Which NBA match up would u love to see from a player from the past and a player from the present. IMO I would love to see Scottie Pippen vs Lebron James cuz of pippens hard nose defense guarding probably the most athletic player "at a 6'8 frame" ever to play the game in James. But what matchup would y'all like to see.....

Melo is the kind of guy who would give Pippen trouble but it would be more interesting because hed be able to go back at Melo


My Personal Favorites would be,

Shaq vs Wilt, Duncan vs Dream, DRob vs Russell, Moses vs Mikan (for the lulz) and Tmac vs Durant

Pippen vs Lebron wouldn't even be fair. If Lebron can't deal with the watered down defenders of today then there's no way he could have handled Scottie in his prime. Pippen was ridiculous.

I'd like to see a John Stockton vs Chris Paul matchup... or maybe Steve Nash vs Mark Price.....

The only one I would be interested to see is Shaq vs Wilt. That would be hell of a battle.

Prime Shaq vs Prime Wilt would be one hell of a match up. Just to add some more

Dirk vs Mchale
Kobe vs MJ
Moses vs Duncan
KAJ vs D12
Pippen vs Lebron
CP3 vs Stockton
Rose vs Payton
Russell vs Dream

Man I could go on and on but this is only what if's. Would be cool to see something like this in the future. When we invent time travel of course.

I wanted to include Rose more but I honestly have no clue where he is going to level off aka his "prime." When I think Rose-Isiah or Iverson I can't help but naturally think they'd clean Rose's clock (as all I know is the 22 yr old Derrick).

why do ppl wanna see pippen vs lebron ? lebron would kill pippen thats not even fair. sure pippen was a great defender but lebron is probably better at almost every other aspect of the game. and lebrons not exactly poor at D either.

I think lebron is a better matchup to magic. both had a 6'8- 6'9 frames both great passers both very athletic, talented gifted at both ends of the floor. that would be somthing to see.
