^could be a case of teams trying to lock down wade and lebron in the final minutes leaving less pressure on bosh, just a thought, don't watch the heat much.

Plus one. Open jumpshots help a lot.

Who says they were all open shots anyway?

He already proved that he could get it done being the focal point of the defense anyway.

Lulz. I've always thought so... but there were those that said that Miami could get by just as well with Haslem starting.

Ok.

Honestly, you're kidding right??? How old are you? I ask because you do know most NBA players rent kids right? They are grown men who have eaten, slept, pissed shit and breathed basketball since they were children. How on EARTH do you think you have any concept of ho wmuch more about basketball these guys know than you. It's inbelievable that you actually even consider what you are saying.

After that, keep in mind, the question is not who do you start a franchise around, it's who do you build a team around. There is no timeline added. Basically they were asked a fanstasy question based upon who was in the league, and dont kid yourself, Nash is hardly a bad choice right now to make if you are piecing together a championship team.

It's important to use a bit of common sense here guys, really.

But this dude...lights out.....geez man, what are ya doing to me...you're killing me brother....

lol calm down guy, my 2 sentences made you write all that.

Obviously I assumed build around meant starting a franchise.I do not know more than the players never said I did, just don't believe this list at all, you can't tell me the players actually think eric gordon is that valuable. But look what SI did, got people talking didn't it? they put the obvious candidates on there than some wtf's in there to stir it up.

Again you're confused I never even mentioned nash lol.

I'm 19 and all I did was use common sense, cant believe everything you read/hear/see you know.Take your own advice it's helpful

By this logic we should remove GMs and let players run the operation. I guess we should've listed to VC more often then.
