    Which former Cyclone had the best pro career?

    Wasn't sure which board to put this on but just wanted everyone's opinion on which former Cyclone, football, basketball or both had the greatest pro career. Football I've always been partial to Matt Blair. Basketball I'm not sure but I think Jeff Hornacek was always underrated.

    Mike Myers, 13 years and four post seasons. Rockies and Diamondbacks gave him some pretty good money for a few years just to face Barry Bonds

    Bob Locker, 12 years, three post seasons. One of the best releivers in baseball in the late 60's

    Didn't Bob Locker pitch for the A's when they won 3 straight World Series in the early 70's?

    NBA: Hornacek....not sure this is really a debate.
    NFL: Yes, Blair.

    Nate is right. Michael Jordan overshadowed anything anybody did during that era.

    So what does any of that have to do with which cyclone basketball player had the best NBA career?

    Gotta be Hornacek, then probably Mayor and Jamaal.

    Shouldn't you be back among your fellow mouth breathers talking about how much "ISWho" sucks?

    Zaid Abdul-Azizz. I looked up some old stats for ISU and he really was a good player for ISU. If I remember correctly he originally went by the name of Don Smith. I didn't even realize that he played for Iowa State until I was looking up the old stats. Does anybody remember where he was drafted, round?

    I think it was #5 overall (see my wiki link above).

    Obviously Hornacek is top but I think Tinsley had a better overall career than the Mayor. Fred barely played (except for 2 years in Chicago) and averaged only like 5pts/2 assists/3 rebounds a game.

    Tinsley averaged almost 30 mpg and had 9.5 ppg and 6 assists/game. Tinsley was also a starter most of his career on a pretty good Pacers team.

    Football I would say maybe Ellis Hobbs out of the people I actually watched play in my lifetime. Looking at Blair's stats/accomplisments he probably was the best all time though.
