Would you rather?
These are just some random young talented players.......Which team would you rather have? A B C D E F? TEAM A is a group of some of my favorite players, I'll ride with them. Hope I didn't make them too good, tried to even the teams out
PG- Kyrie Irving SG- Paul George SF- Nic Batum PF-Derrick Favors C- Demarcus Cousins
PG- Jrue Holiday SG-DeMar DeRozan SF-Harrison Barnes PF-Taj Gibson C-Andrew Bynum
PG-Iman Shumpert SG-James Harden SF-MKG PF-Kevin Love C-Deandre Jordan
PG-Isiah Thomas SG-Eric Gordon SF-Rudy Gay PF-Anthony Davis C-Jonas Valanciunas
PG-Stephen Curry SF-Terrance Ross SF-Kawhi Leonard PF-Blake Griffin C-Enes Kanter
PG-Ricky Rubio SG-Marshon Brooks SF-Thaddeus Young PF-LaMarcus Aldridge C-Omer Asik
Team A, please.
Team E, no doubt about it. I love everything about this team. Stephen Curry happens to be my favorite athlete of all time. I was sky-high on Terrence Ross during this draft season, and I always thought Blake Griffin, if he could stay healthy, was the next Mailman. Kawhi is just a good player to have and is very low-maintenance. Kanter I feel like I still know nothing about, but I'll take his strength, size, and youth.
Can I take Gordon Hayward instead of Kawhi, though?
I love this post, these teams do look very even.
No team ever with Bynum hahah I would probably roll with team C.
Team A, without hesitation.
Team A, Team C is close, but Kyrie with the Future Superstar that is DeMarcus Cousins, with Nic Batum to knock down threes, Derrick Favors is gonna be a stud, and Paul George will come into his own soon, but even now that is a very solid team, team C and F will contend because they have Love and Aldridge respectively.
its kind of unfair putting rookie in this group..they havent Played a nba game yet..but if i was picking from the teams above it'll be TEAM: A...
If Irving & Cousins dont get injured,i expect them to be on the all 3rd nba team....
I'd go with team A, then either team E or D.
i like TEAM D,also..but TEAM A will win...
I like D with Gordon Gay and Davis but I am not sold on Thomas at the point. I don't think the Kings are either since they just signed Brooks.
C might actually be the best team with the defense they can throw at you with Shumpert, MKG and Jordan blocking shots.
Team A is kind of unfair because there are no rookies on it. But to answer your question yes I would choose Team A.
But if you get rid of Team A...for some reason I really like the potential on Team D. They have two rookies (Davis & Valanciunas) on it but those two rookies could be battling out for ROY honors this year. If you get rid of Team A, the potential of Team D's front court is much higher than anyone else.
Then you add two potential all-stars in Eric Gordon and Rudy Gay. And then also Isaiah Thomas who was one of the best rookies last year.
I'd go with Team D.
I'm torn between A and D, with E in 3rd place.
Team D has some very talented wings, and also have some bigs who could be special but in the end I'll go with A. Irving has a huge advantage at PG and while D's wings are better, team A's wings could defend them both with their elite length and athleticism. Cousins and Favors just have to much muscle for Davis and Jonas right now but overall it's pretty close.
Team D might be able to beat A but Isaiah Thomas is horrible he hurts them
Team D is my pick. Team A is close, but I think Davis and Valanciunas will be the two top rookies next year and Gordon and Gay will be dangerous on the wings. And IT is a legitimate starting pg in the NBA in my opinion.
Team D... 2 all-star quality wings plus 2 frontcourt rookies with unbelievable potential and a solid point
A is by far the best overall team. Greta young PG, 6'10" SG who is greta on defense and SHOULD be a amazing on offense. Batum is a greta defender. Favors has all-star potential. If you can get over Cousins' hot head then thats a great team.
C and A for me
Team A probably but its so much potential in the team D front court.
For me it would be picking between A and F....
A for the Irving/Cousins combo that I think would be almost unstoppable assuming Cousins gets it all together.
F mostly because I'm an Aldridge believer but also to see Rubio pass to everyone on that team except Stonehand Asik.....
Easily A; not only is the overall talent the best (no dud players like some of the other teams), but they complement each others' games perfectly.
Irving is the do-it-all PG who can assist and score. George and Batum form arguably the second most intimidating defensive tandem at the 2/3 since MJ-Pippen, behind Wade-Lebron. Favors is that shot-blocking menace who will alter ever more, plus his mobility will allow him to run the floor. Cousins is the low-post bully who will score in the paint, collect rebounds and be able to defend the low-post while Favors anchors the D with his helpside D.
The only weakness this team could be perceived to have is lack of shot creators, but when you've got shooters in George and Batum, and a great iso scorer in Irving - before you even consider their size in the paint - you don't need to worry about scoring.
I really like Team B and D... but A just has to much to contend with it overall. If they have to face any of the other teams they'll always have some kind of major advantage and they just have way more overall talent than the other teams in my opinion and yeah druneave3, you stacked the deck but I understand you like your guys.
I like A first, then E and I might choose D if they had a different point guard, Thomas is my least favorite of all the point guards you have listed. I might choose Hayward over George , Hayward is such a complete player and makes his teammates better, smart, good ficilitator from the 2 spot, George is good, not knocking him just like Hayward alittle better.
Yea, I feel the same about Team D lol. Isiah Thomas just kills the excitement.
I'd go with Team A.
