On the Raptors forum, there is a discussion about what type of player would you want to build your team around. I thought it was interesting enough to be debated by fans of all teams, to get a wider perspective.

What type of player would you want to build your team around?

I'm personally in favour of the Low Post player, someone that can average 22-12, draw a double every time the ball goes near him, and play excellent D. If Howard had an offensive game he would be my fav player in the L right now.

In a team sport i choose a balanced time on the first place :D

When I think of balanced teams, the first example that comes to mind is the Pistons. Billups, Hamilton, Prince, R. Wallace and B. Wallace. I would rather have a superstar on my team, you almost need one to win a chip. I'm honestly not sure how the Pistons won theirs, I think it was just excellent chemistry and great team defence. Give me one superstar any day though.

Take these examples for each position...

C: Howard
PF: Bosh
SF: Melo
SG: Wade
PG: Paul

I'll say it again, IF Howard had an offensive game, he would be my pick every time. A guy like Shaq... The NBA needs another one.

I want to build my team around a Kevin Durant.

In other words, the perfect human.

Dominant low post scorer but one who could play defense as well.

lets check all the dynasties in NBA history (excluding the Bulls) and see what they all have in common.

No love for the Garnett's of the world? Sure, he couldn't do it on his own, but who could???

Almost went dominant SG but took the balanced team. It's the general recipe for success.

I am surprised so many ppl are going against legit low post scoring C. I mean if he's any good on D put the right guys around him and you are damn near guaranteed to contend.

That's the type of player I would want (in his prime). In the new NBA, I think the 4 is now more important than the 5. An athletic, all around 4 that can dominate both ends in the paint, stretch it out to the md range game, passer from the post, intensity, leadership. That's the best building block today, IMO. But you also need a dominant SG/SF as well. I think it takes two all stars (one interior, one perimeter) to win big.

ill take the star pg all day every day

makes everyone better, get a big man that can jump and some wings that can fly and you dont even need the supporting pieces to contend (a la chris paul, tyson chandler and the hornets a couple years back, facing the spurs in the playoffs)... of course that team has horrible management and has subsequently fallen off the face of the earth

still take it any day...

I think the all around PF has replaced the low post C as the primary building block. That's because of the shift towards more up-tempo play.

I voted for center because that's where you said "dominant low post scorer". He can be a center or a pf, I don't really care, as long as he is a dominant low post scorer.

Give me a 7 foot german who can nail threes and can take his shot whenever he wants it.

They won because the Lakers imploded. The Pistons had 5 double figure scorers so always had backup if one of main players (Rip/Chauncey) had an off night. Lakers had Kobe and Shaq and not a lot else. Payton and Malone were washed up old bums by then, not the HOF's everyone will remember them by.

To quote Phil Jackson, a dominant low post centre! That coming from a guy who would have 0 rings without the 2 best SG's in history.

I'd take the PG to be honest.

There are far more quality PG's in the NBA than legit top centres or top wingmen so do you not think they are less important. The Magic are a contender with only 1 top player and a bunch of decent shooters, which are 10 a penny so it's easier to build around a Centre. If you start with a point guard, you still need a lot more to win. Look at CP3 and DWills, even with good players around them, they haven't yet been contenders for a single title

The only reason the PF has overtaken the C as the more popular post position is because in today's age everyone wants to be able to shoot the 20 footer, including 6'11 and 7'0 guys. So they don't want to be considered centers.

If you find me a 7'0-7'1 guy who loves to bang in the post and is talented on the offensive AND defensive end, give me him 10-10 times.
