Kind of a weird scenario, but it might fix up some probable misconceptions I have about efficiency, etc.:

Who helps the 2013 Bobcats get more wins if added to the roster: 2001 MVP Iverson or 2013 Steph Curry?

Not comparing careers, just those seasons of course. They have fairly similar WS and WS/48 and of course the differing production and efficiency of production.

Yeah, but the guy missed 15 shots a game and passed it less than Curry did. But, Iverson also got to the line a ridiculous amount more. But, Curry hit threes at an insane rate. But, Iverson probaby had the better positive intangibles. But, Iverson also probably had the worse negative intangibles.

01 Iverson, what he did with those 76ers teams was unreal.

Yeah, and I think that team was built specifically for him. But, if you're on a rebuilding team such as the Bobcats, do you take a volume guy like AI or an efficiency guy like Curry?

If I was rebuilding around one I'd take Steph Curry. I loved Iverson and he was great, had a few amazing runs with those early 2000 sixers teams.. but he's just too tiny, too inefficient, and a little too selfish to really be the center piece of a championship team.

AI was better at taking over a game and would probably make the Bobcat better next year then Curry would but for the long haul you take Curry and its not close

Iverson was the alpha male which is what this Bobcats team needs so I'll go with him. Yes Curry is a star but IMO he hasn't separated himself from the rest of the bunch like A.I. did. To be honest I don't think Curry can carry a team by himself the way A.I. did.
