I know people here don't seem to like Simmons, but he is by far and away my favorite sports writer. His "Book of Basketball" is a great read, his first edition had TD at #7 all time. His entries and TD and Robinson capture the players perfectly. His what-if with Robinson is fascinating...Elliot was never a better NBA player than Glen Rice, SA drafted Elliot instead of Rice, what if Rice's 20+ pts a game were paired with D-Rob? Also...he selected Popovich circa 07' as his vintage team coach.
