With the Mavs recent visit to the Barclays Center, I've seen several people both here and on twitter say VC was their favorite Net ever (not that it is surprising at all), so I'm just curious to know who's the most popular Net among the members of our community. Not necessarily the best player, but the one you liked & enjoyed watching most.
For me, if I have to choose just one, I'll go with K-Mart, tho VC is a close second. Martin wasn't the most talented player out there, but he was pretty damn entertaining and exciting to watch at both ends of the floor, and like Frank said he was our emotional leader, he played with such a passion it was contagious, both for his teammates & the crowd. Loved the special connection there was between him & the crowd at the Meadowlands. I think he might've been NJ's biggest fan favorite ever. I've seen no other player revv up those Jersey crowds the way he used to. I remember the first time he came back after signing with Denver and the reception was electric. He even did his pregame ritual in front of "K-Mart's crew", like in the good ol' days.
Obviously, I can only talk about the players I've seen play. I've been a Nets fan since the early '90s, so I didn't get to see some Nets greats like Dr J or Buck.
