Well... I am a huge Toronto Raptors fan. If I could trade Alvin Williams straight up for one of them, it'd be Francis. We need scoring desperately. The Franchise provides scoring along with creativity in the open floor and the ablility to get his own shot on anyone in the clutch.Originally posted by <b>LionsFan01</b>!
Both are young and very talented but who would u take to be your starting PG?
I would think your vote counted! LOL! Wait a minute - do we actually get to vote on these comparisons?Originally posted by <b>mduke</b>!
Different types of players....I admit, Dre is a better pure PG, but Francis can score and rebound better.....I'm a little biased on this, so I dont know if my vote counts or not
I think that's an insightful way of viewing the PG position. With me, the question implicitly lends itself to being 'which PG would you build a team around' and I gotta go Franchise.If I'm starting a team, I wait until I've got my other 4 starters before I pick my pointguard. I think a pointguard should compliment the rest of the team, not the other way around. Because of how I'd try to build my team, Miller would be a better fit for me, but that's only if I had my first choice of who else I had.
I agree-so I would choose Dre.Originally posted by <b><<<D>>></b>!
Francis is good, but I would'nt consider him as a true floor leader or even a PG (he's a 2 isn't he??). He's a consistant scorer and has a lot of flash, but with choosing Dre, he gets everyone involved and opens things up for the players.
My point is that I wouldn't even try to build a team around a pointguard, I'd find a pointguard who fit my team. But if I for some reason HAD to, then I would have to go with Dre, because he'd be much easier to build around IMO.I think that's an insightful way of viewing the PG position.
