Best player you've seen play

The best player, that I have seen.
( I did not see Michael Jordan, live)
I saw Werner Linde.
I would say, Al Green.

When I played, ( a long time ago )

Most of the players told me that

Hakeem Olajuwon was best in the WORLD at THAT time

Don Shipway, first Five with South Adelaide ( with Ahmatt.Whitford.Davie.Clarke)
And, Ignitavius there were a few of them like Nagy.

Lester had a cooler first name... Lester > Andrew... No brainer really... But, on the other hand Gaze trumps Conner... She's a toughie... The fact of the matter is he made it in the NBA with a name like Lester - must have been hard at times... Honorable Mention - Patrick Eddie... Also a member of the Magic Johnson All Star Barnstormers...

Dean Whitford did not play in the Olympics.

As for best I ever saw, Magic Johnson wins (part of his Australian tour).

Best game I've ever seen someone play was John Rillie for Norwood in an ABL final at the Dome. He dominated like no-one before or since.

'64 Olympics we took 12 players
(Whitford was named first emergency,or 13th best player in Aust.) Seven south australians went.
S.A. beat the Olympic team here after they decided not to include werner linde etc.
Ken Cole was best that day.

I saw Wayne McDaniel score 56 against the Sixers at Apollo - not that he's the greatest I've seen, it's just the most points I've seen in a game.

There were a total of 7 Nagy brothers and one sister.
As far as I know, only 4 brothers played together. The older two never played District as far as I know, but tne next 4 brothers, Geza, Csaba, Huba and Sittya all played together at one tme. A sister was the next oldest.
Boti was a lot younger and I'm pretty sure he never played District Ball.
And Huba was one heck of a player. 3 Woolacott medals at the same time Werner Linde was winning his 3.

Nagy ( I THOUGHT Boti played,but there were so many I could be wrong).

Linde ( I saw him play many times,and , train a bit, only ever heard him called Werner. Although ' the doctor ' a few times .. He is a Dr of course)
