Comparing the 1992 Team to Our Current Roster

These are just basic stats and similarities between the players we had then and what they produced to the players we have now and what they produce. Do I think this team we have now could compete against our 1992 team with Drexler and those guys, I wouldn't think so but then I checked some stats and maybe they could even beat them. Some very comparable stats between everyone except for a couple spots where clearly Clyde was better than Batum and LA is better than Buck(stats-wise).

This goes without Dorell Wright's contributions among others but same can be said about the other 1992 bench players I didn't add. It could be that McCollum is a bust and Wright is our sixth man who averages around 10 ppg but this is a rough idea of what the 1992 top 7 players could do and the current top 7 can do. I thought it was really Interesting. Do you think based off of these numbers we can hope for a decent season and perhaps good things in the near future from a squad like this?
