OFFICIAL NBA PLAYERS BORN IN DELAWARE POWER RANKINGS
1. Walt Hazzard. I’ve never heard of this dude, but he was a one-time All-Star scoring 24 PPG per game for the Sonics in the 67-68 season, their first season as an NBA franchise. There was a dude on that team named Plummer Lott. LOL (lots of laughs)
2. Donte DiVincenzo. I feel comfortable putting DDV (can I call him that?) at the number two spot because the rest of the Delaware-born players suck, and DDV is playing a real role on a team that looks poised for a real championship run.
3. Joey Graham. I remember he had really big muscles, but couldn’t shoot. Like a really really bad Corey Maggette.
4. Stephen Graham. I remember he had really big muscles, but couldn’t shoot. Like a really really bad Joey Graham.
5. Terence Stansbury. He was drafted fifteenth overall in the Michael Jordan draft but only played three seasons. Nobody talks about him being a bust because Sam Bowie was in that draft.
6. A.J. English. He averaged almost 10 PPG per game for the Bullets across two seasons in the early 90s. If he was Alex English’s brother or something, I would put him higher on this power ranking, but he’s not, as far as I can tell.
7. Ronnie Murphy. Played eighteen games for the Blazers in 1988. Shot below 30% from the field in an era where everybody’s field goal percentages were in the 50’s.
8. Dexter Boney. Eight games for the 96-97 Suns. Didn’t do much. People probably called him “The Boner”.
9. Trevon Duval. Hey, I remember this guy! He played six total minutes for the Bucks last season. Maybe he even shared the court with DiVincenzo for some of those minutes. He was a highly touted prospect coming out of high school and could maybe still make it in the league, but this power ranking is based on NBA careers, not theoretical NBA careers.
