I think everyone forgot about D-mac haha

Carlos Powell was another one that I thought deserved a mention.

DMac and Darnell Mee were 2 of the best import guards I've seen. Grace was terrific as well. All 3 were winners.

Camel - Green arrived as an import and naturalised, as did Grace, Davis, Loggins etc. He was still an import when he won his MVP and also for the Bearcats championship.

Who the hell is Rocky Smith?

There's too many amazing imports who had long careers here to consider Ennis. I'd take Fish ahead of him.

I like your list more than anyones's, TPayne.

Needs Copeland though, he won Ships and Rucker didn't IIRC. Nor did Green.

T - Payne's list is pretty damn good. A case could be made for Copeland but it's the most complete list I've seen so far.
Rocky Smith, Ennis were great but only lasted a year or two. Cedrick Jackson might make that list one day.

Al the players on T- Payne's list had the common thread of longevity in the NBL. That's going yo score you some votes!

Yep, thats what I went for, longevity. Really needed to have guys in there that played at least 5 seasons.

Hard to leave out Copeland, its almost like leaving out Pippen because he played with Jordan kinda thing.

green 2 championships / 2 losses ! mvp
still holds scoring record which wont be beaten.
most outstanding import combination of all-time Leroy loggins and al green in their prime.
