I was thinking that since its Christmas so if Santa could give me my top team to play UL on the 29th from past or present players at UK who would be playing the Cards in that game. My 5 are: PG--Rajon Rondo SG--D. Anderson SF--A. Walker PF--A. Davis C--D. Issel.I know Issel may be a controversial pick but he was a great player and UKs alltime leading scorer. Rondo, do I need to say anything about why I chose him. Davis, best to come along at UK in a long time. Derek Anderson was IMO was the best athlete at SG KYs ever had and barring his injury in "97" Pitno would have had 2 in a row. Antoine Walker was just IMO one of the most complete players ever to play at KY. I had a tough time between Walker and Mashburn and you really couldnt go wrong with either so I flipped a coin and Walker won. With 3 bench players 1 would be Mashburn of course and Kyle Macy and Sam Bowie. Now tell me who Santa could put on your team w/the 3 bench players so UK can kick the crap out of UL.

just give me the '96 team hands down, end of story. Greatest ever
C Dan Issel
F Tayshaun Prince
F Jamal Mashburn
G Tony Delk
G Rajon Rondo
(And when you leave Cliff Hagan, Ralph Beard, Ron Mercer, Kidd-Gilchrist, Cotton Nash, Pat Riley, Jack Givens and Frank Ramsay all off that list after giving them serious consideration, you know you've got something to work with.)
PG Wayne Turner
SG Jeff Sheppard
F Jamal Mashburn
F Tayshaun Prince
C Anthony Davis
No wrong answer to this one. This would be my favorite team though.
Just saw the 3 bench players, here are those...

Thats right, no matter who you choose they would tear the UL Cards to pieces.
SG- Dampier (been told with 3 point line he would be our leading scorer in history)
SF - MKG
PF - Mash
C - Davis
Bench: Issel, Sky Walker, Delk,Wall, Patterson, Troy McKinley (was my favorite as a kid), Meeks
C- Rob Lock
PF- Melvin Turpin
SF- Derrick Hord
PG- Roger Harden
PG- Travis Ford
PF- Ant Davis
That would be my team.
PG - Rondo/Wall/Bogans
SG - Meeks/Delk/Fitch
SF - Prince/MKG/Daniels
PF - Patterson/Hayes
C - Davis/Cousins
We get 13 right? Haha. I could go on and on and on.
These would be the favorites from my era.
I can't believe everyone has left out the greatest point guard we have ever had.......Saul Smith!!!! lol j/k
I would take...
I loved Macarty he was clutch. When I think of past UK teams I always go back to the LSU game when we where down 32 in the second half and I can't get help but to love Macarty :)
It seems to me that demonstrated success against UL might be a factor.
would be on my team somewhere for that reason alone.
Im glad you brought up that game with LSU because that was the greatest comeback I have ever seen in any sort or at any level. There may have been better comebacks but I havent seen it. I had that taped on old VHS and I wore that tape out watching it over and over. I truly believe that game and how LSU lost is what drove Dale Brown to get out of the coaching profession.They caught fire with about 9-12 minutes left in the 2nd half and never cooled off. I still cant believe they won that game in the manner they did. Walter has been under rated as a player all these years IMO and so was Tony Delk.
Dampier was a great player and could shoot the ball. I also think that when dampier was a freshman his whole freshman team could have beaten most teams starting five of upperclassmen.
