Hersey Hawkins actually played center in a game I went to in Miami. He scored 40 points? They lost but it was a crazy Allen Bristow lineup.

Bobby Phills was a great 2 guard before was killed.

I went to elementary school with Cory Hawkins (Hersey's son) and Stephen Curry. I actually played basketball on the same team as Cory.

Underrated with the league or with the franchise?

 

I think Hersey Hawkins and Scott Burrell were unappreciated during their time in Charlotte.  Not that they were disliked, but they did a lot more than they were given credit for.

 

Jamaal Magloire was a stud that wasn't utilized as much as he could have been.

Magloire fell off fast.

Best Underrated Players:

David Wesley, Vlade Divac, Bobby Phils, Dell Curry, Kendall Gill, Rex Champman, Eddie Jones, PJ Brown... and I was a big fan of Ricky Davis as our sixth man for a season.

 

Best Rated Players:

Alonzo Mourning, Larry Johnson, Baron Davis, Glen Rice, Jamal Mashburn, Anthony Mason

Now for the three worst players...Guys that made me scream at the tv.

Mike Giminski, George Zidek, Kevin Lynch

Of course good plays that mede me facepalm a lot were Dell Curry(because he would either hit all his bad shots or make all of them)

Alonzo Mourning would kill any ball movement in the offense and was really frustrating to watch. A lot of his points came from the line where he would trip over his clumsey feet driving and the refs bailed him out with superstar calls(id never complain but shake my head)

When he broke his thumb and was out for two to three weeks the ball movement and scoring was easy.

Elliot Perry was also horrible as a Hornet but fantastic as a Phoenix Sun.

Anyone remember when we signed Michael Adams from the Washington Bullets-Wizards and had him and mugsey playing at the same time..5'3 and 5'8
