The 2 guys that stand out to me are Chamberlain and Magic. Would Wilt dominate NBA front-courts today as he did throughout the 60's? How would he do facing 7 footer after 7 footer each night as opposed to the 6 foot 8 centers that existed back in the day?

With Magic, you have a one of a kind point guard. It'd be interesting to see how his game translates into this era's style and system (s).

Honorable mentions: Jordan, Barkley, Oscar & Erving.

I really want to watch Wilt Chamberlain in today's game...George Mikan too if I could, regardless, every other Laker Legends that I grew to know and like while watching the Lakers Dynasty unveil in 2000 onwards.

As for other notable legends in the game all these 60 years....I dunno man, I wouldn't even mention Jordan at least until my craving for Laker legends have been satisfied. ;)

I want to see Kobe with his afro again. :lol:

But seriously, I would want to see Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson, Kareem (basically all the old Laker players) and then probably some random player no one talks about like Kenny Smith.
