2008 Redeem Team


PG: Jason Kidd (Dallas Mavericks) - now with the New York Knicks
SG: Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers)
SF: Carmelo Anthony (Denver Nuggets) - now with the New York Knicks
PF: LeBron James (Cleveland Cavaliers) - now with the Miami Heat
C: Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic) - biggest name in trade talks, can end up in BKN, HOU or LAL, most likely will not stay with Orlando

Bench

Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat)
Michael Redd (Milwaukee Bucks) - now with the Phoenix Suns (UFA)
Tayshaun Prince (Detroit Pistons)
Chris Paul (New Orleans Hornets) - now with the Los Angeles Clippers
Deron Williams (Utah Jazz) - now with the Brooklyn Nets
Carlos Boozer (Utah Jazz) - now with the Chicago Bulls
Chris Bosh (Toronto Raptors) - now with the Miami Heat





It's just very surprising to see so many of our guys representing our nation 4 yrs ago to be changing teams and franchises like its nothing.


Thoughts.





And Predict which guys on the current 2012 team won't be with the same NBA franchise 4 yrs later:

PG: Chris Paul (Los Angeles Clippers)
SG: Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers)
SF: Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder)
PF: LeBron James (Miami Heat)
C: Tyson Chandler (New York Knicks)

Bench

Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks)
Deron Williams (Brooklyn Nets)
Anthony Davis (New Orleans Hornets)
Kevin Love (Minnesota Timberwolves)
Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder)
James Harden (Oklahoma City Thunder)
Andre Iguodala (Philadelphia 76ers)


My guess of the guys who will switch teams in 4 yrs are 6 guys: CP3, KLove, Melo, Harden, Iggy and Chandler.

Well I mean obviously Kobe will be retired by then, but he doesn't fit the criteria of what I'm asking; however, I see your point.


You really think Westy will be moved over Harden?

Interesting.

Harden will most likely be the one to be move considering he's due for a contract extension which puts the Thunder FO in a tight rope.

Chandler, Harden, Love, Igoudala, and maybe Bron will be on different teams by then.

Well Iguodala is a given, in my opinion, but I'll also add Harden, Chandler, and possibly Love. Though I think his T'Wolves will have a competitive roster.

Actually, Pippen ended in a Bulls uniform, and all those guys you just mentioned in the "ended with different team" did so in the twilight of their career. I mean, look at the year difference.


92 dream team: all those players
Malone: retired 12 yrs later
Pippen: retired 12 yrs later
Stockton: retired 11 yrs later
Ewing: retired 10 yrs later
Jordan: just had a bunch of retirements before he finally retired 11 yrs later
Robinson: retired 12 yrs later
Barkley: retired 8 yrs later


Basically, my point is all those guys retired with different teams, but really joined those teams or switched teams in the twilights of their careers, with the exception of Charles, who was traded from Philly to PHX.



All those guys I listed from the 08 Redeem Team switched teams while being in their prime.



HUGE DIFFERENCE!
