Sick!

I love(d) MoPete, and he's one of my favouritre Raptors of all-time.

I still think one of the classiest moves ever -by an ex Raptor- was when MoPete came back to the ACC for the first time, as a member of the Hornets, and after being announced, knelt down, and kissed the claw at mid-court.

One of the only games I've ever actually attended BTW.

You just had to go there Benzo....didn't you?! That was impressive and more impressive since it was on Ken Johnson a great shot blocker at Ohio State.

Nice dunk by Mo Pete.

Who noticed Michael Redd on the Ohio State Team. Michael Redd and Sconnie Penn-great backcourt tandem.

He never seemed as athletic when he hit the NBA and certainly didn't add weight in a way that helped him... but he was a classy guy that loved Toronto girls. His cousin too.

Never thought he was good enough to be more than a bench guy, but being on a team that lacked talent had unrealistic expectations placed upon him.

Everyone wanted Mo Pete to be Robin to Carter's Batman.

Unfortunately, Carter was Robin and Mo was Alfred.

lol

I'd disagree that Carter wasn't Batman... but maybe I just fondly remember those times around that slam competition... good times. But Carter was a top 5 player at one point in my mind... teams used to triple team him with physicality to the point where LBJ would start crying if he got that type of treatment....

IMO physcially he could've been and to a certain extent was Batman, but mentally he just wasn't up to the challenge.

That team was sick. Redd, Penn, Ken Johnson(Center), Brian Brown, Sean Connolly, Brent Darby was a backup on that team that ended up a good player at Ohio State.

That team had great guard play.

Ohio State had a great team, but the Duke team was ridiculous:

Elton Brand, Corey Maggette, Shane Battier,Trajan Langdon, and William Avery.

Yeah Duke has had some crazy talented teams.

As a Ohio State fan that 1998-2000 teams was one of the best of my lifetime. That is when I started watching BB also.

2006 was another one:
Greg Oden, Mike Conley Jr, Daquean Cook, Ron Lewis, Ivan Harris, Jamar Butler, Hunter, David Lighty, & Matt Terwilliger

This year team could end up being better then those 2
Jared Sullinger, David Lighty, William Buford, Jon Dibeler, Dallas Lauderdale, Aaron Craft, DeShaun Thomas.

HA. We didn't win that game but we did beat your Michigan State team that year at home. So we broke even with you that year.

Although you guys got the last laugh by winning it all that year. I believe that was the year MSU won the NC.

Did anyone else notice the young freshman jumping up and down after Mo Pete's dunk is none other than Jason Richardson (#23)!?

True, but the 00-01 Duke team was arguably even better. They had Batteir at his peak in his final year (averaging an insane 20 points and 7 boards - shit!), Carlos Boozer, Mike Dunleavy and Chris Duhon.

His knee is still fucked, so he's still on their bench on the last season of his contract. Get this, he's the highest paid Buck by a country mile, making $18.3 million this year (#5 overall in the NBA this season!).

Florida 2006 team(that won B-2-B titles) was pretty good. The great part about this team it was so balance.

Green 13PPG-4APG
Brewer 13PPG-5RPG
Horford 13PPG-9RPG
Noah 12PPG-9RPG
Humphrey(3pt shooter): 10PPG shot 46% from 3.

Each guy could take over the game. That was their starting 5.
