matchups.. = VERSUS..
not in order...
Lebron vs Carmelo.. Both drafted the same year, they both topped off, one of the best drafts in nba history. Carmelo is a pure scorer, and Lebron, well, we all know he's got all around game . This is a very athletic matchup, and very, very competitive, even Melo doesn't have that great uh 'D.
Dwayne Wade vs Kobe..
This is a special matchup. Dwane Wade is a Finals MVP, one of the best players in the game, versus arguably the best shooting guard in the game, mr. mamba..
going old school.. Kevin Garnett vs Tim Duncan..
Two of the best powerforwards ever, mr. calm cool n collected vs the Big Ticket, a.k.a fiesty mcghee.. This matchup he's been played out, but it's still damn entertaining. KG doesn't back down from anyone, Tim Duncan, he's smooth an finesse like Montana.

To make it fair, I'll throw all 5 of mine out there.
KG vs Duncan.
These two first ballot HOFers can't play enough in my mind.
Westbrook vs Derrick Rose
CP3 is the king of pure points, but the protest MVP vs a guy you can't miss.
Love vs Blake Griffith
Could this be KG/Duncan in a decade? No, but they can be very close.
Nash vs Kidd
Two old farts who know it all, and still win.
Chris Paul vs Tony Parker
CP3 is the master as a pure point, but Parker just wins, and gets everyone going.

you like my throwback pick, eh? haha
Yeah,, no kobe?
that's super lame.. Just the closest thing we've seen to MJ, since MJ.
Nash vs Kidd is a good one. Legends! I like that one, but i will not copy it...
Derrick Rose vs Cp3 ...
Two of the best in the game.. Different style point guards, but both sooo effective. Poor Cp3 gets to the playoffs, but can't get the sh8t to click.
and for my final pick..
I have Dwight Howard vs Nene..
I'd say Nene is a little tougher than Bynum, maybe not, but i do know Bynum pouts a lot! hahah Dwight is a freak, and his game is strong inside. Nene's the best body to take on "superman"
I know, the center position is horrid.. Gotta give some props somewhere.. lol
So my final lineup..
Dwayne Wade vs Kobe Bryant
Lebron James vs Carmelo Anthony
COPIed bY NC.. KG vs Big Fundamental
Derrick Rose vs Cp3, fast n furious
NENE vs Dwight howard

Nope, no Kobe.
Kobe is like Duncan, he's playing against history.
Unlike Duncan, there's nobody in the NBA who can matchup with him.
Wade has the Ring, the Finals MVP, but let's face it. Unlike KG/Duncan, we are not going to get 30mins of Wade vs Kobe. Wade can't handle Kobe if his shot is falling, and LBJ is going to take him on occasion anyway.
You think KG is going to tap PP to ride Duncan for a few minutes?
To put it in simple terms- its not a cage match, its a survivor series
The MegaPowers (LBJ/Wade) vs the Dungeon of Doom (Kobe as the Giant, Metta as Shark, pau as the Yeti, Bynum as lex Luger)
Melo is a great OFFENSIVE player, but he'w closer to Dominique wilkins than Gerald Wilkins on defense. He dosnt make Bron work on the defensive end, true not many players do, but Melo, like 'Nique would be a better matchup playing 21 with Lebron than matchups.

Lebron and Carmelo are two top scorers in the game.
Carmelo can shoot eyes out at will.
Lebron, he can drive to the bucket, any time he wants to. (minus last year's finals)
What you got on my Nene vs Big Dwight matchup?
Pretty nasty huh.. kinda like Dusty Rhodes vs One Man Gang?
Yeah, Nene, believe it or not, is arguably the 2nd best center in the game. "ARGUABLY".. key word..
Bynum has a lotta followers.. i'm not getting in that debate. But Nene, he phsically matchup with Dwight, who's a super freak, and we aint talking abou the sheets.
Dwade can play pretty dirty on defense, he's fast, he's arguably the 2nd best shooting guard in the game. Kobe, he's a living legend of course, but these two, there competitiveness, un-real!
and in a weird way, both have minor similarities of the GREAT MJ.. no joke..
WEll, my 3 minutes is up, good night, mate

You honestly, when was the last time you were flipping channels and saw NENE and told the wife (or whatever) hang on babe, we're gonna be late to Logans (or Wendy's) NENE is playing tonight.
I'm more enthused to see Ty Lawson or even Danillo overe Nene.
And Dwight don't Care. He's past the point where he's exciting to watch. He hasn't improved in 3 years- I've seen a guy act like this for 15 years in the NbA, he Also wore a Magic uniform.
