how would this team makeup do in an 82g season, and how far in the postseason?
c - M. Gasol
pf - L. Scola
sf - S. battier
sg - C. lee
pg - R. Alston
2 more benchers for the hell of it
c/pf - J przybilla
sg/pg - Eddie house.
the only superstar on there is WADE.
everybody else ( starting ) could end up as an allstar in their career..and most likely will.
the bench has 3 bigs in m.gasol/scola/przybilla, and each play above average defense.
next, when gay left the game, what better to bring battier out to defend the 3 and wear whoever else down?
C.lee and alston as a bench backup would make things awesome.
last, you have your dagger 3 point clutch shooter when needed, mr. house.
i would say, 62-20, most likely conference finals or finals their first year together, 2nd year 66-16 and would be in the finals, achieving a ring.
if they were set up now dam all dem r young nd r great in starting lineup.
No offense, but I can't stand your starting lineup. I think Rudy Gay and Ramon Sessions are better overall than Battier and Alston, but I would rather start them instead. I think your best defensive player should generally start, especially when you need someone to guard guys like Lebron and Kobe. Alston in my opinion is a better distributor than Sessions right now. Plus those guys are better shooters from 3 meaning that Lopez will have more room to work and it keeps defenses from sagging on WAde. Besides Gay and Sessions would get more shots with the second unit instead of competing with Wade, Lopez and Aldridge for them. I would also move Pryzbilla ahead of Gasol. He's a much better rebounder and a better shot blocker.
YOUR TEAM DOESN'T HAVE A TRUE POINT GUARD..THAT MEANS WADE WILL BE COUNTED ON MORE TO DISTRIBUTE AND CREATE PLAYS FOR HIS TEAMMATES...SESSIONS IS 1 OF THE GUYS WHO OVERACHIEVE THEN GETS OVERPAID IF HE BECOMES A FREE AGENT ...IN THE EAST YOUR TEAM WILL BATLLE FOR THE 8 SEED..THEY WOULD'NT MAKE IT IN THE WEST...
Battle for the 8th seed in the East? What a joke.
Sessions is a true point, not an ideal PG to run a championship team but when the rest of the starters are that good and the bench is so deep he will do just fine.
Wade is a top 3 player in the league, a dynamo that can handle the ball and carry a team on his back.
Rudy Gay is one of the best up and coming swingmen in the game, very nice offensive game and improving defensively. Terrific second option. Future all-star.
Aldridge is a good young PF who is still getting better. Fantastic third option on this team.
Lopez is a true center that will provide a shot blocker in the middle, a good rebounder and an improving post game. Future all-star.
Coming off the bench, Battier would be a lock down defender and team leader.
Lee is very underrated player, young and a good shooter with a developing all around offensive game, he also is a solid defender.
Scola, Gasol and Pryzbilla would give them three more bigs who all can rebound well and bring differnent specialties to the table; Scola provides energy, Gasol has a nice offensive game and Pryzbilla will alter shots.
Alston would give them an experience PG to spell Sessions.
Once this team gelled they would be very hard to stop. If they barely made the playoffs in the East that would be beyond absurd.
Sessions and Alston aren't pure point guards????
that team would no doubt be an finals contender... And if DWade is healthy for the entire playoffs, they would probably win.
Joel can bang with any big (and marc and brook can also provide minutes)
Shane can lockdown any wing, and I also think Gay can do a good job on just about any wing, especially if he doesn't have to be option #1 or #2 all game.
Luis Scola is a great energy guy off the bench, as is House, who can get your team back in the game in a hurry.
And I haven' even mentioned LaMarcus yet
Dwade with a bunch of scrubs and should-be-bench players can take the 5th seed, and you think him with a bunch of good-to-borderline-allstars would have to battle for the 8th seed?
Battier starts over Gay, so Rudy can make it rain off the pine. Best bench in the league.
