Derrick Rose if he bounces back from the knee injury. Irving, Westbrook, or a guy who isn't currently in the league if not.

Paul will only be 32 in five years. Not sure why he would not be just as good as he is now if he stays healthy. Almost zero chance that Westbrook is ever that good.

I'd say that, health notwithstanding, Uncle Drew. Paul and Rondo will be nearing their expiration dates by then, and I don't think Wall has enough game in him to be better than Irving. Andy Harrison I like more than I did Wall at the same point, so I'll give him an outside shot at challenging for the top spot, but he'd only be a third year player by then (assuming he's a one & done).

32 with a balky knee. He won't be consistently dominating the regular season like he did in his younger days. He'll be one of the best distributors in the league, and able to get you double-digit scoring, but his defensive impact is going to be significantly reduced and he'll have to pick his spots on offense.

CP3. Weather he stays in LA or moves to another franchise, he is going to position himself to be a superstar on a good team

This guy would have to at least be a high school senior right now... otherwise no way I see a 20-21 year old being better than those other guys who a majority of which will be in their prime.

Andy Harrison is about the only one I could see. I had high hopes for Myck Kabongo, but he's been erratic over at Texas. I still like him, but I think he's a crack whore's Rajon Rondo.

Norris Cole.
Norris Cole would be like 29 by then. You see how Kobe is struggling at age 33. Unless you think Norris Cole is transcendent like Dwyane Wade.

You could have at least set it up where you mention Cole is 29 and Kobe fell off, and then leave the transcendent Wade for my reply.


You're greedy.

I was going to just mention the Cole being 29... but then I realized I have shit to do so I got in the Cole is 29/Kobe fell off/Wade is transcendent all in one....

Adam seems to be Diabling around these boards though so I don't see you getting new material. Maybe Luke can complement Kobe in a thread?

Or he can make a double handed post in the Pacers forum.


Either way.

Lillard.

He's the new CP3.
He plays nothing like CP3. Lillard is a quick striker and more explosive. Cp3 is a lot more methodical.

John Wall.
I actually feel like that would be my pick too, and I'm a Rubio homer. Look at that list, everyone but maybe Kyrie Irving was drafted onto a team with either a superstar front court teammate, solid management or a great coach. Wall had Gilbert and Blatche in the lockerroom and is on, what, his 3rd coach in 3 years?
