Put any two Players in the league with these players.

Damon Jones - PG
Chris Duhon - PG
Jason Kapono - SG/SF
Ben Gordon SG or 6th man
Keith Van Horn - SF/PF
Eduardo Najera SF/PF
Robert Horry - PF
Kenny Thomas - PF
Jason collins - C/PF
Chris Mihm - C/PF



Example: If you choose Yao Ming for your Center than that means you switch Jason Collins or Chris Mihm to your PF.
If you choose to have a dominant PF like Tim Duncan, then that means you switch your C to be Jason Collins or Chris Mihm. Don't make it where Duncan is the C and Najera is the PF.

If you have CP3 as your PG then you either use Kapano at SG or Ben Gordon.

Some players don't have an alternate position, so if you lack a PG, you can't put Ben Gordon at that spot since he only plays SG.



The point of this is to see will any two players in the league be able to win a title with the above team considering the PF positions could be weak and/or center.

Also of note is that you can get a good 6th man and/or 3 point shooters on the team so that definitely helps.

All in all, can you create a team with the above players and any two superstars in the league that would win it all and be a favorite to do so?

The backcourt isn't too bad, but the front court is really week. A couple frontcourt players like LeBron and Dwight would go well though.

Duhon/Jones
Gordon/Kapono
LeBron/Kapono
Thomas/Najera
Dwight/Collins

That looks pretty good to me. I think this team would have a good shot to win it all. A few guys that can spread the court, a couple guys that can create their own shots, and a beast down low.

Duhon- Underrated, dropped 40 in a game last year, can hit the open jumper. Solid Defender.
Gordon- Undersized but he is a fantastic scorer.
Kapono- Lights out 3 point shooter can spread the floor.
Dirk Nowitzki- Best offesnive PF in the league today. Would spread the floor.
Tim Duncan- Best playoff big man in the NBA today, no one knows how to win like Duncan. His defensive post presence would intimidate smaller guys from driving the lane.




So basically, i think this team would win because they have one of the best inside players in the game, paired with the best offesnive big man in the game, to compensate for their awful frontcourt depth. With Dirk and Duncan getting all the attention downlow, this will allow the solid 3 point shooters in Kapono, Duhon, and Gordon to get open looks ALL DAY. And if the shots arent falling, just give it to dirk so he can iso, or give it to duncan in the post for an easy bank shot or inside bucket.


NOw thats a team that could contend for a chip

I don't know if that team would win it all, but it would be a good team...I think it would make a deep run, but its still not the best team in the league...

Two stars Kobe & Lebron

PG-Duhon, Jones

CHAMPIONSHIP! I don't know why some of the guys are on that list, but you put Kobe and Lebron together and you could throw me and the guy who started this thread on the team and we would at least contend for a title.

Have you seen that frontcourt?

I put this team like this for a reason. It makes you have to pick a big man.

I think that team would do quite well. Lebron and Duncan are both efficient enough to make up for the lack of everyone else. If you double Lebron or Timmy you have the best shooter 3pt% in history on your team and you have a 6th man on the team in Ben Gordon.

I could see them winning the title.

Downlow is very weak, Without a Doubt I would pick Dwight and Duncan/KG. Kopono is atleast a Decent SF who can shoot the three and Ben Gordon can go off all you need is a decent PG with a Combo downlow to feed to and Great shooters on the outside.

IndyRealist
09-08-2008, 10:03 PM
PG Chris Duhon
SG Ben Gordon
SF Danny Granger
PF Eduardo Najera
C Yao Ming
6th - Robert Horry

The only one who can't knock down the 3 is Yao. The only one who can't defend his position is Gordon. Everyone can hit free throws. Duhon, Gordon, and Granger can slash to the basket, Yao can post up. Najera does the dirty work. They can run in transition if Yao gets the rebound, they can play through the post because Yao demands double teams, they can play pick and roll with virtually any of the backcourt players. Gordon, Granger, Yao, and Horry are all used to taking clutch shots for their teams. The only real weakness to this team is rebounding. Only Yao is a good rebounder, Granger and Najera are only average, and Gordon is undersized. This team would be scary down 2 with 1.2 seconds left in the game.

I have a question though, why these particular players? I mean, Keith Van Horn is only "active" in the most technical sense. There are plenty of other role players out there to fill a roster with. Plus it seems like the list discourages selecting a guard, since Duhon is an above average point guard, and if you select a SG then you may lose Kopono or Gordon, both good players. The SF, PF, and C selections are average role players.

Note: Yes, I chose Granger because I'm from Indiana. After many a long debate with other fans, I'm willing to concede that his position may be interchangeable with either Loul Deng or Rudy Gay.

Good Thread. My two Superstar choices: Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett

PG: C. Duhon/D. Jones
SG: K. Bryant/B. Gordon
SF: K. Van Horn/J. Kapono/Najera
PF: Kevin Garnett/Robert Horry/K. Thomas
C: C. Mihm/J. Collins


I think this team would be good enough to win the title and here is why, with Kobe, you have a clutch player who can play defense and hit big shots. With KG you have a great defender down low who can dominate the boards and provide great leadership. Also, KG has a great midrange game and a good post game. C. Duhon is a solid point guard who can hit the 3 and play good perimeter defense. K. Van Horn is a good shooter and a decent rebounder. Mihm would def. be a servicable center. B. Gordon would be great off of the bench and would provide the spark offensively. This team would win 2 titles, maybe 3.

PG-Duhon
SG-Ben Gordon
SF-Jason Kapono
PF-Kevin Garnett
C-Tim Duncan

duhon, kapono, and gordon spreads the floor extremely well. so I decided on 2 bigs. Duncan and KG are both extremely good defenders, and rebounders. Both unselfish, both have a large arsenal in their offensive games. try to double them inside, the shooters will kill you. no frontcourt can contend with KG/Duncan. their perimeter defense isn't the best, but at least there won't be many easy layups.

This team would not get to the western conference finals. Who is the main option, Yao? He's hurt all the time. He's also not a main option on a team, neither is Pau Gasol.

C Dwight Howard/Chris Mihm

Title? 80%

If not this year maybe then next. Williams will continue to amaze and if he could get a reliable guy to pass to down low (aka someone who's not Carlos Boozer) it would be incredible. And Howard is still a youngin' whose only getting better. This team has a good set of shooters, and with Howard and Thomas on the boards they should be able to get the job done.

(I don't even want to think about cursing my team by putting a Collins on my team, I would cut him before even aquiring Williams or Howard.

ith any two ssuperstars this would be the best team in the league. THey would have everything needed in back ups and key role players to start like Duhan, Gordon, Horry, Jones. Put any two superstars with them and they are great! They got defense in Najera, Horry, Mim, Collins, Thomas and scoring with the superstars and Gordon.

It depends. If Chris Mihm can return to his pre-injury form, then he is an adequate starting center in this league, which changes things. Most people don't know him, but he was decent.
