Pete Maravich Rumors
Q: Do you see Luka Doncic as the player capable of changing the narrative on Europeans in the NBA? Rony Seikaly: Luka Doncic is one in a million. I think that he’s the best white player to ever play the game, regardless of being European. Period. He’s Larry Bird 2.0. To me, LeBron James is Magic Johnson 2.0 and Luka Doncic is a more modern version of the way Larry Bird played. I’m talking about him as a basketball player and a pure talent, not in terms of wins and championships. Now, in order to be the best player, you’ll have to back it up with multiple championships, like Larry Bird has. To get into the conversation with him, you’d better have 4-5 championships under your belt. That would staple him as the best player in the world. I think Luka is a combination of Bird and Pete Maravich.
Fans will be able to bid on the plaques of Magic Johnson, Julius “Dr. J” Erving and ‘His Airness’ himself, Michael Jordan. Auction winners will get the 25-by-28-inch black-and-white portrait that was previously found on the Hall’s domed ceiling for every person inducted. Other portraits that can be bid on include Rick Barry, Bob Cousy, Patrick Ewing, Pete Maravich, Isiah Thomas, Shaquille O’Neal and Jerry West.
Justin Kubatko: James Harden is just the seventh player in NBA history to follow up a 60-point game with a 40-point game. The others to do so are Wilt Chamberlain, Pete Maravich, Michael Jordan, Tracy McGrady, Kobe Bryant, and Kemba Walker. pic.twitter.com/B6BBmnZDgS
Micah Adams: Stephen Curry had as many or more 35-point games that series as the following players had in their entire playoff careers: – Ray Allen – Chris Mullin – Patrick Ewing – Adrian Dantley – Pete Maravich – James Worthy – David Robinson – Steve Nash – David Thompson – Kevin Garnett
Micah Adams: There is precedent for LeBron to make an All-NBA team while playing 55 games for a losing team. Bernard King made 1st Team in 1984-85 while playing 55 for the 24-58 Knicks. Pete Maravich made 2nd Team in 1977-77 while playing 50 for the 39-43 Jazz.
