Start, Bench, Release

Postby [Q] on Thu May 17, 2018 7:56 am

Basketball version of Fuck, Marry Kill. Leave 3 players for the next person to choose from.

Example: Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish

Celtics, so I wish I could release all 3, but:
Start - Larry Bird - Easily the best player of the 3
Bench - Parish - decent role player, perfect for coming off the bench.
Release - McHale - probably who I dislike the most out of the three, and he's racist against Jeremy Lin

Who's next?
Start, Bench, Release: Hakeem, Ewing, David Robinson

Start: Hakeem Olajuwon - Who I believe is the best center in NBA History. Unstoppable on the block, teams had to double team him every game, and his defense was just unbelievable.

Bench: David Robinson - His first 7 seasons are some of the most dominant in NBA history. He moved up and down the floor like a guard.

Release: Patrick Ewing - While I believe he was tougher than David Robinson, I feel that he didn't have the same motor. I like Robinsons mobility more. However, all three are legends. David Robinson and Patrick Ewing are really tough to choose from.

Start: Tracy McGrady - couldn’t wait to leave Canada, left first before his cousin.

Bench: Vince Carter - hated and had enough of Canada at one point in his career, salute.

Cut: Grant Hill - no 3pt range, played for Duke. Fuck Duke.



Isiah Thomas, Russell Westbrook, Allen Iverson
HE'S USING HYPNOSIS!

Start: Allen Iverson, because of his heart and scoring punch.
Bench: Russell Westbrook, because while he is a great player, he seems obsessed with stats and can take his team out of the game with hero ball.
Relase: Isiah Thomas, because seriously, fuck Zeke.

Kareem Abdul -Jabbar, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain.

Starter: Wilt Chamberlain - the GOAT in literal sense. Jordan might be the poster boy everyone loves but let's face it. Wilt dominated his era like no one else. Too bad bball is a team sports.

Bench: Kareem Adbul-Jabbar: Better offense than Bill Russell. More complete basketball player than both Wilt and Cahmberlain.

Release to Andromeda: Bill Russell: Played with HOFs throughout his entire career. Teammates matter. Fuck the Celtics.


Next Up:
- Shawn Kemp (in prime)
- Ben Wallace (in prime)
- Chris Bosh (Heat's)

Start: Shawn Kemp, loved watching the Sonics and he was one of the first uber athletic 6'10" and above guys dunking on people, and pointing at them lol

Bench: Bosh, I dunno if you can say he's underrated but he was a solid main guy in Toronto before playing 3rd wheel in Miami.

Release: Ben Wallace, I always hated that stupid pistons team and Wallace was only any good on the defensive end. Also, he started the Malice in the Palace but didn't catch any blame for that.

Muggsy Bogues, Earl Boykins, Isaiah Thomas

(Completely agree with those picks for Kemp, Bosh, and Wallace.)

Start: Muggsy, because he could look after the ball, swiped it with ease, and was a solid playmaker who could score a little as well.

Bench: Thomas, because while he's the most accomplished, he's also the one that needs the ball the most, has shown a problematic attitude at times, and is more of a liability on defense.

Release: Earl, because while he was a good player and had a long and respectable career, I'd say he's the least of the three.

Dominique Wilkins, Vince Carter, Clyde Drexler.

Start: Clyde Drexler- The best two way player of the three, and NBA Champion (averaged over 20ppg in the 95 finals).

Bench: Dominique Wilkins - loved his motor, and I kind of consider him the Westbrook of his day because of it. Dude played hard every game.

Release: Vince Carter - sometimes it seemed that he just didn't want it. I don't think Wilkins was as talented as Carter, but he wanted it more.

Next up: Glen Rice, Kiki Vandeweghe, Jamal Mashburn

Start: Jamal Mashburn - Compared to LeBron James if he had no injuries. Also owns a huge restaurant franchise. Great businessman off the court, great player on the court.

Bench: Glen Rice - Insane shooter. '97 Rice would feast in today's basketball. But he was not better than Jamal Mashburn.

Release: Kiki Vandeweghe - Less athletic compared to Rice and Mashburn.

Next up:
the point guards of Kobe
Smush Parker, Chucky Atkins, Jordan Farmar

or
Javaris Crittenton, Fast Eddie Johnson, Keon Clark

Pick one

Start: Farmar- he was an actual decent point guard that played within the triangle

Bench- Smush- he wasn't as bad as Kobe makes him out to be but he wasn't great either.

Release- chucky Atkins - I don't remember him being great at anything other than hitting an occasional 3.

Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart

Start: Kyle Kuzma - He is gifted offensively, love his footwork and all around offensive game, and I like his length on defense.

Bench: Lonzo Ball - I like the way he can set the pace, the Lakers looked a lot sharper when he returned from injury. He's a poor mans Rondo at this point, which isn't a bad thing.

Release: Josh Hart - Love his hustle, I like his range. However, I think he is limited offensively and may have already hit his offensive ceiling (As far as repertoire). I like his defensive intensity though, and the way he just plays his role. It was tough between him and Lonzo.

Next up: Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan.

Oh, that's a tough one.

Start: Duncan, as he's the best power forward of all-time and a multi-time champion.

Bench: Garnett, because there were a couple of years there where it was debatable who was better, him or Duncan.

Release: Nowitzki, with a lot of regret because he's right up there, but that's the way the game must be played.

Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Dennis Rodman.

Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Dennis Rodman.


Funny, I had the complete opposite order.

Start: Charles Barkley - I consider him the best PF of all time. Defined the one man fastbreak, elite defender (especially with the 76ers), elite rebounder, elite offensive player.

Bench: Karl Malone - Seemed to get better every year, turned into a deadly mid range shooter. Both him and Barkley were great two way players.

Release: Dennis Rodman - legend, can make the difference between winning and losing, but he wasn't the all around players that Chuck and the Mailman were.

Next up: Jayson Tatum, Donovan Mitchell, Ben Simmons.

No love for Kuzma? Lol

Start: Simmons - this dude is so multi talented. Imagine if he had a jumper

Bench: Mitchell - Has been incredible all year long. Would be ROY if not for Simmons

Release: Tatum - He's pretty good but not as good as the others

CP3, Carmelo, DeAndre Jordan

Start: Chris Paul. Point God, actually the best PG in NBA. I expected him to decline in early 2010s as he was injured, instead he proved that he is in the conversation of greatest point guards.

Bench: DeAndre Jordan. Similar playing style with Clint Capela IMO. Great rebounder.

Release: Carmelo Anthony. Stole the years of Knicks, now hurting OKC. Also he doesn't like to be benched so I released him.

Next: Javaris Crittenton, Fast Eddie Johnson, Keon Clark

Skipping the traditional format for this one in favor of a different one.

Death Penalty: Fast Eddie Johnson - He raped an 8 year old girl

Life in prison - Javaris Crittenton - ended a person's life in an "accidental" shooting...

Probation - he's already been released, but I'd keep Keon Clark on probation for awhile for his DUI and weapons charges.

Next up: Gilbert Arenas, Stephon Marbury, Steve Francis
