Pippen, to see how he'd match up against Lebron.

MJ vs Kobe?

Isiah vs Westbrook?

The obvious guys in: Kareem, Magic, Bird, Hakeem, Wilt, Russel, Cousy...

Someone else mentioned David Thompson, and I'd love to see him in today's style of play, along with Gervin.

Bring in prime Duncan, so he can play 42 mins a game and absolutely destroy the league. And while we're at it, let's give Shawn Kemp a shot to take Griffin's "youtube master" title away from him.

hmmm it would probably see someone whose career I didn't get to see. I'm gonna have to go with Magic, even though I got to see the end of his career.

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.

There are no guarantees. But Penny would likely fair better today even with the same injury. Apparently he was playing injured when he should have been receiving treatment.

Inb4Kobe?? On page 3??



I gotta go with Shaq; he'd shine in any era. As long as you do not have a complete fool for a GM it wouldn't be too hard to build a contending team around Shaq. If this scenario implies you get him for his whole career, you are basically garuenteed like 3 rings; unless you have the WOAT gm.

Edit: Oh wait, kengriff picked Kobe

Larry Bird.

With today's medical advances and the way the game is reffed, Larry would destroy these people with maybe half of the athleticism at his disposal.

D. Wade?! Let him start his career and go through injury-free? Dude would definitely, if with the right team, be a top 15 player of All-Time.

This is idiotic. Doesn't matter how good he would be today, the only thing that matters is how impactful he was for his era.
