The whole overseas thing caught up with me and I have been noticeably quiet, even in the midst of the ref scandal. I still mean to throw my 2 cents in on that one, albeit later than I'd like. In the meantime you can enjoy another NBA Jam piece.
No one missed them - 5 Guys who were not even close making a NBA Jam roster
- Chris Corchiani. For some reason I have this image of him saying, "Welcome to the ACC bitch!"
- Mike Gminski - G-Man!
- J.R. Reid - I was still in elementary school when Reid hit the scene and I thought he was awesome. He then went out and proved the young me right by starting in all 82 games his rookie season with Charlotte. Did I realize that team won 19 games and lacked future stars Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning? Of course not.
- Skeeter Henry - Played in 4 NBA games and his name was Skeeter. His name was Skeeter! Okay turns out his real name was Herman.
- Acie Earl - I realize that I already wasted plenty of time on why rookies did not make it into the game. But I was 11 years old during the 1993 NBA draft and I thought Earl was a great draft pick. The fact that he dropped 40 in Boston as a Raptor only deepened the pain.
