Which player other than BLAKE GRiFFIN would you build your team around?
Ill take James Harden...
He can get to the rack anytime he needs to with great touch around the rim can get it done with either hand, his handles is nice he'll hit chu then pull up from deep and he has the ability to D up yo best player every nite
Johnny Flynn- 2025 Hall of famer watch.
DeRozan i hear he has great potential what you guys think?
Yea dats true but when you draft on potential you end up with kwame brown
Ricky Rubio is the best player in the run and gun play
Jonny Flynn- the best PG in this draft
I will take Ricky Rubio because he feels the game like nobody else, he is still young and he will make any of his teammates better.
hill or mullens. i think franchises should have bigs as foundations. they may not be stars someday, but i don't think you'd go wrong with building a team starting with a big man with both offensive and defensive skillsets. thabeet would be okay, but you've to surround him with second-tier offensive talent.
No player in this draft is the kind of player you build your team around. At least not yet.
I agree, but if I chose 1 it would be Brandon Jennings...he is the best in run and gun
I would take Tyreke Evans.
Gator...you took my player. Evans has been dominating PG's during workouts.
I would say there are only a few players, outside of Griffin, who even really have much of a shot at being franchise-defining talents.
In order, I would rank them, based on potential:
1. Jordan Hill
2. DeMar DeRozan
3. Brandon Jennings
4. Hasheem Thabeet
5. Ricky Rubio
6. Wayne Ellington
7. Jonny Flynn
8. B.J. Mullens
9. Tyreke Evans
10. James Harden
In saying that, understand that I think there's a good chance Jennings and DeRozan might end up as busts, while I'm very confident Harden will be a solid starter in the league.
franchise players in this draft
Adi_Joseph how in the world do u put b.j mullens on any list of potential franchise players.. wow! and then u follow it up with the possiblity of Jennings and DeRozan being bust and still not mention mullens. one thing i know for sure in this upcoming draft is that which ever team that selects b.j mullens and i'll tell u now that it is going to be a team that is not a good franchise (minn.18/28 mem.27 sac.23) and he will be a BUST.
I think it's best to build around a dominant center or outstanding point guard. Rubio is highest on my list. He's one of few with a chance to be a special player. I think shooting is the easiest skill to build. With work, in time his shooting will get better.
Contrary to my last statement, very high on my list is Curry. His shooting skill is a special talent, and shooters are always needed in this sport regardless of the level. I'm not saying he would be the 2nd best build around player, but he would be very high on my list. Likely higher than most would have him.
i agree with Harden. hes the best perimiter scorer in the draft.
Better than Curry? I don't agree with that. I do think Harden is a better all-around player, but as a perimeter scorer, there's no match for Curry in this draft.
Currys better Shooter, Hardens better scorer.
Do you think Curry will be able to creat his own shot? If so, playing point, he will be in a good position to score with ball in his hands. Harden probably can create his own better than Curry can.
Dominating big men win championships. John Bryant has everything you look for in a center. His exciting style of play will sell tickets and his rugged good looks will sell jerseys.
I only hope he can rise above his character issues, but with the kind of endorsment money he will get from shoe and bubblegum companies, I think he can abstain from molesting little boys.
