Dave Cowens is one of bygone NBA players who would fit in the modern NBA and excel.

Dave Cowens holds the record for most rebounds at Florida State 17.2 rebounds per game.
He was 6'9" 230 pounds.

In his junior season, against LSU he grabbed 31 rebounds which stands a second best all time.

He was all elbows, nobody wanted to play against him. Lebron James is a far better athlete than Dave Cowens and he would be having nightmares about Dave Cowens. Draymond Green is a better athlete than Dave Cowens...he  would positively hate playing against him.

Auerbach took Cowens at 4th overall in the 1970 draft. Guess who told Red to pick him?

Bill Russell.

Cowens wanted it more than the other guy and the other guy knew  it.

To be honest I don't think this is possible. GSW will have the two best players in this series, and then Draymond/Klay/Iggy fit so well. Taking benches into account it might be more even.

You think Curry would be better than the 5th best Celtic of all time?? Surely not.
