Not exactly underrated, but I think James Worthy would rule today.

Meh, people are clueless. Nobody in the league could guard him, ever. Would be interesting to see him go head to head against LBJ.

bob lanier

dude was not a power center , but a big man with an awesome touch... he would easily maintian his career average or better
On top of that no one gave him credit for being a great passer out of the high and low post.

Kelly Tripucka

Isn't it the way this thread works? Name a borderline all-star and say how he would dominate this pitiful league now?

Michael Ray Richardson would probably kill it in today's NBA. Also, if he were a player today he could have avoided the 80s drug culture that destroyed him.

With today's rules, Jeff Van Gundy.



Kelly Tripucka. How did he got from 20ppg to 10ppg the next season, to then 7ppg, to then 22.6? Never mind, looked it up.

Um, change of teams played a huge role in it. Utah with Malone and Stockton to being the "best player" on the Charlotte Hornets.

It reminds me of the quote that Scott Hastings uses about the expansion teams. He looked around at the group in Miami and said: You know you are in trouble when I'm the best player on the team.
