congratulations on your mastery of google.

if you saw Ernie D play you know his rookie year, was by far his best NBA year.

loved that guy as a college player but he wasn't a good pro baller, too slow and couldn't play ironically D.

heh

but he was a great passer and fun to watch

as to the 70s Steelers I asked you twice if you saw them play, and asked you how old you were at the time, and you declined to answer.

Ernie D. destroyed his knee in his second season.  He never really recovered from that, but remained a great foul shooter.

yup

never got close to his rookie year.

but to think he was a 20 ppg 5 assisst guy for 6 years suggests "you" never saw him play.

and my iggy count just increased by 1

heh

Maravich?

Pistol Pete, who only played one more full season (his 7th in which he led the league in scoring).  Then injuries took over to disrupt his 8th season and rest of his career.

10K Points & 2,500 Assists in first 6 Seasons

Lillard  -  LBJ  -  Jordan  -  Bird
Maravich -  Archibald -  Bing -  Oscar

You gotta average 20 and 5 to get on this list over your first 6 years. 

Name the NEXT player who gets there?

I'm wondering how close Starbury got to making this list

A half-dozen Starburies:

Nearly 2,800 Assists
But 8,463 Points

Games Played: 67, 82, 49, 74, 67, 82
Would have had to average 22 in the 70 games he missed to hit 10K.  But unrealistic to expect he'd play every single game.
Miss 10 games over 6 years and he'd need to average 25 in the 60 games he missed.

Marbury had some early career ankle problems iirc.
Mid-2nd year got traded from Minny to NJ because he didn't want to co-exist with KG.

Marbury was out of the NBA at 31, and only played 24 games (for NYK) at age 30.  And then finished with 23 games for BOS.
So was still young and able to have a 2nd career in China (after sitting at home and eating Vaseline for a few years).

FYI, you can check out the stats for the 8 guys who had 10K Pts and 2.5K Ass in their first 6 years here

Jordan had the most Points (14,016) followed closely by Oscar's (13,988).  Next highest LeBJ (12,993).

Oscar had nearly 5K Assists (4,923)
Maravich and Bing barely made the cut for both categories.

Bird the only one with over 5K Rebounds.
So Bird the only player with over 10K Pts, 5K Boards, 2.5K Assist in first 6 seasons.
