The List of Greatness - 1987

I think this is the first time this has ever happened - where the top ten guys stayed the same. Well, obviously Tiny Archibald isn't here anymore since he was inducted last year and was replaced by somebody else. So I should really say, everyone in the top ten who wasn't inducted last year was still in the top ten this year. There was some shifting of positions, but the names are all the same. Also, the new member of the top ten had an incredible season in 1987. Moved all the way from #82 to #4 and increased his rating by 72.9 points. That also might be a record for a single season.

2012 All-Stars

Well, I was 10 for 10 in predicting the All-Star starters. (My Rookie of the Year prediction, however, is not looking so great... To be fair, I did say I don't pay any attention to college basketball...) Although I really don't take a lot of pride in nailing every one of those picks - I'm pretty sure anyone who pays even a casual amount of attention to the NBA and saw the ballot could've predicted that. And that was really more of an exercise in knowing who was popular than good at basketball (at least this year, those two coincided, thankfully.) Now comes the fun part: figuring out the rest of the rosters.
