Default What If You Were A Free Agent

lets pretend were all basketball players playing overseas. we're considered the best international player, young with enormous potential.

every team in the league offers you their full MLE for three years, nothing more, nothing less. with that, we're also guaranteed starters minutes and a satisfying number of touches a night.

what team would you sign with?

spurs for myself. winning culture, chance at a championship, play under pops, play with duncan..... i'd be an easy decision for me.

Raps was just for fun but if I really had to choose I would go to Portland. I like their team, its young and has a chance and has many years ahead of them to try and win a championship

I would go with Lakers, maybe San Antonio or Boston... it's all about winning.

Raps would be good choice if they were any good... unfortunately they are not.

I doubt LeBron is going to sign with the Knicks. Just sign with the Cavs instead

Spurs, Spurs, Spurs without hesitation.

Popovic

If Messina came next year I would choose the Raptors.

I want team ball.

Where would I play?

Top 3 (in no particular order)
New York -
LA Lakers
San Antonio

New York and Los Angeles because there's such an aura playing in those two cities - for the most part, it's always sold out, tons of celebs, it's the real stage of basketball - plus there's so much to do there outside of basketball.

San Antonio because shit, they always win, and there's no better feeling than winning.

I'd go into the situation that gave me the best chance to grow into at star. Not sure I'd accept a roleplayer assignment just because it was a winning team.

I actually worry a bit about these guys who aren't ambitious enough to want playing time over anything else.

I'd need a cold climate just because I like cold weather. Miami for me would be absolute hell.
