    Any of us could put together a list of our picks for the 5 greatest basketball players in LSU history, or the best at each position, but let's have your takes on putting together 5 guys from the history of LSU basketball who together would compose the best "team" in terms of effectiveness and chemistry as a unit. Think of five players we were solid in their fundamentals, could pass as well as score, who didn't care who got the most points, who could get the most out of their teammates as well as themselves.

    Would Pete Maravich be on such a unit? How about Shaq? Maybe so, maybe not.

    My 5 would be:

    G: Ethan Martin
    G: Chris Jackson
    F: Rudy Macklin
    F: Ricky Blanton
    C: Greg Cook

    1. Geert Hammink
    2. Misha Mutadvdic
    3. Roman Rubchenko
    4. Adam Walton
    5. Pete Bozek

    Just joking...I wasn't really old enough to truly be an LSU Basketball fan during our heyday...From around 81-89, I was 3-10 years old...

    But...here goes...

    1. Chris Jackson
    2. Pete Maravich
    3. Stromile Swift
    4. Stanley Roberts
    5. Shaquille O'Neal

    Just guys that stand out in my mind from the times I followed LSU hoops...

    I think I might put these 5 on the court against any 5 from any other team in the country.

    I wanted to put Ronnie Henderson on as my 2 guard...

    Is anyone else not totally disappointed that Randy Livingston never got to develop with Ronnie Henderson? Would that have not been absolutely astounding? Those two in their primes?

    I remember Henderson leading the conference in scoring, and only being 2nd team all-conference...What a CROCK!

    I also remember him slipping to the 2nd round of the draft, and then going AWOL from the Bullets (Or was it Wizards by then?)...

    Whatever happened to Ronnie Henderson?
