11) malone9975 - Magic Johnson, Buck Williams, Wes Unseld, Grant Hill, Willis Reed, Brooks Thompson, Joel Przybilla
This team is clearly the Cosby Show.
Magic is Bill Cosby, the main star and the guy that holds it all together, although Malone could make it more fun for the rest of us by using the 95-96 version of Magic (wait for it)…………yea that would make Magic Fat Albert.
Buck Williams is the perfect Theo, his high turnovers and fouls always seeming to get himself and others into trouble.
Grant Hill is Denise, or the really hot chick. Do a sort for 25% ast, 20% dreb over 2000 min and only he and Jason Kidd come back, and Hill is the only guy in the sim that can boast this with a 50% efg, (side note when I was putting together my draft board based on the past three ODL drafts I was amazed that no one drafted Hill.) Unfortunately, Grant Hill is also like the real life actor Lisa Bonet, his lack of ANY threes is the equivalent of her RL porn scandal.
Wes Unseld is Clair the second person responsible for the family and the more down to earth one. Oh and Wes’ RL career as a coach and GM is like Phylicia Rashad’s RL marriage to Bobby Moore, i.e., Ahmad.
Willis Reed and Joel Przybilla are like the other characters that no one can remember, yea we know there were more kids than just Denise, Theo, and Rudy, but we have no clue what their names are unless we google it. Willis and Joel are like that for this team, they will do the dirty jobs, but there will not be many episodes where their antics are the main focus.
Finally Brooks Thompson is Rudy, the actor didn’t get paid as much as the rest of the cast but she was unique in that she played the cute character, just like Brooks will be giving this team some much needed threes.
Hey, the Cosby Show had a run where it was the #1 show on tv for five years running, but it also dropped to #18 in its last season. This team looks to be somewhere in-between. This is my first ODL rodeo, so maybe the significant lack of threes won’t be a problem, but I’d venture to guess much like the last season of Cosby, Malone won’t be bringing home any Emmy’s with this squad.
