    Beat me to it. Speaking of former guards, anyone know if Marcus Hall is still playing overseas? I heard he was doing quite well for a time.

    Pelle was really good but a victim of ricardo's coaching. Too bad. He could have been a millionaire.

    Big E was solid too. Not NBA solid, but that guy was the man. Those teams could have been pretty good with a decent coach.

    Pros and cons for playing in the D-League as opposed to abroad. Cory probably feels like it'll make him more visible to the NBA and presents a chance to immediately jump in if an NBA roster spot prevents itself (if the NBA ever plays again). Erie is affiliated with the NY Knicks. Hopefully he's able to break into the NBA, but if not then get out of the D-League after a couple years and go enjoy the good money and strong competition that numerous European leagues have to offer.

    On a side note, Levi is having (had?) quite the rookie season in Mallorca.

    What about Michel Morandais? Did he go on to play anywhere? He was a hell of a scorer.

    A great scrapper. Did the little things on defense and rebounding to help the '02-'03 team win.

    Pelle's problem was that he was a very good all around player on 2 good teams that didn't have any other all around players...so he had to pick up the slack a lot times for Morandais and Harrison's sometimes self-ish or outright lazy play on the boards and on D.
