Who would you consider as the best NBA player that went to UK?
Issell is the best I saw. He could score with anyone and he was a tough dude too. Mashburn is a close 2nd. If he could have been more healthy he may have surpassed Issell. Louie Dampier did mainly play in the ABA but he could have been just as good in the NBA. He could flat out shoot the ball. He was a great 3 point shooter in the ABA and the 3 point line was further back than in the NBA. I saw Dampier play in an exhibition game against the UK seniors from the 1986 team. He was about 50 then and he could still stoke it. He and Kenny Walker had to have both scored 40+ in that game. They were equally phenominal offensively that day.
