The List of Greatness - 1986

I just realized it's been about three months since I've done one of these. Yikes. I have high hopes I'll get it brought current before the end of the season. (Assuming I don't take three months do the next one.) This year, we get to see the rare occurrence of a supplemental member jumping up to the regular list. (Slater Martin, Chet Walker, and Jerry Lucas are the only other ones to do that so far.)

Is Kobe Gunning for Kareem?

You know, I'd never even considered the possibility that Kobe Bryant could end his career as the all-time leading scorer in NBA history, but after he went for 48 points last night (something I didn't really think he could do anymore), I started to think that it might conceivably happen and started some crunching some numbers.

An Exercise in Egotism (My Pre-season-ish Award Picks)

The All-Star ballot was revealed today and voting opened - a full ten days into the season. But what are you gonna do when the All-Star Game is on the same date and the season started two months late? At least we're getting an All-Star Game this year.

Anyway, I was kind of waiting for the ballot to be revealed to make preseason picks, since I knew it wasn't going to be too far into the season. But I really didn't need to. I could've made these picks at the end of last year with 100% certainty.
