Can you build a Championship team around Gilbert Arenas where is hands down the best player on the team?

I believe so, I atctually feel though that he is better served as a SG. I think a PG like Randy Foye ain't bad, and Butler is a good 2nd-3rd option (but better fit IMO as a 3rd option), and I feel that though Jamison is really good, I feel Wiz should trade him to get a big man who can be a 2nd option to Gilbert Arenas (who'll be the 1st option). A tandem of Arenas-BIG MAN (my thinking is a guy like Amare Stoudamire)-Butler with Foye and couple of role players and a really good 6th man should put them in contention for a title.

He isn't the hands down best on that team. You have 2 guys for sure that can be considered better in Jefferson and Boozer.

If you don't agree Arenas is hands down better than all those players than I'll take it a notch down and still bet this team could win the championship...

PG- Gilbert Arenas
SG- Andre Iguadola
SF- Caron Butler
PF- David West

Did I understand the question correctly??

If not, then I'll just agree with Mavrix's post.


By the way Mavrix, clever username

Mavs + Matrix (Shawn Marion) = Mavrix

I actually made the username before Shawn Marion was signed...

If you pronounce my username it's just like saying Mavericks :)

Boozer had his chance in Utah, but injuries and Deron Williams taking over like a beast made him less valuable than the best player on the jazz (D-Will), and heck, even less valuable than Paul Milsap, lol


And for Al Jeff, I feel Arenas has had a better career as the main guy on his team than Al Jefferson (so far)

Glbert threads always go down south; EX: "oh he ain't worth the max contract," When was the last time he was healthy?" "Jeez he needs to just shut up," "He like Kanye West, talented but arrogant."


arenas doesnt have what it takes. he is too arrogant.

My point.

Arenas is hands down out of those guys, Kinda doubt it. I'd take anyone of those guys over Arenas. Allen and Lewis are more durable and have had just as good of careers but Arenas might have a slightly bigger name. But the other two I'd take over Arenas anyday.

Doubt that team beats LA, San Antonio, a healthy Boston or even Orlando and Cleveland.

To answer the question, no, Arenas isn't as good as some would like to believe. Maybe if the whole bench looks like the starting line Mavrix has up there.

If everyone in that line up is healthy then yes they can beat Boston, LA, Cleveland, Orlando, and definitely San Antonio.

My point.
They are all pretty much true.

Never healthy.
Not worth a max contract.
Very arrogant player who has won nothing.

Let the bashing begin ....

I don't know how you possibly think that team is better than the Lakers or even the Celtics, Cavs or Magic. That team really only is better than the Lakers at PG, but Kobe and Gasol more make up for that difference. Plus, Odom off of the bench is better than whatever that team would have on their bench.

This is the best team I could come up with. I think at this point, healthy Arenas, is better than any of these players.

You can't look at a team on paper before it plays a single game and predict they won't win the championship. That's just idiotic.

yes,but you could load the team up with good/great def players.

its def doable,many already proposed could do it(if there's no such thing as ego's or injuries getting in the way)

It's a simple question on if you can build a team around a player that is considered an elite player that is a championship team.
