    You are the GM for an expansion team: Who would you draft among these players

    Assuming each is 20 years old and you will likely have them for their entire career, who do you draft:

    Tim Duncan
    Kobe Bryant
    LeBron James
    Chris Paul

    It looks like you chose someone at each position so that's why KD is omitted. However, I'd take KD and start him at SG over Kobe any day.

    To answer the question: Duncan then LBJ


    Not because I think Tim is better than LBJ, but because we've already seen how Duncan will age and the success he has had. It's much easier to find a wing than a top 1 PF for 12 years.

    LBJ
    Duncan
    Kobe
    Paul

    Poleandreel makes a good point though. I am making an assumption here that Lebron won't have a drastic decline coming up. I think Duncan is certainly a good answer here as well.

    2b. Kobe

    You need an elite big man to win championships unless you're lucky enough to assemble/draft a super team like Bulls or Heat.

    Assuming they're all young I'm taking Deron Williams over CP3. He was clearly the better PG but got a little lazy.

    while i believe LBJ will ultimately go down as better than Duncan (who could very well get his 5th ring and 6th finals appearance this year), the fact that Duncan has accomplished so much in both the regular season and the playoffs and that he has been so humble, has taken incredible pay cuts, is an extension of the coach on the floor, and has been the very foundation on which the Spurs dominance has been built the last 16 years means that we can't just assume LBJ is gonna match. Tim Duncan is on the all time scoring rebounding and block an elite achievement. So if LBJ can keep winning rings into his 30's, can win 4+, get MVP 3+ times, and stay the course of greatness, he will definitely go down as better, his dominance is ridiculous and he was 4 years younger when he got drafted.

    there was no point in their careers, aside from when Chris Paul was injured, that Deron Williams was ever better.

    and if we're talking expansion team I'm assuming they're pretty thin on talent so I'd go

    1. LeBron
    2. Duncan
    3. Paul
    4. Kobe
    .

    Duncan. Easier to build around a big than a wing player.
