come on man !!!

so what if you can not draft Jordan-

I've heard there was basketball before 1985 - (true?)

I'm ready to use some of the great pioneers and kick @$$ -
and I'm ready to use players from Cincinnati, St. Louis, Minneapolis, and Syracuse -
yea they all had solid teams back in the day....

Looks like we are going to need to rely on new blood -

IF they are not scared of the challenge of building a team of old school players in an old school era-
Chamberlin, Bill Russell, Bob Cousey,
Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Elgin Baylor, Havlicheck, Bob Petttt -
Walt Bellamy, Bailey Howell, Sam and K.C. Jones, Jerry Lucas

where would big George Mikan fit in?

looks like a hell of a good challenge to me.
