No because the analogy said Muresean which is Gheorge's last name. Therefore you need Mugsy's last name.

Based on the titles, I didn't know it would be about team names and players. So I only got 3. I would have done better if it was general basketball terms.

Kinda feels like a better analogy for the Bowie/Jordan selection would be Odom/Durant.

It's a weird analogy, to be sure. Bowie was chosen between a Hall of Famer (Olajuwon) at No. 1 and the best player of all time (MJ) at No. 3. Milicic was chosen between probably the best challenger for best player of all time (Lebron) at No. 1 and... Carmelo Anthony. All due respect to the guy for bringing Jim Boeheim his only NCAA championship, but his NBA career doesn't bear comparison to Jordan, Olajuwon, or James.
