I've been in the FORUMS since 2002 and ive read a lot of dream match ups in boxing, basketball etc...

and its crazy :D ... people will defend their heroes ... totally disregarding logic, technicality and perspectives. people will just go with their emotions and launch barrages of claims upon claims based on conclusions usually written by the sports media (who has their agenda by the way ) on why their heroes will do this and that.


retired NBA players are usually logical specially those employed by the networks. their comments are usually on point...BUT i have never encountered a comment or an 'explanation' so technically sound that i think this honest comment is the best answer ( Not who will win ) to a Hypotethical dream matchup between a past and present basketball team.

“Man for man, then and now, the skills we had then and the skills they have now? I’ll be honest, I think they would have beat us. C’mon,” Arnaiz said.

But the former Toyota and Gilbey’s Gin star guard who was best remembered for his back-court partnership with Robert Jaworski has a quick follow-up.

“But I tell you, whoever they are now and whoever we were, if we have the same access to the training they had, if we're all born in the same generation and play together, we probably would have beat them,” Arnaiz said. ... utch-picks
