Favourite 90's NBA player

Let's steer clear from the MJ, Magic, players that everyone loves, and let us know who your real favourite player is.

Mine are:

Reggie Miller - specifically the Conference Finals of 1995
Scott Skiles - boy could he drop dimes!
Fat Lever - for no other reason than he had a funny name, and i had his basketball card.

Kurt Rambis  the goggles did it for me baby. He was closer to the 80's but.

In the 90's it was Chris Mullins or Derrick Coleman.

Loy Vaught was the man.

Karl Malone was pretty damn immpresive during the 90's.

Also thought Pooh Richardson had the nastiest name in the NBA during the 90's.

This thread inspired me to grab my old folder of basketball cards and dust em off.

Here are some of the best selections:
Dominique Wilkins
Larry Bird
Harold Minor ('93 Slam Dunk Champion)
John Starks
Clyde Drexler
David Robinson

I wonder if those cards would be worth anything?

Probably be worth about the same as a bag of cat's eye's marbles and a fluro slap band.

Yo Grandmama!
The MJ & Larry Bird commercial was also a hit...

Who could leave out Dennis Rodman. For a guy his size he was able to win the award for NBA TOP REBOUNDER something like three or four years in a row. He might have been on the strange side but that is an impressive award against a lot bigger guys in the NBA.

The Admiral all day. I used to have a life sized (not 7 foot but you get the idea) poster of him on chip board in my room, loved it.

Larry Johnson was cool too. Him and Zo' in NBA Jam were killers.

Tom Chambers - was a superstar at PF.

Averaged 18ppg in over 1,100 NBA games & I was very lucky to see him play regularly when I lived in Seattle.

Was happy to see that his career went onward & upward after being traded to the Suns.

The white bloke you're refering too is John Stockton who overtook Magic Johnson's all-time assists record.
