    They could because none of his other stops would take him. The Knicks might if they got his Clippers/Brave version but they wouldn’t take Knicks Mcadoo over Ewing or King/Melo.

    Clippers having healthy Walton(we are assuming all players are healthy) and Mcadoo with Leonard and George would be interesting.

    Not sure what other direction they could go. Mark Jackson at the point would be interesting but they wouldnít do it.

    Braves McAdoo was a force to be reckoned with for three years pre-injury.

    And, if we're considering prime Walton, that's a front court as good as any I can think of.

    Memphis plus both Gasol brothers? That would be a hell of a bigman trio with JJJ. Two DPOYs, 2 elite bigman passers, and all 3 can shoot with Ja and Bane

    Might they slip into the home court race behind the Warriors, Suns, and Lakers?

    I think Malone takes a hit in todayís nba, evident in guys like Drummond basically becoming unplayable with how the NBAís changed in the last ~8 years. Iím not saying heíd be unplayable himself since heís a legend, but the hit heíd take would put him below a prime Tmac. Plus Sengun is currently the only player worth a damn on the current Rockets, soÖ opportunity cost and all that. Sengun at the 4 and Dream at the 5.

    Mutombo with Jokic at the 4?

    No.

    Melo if he didn’t throw off the touches for Jokic.

    Every combo I can think of hurts either shooting or chemistry.

    Iggy fits the Nuggets well….

    Iggy and Melo?


    Murray
    Iggy
    MPJ
    Melo
    Jokic

    What else can they do?

    Ignore Melo and go for one of their even worse defensive no outside having 80s scorers?

    Take a chance on Abdul Rauf being better today?

    NVE off the bench?

    Mcdyess at the 4?

    Something with Billups?

    Alllllll the way back to David Thompson and Bobby Jones?

    I can’t think of a way to make them contend with these other teams.

    Iggy for sure altho I think a case can be made current Sixers should/would take him as a lot of their past stars are redundant with current players (AI/Harden, Embiid/Barkley/Moses). I guess youve got Dr J as well, so prob end up just going him and Barkley.

    I dont know much about older Nuggets like Alex English and KiKi Vandewegh and the like, but for more recent guys I think a perfect bench fit would actually be NeNe, who was a really talented PF/C when healthy. Obviously nowhere near as as highly ranked as all the other legends getting picked from other teams but like you said, it’s kinda slim pickins for the Nuggets. Best bet might just be to add some good depth.

    You’d have to go Mcdyess before Nene. Jokic would buy lobbing all kinds of recklessly spectacular passes up to him. He and Iggy could be a culture fit.

    Nah.. Moses would dominate. He would grab an insane number of offensive boards and dunk almost every one of them or end up at the line.

    I'm going with Moses and Dr.j on Philly with Embiid and Harden instead of Ai. AI would erase Hardens presence.

    The Bucks gotta be the run away favorite for me through with Alcindor and Ray Allen. That team would be hell in a 7 game series.

    I'm adding Russell and Bird to Boston and that's another killer.

    Wilt and Mullin to the Warriors would be crazy too, was thinking about how Webber could fit into the mix...

    What about the Clippers with Cp3 and either Blake or Elton Brand?

    Suns with Amare and Barkley or Marion?

    Lakers with Kobe and Shaq? I think Jabbar would be a better fit but I put him on the Bucks.

    Denver.....I saw Mcdyess somewhere in an earlier post. He's a good one, and I guess Melo?

    Denver could be:

    Jokic
    Bobby Jones
    Porter Jr
    Skywalker
    Murray

    Who'd New York get after Ewing? Gotta be Bernard King.

    Ewing
    Randle
    King
    Barrett
    Brunson

    Would love to see the passes Jokic makes to Skywalker. Would be a lob fest.
