H.V.S Top 100 CBB Players Honorable Mention

Posted on March 17 2019




Earlier this month our friends at SLAM put out an amazing special edition issue featuring their Top 100 Greatest College Players of All Time.  That's a huge undertaking and one they did a tremendous job of handling.  The task is nearly impossible because of the way the game has changed throughout the years.  Comparing eras is hard to do.  Really, really hard to do and SLAM did an amazing job putting together their list and giving each era its just due.  We didn't want the issue to end...although we the way it did...with an ad from 19nine.

You can order your copy for a limited time here. So HVS thought we could add to SLAM's list with an Honorable Mention type of blog. No particular order, and probably a little 90s era heavy, here are the ballers of our youth that could flat out play and deserve to be in the conversation. Honestly, it was a reason to talk about our favorite players. Enjoy...
