I am glad you put Bill Sharman in there, because he really deserves to be on the list, but people forget how incredible a basketball player, coach, contributor and legend he is. Bill was one of the greatest foul shooters and jum shooters of all time, and was the leading scorer on two of Boston's cahmpionship teams! 8 times an all star, named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history (1996) and one of only 3 men to be inducted to the Naismith basketball hall of fame as both a player (1975) and coach (2004). He also of course is known for the 1972 championship that he lead the Lakers to, while winning the Coach of the Year award and guiding the Lakers to a record 33 game winning streak. But Bill Sharman also invented the shootaround during this legendary and magical 1972 season. He has collected over 15 championships as either a player, coach or executive in professinal basketball. He was responsible for the Lakers' 1980 1sr pick, where he drafted Magic Johnson. He also played profesional and minor league baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers! He is a winner! He wins at all levels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
