Create your X dream team

Postby muskieman » Thu Jun 25, 2020 2:31 pm

Create you starting five from these former Xavier players, then add three bench players. Then one not on the list and why?
David West
Byron Larkin
Trevon Bluiett
Tu Hollway
J. P. Macura
L Chalmers
Derrick Brown
Brian Grant
James Posey
Michael Hawkins
Stanley Burrell
Tyrone Hill,
James Posey
Derek Strong,
Aaron Williams
Steve Thomas
Semaj Christon
Matt Stainbrook
Jordan Crawford
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

QueenCity I had to leave some that people could add as their plus one. What are your starting five, plus 3 bench players and one extra?

Almost impossible to be fair to some of these players. Some were here for just a few years, Different era's. How many three pointers would Steve Thomas made playing 35 games? To me the guys who played the longest in the pros are the best.

I got to see all these guys play live. Steve Thomas would have been a top pick to the pros if he hadn’t blown out his knee. Career ending in the 60s. He could shot what would have been 3 pointers with either hand. And his career had a freshman team and varsity team changes to consider.
Without any pro career numbers, I still put him all time top 10. Most of our best guards couldn’t have guarded him, IMO.

I can't believe that no one is brave enough to list their five, plus 3, plus 1.

Ok I’ll bite,
My five. West, Larkin, Grant, Posey, & Tu.
Bench, Hill, Bluiett, Crawford
My and one, Josh Duncan. Versatile, could play the 3,4, or 5.
I’ve broken the ice.
