    Poll to the help settle a bet thread

    If you had to start a NBA team, with knowing what you know now (just kidding!), based off of their careers who would you pick?

    I was the other part of this bet, and need #'s on it to settle it.

    Really depends on wh0 the other players on the team would be.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Nope thats the whole part of the question, you don't know who will be on the team along side of them. Simply put who would you rather pick not knowing who else you are going to get.

    Re: Poll to the help settle a bet thread

    Did you bet which player would be chosen by the most CF posters?


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I was gonna say Bill Russell until I saw the choices.

    How many titles does AI have? The answer is Chauncey.

    We didnt really specify. Just needed to get some numbers to put to the arguement. I think too many look at strictly stats and make a judgement. Obviously Im for CB

    Then this is easy. AI carried a franchise. Billups was a piece to a puzzle.

    Gotta take the franchise player.

    I feel like I have to go with The Answer. Unfortunately, I also feel like I have to go take a shower.

    Re: Poll to the help settle a bet thread

    I'm surprised more people are picking AI. Guy was about as selfish of a player as there was in the NBA while Billups has a championship ring and usually was associated with teams that won because of his PG play. Iverson may have racked up better individual career stats but Billups has a lot more team accomplishments to show which if I'm running a team I want guys that play together well and win not a superstar who can't play team ball.

    By that logic you'd also take Will Perdue over AI.

    Not really. Look a little deeper. AI was selfish and a locker room cancer. Chauncey seemed to be more of a leader and team player.

    Then the number of titles argument you used before is bogus.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers
