healthy though he was lethal. Could get to the line anytime he wanted with great 6’7 size at shooting guard. He averaged 25 a game one season and consistently in the low-mid 20s when healthy. Not a star necessarily, but someone who could really play.
I’m actually rooting for Jahlil man, I hope he can get some minutes and ball out
Coincidentally, Stevie Franchise.
B Roy too tbh. If it weren’t for his juiced cards in 2k, many would not even know of what the guy was capable of when healthy
Yeah Kevin could ball and when he caught fire, oh dear lord! Definitely slept on
Mitch Richmond, Stephon Marbury
Broy is definitely forgotten about outside of 2k for sure. Guy had it all.
Wilt Chamberlain (as much as he’s brought up in GOAT talks, it’s not enough)
Off the top of my head
Mitch the glitch! Man was lethal
People forget Wilt man, he was something else. Great list.
He was legit a more efficient, second coming of Kobe imo for a few years. Had the clutch gene, nasty dunks, and everything else. Shame what happened to him
Bdiddy! Everybody remembers old, fat Baron but forget NOLA Baron was a stud
I feel I saw an interview where Kobe even said this.
