    At their current age or when they were rookies?

    What did you bet? That people on cf would say one name or another? If not how the hell does this thread settle a bet?

    As rookies? Iverson and it's not even close.

    Today? Billups and it's not even close.

    If it's when they were in their prime, AI, and Chauncy wouldn't even be on the team. I don't think one person in the world would pick CB.

    If it is about peak value, it is AI hands down.

    Re: NBA question to settle a bet

    Interesting question IMO

    Billups would be the safer choice and will make everyone around him better. Plus he's an unbelievable guy in the locker room. Only problem with going this route is you need a great supporting cast or else you'll never win big. Iverson had the superstar ability to carry the Sixers when they were down. Like when he took them to the Finals in the early 2000s. Too bad he never had sustained talent around him. I remember when they brought in Chris Webber in the twilight of his career as if that was some great move.

    I'd take Iverson simply because of his great talent but I love Billups. I don't think it's an accident that the Clippers have fallen on hard times since he got hurt this year.

    Doesn't change the question any. Are we going when they were rookies? Are we going when they were in their prime? Are we going with as they are right now? All things we "know now".

    Well I def disagree but thats alright. You do realize CB lead the Pistons to 2 NBA titles and was MVP on one of them.
