    1. Brandon Roy & Greg Oden - this could have easily been a dynasty. If not for their injuries, they and LMA might already have a ring.

    2. Tracy McGrady & Yao - pretty much the same thing as above.

    3. Jeremy Lin - if he was given Harden role in Houston, he would have been an MVP candidate now. Same thing with Charlotte. Mind boggling how these teams don't recognize the lovely treasure that Jeremy Lin is on-court and off-court.

    What do you think are some of the other bigggest what ifs?

    Seriously, I was about to post that, then I thought "what if I don't post it, will someone?" Sure enough you did. Repped

    He got rep on it, so it isn't stupid. Flawless logic is flawless.

    What if Steph Curry didn't sprain those rubber band ankles every few weeks? Oh, this.

    all of them played in China at some point in their career except injured Roy

    Yao and Jeremy in the beginning
    Tmac and Oden at the end of their career

    What if Kobe was never traded to Lakers?

    I believe he will be the nba scoring leaders by now but never win a ring.

    What if Morey was a good drafter instead of a mediocre to poor one

    What if we didn't draft busts like White and Dekker and others and instead drafted the likes of Kawhi and Draymond Green when they were available

    Anthony Bennett going #1. At the time, people thought the Cavs were wasting their pick on someone who was really a #5-#10. Turns out he's more of a third-rounder.
