Curious, where would your rate Bledsoe in terms of PG's? Top five? Top Ten? Middle of the pack...

I'd also put Lowry and Dragic ahead of him. I put in with Hill, Holiday and Teague. He's in that 12-16 range pending on what your looking for in your PG. He's a good player no doubt, just in this day and age he's in the average to slightly above average class for me. That's always been my problem when people say they have an elite PG, the league is littered with talented PG's despite the Knicks inability to ever land one.

I definitely wouldn't put Dragic ahead of him (defense). And Lowry... na, I grew up watching 90's Knicks basketball... that tubby fuq is a mental midget... I don't respect that. I'd take Bledsoe over him in the playoffs. Dude is a bull.

Also, look at Kyrie before and after Lebron came in... his game elevated and they won a title. I think in a similar situation with Kawhi, Bledsoe would have that same opportunity as the scoring guard he is. Teague and Jrue are not as good and are not real #2 options... they played with PG & AD and didn't really do squat.

Besides kwahi no one on that team is making an OPEN shot. That's why they were eliminated.

Lebrons second best player was joe ingles and Avery Bradley... WCS is manning what successful NBA front court? Yeah that's why he was eliminated.

So yeah, that way.

By far the Lakers are more complete and better constructed especially defensively than any team he's faced.

The best team I faced defensively was spree's 6ers.

Lakers have 5 guys in their starting lineup, and 2 guys off their bench, who are at their best with the ball in their hands, or require it to maximize their skillset.

Aside from a small sample size of Juancho, their entire frontcourt has no consistent floor spacer to open up the paint for CP3 to attack or for Howard to operate.

I will be involved in EVERY game, regardless of how good they think their defense is...my offense is the most efficient in the game, with some of the best 3pt shooters in the league. What's going to happen when we slow down pace and go "Hack-a-Howard"? There are going to be so many times when you're forced to sit him and Favors/Whiteside/Gasol are just going to eat on that weakass front court.

We'll see though...

I won't take anything away from you as a GM you've made good-great teams consistently. But for a chip this BAT, McConnell Peterson and sefalosha can't fill big enough roles. They can't make shots consistently.

When was the last time a team with 0 NBA all-stars in the last 4 years won an NBA Finals? The answer is 0.

Iguodala is proven in the NBA Finals. His ability to close out games defensively is a key factor.

And your backup POWER FORWARD is Joe Johnson. How are you gonna go at my backup PF? Lmfao

Iguodala puts clamps on CJ.

You have a pair of traditional Centers which Dwight covers.

Imagine putting the ball into James Johnson's hands on the perimeter or on the break and asking either Favors or Whiteside to guard him? :lol:
