I think of ______ as a ______

Got this idea from a football forum. Thought it would be fun.

Which teams do you associate players with? Most success? Most recent? First team?
Like when you think of Kevin Garnett do you think of him as a Wolf or a Celtic?

  • Kevin Garnett
  • Ray Allen
  • Lebron James
  • Ron Artest
  • Steve Nash
  • Charles Barkley
  • Vince Carter
  • Jason Kidd
  • Tracy McGrady
  • Shaq
  • Chris Webber
  • Allen Iverson
  • Carmelo Anthony
  • Chris Bosh
  • Chris Paul
  • Wilt Chamberlain

Feel free to add more players to the list

Interesting way to look at it

I tend to associate most players with the team they were on the longest, or in some cases had the most success with. Here is my list:

  • Kevin Garnett: Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Ray Allen: Seattle Supersonics (even though it is hard not to think about him as a Buck at first, but his best years were on Seattle)
  • LeBron James: Cleveland Cavaliers(That will more than likely change, as I feel he stays on Miami for a good long while. But, he spent 7 years in Cleveland and has only spent two in Miami)
  • Ron Artest: Indiana Pacers
  • Steve Nash: Phoenix Suns
  • Charles Barkley; Phoenix Suns (even with him starting on Philly, he just had monster years in Phoenix)
  • Vince Carter: Toronto Raptors (I am from Toronto, hard to not associate him with the team even with everything that went down)
  • Jason Kidd: New Jersey Nets
  • Tracy McGrady: Orlando Magic
  • Shaquille O'Neal: Los Angeles Lakers
  • Chris Webber: Sacramento Kings
  • Allen Iverson: Philadelphia 76ers (I mean, really? Where else would people remember him, Detroit?)
  • Carmelo Anthony: Denver Nuggets
  • Chris Bosh: Toronto Raptors
  • Chris Paul: New Orleans Hornets
  • Wilt Chamberlain: Philadelphia 76ers (Though he started off on the Philadelphia Warriors)

The tougher ones by Chilbert Arenas:

  • Grant Hill: Detroit Pistons
  • Matt Barnes: Golden State Warriors
  • Steve Francis: Houston Rockets
  • Nate Robinson: New York Knicks
  • Tony Allen: Boston Celtics
  • Carlos Boozer: Utah Jazz

I am guessing geography, not to mention age, can play a major part in this. Just think most of these guys either had their most success or longest stint on these teams.

I tried not to think and write what comes to mind-I guess I chose the teams that the player had the most success with( I mean individually, because obviously Kidd won a ring with the mavs and not the nets f.e)
