If you could pick any 3 players in the NBA to start a Franchise around who would it be?

We all know several teams have a legitimate 3 Players. But you being a GM and having an option of picking any 3 stars who would you pick?

I personally take:

Chris Paul: Easily the Best pg in the NBA.

Dwight Howard: Points, Rebounds, Blocks.

Lebron James: Name says it all...

These 3 are all young too and have many more years in the League.

lol @ a thread being over before it starts. (not being mean, just funny.)

Great idea, but I think that's pretty obvious.

If he was 5 years younger, then for sure. But the fact is he is over 30 years old and is going to start declining soon, so there is no reason to build around him.

Andrew Bynum, Derron Williams, and Chris Bosh.

D-Williams and C-Bosh to run pick and roll all night long, and Bynum for defense and rebounding.

You could never get those three players on the same team, so don't waste our time with your day dreams. You want a good, realistic threesome to start a team around? It would be Kevin Durant, Russel Westbrook, and Jeff Green.

If I wanted to win this year, then Duncan, Kobe, and Paul. For building a team to compete for years, Paul, LeBron, and Howard. For sure.

If I wanted to win a few titles over the next 3 yrs., my team would look like this, Kobe, Duncan and Billups.

Now, for the future, Lebron, Chris Bosh and D. Granger. I don't think you have to have 3 superstars to win a title(s), but a team definitely needs one superstar and another all-star type player around. Adding another all star type player to the team is definitely icing on the cake. (similar to Boston with KG (superstar), Pierce (allstar), R. Allen (allstar)

you should make it 1 allstar, 1 star, and 1 role player so that there is actually more debate..

Paul, Amar'e, Gay.

Paul and Amar'e running the pick and roll all day would be sikk to watch. Gay because the man can fly high for the alleyoops!

Mike James, and Wally Szczerbiak, and that's it you really don't need a 3rd, 4th or 5th.

Pretty much like having Larry Bird and Michael Jordan.
