Thanks for the updates. I knew I missed some. And just for informative purposes, Animal actually played 7 seasons in the NBA. Keep the corrections coming. I would assume that we had at least one player from 1998-2001 play in the NBA, but I couldn't find any.

I can go through my old rosters sometime and make sure that you have everyone who played in the NBA. (unless that's where you found some of the information)

I can't think of any more players, but there could be some.

EDIT: Add Maurice Baker to 2006-2007.

When I first saw this post I was thinking about Herren, but then I forgot to look to see if he was on there.

I haven't got time to check my rosters and I won't be able to tonight. Maybe tomorrow...

I'll help with this tomorrow too. USBASKET should have some answers.

I actually have some of Michael "Animal" Smith's NBA cards. He only played what, 2 or 3 games here? I think I remember him getting ejected once.

I hardly remember him so I'm sure he only played a couple games here. I'm not really sure how many though.

Yeah, hopefully. We've got so much talent on our team. We were just too sloppy tonight. If we take care of the ball better, make more free throws, get defensive rebounds, and have better refs (sorry, I just have to complain about them; they were horrible), then we'll do well.
