Anyone think Cal Bruton should be in the top ten all time wildcat players?

re: Wildcats 30th Anniversary All Star Team

Cal Bruton was named General Manager on the 30th team. As a point guard he was always going to be overlooked by Ricky Grace and Mike Ellis. And as great as he is, a 3 season playing career in Perth probably wasn't enough to get him on the team.

Catallini only played at the start and end of his career. His best basketball was with the 36ers and Taipans. Plus he'd be competing with JC, Fish, Vlahov and Redhage. Tough to get ahead of those guys.

I'd put Anthony Stewart ahead of Harvey, but I have no issue with him being there. Shooting guard is our weakest position historically.

Yeah I know but a cracking bloke with a heart like Pharlap and I am a Taipans fan so a little biased

Yeah Harvey was a gun but i dont like him in there either. There is no reason why bruton couldn't be put in there as a shooting guard. After all, JC wasn't a true center and vlahov was more a power forward but played out of position most of their careers.

Lichti was all class! If going for pure talent he'd be right up there. Rashad Tucker deserves a mention also but unfortunately got himself kicked out of wa

Back in the 90's I used to often call Martin Catallini either:

A) Cartin Matallini

or

B) Martin Tortellini

Good times.

Didn't the Wildcats have Marcus Timmins?

I'd trust him to give his all out there over Tiny Pinder

Steven Black could play shooting guard aswell and I think he was unlucky to miss out

Marcus Timmons vs Tiny Pinder?
Leaving Tiny's law breaking tendencies aside, the man was a monster baller. He is surely one of the unquestionable locks in this team.
Timmons had a purple patch for one season but nowhere near the quality, consistency and longevity of Tiny.

No way pinder should be overlooked! Who can forget his tomahawks and rainbow jumpers. Timmons was unbelievable during the 99/00 playoff series but is not one of the wildcats greats

Didn't Timmons also shaft the Wildcats with a "I'm going overseas to play, and by that I mean the Melbourne Tigers" excuse for not re-signing?

Lichti didn't play enough seasons (3 plus a bit?)to be in contention.
Would have walked it in easily.
Cats have a thing about Cal Bruton so everyone had better just accept it. Jersey No.55 should be retired...FACT!
Harvey's best 4 seasons were better than Stewie's. Stewie was incredibly popular but this isn't a popularity list.
I still think it should have been a list of 12.

Timmons did screw the Wildcats by lying his way out of a contract. Also screwed the Tigers as he never lived up to the potential he showed.

He won a GF for them. His Game 2 vs Titans in 2000 was fantastic.

Agreed vodka 24.. He owned that GF series, hence his GF MVP trophy.

re: Wildcats 30th Anniversary All Star Team

Bruton is an NBL legend - not just a wildcats legend. Plus his wildcats careers was more renowned OFF the court rather than on it. He was great for drumming up publicity, getting the Cats popular in the late 80's, and as a general manager, getting the signatures of Pinder, Crawford and Grace.

Plus he was a championship winning COACH in 1990. The 30th anniversary team is specifically for PLAYERS who had a great contribution to the club on the court - not off it! Hence why Pinder was selected...

Cal a legend, but his greatest achievements as a wildcat were not on the court, but off it.
