Stephen Curry Or John Wall? I love both but i'll go with Curry

Derrick Rose or Russel Westbrook? Great PG's but give me Rose.

Dirk Nowitzki or Chris Bosh? Very tough choice but Bosh is the better player right now only b/c of age. If we're talking prime Dirk it would've been an easier choice.

Derrick Favors Or Greg Monroe? Monroe

Enes Canter or Jonas Valanciunas? Valunciunas, this guy is talented.

Harrison Barnes or Bradley Beal? Barnes

Andre Drummond Or Roy Hibbert? Right now, Hibbert but Drummond will be better eventually.

And... of course....

Lebron James or Kobe Bryant? Can't go wrong with either. Both are one of the GOAT's but i'll go with LBJ.

I went based off of the guys today not if they were all in their primes.

Curry
Rose (That one was tough. Russell is one of favorite NBA players)
Bosh (for age reasons only)
Favors (more upside with him. Monroe is better now though)
Jonas
Beal (man that was another tough choice)
Drummond
Lebron

Stephen Curry Or John Wall?

- Curry, he's just better, John Wall something about him I just don't like

Derrick Rose or Russel Westbrook?

- Westbrook only because I think Rose is a bit selfish and that hurts his likelihood of winning a title, all flash and no cash for Rose

Dirk Nowitzki or Chris Bosh?

- Dirk, he's better

Derrick Favors Or Greg Monroe?

- Monroe, Favors might be the better choice but I like Monroe

Enes Canter or Jonas Valanciunas?

- As of right now Valanciunas, in a few years who knows

Harrison Barnes or Bradley Beal?

- no opinion

Andre Drummond Or Roy Hibbert?

- Hibbert right now, in a few years who knows

Lebron James or Kobe Bryant?

- After what I believe Kobe is guilty of in Colorada I think he is a horrible human being and the world is worse for him being born, hell of a basketball player though, Lebron by an unmeasurable distance

not sure how anyone can pick Favors over Monroe at the moment. Favors has done nothing in the league to this point while Monroe has been really good the last 3 years and has way more offensive game

Just curious as to why you think this? You talking $$ related, taking too many shots? Just curious. One of them does have the best perimeter shooter in the game as a teammate, and he still finds himself chucking for the most part, while the other has continously had a lack of outside shooting on the floor with him.

Are we talking about at this point in time?

Curry is better ATM and in his prime.
Rose because I like his game better.
Bosh is younger than Dirk and a top 20 player. Dirk also off injury.
Monroe has shown more promise.
Jonas has shown more promise.
Beal will be a legit SG in his prime.
Drummond will be a top 5 player.
Lebron is better than Kobe and Kobe is old and injured.

Westbrook a chucker?

Maybe wrong term, but he isn't all that efficient with his 19 shots per game. Rose isn't either, but he's never had a teammate like Durant to handle the bulk of the scoring. I just remembered hearing Westbrook being criticized for shooting to much in the past.

And... of course....

Lebron James or Kobe Bryant?

My pick: Curry, Westbrook, Dirk, Favors, Canter, Barnes, Hibbert & Lebron


1. Wall. Purely because Curry's ankles scare me big time. If I was assured that he would have no more ankle problems I'd take Curry no doubt. His showing in the playoffs last year really impressed the hell out of me.

2. Rose. He's shown more ability to be an actual PG and two years ago when he got healthy I saw his defense, 3 point shot and playmaking all make a noticeable jump.

3. Dirk. Is this even a fair comparison?

4. Favors. I think he has a lot more upside, although he's less skilled now.

5. Val. Kanter is an amazing rebounder and great defender but Val has true star/franchise player potential and just bulked up a ton this summer, filling in that skinny frame.

6. Beal. Barnes is a beast but I think Beal has more upside, Barnes was more complete right out of the gate and more NBA ready.

7. Drummond. Why would ANYBODY take Hibbert? It took the guy what 4 or 5 years to figure it out? At first he looked like a true bust who couldn't even play a quarter without dying of fatigue. Drummond has already in one year shown signs that he could be the next dominant center in this league and he has limitless upside. I honestly think he may have more upside from where he is now than ANYBODY in the game. He's the next dominant defensive anchor.

8. Lebron James. Any explanation needed? He's better in pretty much every way besides scoring AND he's carried mediocre teams to the finals.

I think I could be wrong about him, but I've always felt he was a bit to much about himself to help his team get a ring, that doesn't mean I don't think he make the finals or win 60 games because I do, and for all the reasons you mention I am willing to eat crow and can acknowledge I may be wrong but its just what I think right now, I don't really have a good or rational reason.

That's fair. Everybody has their own opinion, was just curious about what you said. I do wish Rose would reach out to other players to play for the Bulls, as that seems to be the trend in the NBA these days, but I get why he doesn't do it as well.

My pick: Curry, Westbrook, Dirk, Favors, Canter, Barnes, Hibbert & Lebron

Curry or Wall? Curry. Handily.

Rose or Westbrook. Rose if he's truly 100%.

Favors or Monroe? Not building around either.

Canter or Val. Take my chances on Val.

Barnes or Beal. Again not building around, but rather have Barnes.

Drummond or Hibbert? I'll gamble on Drummond.

Lebron or Kobe? "Build" around? Dumb question.

Curry, Westbrook, Dirk, Monroe, Valanciunas, Beal, Drummond, Lebron.

The penetration/passing from Westbrook and Bron combined with the floor spacing from Curry and Dirk? Beal as the 6th man to provide even more spacing. Then your pick of 3 young bigs in Drummond, Valanciunas and Monroe.

Bold are my picks, I found Drummond v Hibbert the most difficult. Hibbert for the foreseeable future, Drummond if we're talking long term.
