Lets look at a West this time- and my time frame is 95/96 (when Van/Memphis came in) to last year.
Now please keep in mind that I used my biased opinion on who is a good player- The way I look at it, If he was traded to my Bobcats- I'd be happy. I might have missed a few boarderline all-stars but I doubt I missed too much, if so let me know.
Now Just to reiterate, these are players DRAFTED by the team, I know Kobe plays for the Lakers but he was DRAFTED by the Hornets. That is what matters.
Dallas - Josh Howard
GSW - Arenas ONLY and NO I am not counting Jason Richardson- I don;t want him for what we gave up for him.
Hou- Rudy, Rudy, Rudy, Yao, Richard Jefferson, A heathy Randy Livingston maybe.
LAC - Lamar Odem, McDyess, Tyson Chandler, Darius Miles
LAL - Not a single swingin player- I know Bynum and Walton have fans. But am I running out to get finals tickets for them? no.
Mem - Shane Battier, Steve Francis, Bibby, Abdur-Rahim
MIN - Roy, Ray Allen, KG
Cha/NO - Kobe, Baron, Paul
Phx- Deng, Amare, Marion, Finley, Nash, Steven Jackson
Por - Jermaine O Neal
SAC - Peja
San A - Tony Parker, Manu, Duncan,
SEA- Rashad Lewis,
UTH - Ostertag, Kirilenko
Now in my East Blog, I mentioned that there are 4 teams in the west that could WAX the east-
How about this team?
C - Yao, Amare
PF Duncan, McDyess Oneal
SF KG, Carmelo,
SG Kobe, Arenas, Ray Allen
PG Parker, Nash
-- I debated between Baron Davis, Marion, Chris Paul, Battier and Ray Allen for that final spot.
I think that takes the East of
C - Howard
PF - Bosh
SF - James
SG - Wade
PG - Hinrich
with Gordon, Okafor, Butler, Johnson (Dirk) on the Bench
I Think PHX takes this all Draft Team fairly easy so no TD on this one, but look at Strength of the Hornets and Memphis.
The 4 teams: Phx, San, NO, Min
That gives me Duncan,Amare,KG, Kobe, and Nash
My starters Take yours (TD if you want)
