Top 25 of the last 25: The Snubs
After several weeks of great feedback, we were finally able to compile our final list this past weekend. Click here for the complete list.
Guess what?! Plenty of snubs, starting with one Nomar Garciaparra. If someone had told you in 2001 that a list like this would be revealed in 2013 and Nomar would NOT be on it, there’s a good chance you would give up your entire Napster library for the opportunity to punch that someone in the cheekbone.
Most people who responded had Nomar hovering around the 20-25 area.
Other glaring snubs included “The Chief” Robert Parish, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, Patrice Bergeron, Andre Tippett, Troy Brown, Curtis Martin, Randy Moss, Rodney Harrison, Dwight Evans and Jonathan Papelbon.
Random question: Why wasn’t Dennis Johnson, the great Celtics point guard included on the nominees list?
Unfortunately the late DJ always gets snubbed in these types of things. He retired in 1990, so the 1987 portion of the 1987-88 season wipes him off the list.
Who else are we forgetting? Take a look at the nominees below to see who else got the shaft. Write-in votes were welcome.
