Lets play a little game guys. Since the season has been over for a while now and we are all just waiting for the off season to start I decided that we should start a discussion on which superstar would you pick to start a Franchise.

 

Every 2 days I would post 2 match up for everyone to discuss so we can keep this thread organize and clean. It would be great if you guys could actually give an explanation why you feel player "x" is better than player "y" to keep things exciting.

 

If you guys have any match up suggestion just message me.

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Lets start off with:

 

Kyrie Irving

Irving and Curry are very similar. Both great shooters, Curry is better. Both have tight handles, among the best in the league, Irving better. Both terrible defenders. Both can score and distribute the ball effectively.

Give me Kyrie, he's more clutch and he's younger. I've seen Curty choke too many times this season. Irving is among the top 4th quarter players today.

Harden over Westbrook.

Harden is more team oriented, more efficient and he's less selfish. Westbrook is probably a better defender and 10x the athlete so it's a close call but I prefer Harden due to his offensive versatility and superior (yes) playmaking skills.

I would take Irving over Curry. I love players who can take it in and be dominant in the paint.

 

For me, Harden and Westbrook would be a toss up.

irving has been hurt like half his career...

curry holds the nba record for 3 pointers made in a season... irving is crazy good, but, I want to see him play 75+ games in a season first...

 

I take harden over westbrook...

westbrook isn't as effeicitent, and can totally shot his team out of games...

harden has taken over as the best player on a team, and learned how tough it is, he will get better in that role... with the disgrace wade has turned into, harden is the nbas 2nd best SG behind kobe, and because of kobes injury, harden is the best sg in the nba right now (paul George might have something to say about this though)
