hed be a top 10 player in the nba

Probably would have made it to the H.O.F. hell if he started his whole career he would still be a top 10 PG in the league right now I'm sure.

05-11-2013, 02:52 PM
I'm not so sure he'd be a top pg if he was 6'2'' or 6'3''. He definitely had to work a lot harder then he would've if he was taller. Also he benefits from being so small by being able to fit through gaps and being able to get into areas of the paint bigger players can't.

He'd be 6MOY. Doesn't change his instincts though, hes not a great starting PG, hes a great scorer. I honestly think being so short adds some corkiness to his game that he uses to his advantage. Defensively he'd be much better.

if he was 6'2 he game would be completely different though, wouldnt have that low center of gravity and would lose some quickness.

Monta Ellis 2.0

05-11-2013, 03:20 PM
Would be better than Michael Jordan.

05-11-2013, 03:21 PM
I really don't think his offensive game would change all that much. He is a streaky scorer and a poor distributor. It would help on defense though.

A better question is - how good would Lebron be if he was 7' 5" and he was just as fast, strong, athletic, with sick handles?

An even better question: what if Lebron was 8' 0"? Woah!

The best question though is: Why am I trolling this thread? Scientists believe we'll never know.

If he was 6'2 he would be playing football.

The G.O.A.T of course. No doubt about it. LeBron who?

05-11-2013, 04:20 PM
hed be an allstar most likely if he were that tall

05-11-2013, 04:33 PM
Well. Considering the fact that you need to work your *** off to even be in the league with his height, I would believe he would have been a potential all-star player at 6'3, if he kept the same work ethic as he has now.

I believe he has one of the best work ethics in the league.

05-11-2013, 04:39 PM
He'll be JR Smith because he would still be too damn cocky, Chucker and kinda immature.

05-11-2013, 04:42 PM
Yep i always thought this. If he was 6'3 he would probably even be top 5 best players in the nba. Thats assuming he would keep the same athpetic ability. Little nate is a freak athlete.

05-11-2013, 04:54 PM
He would've been drafted a lot higher than 17th.

05-11-2013, 04:55 PM

Nah.. As dumb as Nate acts he has a much higher basketball IQ than JR.

05-11-2013, 05:30 PM
I'd say he'd need to be more like 6'5ish for his style of game. He's really a shooting guard naturally. He comes across as a scorer, not a play maker. So I think he'd still be undersized at 6'3 (like Ben Gordon). But that may just be me.

He's a great talent and a hard worker, no doubt.

05-11-2013, 05:47 PM
If he was like 6'5" he would be a lot better defensively, at the very least. If he were still able to keep his athleticism, he would not have a problem trying to get a multi year deal.

05-11-2013, 05:56 PM
he would probably be in a long term contract by now.

too selfish on offense however and he's too self indulged at times. Come on. yesterday was something. hyping himself up after a ball deflection that went out of bounds. thats JR Smith/ Joahkim Noah style.

05-11-2013, 06:06 PM
Nah.. As dumb as Nate acts he has a much higher basketball IQ than JR.

Yea Nate is a lot smarter than J.R. as far as b-ball IQ goes.

05-11-2013, 06:08 PM
He would still not be as good as a 5"11" Allen Iverson.

05-11-2013, 07:47 PM
He'd be worse....some guys are better small....adding size, even with his speed makes him easier to body.

His lack of height makes it much easier to get around and below people. He becomes a gnat. He isn't good enough to be elite and overcome additional size he would have, he loses what makes him an annoyance on the court.;

05-11-2013, 07:47 PM
He'd be gooder at da game of baksketball if him was that tall and stuff.

05-11-2013, 08:17 PM
jonny flynn comes to mind
