Vice Carter
Chris Bosh
Amir Johnson (Lowery could take this if he sticks around and keeps up the great play)
Anthony Parker (I'm surprised no one else mentioned AP, deff one of my top faves while he was here...those 3's he would nail were so clutch)

they should have the heads of oakley, ad, alvin and jyd with angry expressions on their faces carved into the acc so the players can see them glaring down at them while they play.

in a few years you could replace jyd with amir.

way off topic, but ...

TJ was a plantation owner in the south, at a time when slaves were the only way to work (at a profit) a cotton plantation - everybody was doing that. Sure, he could have freed his slaves and live in poverty, but I wouldn't call him a bad man, at least not by the standards of that age. Not to mention that if he did that, he wouldn't have had any chance of implementing his crucial anti-slavery policies.

By that token, lincoln was a bad man too, since he was not a supporter of equality of blacks and whites, he was just against slavery. It's important to put things in perspective, a lot of things that 200 years ago were considered perfectly acceptable by the most enlightened people would horrify even mild racists of today's age

A famous quote from lincoln shows his "bad" side as well:

Quote:
I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race
As late as the 50's, serious (non-racist) scientists were arguing that blacks are a different (presumably) inferior race - 100 years before that, the level of ignorance in most areas was astounding. I don't think either lincoln, and especially jefferson were anything but very enlightened people trapped in a wrong age .TJ's actions in particular are quite brave, his stance on slavery must have earn him no friends in the neighbourhood ...

So Lincoln is then like Bosh.
