Superfans: Knicks vs. Knicks 

Post#1 » by Capn'O » Fri Dec 14, 2012 5:37 am

Ok, ok. It's obvious. Nobody can beat the superteam. They are impenetrable and indestructible force of extreme awesome. So we have to get creative here. Who would win in a game of Knicks... against the Knicks?!

The FIVE rules to this poll are as follows:

1. Five five minute quarters. 25 minutes. That's right. I said five quarters.
2. All players are in their prime.
3. Five on five game. No bench. No substitutions.
4. No coach. Pickup game.
EDIT RULE FIVE: Self called games. No refs. Ball don't lie.

Now, keep in mind, this is a game of fives. This is important... somehow.

Who wins? The heady, spread the floor, passers or the explosive, athletic, offensive onslaught with Tyson manning the post?

Discuss!
For us, it's easy. We're looking for character, but what the hell does that mean? We're looking for people, and I've said it many times, who have gotten over themselves, and you can tell that pretty quickly.

Basically this means you can play physical. Kidd gets to foul people as much as he wants. Basically "street ball" games go to the bigs with the best post game and guards with the most ability. Mello would be guarded by Rasheed (in his prime) with Camby on Stat and Vak on Chandler. Yeah team 2 and it's not that close

He could be. But he had a pretty distinctive style. Was he waived at one point?

What is the point of the 5 five minute quarters other than being different for the sake of being different?

Isn't it, though? As impressive as our first unit is, that second unit for limited spurts could still give it a run for its money. I almost asked now rather than prime (hence the shorter time span). It's an impressive group with a TON of savvy.

JR doesn't really fit with what I was going for with the second team though. Maybe I put Shump with the old timers (on account of his flattop) and run JR with the athletic nuts. That's just a beastly team. Prime Kidd, Shump, Vak, Sheed, Camby. That's just dirty.
