    Jerry West would've been Stephen Curry with a three-point line. By all accounts, he had the range. Perimeter play would have also opened up his passing and driving lanes.

    Arvydas Sabonis. He shot 37% from deep his first 2 years in the NBA after coming over as a shell of himself.

    I think today they'd go the exact opposite direction. He'd be asked to bulk up and play stretch 4. He was a double double player for his career, and I believe he played a lot of PF later in his career after he hurt his back. He didn't have the athleticism to keep up with SFs in today's NBA, but he would be the MOST skilled big man in the league, hands down. I can't see him missing the HOF.
    Bird would be better today than he was in the 80's. You are right, he would likely be asked to be a hybrid big forward, but he would dominate today, and his 3 ball would be much better than it was.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Charles would be more Toine' than anything, when it came to shooting from long distance.

    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    I know his NBA career is a shadow of his college career, but he had a solid career as a starter/rotation player, and he was versatile enough that teams usually wanted him.

    I mean... he played until he was 35, started nearly 700 games out of around 850, has a career ppg average in double digits over 13 seasons.

    He wasn't an all-star, but he certainly had a career. And frankly, his college career alone warrants a HOF selection.

    It is crazy to think that washed-up chubby Sabonis did THAT well in the NBA. If he had come over when he was 24... man...

    That guy was amazing.

    It's insane to think the 90's Blazers who made the Finals and had Drazen Petrovic before they realized how good he was, could have also had Arvydas Sabonis had he come over earlier.

    That team would have beat the MJ Bulls at least once for a title.
