    Fletch, Rich Brunson played the point guard spot and Aaron McKie and Eddie Jones were in 3 guard setup for Temple during the mid 90’s, My man(Facts), Also, Rory Grimes(5’9 cat from the Bronx), Played the point guard spot with Steve Burtt at shooting guard for Iona during the early/mid 80’s, My man(Facts), Fletch, Ricky Moore played in

    The backcourt with Khalid El-Amin playing the point and Rich Hamilton in a 3 guard setup(Like the Temple cats during the mid 90’s), For Connecticut during the late 90’s, My man, Fletch, Mark Wade and Freddie Banks were a nice backcourt for UNLV during the mid 90’s too, My man, Also, Karl Hobbs and Earl Kelly was a very nice backcourt

    With, Vern Giscombe(5’9 cat forTolentine HS in the Bronx in 1980), Coming off the bench to sub for either Karl Hobbs or Earl Kelly for Connecticut during the early 80’s, Also, Craig Hodges and Ricky Williams(6’2 cat from Buffalo,New York), Were one of the top backcourts in the country during the late 70’s for Long Beach State(Facts).

    Fletch, Mark Jackson’s best years at St.John’s were played in the backcourt with Matt Brust(Who had a brother by the name of Chris Brust, Who was a 2nd team HS All-American out of Babalyon HS on Long Island in 1978 and Chris Burst played for North Carolina during the late 70’s/early 80’s), Fletch, Mark Jackson came off the bench his Freshman and sophomore years(1983-1985) trying to develop into a reliable cat behind Mike Mo , So, How can you list Mark Jackson and Chris

    Mullin as an all-time great backcourt(Exhibit A:Unless you throw Mike Mo as Chris Mullin’s backcourt partner during the early/mid 80’s, My man/LOL), Also, We’re building on backcourt tandems, Not backcourt trio’s, My man/LOL.
