To help pass the time in the offseason this is a new quick game that I made up where two legendary athletes are playing 1 on 1. The real challenge is not who would win but how one player would handle guarding the other.

The person who posts first (in this case me) will name the offensive player and the defensive player. The offensive player gets 10 possessions to try and score. Both players are assumed to be in their prime.

The next poster quotes the matchup and predicts how many possessions the offensive player would score out of 10 with a brief reason and then posts the new matchup. The game continues with that new matchup.

Example:

Offensive Player: Steve Nash
Defensive Player: Gary Payton

Prediction: Nash would score 4 out of 10 possessions against the Glove. He's crafty enough around the basket to get a few. Also his perimeter shot would force Payton to D him up tight but this plays right into Payton's hands. I see him holding Nash under 50% for that matchup.

New matchup
Offensive Player: Shaquille O'Neal
Defensive Player: Kevin Garnett

Go! :)

Shaq would score 7 out of 10 times because Shaq is a legit center who is much to big for KG

Offense: Prime Tmac
Def: Prime Kobe

Same one I did lol

I say Tmac scores 6 out of 10 times because how versatile he was in his prime. Good shooter great finisher near the basket and could post up. Kobe played great defense in his prime but 6 out of 10 for tmac is what I say

Prediction: 4 out of 10
Iverson would chuck 5-6 jumpers and hit 1 of them. Then he'd attack the rim and score on 3 of his last 4 possessions.

:laugh: You can say that again.

Prediction: Blake scores 5 out of 10. Blake would miss 2-3 shots on his own and old KG would flash for another 2-3 misses. That matchup feels like a 50-50.

Offensive Player: Magic Johnson
Defensive Player: Michael Jordan

MJ would score 7 out of 10 times because he's the GOAT scorer skill wise and efficiency wise for a guard

Lebron is the best help defender in the nba, but guys like Iggy, deng, etc are a bit better perimeter d wise

MJ is almost as athletic as Lebron, MJ would score four in a row, Lebron would then d him up tighter andy miss two in a row.

But then MJ would adjust finish out making the last 3 out of 4

Vince would score 5/10. In his Prime he was incredible. He'll chuck some shots and miss the first few and then start driving on Kobe and probably dunk on him once or twice.

I feel like Nash would score 6 times out of 10. Nash is crafty and can shoot in a variety of ways. Westbrook is just becoming a great defender. Westbrook may go for the gamble steals.

Tim Duncan is too crafty, even the best cant stop him. He shoots 6-10 on KG.

And please don't include Mike James shattering the backboard on an alley oop in your reasoning. This would get him technical and he is smart enough to avoid that
