This marks the 15th year of the SEC Basketball Legends program.

Kind of a weak year for "legends", isn't it?
thats 26 names,... ive heard of 3:
Wimp, Mashburn, & Nolan Richardson.
I remember Rahim Lockheart. He absolutely dominated Erwin Dudley in our last game of the year in our SEC championship season (2002) for like 30+ and 15 boards. That game was typical of Gottfried. We had just beat Florida, won the SEC, then threw up a dud to end the year and lost our chance for a 1 seed to avoid what would become a cinderella story in Kent State (they beat us in round of 32 and then beat Pitt in the Sweet 16).
Everytime we needed a win for a good seed in the tourney, Gottfried would blow it and we'd end up playing the tournament's cinderella story (Kent State, UW-Milwaukee) or we'd end up in a tough bracket (UCLA and Stanford even).
Not Mike Miller or Eddie Fogler?
