Always thought Ben Moore was a bit of an unsung hero for those Larry Brown teams. He was always a pretty versatile guy and did a lot of things well...was just never a very good mid-range shooter which might be all that has held him back from being a significant contributor for some NBA team

Got the start and played more minutes than anyone else. That might be a good sign.
