When you hear the word "Franchise Player" which of the three options comes to mind most?


Option A) - A Player you can build your team around that can lead your team to a title as the best player on the team?

Option B) - A Player who brings your team's sales and revenue up due to marketability

Option C) - A Player that is constantly an allstar player in the league



If you could only use one of those options to describe what a "Franchise Player" is, which option would you chooose?

Option A: Isn't that the whole idea, to bring a championship to your team.

With any luck, all 3 apply. But the Pacers sure could use option B right now.

I mean, wasn't Allen Iverson a franchise player? Karl Malone? Patrick Ewing? If your best player gets fans excited about coming to games and your team wins games, doesn't that qualify you as a franchise player?

Choice "A" should be the obvious selection for everyone

If one of them applies, most likely all three will.

Well it doesn't necessarily have to be someone who has won a title, but at least someone who is good enough to lead a team to the finals a few times.

A combination of A and B.

and C would be a result of those two.

If you have a player that gives you option A, he will be option C. And winning a championship means option B. If you want fans in the seats...win. Look at San Antonio. They have Tim Duncan. He has lead his team to 4 titles, with that came all star appearances, and because his team wins, they get more revenue.

Option A but with an addition, someone who is like throughout the league, and by mostly everybody, is a good role model for fans.

I'm thinking B, but I'm a bit of a cynic.
