C- Emeka Okafor
PF- KG
SF- Gerald Wallace
SG- Ben Gordon
PG- Brevin Knight

Brevin Knight is a top 5 in assists and steals. GW leads league in steals and is the most underrated player in the NBA, not to mention his entire stat sheet is filled. Ben Gordon, unbelievably clutch in the fourth, great three point shooter as well. Emeka is just a solid big man, who will be one of the best Defenders in the league for years to come. Everyone of these players is unselfish, Everyone of them except for Gordon is considered a top defender for their position. They are all young and would mimic a Detroit like Core to grow around, No one man has to ever bare the burden on his shoulders. This is my perfect team.
Okafor has been injured since college; he's out injured now for the rest of the season. What'd he play--maybe fifteen games for the Bobcats this year? He'll be injured forever and will never play a full season, and if Charlotte's bright they'll unload him to some team not smart enough to see beyond the potential and into the reality. I'd hate to see Minnesota get stuck with him.

Brevin Knight is possible, with Felton coming along so quickly. Only thing is, Felton's car accident earlier this season has left him with what might be permanent problems; that's why he didn't play last night. Not sure Charlotte's going to want to give Knight up if there's a chance Felton can't be relied upon longterm to step up. If Minnesota can get him, good, go for it.

Gerald Wallace: See Emeka Okafor above. Excellent player, heart of the Bobcats--but that ankle's kept him out on and off all season. When he can play, he rocks...but that hasn't been very often or for very long this year.

Ben Gordon's had some problems in Chicago this year. He's better off the bench than he was as a starter; he needs more time to learn before he's asked to carry this kind of load. In a couple years, maybe, but not now.

Using KG, one All-Star reserve/borderline All-Star and three other players.

I got mine

PG- Andre Miller
SG- Eddie Jones
SF- Paul Pierce
PF- Kevin Garnett
C- Eddy Curry

Pierce to take the scoring load, EJ hitting threes, Curry as the post presence on offense and Miller making plays.
That'd be a helluva team. Miller and Pierce are kind of doubling up the same style and job, but it'd work.

C- Mihm
PF - Kwame Brown
SF - KG
SG - Kobe
PG - Smush

:)
:laugh:

Why don't you just say it: You want KG to go play for the Lakers.

...and Kwame's recent success has been at center, not PF. He reeks as a four. So do you lose Mihm and put Kwame at the five, keeping Garnett at the three? Or do you move Garnett to PF and Kobe at SF--in which case, who's your shooting guard?

Oh--and also, Garnett's not known for being able to create his own shot very well, so he needs a point guard who can create for his teammates--a Nash or Stockton or Kidd type. That's not Smush; look at his assist numbers. He's a scorer more than an assists guy--exactly the wrong kind of one Garnett needs.

C: Marcus Camby / Darko Milicic
PF: Kevin Garnett / Boris Diaw
SF: Josh Howard / Bruce Bowen
SG: Jason Richardson / Mike Miller
PG: Kirk Hinrich / Speedy Claxton
I like this team. Nice set up. Only thing is, are you sure Darko's ready to start regularly? He'd have to, if he's backing up Camby; Camby's injured often as not, it seems.

Interesting and creative choice, Hinrich. I like it, but why'd you choose him?

Haha, when I first read your post I was thinking to myself "Learn to read, dimwit" -- but alas, it was I who made the mistake
No problem. We all make mistakes.

Here's my explanation

C: Defensive Presence
SF: Good perimeter defender
SG: Good scorer/3 point shooter
PG: 3 point shooter/decent playmaker

I chose Hinrich because he could get off easy 3 pointers when KG was in the paint, he could also help KG in the PG role...(I originally had Jameer Nelson, but changed it to Kirk).

The teams core is also reletavily young, staying in contention for a few years
Like I said, I like this team. They'd be tough as hell.

C. Chandler, Wilcox
PF. Garnett, r.evans
SF. Diaw, Hassel
SG. J.Rich, korver
PG. telfair, banks
That's a solid lineup. I really like Diaw and Korver and Telfair. (Not many people would even think of Sebastian Telfair!) Question, though: If you're going with Telfair as your starting one, why Banks as a backup? Talk about two entirely different styles. Would you consider Shaun Livingston to spell Telfair?

Not criticizing, just curious.

Ok heres my dreamt up championship team I built around KG, (all salaries aside)

PG- Jason Williams, Kevin Ollie
SG- Eddie Jones, Marquis Daniels
SF- Paul Pierce, Jim Jackson, Luke Walton
PF- Kevin Garnett, Al Harrington, Ronny Turiaf
C- Carlos Boozer, Eddie Griffin

...a great inside scorer in Carlos Boozer. And last but not least theres Luke Walton so you can hope his dad commentates for his games and says funny and idiotic stuff.
Nice team, but forget Boozer, please. Here in Utah, we've dealt with a season and a half of Boozer refusing to play, calling out sick when he isn't, and giving half effort most of the time. Lately he's been doing very well--because he wants a trade out of here so bad he can taste it. (Lucky for him, Coach Sloan hates his guts (as he despises anyone who doesn't go all-out), so he'll probably get his trade.)

As for Luke, he's good stuff. No, he's not the athlete his dad was in his day, but he's got Big Bill's basketball smarts....and Bill Walton's fun, BTW. He knows everything there ever was to know about the NBA. Sure, he gets a little out there sometimes, but he's funny and brilliant.
