Josh Duhamel says he knows exactly what celebrity he'd save if he magically had the power to jump back in time ... former LSU and NBA star Pistol Pete Maravich.
Josh is currently staring in the Hulu show "11.22.63" about a man going back in time to stop the assassination of JFK. So when we got him at LAX we had to ask ...
Which dead celebrity would he save?
Check out the clip -- MLK? Nope. RFK? Nope. Lincoln, Gandhi, John Lennon? None of the above. Josh says he wants to save the guy he calls "maybe the best basketball player behind Steph Curry."
Question now is ... who's gonna save Josh from Michael Jordan when he hears that?
