 day, he reunites with Muggsy Bogues, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Shawn
 Bradley, and Larry Johnson to give them their talent back. They Mention that
 He's a baseball player now" and challenge him to a game of 3 on 3
 It's kind of odd for all 5 NBA players to be together in the same place. Even if
 they're injured, they would have been expected to attend their team's home
 ay they would have been togetherw
 teams were off that day. As it turns out, there were only two days between
 February 17th and March 10th where all 4 teams(Knicks, Suns, Charlotte
 Hornets, and Philadelphia 76ers) were off at the same time. February 25th and
 March 6th
 we know Jordan gave them their talent back one of those two days, which
 means that the day of The Ultimate Game" and Jordan's Spring Training
 game-turned-practice would have either been Friday, February 24th, 1995, or
 Sunday, March 5th, 1995. Given that going into the off-se, MLB knew they
 had a strike on their hands, combined with the fact that Most teams don't start
 their Spring Training games as early as the 24th of February, its very safe to
 say that Jordan wouldn't have had a game-turned-practice on February 24th,
 and it must have been March 5th
 his makes sense anyway, given that Jordan quit baseball just 5 days a
 played the game of his life, and 4 days after he played some 3-on-3 with NBA
 All-Stars. After all, if he knew he was coming back to basketball when he gave
 them their talent back(we know he did, because he said "Tm going to regret
 this" just before letting them touch the ball), why would he stick it out in
 baseball another 5 weeks?

Curry went on to lead his team to an NBA championship in 2015. He won two back-to-back Most Valuable Player awards 2015 and 2016, the second one by unanimous vote. Despite his lack of size - Curry is 6-foot-3-inches tall - the Golden State Warriors used its seventh pick in the 2009 NBA draft on him. He finished his rookie season averaging 17.5 points per game and was unanimously named to the 2010 All-Rookie First Team. Before the 2012-13 NBA season the Warriors signed Curry to a four-year extension worth $44 million. It proved to be one of the best decisions Golden State had made in several years. The 2012-13 season would become Curryโ€™s breakout year. He averaged 22.9 points in the regular season and led the Warriors to the 2013 NBA playoffs where they won their first-round series over the Denver Nuggets, but lost to the San Antonio Spurs in the semifinals. The Warriors failed to make it to the finals in 2014 but won the NBA title in 2015 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. They would go on to blow a 3-1 LEAD, before winning it all just this year with the help of Kevin (๐Ÿ) Durant. HONORABLE MENTIONS: Luol Deng, Jason Williams

His immense natural talent (his mother was a member of the West German national basketball team) helped him quickly acclimate to the sport, and by age 16 he was playing with DJK Wรผrzburg, a second-division German professional team. He first came to the attention of NBA scouts in 1998, when he scored 33 points to lead a team of international players age 19 and under to an upset victory over a collection of American high school stars in an exhibition game in San Antonio, Texas. As a result of the exhibition, he garnered dozens of scholarship offers to play collegiately in the United States, but Nowitzki instead declared his eligibility for the NBA draft. Nowitzki has led the Mavericks to 15 NBA Playoffs (2001โ€“2012; 2014โ€“2016), including the franchise's first Finals appearance in 2006 and only championship in 2011. He is a 13-time All-Star, a 12-time All-NBA Team member, and the first European player to start in an All-Star Game, as well as the first to receive the NBA Most Valuable Player Award(2007). Nowitzki is the highest-scoring foreign-born player in NBA history and the sixth player to achieve over 30,000 regular-season points. He is also one of seven players who achieved a 50โ€“40โ€“90 season (2007). He is the first Maverick voted onto an All-NBA Team and holds several all-time Mavericks franchise records.

He became a bone fide star as captain of the Celtics, earning ten All-Star nods and becoming a four-time All-NBA team member. After nine seasons of leading the Celtics as their sole star player, Pierce combined with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in 2007 to form a "Big Three" that together led Boston to the NBA Finals in 2008 and 2010, winning the 2008 NBA Championship. Pierce was instrumental to the Celtics' 2008 championship run, as he was awarded the Finals MVP after averaging 22 points per game. Pierce is one of only three players, alongside Larry Bird and John Havlicek, to score over 20,000 points in their career with the Celtics alone. He holds the Celtics' record for most three-point field goals made and also ranks third in team history in games played, second in points scored, seventh in total rebounds, fifth in total assists, and first in total steals. He has also made the fourth most three-point field goals in NBA history, behind only Jason Terry, Reggie Miller and Ray Allen.

