who would you have wanted to see with a clean bill of health?

examples:

Derrick Rose
Grant Hill
Greg Oden
Penny Hardaway
Brandon Roy
????

For me it's Anfernee Hardaway. He was reaching potential GOAT status before his debilitating injuries.

Even with Greg's unprecedented history of injuries, he's about to win 6 consecutive NBA championships. Imagine if he had been healthy his entire career.

Roy because he's still quite young.

Rose can still come back.

1. Grant Hill.
2. Oden--All the hype coming out of high school. Looked poised to be a dominant NBA big, then just couldn't stay on the court.

Oden. He was an animal his one year in college despite having a cast on one hand. That guy had so much promise

Grant Hill was dubbed the next great player in Jordan's era. Too bad his injury prevented him from playing his full potential.

Um, we saw Tmac play his prime. Hill had his cut short. Healthy Hill and Tmac would have been awesome to watch.

Hill was tremendous

He's already a top 15 all time player but if he were never injured he could very well be the GOAT

Dude had such a unique blend of athleticism and dexterity, an absolute beast in all areas of the game. It's a shame that injuries derailed what could have been a legendary career.

Sabonis Without a doubt. I wanna see how he would have turned up without injuries in his prime in the NBA. One of the Greatest Passers of all time in my opinion.

ankle injury in his last year in detriot that never recovered, sad that him and t-mac were never able to play together in Orlando.

his career was still pretty good.. with his college accolades, he should be an easy choice for the hall.. But yeah, we definitely got robbed of some potential there.

Grant hill hype was bigger than MJ. But we never saw anything extra amazing.

TMac prime was better than Kobe, dare i say he would be top 10 of all time if he didnt get injured

Ming was a freak, we have never had anyone like him.

Id say

1. Yao Ming.
2. CWeb. Injury plagued his career. he came back not as good and basically won the 2002 finals MVP over prime Shaq Kobe. If he was healthy, skys limit
3. TMac
4. Grant Hill.
5. Penny

Go look at his Pistons numbers. He was the perfect balance of scoring and playmaking at SF.

He and tmac would have taken over that weak East.

Grant Hill, he was like the proto-LeBron. 2nd for me would be Penny. We saw most of T-Mac's prime with no injuries.

Grant Hill.
He was meant to be LeBron before LeBron.

But I'll also nominate Tracy McGrady. An entire prime of his being healthy?
Would've been fun to watch.

But I will go ahead and say Bynum. ..if he could get his head on straight and stay healthy I think he had the potential to be the most dominant center in the league today. Could have had Bynum, Howard,Hibbert,Noah,Oden, Jordan, Drummond, would be nice
