I enjoyed the NHL thread about a random guy you remember from some point and time, so how about an NBA one?

Kevin Porter is one of the great forgotten NBA stars of the 1970s. He played with the Bullets from 1972-73 to 1974-75, then for the Pistons from 1975-76 to early in 1977-78, spent most of 1977-78 with the Nets, then went back to the Pistons for 1978-79, and finished up with the Bullets again from 1979-80 to 1982-83.

During those 11 seasons, Porter led the NBA in assists 4 times and at one time held the single game assist record, but never made an All Star Game and has largely been ignored historically.

Speaking of Bobby Jones and George McGinnis, they were traded for one another after the 1977-78 season with Jones going to the 76ers and McGinnis going the other way to the Nuggets. Big George had been an All Star level performer with the Pacers in the ABA and then in the NBA for the Sixers. He averaged 22.6 ppg and 11.4 rpg in his first year in Denver, but then fell apart and was out of basketball after the 1981-82 season. In Philly, Jones ended up winning a title in 1982-83 and was 1st team All Defense 6 times and 2nd team on another occasion.

Barely remember him.  My dad used to talk about how good he was.  I think he got into some fisticuffs with the Pistons coach (Herb Brown maybe?).

Fat Level was awesome.

Swen Nater played for the clippers

Chuck Nevitt was like 7'5" and was the 12th man on the Pistons

never heard of Ernie DiGregorio

the Sixers got the better end of that trade for sure.  McGinnis and DR.J could get along and Jones was a shutdown defensive foward and could score 15ppg. i think that Jones even made the all star team, even though he was a back up for the Sixers.
