Alonzo Jamison, B.H. Born, Terry Brown, Jo Jo White, and/or Danny Manning.

I would just like to see T.J.s mustache again. Not sure about him playing though.

TJ is a successful high school coach in the tampa, fl area. I read a nice article about him a couple of years ago as he was sending his daughter off to play ball at the Div 1 level.

Oh Victor Mitchell, wasn't he like 6-10 295lbs. and Tyke Peakock , 5-11 and could jump 7ft in track.

In order: Wilt, Manning, Paul Pierce, Sherron.

Actually play? I'd choose Pierce. Dunk contest? I'd love to see Julian again.

mae 3 years, 10 months ago

true. i remember that. exactly why i'd choose pierce. if you're a fan of dunk contests though you'll see a couple people miss and play it off. doesn't mean they aren't spectacular when they pull it off. it means they were trying for something amazing and failed the first time.

seeing older folks play might be a moneymaker, but the younger crowd would be bored and probably couldn't afford tickets. i would hate to see this be an alumni fundraising event. it should be about the players coming back, having some fun in a pick up game, with a super interested crowd at allen.

Too bad he only just commited and then declared himself for the NBA.

So, now that NBA players can choose their teams (lebron), what would happen if KC built a stadium for them alongside the soccer, baseball, racing and all that? could you imagine the ku players that would want to play for that team? think about the local players, they would be lock recruits.

Too many choices to choose from...

Ron Kellog, Calvin Thompson, would be nice to have Archie Marshall to get recognized too.

Wilt. He was the best. Since that won't happen, I'd like to see: Ostertag bang against Cole Aldrich. Jacque Vaughn Danny Manning

I'd also like to see if Kenny Gregory can still fly.

coolmarv 3 years, 10 months ago

Danny was a better college player but I think Pierce has proven to be the better NBA player.

I guess I would rather see some of the guys who can still play. Pierce, Chalmers.

Bring back Turgeon The SURGEON! Too fun to watch him run circles around the big guys. For all you complainers, the question didn't say who would you like to see play that is still alive or doesn't have knees that are shot. It's a fantasy team - so fantasize! (Wait, does that mean I just fantasized about Mark Turgeon?)
