    Best 2,3,4 or Best 1,5?

    this is something I was sitting around thinking today. Would you rather have the best 2/3/4 in the NBA on your team or the best 1/5 if you were looking to build a championship team?

    obviously 3 players is better than 2 but most believe the 1 and the 5 are the most important positions on the floor. Let's assume the rest of your team is just league average players.

    So depending on who you like something like

    Wade/Kobe
    Lebron
    Love/Dirk

    vs.

    Paul/Rose
    D12

    Which option would you take and who would be your squad core?

    You stacked the deck. Of course you'd rather have 3 top players than 2 top players. You'd have to change it to PG/C vs. Wing/Forward.

    Mathematically, 3 players are greater than 2.

    I was thinking maybe the importance of a PG (has ball in his hands at all times) and a C (clogs the paint on both ends, runs P&R etc) is harder to guard for league average players than the 2/3/4 which can at times be played well by good versatile players.

    There are more decent/good players at the 2/3/4 than the 1/5 it seems to me.

    maybe I am crazy, but I was thinking about it more in depth. The way people would play together, what the other players on the team could do.

    IDK maybe it is to hard without adding in the league average players that fill out the rest of the lineup.

    3 vs 2 makes it too easy. Duncan could take care of Dwight while LeBron/Kobe dealt with Paul or Rose or whichever PG you picked leaving some scrub to matchup with LeBron or Kobe

    I voted before i even read the question. I thought that this was the mlb forum and someone was asking about starting pitching. Anyways my answer is the same so it doesnt matter

    It really depends on the rest of the squad.

    The 1-5 with a top 6th man and a deep, balanced roster vs a 'Big 3' filled out with vet mins and late draft picks?

    Gimme the balanced attack revolved around a 1-5 superstar pick and roll game.

    BTW, right here and now, Rondo is the best PG in the NBA.

    You gotta account for that 3rd superstar taking up the rest of the cap space and not allowing you to sign a top 6th man, defensive C, PG, or top role players.

    easily 2-3-4, if there the best they can play multi positions. Duncan playing 4-5, but the rest of the team matters as well

    I think a better question is do you take the 2 and 4 or the 1 and 5. Taking the 3 out of the equation eliminates the quantity issue as well as the "Lebron is the best player on the planet" issue.