He is the sixth-highest scorer in ABA-NBA history with 30,026 points (NBA and ABA combined). He was well known for slam dunking from the free throw line in slam dunk contests and was the only player voted Most Valuable Player in both the ABA and the NBA. Many consider him one of the most talented players in the history of the NBA; he is widely acknowledged as one of the game's best dunkers. While Connie Hawkins, "Jumping" Johnny Green, Elgin Baylor, Jim Pollard and Gus Johnson performed spectacular dunks before Erving's time, "Dr. J" brought the practice into the mainstream. His signature dunk was the "slam" dunk, since incorporated into the vernacular and basic skill set of the game in the same manner as the "crossover" dribble and the "no look" pass. Before Julius Erving, dunking was a practice most commonly used by the big men (usually standing close to the hoop) to show their brutal strength which was seen as style over substance, even unsportsmanlike, by many purists of the game. However, the way Erving utilized the dunk more as a high-percentage shot made at the end of maneuvers generally starting well away from the basket and not necessarily a "show of force" helped to make the shot an acceptable strategy, especially in trying to avoid a blocked shot.

A perennial All-Star and a member of the 1992 U.S. Olympic Dream Team, Drexler twice led the Blazers to the NBA Finals. It wasn't until he joined the Houston Rockets midway through his 12th campaign, however, that he finally earned a championship ring. It was fitting that Drexler achieved the ultimate NBA success while in Houston. A native of the city, he attended the University of Houston and starred on the "Phi Slamma Jamma" teams of the early 1980s. If a player wanted to be considered among the NBAโ€™s elite, there was no mystery about what he had to achieve - the same things achieved by Los Angeles Lakers' Magic Johnson and Boston Celtics' Larry Bird. Indeed, each was considered to rank among the most complete players of all time. In 1986-87, Drexler began to find himself in that rarefied air. He joined Johnson and Bird as the only players in the league to average more than 21 points (21.7 ppg), 6 rebounds (6.3 rpg), and 6 assists (6.9 apg). He also finished fifth in the NBA with an average of 2.49 steals per game. In the postseason, Drexler increased his production to 24.0 ppg, but the Blazers lost a four-game first-round series to Hakeem Olajuwon and the Houston Rockets. His next season was one of his best. In 1987-88, he placed fifth in the balloting for the NBA Most Valuable Player Award, after averaging 27.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 2.51 steals. He ended his illustrious NBA career joining Oscar Robertson and John Havlicek as the only players in NBA history to top 20,000 points, 6,000 rebounds and 3,000 assists.

He made minimal impact and was traded to the Dallas Mavericks in 1998. By his fourth season with the Mavericks, he was voted to his first NBA All-Star Game and had earned his first All-NBA selection. Together with Dirk Nowitzki and Michael Finley, Nash led the Mavericks to the Western Conference Finals the following season. He became a free agentafter the 2003โ€“04 season and returned to the Phoenix Suns. In the 2004โ€“05 season, Nash led the Suns to the Western Conference Finals and was named the league's MVP. He was named MVP again in the 2005โ€“06 season and was runner-up for a third consecutive MVP to Nowitzki in 2006โ€“07. Named by ESPN in 2006 as the ninth-greatest point guard of all time, Nash led the league in assists and free-throwpercentage at various points in his career.

Although extremely athletic, Kemp was the youngest player in the NBA at that time and struggled to find his place.

Kemp began to find his place in the NBA as a star during his second season with the Sonics. Together with Gary Payton, Eddie Johnson, Ricky Pierce and Nate McMillan, they became a highly successful squad. Kemp's career peaked in 1995โ€“96, when he and Payton led the Sonics to a franchise-record 64 wins and their first NBA Finalsappearance since 1979. They faced Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, who were coming off an NBA record 72 wins. The Sonics pushed the heavily favored Bulls to six games before losing. In the finals, Kemp posted per game averages of 23.3 points on 55% shooting from the field, 10.0 rebounds and two blocks. Kemp has proven that he is one of the most talented players to star in the NBA. Initially criticized for not having a game beyond slam dunks, he developed into a scoring and rebounding leader. As his coach with the Super Sonics, George Carl judged that he was among the top five players in the league. Others compared his playing style to that of Michael Jordan.
