Did you sort of just take the 12 best players already.... How is this supposed to be fun...


Dude do a draft.

You take first in a snake draft.

I'll kill anyone in a draft.... all time or current players.

You will be banned and noone wants to do your stupid drafts. Let me guess Ewing first then Kemp then some other overrated piece of **** because you have a nonsensical argument of ranting you want to go on.

I'd make it you can't use more than 2 allstars in one team and people automatically couldn't choose LeBron, because he doesn't play for those type of teams. Come on people, that is just a joke, don't let the hell break loose on me :)

This sounds a lot like Tod Wilkenson who was just banned for being a dupe.

Thought this thread was about building one team that would win now and in 5 years... That'd be more challenging.

Curry

Now:

Curry
George
James
Dirk
Tyson Chandler

*James would allow curry and george (assuming injuries aren't an issue in this dream scenario) to play off the ball more with lots of open looks. Dirk doesn't need an explanation. And Chandler (im assuiming no salary cap also means no injury) would anchor down low. And between George, Lebron and Chandler, teams would have issues scoring.

5 years:

Westbrook
K Thompson
Durant
Ibaka
M Gasol

*All 5 players can shoot, granted only 2 (thompson and durant) excel at 3s. But Russ, ibaka, and Gasol are pretty automatic mid range. Thompson is good on ball defender, Russ is also really good in that regard. Durant isn't great on defense but isn't a slouch. Ibaka is best shot blocker in league or close to it and on ball defense is improving. M Gasol is smart and one of best defenders in league!

Or i could do OKC 5 years from now because if they keep durant they will be competing:

Russ
Morrow/Lamb
Durant
Ibaka
Adams

Westy, Durant and Ibaka will all certainly be solid players in five years and they'll definitely still be competing if that squad stays together. But Lamb/Morrow and Adams would easily be among the 2-3 worst starters at their respective positions in the entire league.

I am pretty high on Adams. I think he can fit perfect on their team. Before we traded for Noel I was hoping for the sixers to grab him. They don't need him to score just tough rebounding and defense. Lamb/Morrow is different. They need to get another guard in their if Lamb doesn't start putting it together.

We'll see about Adams. He was a pretty solid rotational guy for them last season and had one of the better rookie seasons of any player in the league. But there's such a big gap between being a solid rotational 8th or 9th man and being a legitimate 33+ minute per game center. Lamb made a big improvement last season from his rookie year, but he's also a pretty long way away from being a legit starter.
