Charles Barkley;Philadelphia 76ers;1988-90.

He's a big rough and tough guy and you don't put those two together. But the guy knew the game very well.


Maurice Cheeks;Philadelphia 76ers;1988-89

Jason Kidd;Dallas Mavericks;1994-96

He was as good as they come.

Sam Cassell;Houston Rockets;1993-95

Charlie Ward;New York Knicks;1996-97

It kind of makes sense. He was a quarterback. I don't know much about football, but it seems like with that position you have to know a lot of things and a lot of sets and formations.
