lol, i know. Those were his latter days, but he proved you can be a very good player with instincts, intelligence, body control and leadership. He definitely wasn't the most athletic guy, but somehow it didn't matter, he was the hakeem of point guards. Of course my favorite moment was when he was playing for the Pacers and he was on a fast break and decided to do some "showtime" shimmy shake before dropping it off to J. Rose for a dunk. this was really close to the end, when there was no chance at all he was going to be able to dunk it himself, hilarious.
