I know there are some which are easy to pick but then there teams like the bobcats who don't necesarily have an all-star, or like the Heat who have 2 superstars. Who do you see as the face of your favorite team and why?

Probably Ty Lawson.

It's a big toss up... Danny Granger for now, Roy Hibbert and Paul George could both become it in the future.

Now: Probably David Lee, Andrew Bogut or Stephen Curry.

All Time: Rick Barry.

Greg Monroe. If Drummond can reach his potential it will be him.

Even with the addition of Iguadola?

I would say so, even despite Iguodala's higher profile as an All-Star and Olympian. Lawson is the engine that makes the Nuggets offense go; they pretty much live or die by how well he plays. The series against the Lakers illustrated that pretty clearly, so I'm sure you got a good look at what I'm talking about. Everything the Nuggets do is bent towards speed, and Ty's the prime mover in that regard. His game both reflects and defines Denver's game.

I think Michael Jordan is the face of the Bobcats franchise.

Doug Collins

But it will eventually be Bynum, Holiday, or Turner.

LaMarcus Aldridge is the face of my favorite team, although I doubt he's a championship-level leader. We need a new face in Portland. Aldridge can be the talented sidekick.

For the Timberwolves, the answer may not be as easy as some people think, which would be Love.

I would say Love, but Rubio is bringing a huge new fan base to the team (see timbertrolls(seriously, google them)). Love puts up the big numbers, and when we win, is often the reason we won, but Rubio is putting people in the seats, and making the wolves fun to watch, not just for the hometown crowd, but on a national level as well.

Prince has declined a lot since the 04 Championship and is nothing more than just a vet now, whereas Monroe has become THE power in this team.


Greg Monroe.

Don't you mean Gram Monroe? ;)

its still wade, at least for me. he's spent his entire career in miami and brought us our first title. he was also largely responsible for lebron and bosh signing here along side him as well. lebron is the better player and he deserves his hype and promos when advertising heat games, but he's only been here 2 years. wade's name and image has been attached to the franchise for too long for that to change yet. its not like wade left when lebron arrived, wade is still playing at a high level in a heat uniform. hell, i still have trouble wrapping my head around the fact that lebron is in miami sometimes lol.

perfect answer. Honestly, Love is by far and away our best player, but Rubio will most likely be the fan favorite (isnt that the face of the franchise) for a number of years.

um, no. For the last 15 months, its LeBron's team. I would argue previous to that, but what is the point?
