He was easily the athletic equal of anyone playing the game since and scored in buckets.

Top Starting Five (based on how they would play as a team, not the five best):

1. West
2. Jordan
3. Pippen
4. Rodman
5. Russell

This would be the triangle offense run to perfection, with Paxson/Kerr replaced by one of the best shooters ever and Cartwright/Longley replaced with the best defensive center ever.

Okay, enough of the basketball hijacking of this thread.

Uh, one more hijack. Rodman? Do you really think that team is better with the Worm than with the Big Fundamental, Shaq (Russel could play the 4 in a pinch), Pippen is a decent inclusion, since he was a stellar defender in his prime and could obviously play with Jordan well. But Rodman?

FNL/Remember the Titans/We Are Marshall/etc etc etc. are all the same film and format only with different actors. Regardless of whether or not you like Keanu "Replacements" is a funny film. I liken it to the "Slapshot" of football films.

I never said it wasn't a pot/kettle situation. And besides, I was picking bad movies on purpose; it's car-crash mesmerizing to see Freddie Prinze Jr. act, or that kid cock his arm back in Rookie of the Year.

Replacements is pretty amusing, but I guess I find FNL better than Remember the Titans (never saw We Are Marshall) perhaps because it's fairly grounded in the book and I can sense the realism in a way that others didn't seem to possess. If I was on a deserted island, I would choose Replacements only because it's a funnier film ("Shane Falco... from the Sugar Bowl?") but I do think FNL was a better movie.

Wish I could stick full metal jacket in there

I personally would rank 2001 ahead of the others

I would put "Has your Jantzen arrived yet?" threads at #1 or #2. As far as I can tell, Jantzen's production and delivery schedule is completely random, so no conclusions can be drawn from anecdotal evidence.

SF (non-CE) threads most likely to result in a flame war:
1. Watches
2. Thom Browne
3. Paying for dates
4. Audio equipment
5. Any thread in which Jon posts

"Salton" should be #1 just for his snort.
