one on one matches

Back in the summer of '95, the NBA was gonna have a PPV one on one event that was to include Nick Van Exel vs Kenny Andersen, Joe Smith vs Kevin Garnett, and Shaquille Oneal vs Hakeem Olajuwon. This was cancelled at the last minute due to Olajuwon pulling out with an injury, even though they discussed replacing him with Alonzo Mourning. But in the end they just scrapped the whole idea. As far as I know, nothing like this was ever brought up seriously again.

Anyways, who do you think would have won those match ups and if they were do this event today, who would you like to see compete?

come on man

Kenny Andersen was an all-star at that time and Nick was one of the sickest players ever. Who would'nt want to watch Nick go one on one. I think Smith would have beat KG. This was before they played in the NBA and Smith was coming off a national player of the year award. Hakeem would have beat Shaq too. He just got done outplaying him in the Finals and a prime Hakeem had way more one on one moves then a young Shaq.

As for today:

Kobe vs Wade
Gordon vs Mayo
Duncan vs Garnett
Carmelo vs Durant
Nate Robinson vs JR Smith

MVP Battle (Lebron Vs Kobe)
High flyer vs Shooter (Nate Robinson Vs Stephen Curry)
Rookie Vs Sophmore (James Harden Vs Derrick Rose)
Old Players (Charles Barkley Vs Chris Webber)
Celberity Match (The Game Vs Nelly)

KG vs Tim

the battle of the two greatest PF's in history.

Athleticism vs Fundamentals, both great defenders, smooth and finesse on offense.
although both have lingering injuries now.

Pierce vs. Carmelo Anthony

They both have similar games, it would be fun to see who would hit more shots.

Nice Matchups

Everyone put out some nice matchups. I think there would be a lot of cases where the better player would not always win. Every extra guy that you have on the floor changes how you would play a guy. If I'm guarding Rondo, I'm looking for him to drive every time and it's probably going to be easier to force him into bad shots. I think CP3 is better than Deron Williams, but one on one, Deron is going to be too big for Paul. A guy like J.R. Smith or even Jamal Crawford would probably beat a lot of guys better than them because they are bigger and hard to stop once they start hitting.

It would be cool to see a one on one tournament at every position. Tweeners and guys that play multiple positions get to pick which position (out of the ones they actually play) tournament that they want to be in. I'm not sure I want to watch Jaron vs. Jason Collins in the first round though.

Jason vs Jaron Collins would be funny. How about Madsen vs Brockman, loser leaves town.

How about Jamal Crawford vs Allen Iverson?

There should be some pretty good creativity in that one..
