    What if players played for their geographical region? (teams inside)

    http://www.depressedfan.com/basketba...-nba-teams.php
    Have you ever wondered what the NBA would look like if there was no draft? If teams instead signed players from their immediate geographic region?
    My 4 favorites from this list:
    Bobcats:
    PG Chris Paul (Clemmons, NC)
    SG Ray Allen (Dalzell, SC)
    SF Josh Howard (Winston-Salem, NC)
    PF Antawn Jamison (Charlotte, NC)/David West (Garner, NC)
    C Kevin Garnett (Mauldin, SC)

    Bulls:
    PG Derrick Rose (Chicago, IL)
    SG Dwyane Wade (Oak Lawn, IL)
    SF Andre Iguodala (Springfield, IL)/Wilson Chandler (Benton Harbor, MI)
    PF Corey Maggette (Oak Park, IL)
    C Eddy Curry (South Holland, IL)

    Wizards:
    PG Allen Iverson (Hampton, VA)
    SG Jeff Green (Hyattsville, MD)
    SF Carmelo Anthony (Towson, MD)
    PF Kevin Durant (Rockville, MD)/Michael Beasley (Prince George’s County, MD)
    C Rudy Gay (Severn, MD)

    Knicks:
    PG Ben Gordon (Mount Vernon, NY)
    SG Ron Artest (Queens, NY)
    SF Lamar Odom (South Jamaica, NY)
    PF Elton Brand (Peekskill, NY)/Ryan Gomes (Waterbury, CT)
    C Charlie Villanueva (Queens, NY)
    I think this would be the better NY Knicks team:
    PG Stephon Marbury (Coney Island, NY)/Rafer Alston (Queens, NY)
    SG Ben Gordon (Mount Vernon, NY)
    SF Ron Artest (Queens, NY)
    PF Lamar Odom (South Jamaica, NY)/Charlie Villanueva (Queens, NY)
    C Elton Brand (Peekskill, NY)/Joakim Noah (New York, NY)

    Thoughts?

    I have discussed this before. Its interesting. Its funny how much better the knicks would be with just local talent.

    I always thought they should have a round robin tournament like this in the summer. It would be entertaining and players would have more pride involved.

    ^I like it but Im thinking that team would be competing for a playoff spot at best

    Going back to the North Carolina team, here are some backups:

    PG Chris Paul (Clemmons, NC), Raymond Felton (S.C)
    SG Ray Allen (Dalzell, SC)
    SF Josh Howard (Winston-Salem, NC)/Chris Wilcox (Whiteville, NC)
    PF Antawn Jamison (Charlotte, NC)/David West (Garner, NC)
    C Kevin Garnett (Mauldin, SC)/Jermaine O'Neil (Columbia, SC)/Brendan Haywood (Greensboro, NC)

    Coach: Nate McMillan (Raleigh, Chowan, and NC State)

    They definately wouldn't be the best, but would make it to the playoffs every year and be a dangerous lower seeded team.

    The Los Angeles Lakers Regional team

    PG - Jason Kidd
    SG - Baron Davis/Gilbert Arenas
    SF - Paul Pierce/Tayshaun Prince
    PF - Drew Gooden
    C - Tyson Chandler

    Kidd and Gooden are on the Warriors.
    Davis and Chandler are on the Clippers.

    Not to mention you got Raymond Felton backing up Chris Paul.

    Yeah, that team is pretty sick. The one concern though is they have no shooting, and in a half court offense, that lane is going to be clogged as hell. All of those 4 guys except for Lou aren't shooters, and they need the ball close to the basket to be effective. Can't have 4 guys at the rim in a half court offense.
