    Me and a few buddies were playing this the other night. We named recently retired NBA players who have been completely forgotten about since leaving the league. A lot of "Oh *****! I remember him!" moments were had. I'll start by naming a few.

    Dan Dickau
    Ira Newble
    Jake Tsakalidis


    Who else?

    I think two big name players that are kind of forgotten (as far as not being mentioned often)

    John Stockton and Tim Hardaway.

    I don't think Kirk Snyder was forgotten. Isn't he in prison for brutally assaulting his next-door neighbor?

    [edit] oh, I just saw he was actually released from jail and is now playing professionally in Canada.
