i never said they wouldn't. All i'm saying and was saying is that Centers/PF as franchise players don't usually work. Dominant bigs make great secondary stars, but most contenders have the SG-SF spots as their main franchise player other than Dallas of course. Bosh should have never been our "franchise player", nor should Bargnani be our franchise player and i doubt Val will be that franchise player. IMO our franchise player when we hope to contend isn't here yet.
