Sampson’s birthday also led to some good discussion on the men’s basketball message board. Some select posts are below, including one from poster Trugoy that asked what Sampson’s game would look like if he were modern player and who that might compare to. Responses within the thread – click here – included Anthony Davis, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Kevin Durant to name a few.
Here are some of the posts about how Sampson might look in today’s college game. Hint: still dominant.
