Do you think these 3 players would be some of the best at their positions right now if it wasn't for severe injuries

1. Greg Oden: ( Even with the little minutes/games he got. I think he did a pretty dam good job. I honestly believe he would be number 1 or 2 best center in the league right now. He would be a amazing shot blocker , rebounder , and would have developed a good enough offense game.

2. Shaun Livingston: ( Some people said he could have been the next "MAGIC" or "PENNY" type of player. Basically an oversize point guard. I wasn't too crazy about Livingston after judging his first two years in the league , but he did improve his numbers before that horrible knee injury he had during a game.)

3. Jay Williams: ( His rookie campagin was kind of a failure if you think about it. He did a good enough job to be a member of the all nba 2nd team. Williams was one of my favorite college point guards and trust me I hated "DUKE". Williams did show signs of potential , but he wasn't playing up to expectations with the bulls. That's why Jamal Crawford took his starting point guard job midway through the season. Then after his rookie season ended he had that really bad motorcycle accident which basically ruined his whole NBA career.

I can only say certainly about Greg Oden. And yes I was one of the people thinking he should have went 1st overall ahead of Durant :/

Not just you ...me and most analyst/NBA fans. It's hard to pass up a great big man with a lot of potential. Why you think portland chose sam bowie over Jordan lol , Darko over dwade/melo/bosh....

Lol true. Lot's of people are calling him a bust though. It's not like he's underperformed. He just hasn't performed at all lol.

Oden would be the #1 Center no doubt. He was a monster. It'd be cool if he came back with a little less than Kareem's longevity and won a bunch of rings.

pg. Lebron / Westbrook 

sg. Jordan / Kobe / Wiggins sf. Pippen / Durant 

pf. Davis / Olajuwon / Garnett

c. Wilt / Embiid

Pretty much agreeing with everyone else. Oden would suceed at the Center position. Really sucks that he had to go through a injury : /

Just careless NBA fans would call him a bust. The same type of crowd that says "Blake Griffin car dunk is the best ever in the slam dunk contest". lol

Oden probably would've been a big time center just because of how thin the center position really is. There aren't that many HUGE stars, so he would probably be one of them. Livingston, I feel like he would be overshadowed by a lot of the elite guards we have today and I don't think that Williams wouldn't have done much either way. He was just one of those bust players.

Greg Oden. Man, that dude was so good with Ohio State and he put up decent numbers in that one year with Portland he wasn't injured.
