The Arkansas basketball Twitter account put this out earlier. I’m going to need some time on this.
They left Mason off?
Apparently. No offense to Dusty Hannahs, but Mason should be on there over him, in my opinion.
I agree. SEC CPOY deserves to be on the list anyway.
The tweet says positionless, but positionless gets you killed on the glass. So…
C – Gafford. Scoring plus rim protection.
PF – Corliss. Duh.
SG – Moncrief. IMO he was really a small forward here without enough outside shot to be a SG, but you have to put him somewhere.
PG – Mason, scoring and distributing.
Sent my dad this graphic. He went with:
I think my group would be:
Both defensible. Marvin was a small forward basically and jumped center even with a 7-footer in the lineup. I don’t know how you could leave Corliss out though. Beck was tough as nails but didn’t score enough; 7.9 career average.
As a point guard growing up, I liked watching Beck. I’ll take his five assists and two steals per game, let him get the guards going and feed the bigs. Just a personal preference taking Gafford and Big O. I love how Gafford runs the floor, and Big O was a terrific outlet passer. I want my team to run and he can get us going in transition.
Ron Brewer, Sr.
PG-Lee Mayberry, could do it all.
SG-Todd Day, could make the 3, plus drive and create his own shot.
SF-Joe Johnson, same as Day
PF-Corliss Williamson, strong, good offense and defense, and rebounding.
C-Bobby Portis-versatile and could create a lot of mismatches for his teammates.
It’s tough to leave some out, especially my man Joe Johnson, but I will go with 5 who accomplished most as a Razorback
C - Oliver Miller
PF - Corliss Williamson
SF/SG - Todd Day
SG - Sidney Moncrief
PG - Lee Mayberry
Murry is too good for this lineup.
Lee Mayberry Guard
Oliver Miller Center
Marvin Delph Forward (would average 30 with the 3)
Corliss Williamson Forward
You’re right. Scratch Ernie and add Steve Bates (need more size anyway)
Corey Beck (would punch his Grandma to win)
Corliss Williamson (absolutely unstoppable in college)
Oliver Miller (best passing big I’ve ever seen)
Scotty Thurman (he hit “the shot,” nuff said)
Todd Day (an assassin’s assassin)
I can’t believe Joe Kleine hasn’t been mentioned. He even played on an Olympic team.
Lee Mayberry/Corey Beck
Todd Day/Martin Terry
Scotty Thurman/Joe Johnson
Corliss Williamson/Dean Tolson
Oliver Miller/George Kok
Alvin Robinson-Darrell Walker
Huge missing item. Who’s the coach?
Corliss and Moncrief are the only crossovers depending on the coach. They were hands down for me our 2 best all time players. They play and start for any coach.
So did Alvin Robertson, who also has one of four quadruple doubles in NBA history, and the first that didn’t go to overtime.
