View Full Version : If you were a GM, what kind of championship formula would you build?

Meaning would you go the route of signing a couple of big names and some fillers. Or would you try to build the ultimate "team", like Detroit's championship team or even Dallas from this past year.

If I'm starting from scratch I'd like to follow the Thunder/Spurs model

Depends the market. Some teams are in bigger markets where it would be attractive to disgruntled players leaving other teams (e.g New York, LA, etc).

In general I would build within and allow the younger players to grow together, but if I'm in an attractive market I would likely acquire one semi-allstar via free agency.

I would follow the Spurs model. I would preach offense and defense.

The two star formula one has to be a big the other a wing player. Fill out the roster with players that understand their roles, at least one 3 point specialist and everyone buys into defense.

The simplest answer is this: You find an elite player.

In last 20 years only ONE team has won a title without having at least one sure fire HoFer (top 20 all time kinda guy).

I'd get the best hard nose defensive minded pass first PG I can get, I get a defensive minded C with humility and an incredibly strong work ethic on and off the court, a lights out SG and SF and a defensive minded rebounding PF.

My bench would be fully of gritty role players that have all the heart and determination in the world.

My coach would be a coach that preaches fundamentals and discipline and strives to develop players. A coach that believes if you do the right things in practice and have character guys you can trust them to do the right things game day.

Hmm .. tough question, depends on your current situation I guess .. Would love to rebuild like the Thunder did BUT that doesn't always work out for example the Blazers were supposed to be contending for a title by now but injuries to Oden/Roy have clearly stopped that .. other way I would go is some type of Heat way and sign the Elite players and fill in role players aorund them .. really depends on your cap situation and current players i guess tho

Something similar to the Pistons' formula or the Knicks teams from the 90s, the focus being on defense and depth. I'd fire the entire scouting department and pay top dollar for the best scouts in the business, then get a big name like a Larry Brown or someone else with an impressive track record (not some cheap coaching hires like the Hawks owners have been doing) and promote the brand like never before.

Superstar PG(pass first/shooter) and C, a 3pt specialist SG or SF, a slasher SG or SF, a defensive PF, and a 6th man scorer off the bench.

Ideally something like

PG:CP3/Dwill
SG:Young SG with fast legs for slashing
SF:Mike Miller/D Wright/R Lewis
PF:Honestly any decent Vet PF that can play pure D would fit well here
C:Dwight Howard/Bogut/
6th: Jr Smith/Jamal Crawford/J Terry, basically anyone pure offense

i'd do whatever i had to do find a young superstar reguardless of position. once you have that you can go from there and build your team accordingly.
