How great would our franchise be if Danny Manning didn't get hurt?

For those younglings who do not know about Dan "the man" Manning, the guy was the Lebron James of his time (minus the athleticism. He was long at 6"10, had Lebron like court vision, great shooter (routinely shot 50% fg and 80% FT), and would get over 1 stl and 1 blk a game. Unfortunately for us, he had a serious injury which slowed him down.

He also won a National Championship at Kansas and pretty much rejuvenated the Kansas program. After Dan the Man left, a lot of top talent joined.

Before Dan the Man got injured, his stats were as follows:

23.7 pts, 7 rebs, 4.2 assist, 1.3 stls, 1.4 blks, 49% FG.

He was the complete player and was our Blake "Mad Dog" Griffin during his era. Would have been a great cornerstone to build our franchise...
