Legacy Draft 1 player. 

Post#1 » by Picasso » Sun Oct 4, 2020 7:17 am

Ok. Completely random but i think it would be a fun question, pretty much for every team. Juat chose to start with the Lakers as I thought this along with Celtics and Sixers would probably be very tough to answer.

The NBA somehow is able to do a all time draft. Every player is available. However each team gets to select its 1 franchise player star. This would be a player who was on the team for a minimum of 4 seasons. So for the Lakers current stars Lebron and AD etc... are not available. With the 1 franchise pick, who would you select? The rest of the players would be eligible for the draft. Lakers are lucky enough with so many great players they would probably end up with 2 of their players anyway. Haha. Bit Who is the player you would select and protect from the draft. This may not be just who's the best or favorite player, but the one franchise player you would build the entire franchise and draft and build around them with a talent pool from all time players.

Interested in seeing what the responses would be in this topic. Have fun and go.

Hard to choose between Kareem and Magic but I choose Magic. Magic's charisma is as important as his skill level in this market.

Mark Madsen! (seriously though, probably Kobe.)

Return to Los Angeles Lakers
