Slam Ranks Rip Hamilton # 35

by | Sep 28, 2006 | 4 comments

In Slam’s quest to rate the top 50 players that are most valuable to their teams, a list that put Darko at #49, they have ranked Rip Hamilton #35. If Rip is #35 and they are ranking the players most valuable to their team I am sure Chauncey’s ranking is coming but does that mean Tayshaun doesn’t even make the list? I am not sure but I am a daily reader of Slam so I guess we wait and see. I suggest you keep track of their daily ranking too, and make sure you check out all the arguing in the comments. Someone always has something to say about every single pick.

    I agree, Chauncey should make the list in a few days. Tayshaun isn’t noticed throughout the NBA much, just by us Piston fans. But he should have, if he does not, made the list.

    I have to say that tayshaun should make the list if it wasn’t for him the piston would not have even made it to the east conf. finals. Just wait and see tay will soon be notice more throughout the nba. I know the players and coaches on the other teams notice him.

    you know how slam mag is though. They have never really gave any pistons the props the deserve. Its seems that mag has really lost its touch over the years. The magazine really fell off after scoop jackson left. However, he has not been one of my favs since being at ESPN. BY the way I hate ESPN too. They took the T.O. suicide thing to a whole nother level and should be ashamed. Tabloid Journalism is all the have become. Makes me sick. Sorry ya’ll had to vent a little.
