These players retired for a reason. Malone, Rodman, and Robinson were clearly losing a huge step when they called it quits. It has been several YEARS since then. More time has passed between Jordan nailing the game-winner in Utah to his Washington days than his Washington days to 2007. And he was only averaging 20 points that year.
Their opponents would be accused of running up the score in the 2nd quarter. Half the team would re-retire one week into the season due to injury, and the other half would join them at the All-Star Break. It'd be the first time an NBA team was contracted at Mid-Season.
They'd maybe win one game, but probably not. Let's get real people.
Lol, I feel the same way... I'll be generous and say that this team could win 5 games, but that's pretty much it...
