You mean so he could be a third option on a contender.

Hakeem - Only dude who'se simultaneously been the best hedging on picks and helping on the perimeter while also being the best rim protector in the game.These centers would just get eaten alive too.

Best player I've seen.

Probably Wilt or Russell, just soI could see them play. Third would probably be TMac just because I think he was screwed as much as any truly elite player in terms of talent put around him. Davis Thompson was really fun to watch from the little Ive seen so hed probably be up there.

This...add Walton + Magic to the list as well.

Legends from yesteryear (Russell, Wilt, Big O, West, Baylor, Pettit, Cousy, Havlicek, etc.) would be nice, but at least we have an idea of how their careers panned out. The quoted guys (plus Magic/Walton, and maybe Yao) are huge question marks as they didn't have complete careers (for different reasons).

Bernard King: Kind'a like T-Mac. Injuries screwed up his career and probably never lived up to his potential.

or

Drazen Petrovic: Dude was a baller from what I watched. Could've been one of the best European players to ever played in the NBA. Kind'a was, but he could've been greater.

or

Magic/Bird- Careers cut short.


Edit: Hard to make a decision.

Kevin Garnett so he wouldnt end up on shitty Minnesota teams his whole career, if his career started now he could get drafted somewhere decent and if it started when he was in Minny then id personally tell him to get the **** out of there

It'd be a perimeter player since today's rules favor them.

MJ

Oh, nevermind that ^.

I thought we were voting for a player who we'd pick to be on our team if we were an owner.



As a fan, I'd have Penny Hardaway's career done over.

Or if you would tell me he would get injured again, I'd go with Hakeem or Shaq, so we could get some real post players back into the league.
