    When I saw the title of the thread, I thought I'd stepped into my wayback machine without realizing it.

    Drazen was a great talent R.I.P

    Hey guys a bit off topic but I heard a rumor that a businessman by the name of John Bitove is planning to bring an NBA team team to Toronto! That is great news for Toronto sport teams! we will dominate sports for years to come!

    I also heard that there is a great progress with the Oslo Accords so we might even have peace in the middle east before the end of the 20th century! with a growing economy that is getting better from year to year, the future sure is looking promising!!

    Today I also heard a funny word "The Internet" I wonder what's that all about.

    Really?! Wouldn't it be cool if they hired someone like Isiah Thomas to run the team? He was such a great player and I'm SURE that success would translate to the boardroom. He would be the kind of hands on boss that his co-workers would love to work for.

    Don't mean any disrespect, Petrovic was a great player, but he is NOT the greatest Euro to ever play the game. That title belongs to Dirk Nowitzki. Petrovic was ridiculously talented no doubt, but I don't think you can count potential and what he COULD'VE done with more time in the league with what Dirk HAS done over the years.

    Absolutely agree -- Pau Gasol is a clearly superior over Petrovic too.

    I can see where you're coming from but what I meant was the randomness of the thread made me chuckle. The guy died 20 years ago and it was being presented like it just happened. I don't know, maybe my humor standards are below yours but I will say one thing, let he who hasn't never laughed at a fart joke cast the first stone.
