But ten years I think thats pushing it. James teammate in Cleveland is guard Anthony Parker. Candace Parker is Anthonys sister; she was a standout hoopster at the University of Tennessee before the Los Angeles Sparks selected her with the first overall pick in the 2008 WNBA Draft. Anthony Parker seemed perplexed as to why the league commissioner would even suggest that a woman is capable of playing in the NBA. First of all, I dont see why, other than to say that a woman can do it, said Parker, 34, who was originally drafted by the New Jersey Nets with the 21st overall selection in the 1997 draft. But for long-term No way. They cant take the pounding, the wear and tear, the quickness, the strength. Its not possible. A woman will not succeed competing in the NBA. Nevertheless, thanks to David Stern, fans will be forced to discover this through experience. Blazers Center Greg Oden is an unfortunate bustRon Artest is an alcoholic lunatic. I am not old enough to remember the TV Western “Bonanza” starring Lorne Greene, but I have fond memories of the Bruins “Bonanza” line. One of the most prolific scoring lines in Boston Bruins history consisted of Adam Oates (Adam), Joe Juneau (Little Joe) and Dmitri Kvartalnov (Hoss). The ’92-’93 NHL season was very special in Boston (the regular season, anyways). The team just came off a Wales Conference sweep at the hands of the Mario led Pittsburgh Penguins. They finished second in the Adams Division and had playoff series victories over Buffalo and Montreal. A successful season Yes and No. The Wales Conference Finals is not a Stanley Cup championship. They needed to pick up the offensive slack in the ’92-’93 season. Cam Neely was recovering from a knee injury afflicted by goon Ulf Samuelsson during the playoffs. He was only able to play 13 games due to injury.

That left a major void in the Bruins offensive attack. Center Adam Oates needed a winger to feed, but he also needed to put the puck in the net. Who would step in and step up The Bruins drafted winger, Joe Juneau 81st overall in the '88 draft out of RPI Juneau went on to play for the 1992 Canadian Olympic team. After the conclusion of the Olympics, Juneau joined the Bruins at the tail end of the ’91-’92 season. Juneau never spent a day in the minors and he didn’t miss a beat in the NHL. He scored 5 goals and 14 assists in 19 games. He also had a strong post-season by adding 12 points in 15 playoff games. The future was bright for the young winger from Quebec. Juneau would be put on the top line with Cam Neely and Adam Oates to open the season. Neely was evidently not himself He was hampered by effects of the knee on knee hit.
His body was not going to hold up for the long haul. Who would take his place on the top line with Oates and Juneau Russian sniper, Dmitri Kvartalnov was taken with 16th overall pick in the 1992 draft Kvartalnov was not your typical rookie. He had already played hockey for 10 years in Russia and was 26 years old. Kvartalnov was playing for the IHL’s San Diego Gulls where he scored 60 goals and 118 points in 77 games. He seemed like the perfect solution to off set the absence of Cam Neely. The newly formed “Bonanza” line paid instant dividends. Dmitri “Hoss” Kvartalnov scored a point in his first 14 games in the NHL. He had 12 goals and 10 assists from October 8, 1992 to November 12, 1992. This streak stood until 2007 when it was broken by Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin. The line just meshed Oates and Juneau were masters of the pass Kvartalnov was the shifty sniper.
