The choices are Dwight, or Shaq. Build a contender around your choice, and defend your reasoning. There are two catches, you can only surround them with current players in current form, and you have the following cap space limit: 42,296,914. Discuss.

lol, what??? I don't see how Shaq doesn't take this 100% to 0%. Even Howards mama would pick Shaq to build around.

Or do you mean shaq TODAY?

PG: Stephen Curry (11 mil) - Damien Lillard (3 mil)
SG: Klay Thompson (3 mil) - Danny Green (4 mil)
SF: Kawhi Leonard (3 mil) - Draymond Green (1 mil)
PF: Anthony Davis (6 mil) - Dirk Nowitzki - (7 mil)
C: Shaq (free) - Andre Drummond (3 mil)

Less than 42 mil for all 10.

Why is Shaq free?

Questions.

1. How much are Shaq and Howard supposed to be paid in this scenario?

2. How old are each player? Are we talking about from the day they were drafted throughout their entire career? Because Shaq would be taken 10 times out of 10.

Both are prime, and the cap limit doesn't apply to either, only to the rest of the team. Sorry for not clarifying that.

Everyone will choose Shaq here, it is an extremely easy choice.

I think he wants us to orchestrate the best team with either Shaq/Dwight. Really stupid option, though. Not even Dwight would choose Dwight.

Let's change the players. Lebron James or Mike Miller? go!

To be fair, Dwight was recently considered the next Shaq by some if he maxed his potential.

LOL, I sense a bit of bait in the choices... But I'll play along

Shaq 101 times/100


Liliard (3)/Beverley (1)
Butler (2)/Thompson (3)
Wiggins (6)/Leonard (3)
Milsap (9.5)/ Patterson (6)
Shaq/Whiteside (0.8)

Roughly around 34.4 million. Have 10 Million under the "cap" to waste lol

Maybe Swap one of the stretch 4s for Aldridge instead

yea but clearly, CLEARLY he never made that step. I have never heard even the biggest homer magic fan or rockets fan ever suggest, or even hint, that he did

I've been waiting for the moment for this one!


Mike James/ Jason Williams
Rasual Butler/Demarcus Cousins
Mike Miller/Ricky Davis
Brian Scalabraine/Antoine Walker
Mark Madsen/Javale Mcgee

You shouldn't be able to pick anybody still on their first contract. This is way too easy if you can just grab all the dudes who by design are being drastically underpaid.

PG: Curry ($11) - Beverly ($1)
SG: Korver ($6) - Carter ($4) - Jones ($1)
SF: Pierce ($5) - Smith ($2)
PF: Nowitzki ($8) - Brand ($2) - Gooden ($1)
C: O'Neal - Whiteside ($1)

I like that rule. Great idea.

Why is Jared Jeffries not an option? Can he be a third option?

This guy is obsessed with the Rockets. I can't believe people are seriously replying to this bait attempt. Almost every thread he makes there is something about Harden/Dwight/Rockets.

Shaq, or the guy labeled the next shaq. Nevermind what team he is currently on, it's a valid comparison.

Annnnd Greg Oden was labeled as the next great NBA center. Andrew Bynum was labeled as the next best center. Kwame Brown was labeled as the next great NBA center as well. Dwight couldn't sniff Shaq's armpit. Compare him to Ewing or Alonzo... Shaq is a top 10 player and arguably the most dominating specimen in NBA history. Dwight is a buffoon who after 10 years, still relies on the same post moves... Give me a break. Not to mention he's not even rebounding/defending at a high level (which were the only two advantages he ever had on Shaq).

14-0 for Shaq. I think that settles it.

Pretty much.

The fact that it took this long for people to identify this pathetic and sad bait attempt is rather disappointing.

I guess in all fairness Dwight is the better defender. But it's still Shaq every day of the week.

Dwight plus Harden and Beverley, then with the remaining money just any scrubs I can afford.

Wait... wasn't that Houston's formula?

This wasn't for you. It was for SpokenJesus or whatever he's called (Houston's top troll/bottom *****). Pay no mind. I don't actually believe it. Just killing time.
