Well, lets compare, each team had four NBA guys

Ralph 10 seasons 15.4ppg 8.8rpg 2.3apg
Othell Wilson 2 seasons 4.2ppg 3.3apg
Rick Carlisle 5 seasons 2.2ppg 1.1apg 0.9rpg
Kenton Edelin 1 season 1.1ppg 1.0apg 2.6rpg

Thurl Bailey 13 seasons 12.8ppg 5.1rpg
Sidney Lowe 5 seasons 2.9ppg 3.9apg 1.7rpg
Lorenzo Charles 1 season 3.4ppg 1.1rpg
Cozell Mcqueen 1 season 2.0ppg 2.7rpg

Hard to say that outside of Ralph, they were that much more talented, at least from an NBA career standpoint.

Of course, I was only 3 years old at the time, so I never saw these matchups live.
