Old School TTM B.J. Armstrong Chicago Bulls PG

When I was a kid I had a lot of fun sending cards out in the mail to get TTM Autographs. Some of the guys I can remember getting were:
  • Dale Ellis
  • Karl Malone
  • Dennis Smith (Who would send you 3 cards of his own Autographed)
  • Don Nelson
  • Dolph Schayes
 Here is a picture of one that I dug up the other day. Former Chicago Bulls Point Guard B.J. Armstrong.

Be sure to check out Sports Card Radio's TTM Fan Forum Section.
Forum member Cubsfan129 has had tremendous success over the years getting TTM. Check out his thread.
Cubsfan129 will be making an appearance on Sports Card Radio in December to talk about his collection.

Tyreke Evans PG/SG Sacramento Kings Part II

Take back everything negative I said about Tyreke Evans, Sacramento Kings SG/PG, in an earlier blog post dated October 21, 2009. I actually got to watch the Kings vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game on November 10 which the Kings won 101-98.

The kid can flat out ball. Wow. Tremendous footwork. Above average passer. Seems to already have a grasp on the pick and roll game which is a staple in every NBA teams offense. Great one-on-one player. Maybe one of the best one-on-one players I've seen come into the league in quite awhile. Can play in the half court, and can also lead the break. His long arms allows him to make scoop layups with ease around defenders. As with most young players, his jump shot needs a little work, but that is usually one aspect of NBA players game that gets better over time. Is he Dwayne Wade?  Of course not. Wade, to me, is more athletic, and at this point has a better range on his jump shot. Tyreke's range appears to be inside 20 feet, with the ability to hit the occasional three-pointer. Again, his range should improve over time.

There were times during the game where they would just give Tyreke the ball and watch him go one-on-one with a usually helpless Thunder defender. He got to the hoop with ease. He is able to draw fouls that only the good offensive players get. Wow. Wow. Wow. I STRONGLY suggest getting in on some of his Rookie Cards as soon as possible. He is a Rookie of the Year candidate and will get a lot more attention once people around the league realize this kid can flat out do everything on the court. Once he gets his outside shot going, LOOK OUT!  I will happily eat crow on this one, and have already added him to my fantasy basketball team.

Stephen Curry PG/SG Golden State Warriors

You must have lived in a cave to not know what Stephen Curry did while attending Davidson. CBS made him the darling of March Madness. His Father, Dell, had one of the smoothest jump shots I've ever seen. His son is not far behind in the jump shot category.

Stephen is currently starting for the Golden State Warriors. The NCAA leader in scoring last year is finding it hard to find shots on a Warriors team that includes 'me first' players such as Corey Maggette, Stephen Jackson, and Monta Ellis. The thing that surprises me about Curry is how well he can pass the ball. It makes me think that Curry will be able to stick at Point Guard throughout his NBA career. At some point, I think he will also get enough shots up to average in the 15-20 ppg range.

The Warriors aren't going to do much this season. I would also imagine Curry will only put up modest numbers meaning getting an affordable card of his very likely as the season progresses. It's worth the small investment because I could see Curry playing in the league for a long time.

Louis Williams PG 76ers

Louis Tyrone Williams got put on my radar screen last season. He averaged a career high 12.8 ppg coming off the bench behind Andre Miller. With Miller gone, Louis is now the starting PG in Philadelphia. He's off to a hot start this season, 'getting his' with 17 ppg in his first 4 games.

Williams was a 2nd round pick in the 2005 NBA Draft. His game reminds me a lot of two other former 2nd round draft picks, Nick Van Exel and Gilbert Arenas. Louis is a guy who could shoot up the charts in popularity among NBA fans, and his card values could pop as well.
