Which would you rather have from your best player? Option A) or Option B)


Option A) 21+ ppg/10+ rpg on 50% FG average
or
Option B) 25+ ppg/5+ rpg/5+ apg on 46% FG


If you had to decide which of those would you rather have from your best player?


Also which player is more than likely a superstar?

Option A for a PF/C; Option B for a PG/SG/SF

Both are likely superstars

It depends how they are defensively. And your use of the (+) bit on every stat is stupid- a guy who scores 21+ ppg could score any number of ppg more than 21...

That said- just choosing from using the numbers you have there, I'll take the efficient big man.

The wing is more likely to be the superstar, though.

The big man.

However, if it turns out that the big man is Zach Randolph, and the wing is Dwyane Wade, I think I'd take Wade...

lol, its just JB hating on Kobe again.

If you guys haven't realize, Kobe's career avgs are 25.1 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 4.6 APG, 45.5% from the field.

JB 'randomly' comes up with 25 PPG, 5 RPG, 5 ApG, 46% from the field. If you round Kobe's career numbers, that's exactly what you get.

:pity:

How is that hate? It was a controlled experiment to see what people think without the star labels.

My hatred for Bryant aside, I still would say option B. The mere fact that Option A, seems to be much more attainable than option B. I don’t want to take the time look up stats, but I believe there many more people hovering around Option A as opposed to Option B.

I understand the question, but I don't understand the rational.

Does anyone else realize this is a team sport? Both those stat lines would make great players, but the better question is which player would fit their team, or what intangibles that player brings, or defense, or turn over ratio, or clutch performance.

I realize it's a simple either or, but I'm going with neither, I'd rather have a winner, and that's measured in rings. So give me MJ or Horry, or Russell, or Milkan.

if the player is on the knicks, or high scoring team, then doesn't count, but I choose option 2.

option A for me becuase bulls need low post.
Option B if im rebuilding

I'd take the guy who gives you 20/10 every night... I think they're slightly rarer, and are usually integral to a championship team.

Option A: Solid bigman.

Option B: Hall of Famer.

Option B because bigs who put up 20 10 aren't exactly winning players a la Zach Randolph.

I can't recall a guard/SF who avergaed 25 5 5 and didn't get far.

Haha, why is it hating on Kobe...? You could say he's hating on Tim Duncan or Kevin Garnett who are both 20/10 career guys.

He's giving you the option, not forcing you in the direction of one.

:confused:

It is random stats. How the hell is using 25/5/5 using bad numbers? If I used 25/5/5 on 50% then what? That means not one player in the league would meet that criteria.

Also I believe Al Jefferson one year averaged 21/11 on 50%

Depends on what kind of team I'm trying to build.

If I'm going for the defensive juggernaut kind of squad, I'd take the 20/10/+50% FG. I'm gona make the assumption that he is a rock down there in the post, and can anchor a team like a Duncan has.

If I'm a high flying offensive minded team, I'm gona take option B; player B is more capable of brining a team back from behind, more capable of carrying the offensive load night in a night out. Player B has more control over the teams offensive than player A.

Player B is more likely to be a super star cause his game is gona be more pretty, more marketable.

This question is essentially Duncan or Kobe. Both have been very successful, either choice would be a good one.

Carter can be added to that list... seems now that his stats will be a bit lower he may get further than he ever has lol.

to fill my teams needs (raptors) i would choose option A. Our best player does option A, all day all day

heres the thing right, 25/5/5 is accounting for 35 points and 5 rebounds where 21/10 is just accounting for 21 points. The extra rebounds are nice but if you could get me 21 pts 10 boards and 2-3 blocks per game then maybe, because you're accounting for point differential.

Caron Butler averaged pretty much close to 20/6/5 on 46% shooting his past two seasons. I wouldnt consider him a superstar. So adding 5 points to that, I wouldnt really see it being THAT big of a deal, but a person who can average 21/10 with 50% shooting I would rather see be my teams best player.

Yes, but adding 5 more ppg is a big difference.

If option B is a crack at Kobe it does not matter because I am still choosing option B regardless of who it is that just makes my case stronger for option B

Option A, Im more traditional i this sense, i'd like my chance better with a post presence that i can put shooters and complimentary pieces around, not to say you couldnt with a dynamic wing but i thing those guys have to work alot harder for their buckets and the offense i think can have a better flow with a post guy, just my preference

When you throw 5 assists on to player B he becomes a lot better then A.

GodsSon
10-27-2009, 10:05 AM
i'll take option B...he's rebounding and distributing, while also putting up good scoring numbers

But those 5 extra rebounds can account for boxing out and denying the opposing team an offensive rebound. If the offensive player grabs the 5 rebounds and lays it in that's 10 points. Most 20/10 big men usually get 2-3 assists a game because of the double teams down low, that gives you another 4-6 points and they might block 1.5-2 shots, that's another 4 points. So if your going to use your formula the big man can be accounted for about 40 points...

Oh I know, but im just saying. I can see first hand what that is sorta like having a person average 25/5/5 on 46%. If he took four more shots and made half, he would be at 25 and I really still wouldnt consider him a superstar.

But having a person average 21 points and 10 rebounds on 50%, that is all-star, dominate numbers.

Does option B also have 4 rings? If so, I'll take option B.

Not any particular players, just which player would you want as your best player on a team.

I might change my answer...

How many assists is Player A averaging?
