If you are the GM of an expansion team, who do you choose with the 1st Overall pick in a draft with these players:

Derrick Rose
OJ Mayo
Kevin Durant
Michael Beasley
Greg Oden

*Note you are going to choose a guy to build around them.

Rose isnt that good imo. Durant i dont think will ever be a franchise player. Beasley, Oden and Mayo are the safest bets


I went wit Oden

centers and PGs are the hardest to find...if Oden didnt get hurt so often i might take a chance on him but Rose wont get hurt and can play the point for me and score so i would go with Rose

ROY...I think if you put a decent team around KD he can really shine. Let's not forget what he did in college.

Also none of the other players have proven themselves yet in the NBA. Greg Oden could definitely be a star, but I think he has a chance of being a bust

You always build on abig man.,

But in this case since ODen is question mark about health....

ill take beasely.

I'd take Oden. Probably even with the knee injury. I think he's going to be a stud. Most likely a 20-10 guy at some point, and a good defensive true C. You don't just come by those type of guys everyday.

im takin mayo on this one...i just love sg type of play nd still think theyre one of the most valuble pieces to winning a championship team along wit a center...beside oden could play differently wit a messed up knee nd i think rose will be a bust...beasly nd kd r great but beasly is undersized nd kd is underweight for there positions imo...so im takin mayo...but its close between mayo oden nd beasly

I think Oden is largely overrated as of rite now. I would take Rose because the NBA today is guard dominant. Also Rose has rediculous potential, now if I already had a middle of the pack team in place I would probably go with Beasely.

Of course you think Rose is a bust because you didn't get him. Now if the Heat had him, you would think the EXACT opposite and say Beasley will be a bust because he is undersized. You HEAT fans are funny.

I'll select Beasly, gotta have a diamond and he would be it. Oden would be a nice choice to but with no star on the team their really isn't a reason to choose Oden over Beasly.

Greg Oden with ease unless those other guys can prove the theory wrong.

But of course you think Rose is going to be a stud because you're a Bulls fan.

It's a two way street.

I would either go with Oden or Rose because those are the hardest postitions to fill. I went with Rose though because there are alot of big men that are good and you could just find a defense C, like Ben Wallace from 5 years ago.

You can't just blindly pick a player. There's no premise to go off of. If we had Chris Paul or Deron Williams, why take Rose? What if we had Brandoy Roy; why take Mayo? If we had Carmello Anthony or LeBron James, why take Durant or Beasley? If we had Dwight Howard, why take Oden? This entire thread is a pointless wet dream.

That's why I said EXPANSION team meaning you start from scratch and choose somebody to START your franchise. Read before you criticize dumbass.

Mayo. Can handle the point and put up 20+ ppg. But that's with having seen only Durant play out of this whole bunch. BTW he would be my next pick. Plays both ends.
