Well, this is a former UK captain(Warford), the career scoring leader(Rhoades), the best player on the best ever DHS team(Johnson), another big time scorer(Jernigan), and the best player and scorer on arguably the second best DHS team ever(Gadson).

If you have a better group, let me know. That is the subject of the thread after all.

Nice to see your true colors timmy, or should i see your view of colors. To call these men monkeys is ignorant and racist in the extreme.

I had the pleasure to play with or against each of the players I listed at least a little over the years. And believe me, they were very talented on the court so I guess I'm old enough to have a fairly educated opinion.

I'd be willing to bet that most unbiased Drakesboro fans would list at least Warford, Rhoades, and Johnson among the best. And Nathan was absolutely a monster when he played. The only one that seems questionable to me would be Doug Jernigan. He could possibly be replaced by his nephew Brian or Emichael Jones, although he only had the one exceptional year after losing four starters from the previous year, among them Brian Jernigan and Gadson.

Listing Gadson, Jernigan, and Jones would imply that that team was worldbeaters. They were at best second best in school history though. Another poster included Troy Robinson from that team too. It seems a little much.

Thx for naming my daddy in ur top 5 pick :)@timmy2-It's sad that's what u thought of the men who played for Harper on the DHS teams, especially w/ alot of them being deceased, including my dad, Johnson, & Wester, his best friend (& one of the best DHS b-ballers). Gotta love Muhlenberg County!

Top 6th man.I would say that Smith boy on the 88 team, he really carried them from the point . Also the Brooks guy from the 84 team. He put up a bunch of points.
