Just closing thoughts on these posts, the whole point in them was that they served to provoke thought, to challege the mindless ranting and arbitrary opinions offered on here. Honestly I do not necesarily agree with everything I stated but wanted to challenge people because they were proposing generatonally- charged and system-influenced opinions. So I thought I would do the same and then let it sit awhile. The challenge was to think beyond the offered standards. Records and accomplishments are definitely legitimate and normal measures, but other measures do apply. Often the system tries to make everyone swallow a pill and be the defining standard as to verity. The key is to think why you stated your opinion and put some thought behind it. Only a few people did and its obvious here, there is not much consideration of history in the posts which is sad. The lists really mean nothing, actually they really need to be bigger if at all. The younger generation definitely have guys that could play with any guys on the lists. You could go through and take 50 players young and old mix em all up and come out 50/50. The coaching isn't questionable, the've posted winning records, Tyler Evans does stand out among the top guys ever he has a championship to prove it, no one can argue with that or comes close. The truth is that everyone who gets upset about these discussions are doing the very same thing they are getting upset about. Bottom line it's all conjecture and none of this really matters.

It's an honor to be mentioned with any of these fine gentlemen, with the inclusion of Terry Morrison. My very favorite during this period was Tom Sykes. All the best, Scott Allen

I graduated in the eighties; no one from that era can match the earlier teams of the 70's. Sounds like Ted Lewis days are being blurred with organized sports. Don't get me wrong, there were a lot of great ballers that played at TedLewis back in the day, but most of the best were not from Pickaway County. To include Travis Stonerock as one of the best makes the list laughable. His dad Tim outplayed him when he was in his forties. Scott Allen - went on to play at Muskingum - division 3. Scott Rowland should have dominated for CHS in the late eighties, he had the nicest shot, but was too unselfish. If my memory serves me right, Teays Valley and Shane Roese was the top Pickaway team / player during the late eighties.

What none of you are grasping is the mindset....Street vs Organized. Ive played many a game with David and he has heart for days Ive seen him myself run down layups from guys twice his size. Measure the heart and the fight before you do anything else. He does have a determination to win. Ill be real with you. You are asking for the best? The best is more than just stats, I would take David on my team for the simple fact is hes got heart and a drive that cant be beat. Same thing with Chris Keaton aka goof troop... hes not the best but he has heart and will work till his last ounce of sweat is gone. Im sorry but you gotta be honest there are players that rely soley on size and lack fundamentals aka "Chris D" or "Ignacio" aka the mexican dood from back in the day neither of them have a fire or fundamentals to back up there game only physical size. Again you cant measure heart and Wolf has it... So talk all the shit you want about whos the best but again you should ask whos got the best heart for the game in Cville.....

In school I'd have to say Bobby Taylor was one of the best along with Travis Flectcher. 2 Great BALL players... But at the park I'd say David wolf and Eric Mcyntire. I can't play basketball I get to mad so I just watch. Just my opinion though.
