Kind of Cool

  • KU players that played in the NBA or ABA

    Kind of cool for those KU fans that have a interest in the NBA.

  • @DoubleDD

    Great memories!

  • Fascinating list. Question: What do Cliff, Cole, Wilt, Nick, Jeff, Tarik, and Darrin have in common?

    Hint: Sasha and Julian could have joined them by not trying just one of those missed field goals…

  • Interesting that over half, 38 if I quick counted correctly have played in the league since the turn of the millenium. It might be interesting to discuss who is the most surprising on that list! I couldn’t go past 1985 or so, as probably a lot of us, but still some names there that I look at and say, whoa, he played, earned some minutes?

  • Cedric Hunter, 1 game, 1 minute played! Sure loved him when I was watching him set the Big8 record for assists.

    Ryan Robertson also played in one game, 25 minutes and was 2-6 for 4 points.

    Langford got in only 2 games. Might make the list as the most spectacular KU player with the least significant NBA contribution!

  • This fact stunned me: Danny Manning played in more games than Kirk Hinrich.

  • @bskeet

    It makes you wonder how Manning would rank if he had been healthier. Heinrich played 2 less seasons than Manning but played more minutes. In fact, other than Pierce, no other KU player played as many minutes as Captain Kirk…say in the last 30 years.

  • @JayHawkFanToo Totally agree. That was pretty amazing to see.

    The site is a treasure trove of trivia and ‘did-you-know’ surprises.
