Who Would You Rather (non-sexual version)?

Here's how the game works. You choose the player you would rather have on your fictional team and by what percent sure you are with that conviction.  So for example, if I ask Kobe Bryant or LeBron James, and let's say you're torn but ultimately choose LeBron, your percentage rating would be around 55%. On the other hand, if you feel that LeBron is better by a much larger margin, then you'd choose a percentage that's closer to 100% (like maybe 90%). Get it?

You take the player as he is now (age, health, skill level, etc...). Post your responses in the comments below. I'll post the overall results in my next blog. Try it, it'll be fun!

Zach Randolph-88%

Ben Gordon-76%

Greg Ogden-89% i will take a chance on him, he will help in particular on defense if he is on the team i have and nothing much other than that.with a year under his belt i think he will have a better year than last year.

2nd overall pick in next year's draft-100%

Paul Millsap-100%

Adam Morrison- (40%) off the bench player who will just take a few shots, i would rather have Shannon Brown but with Kobe Bryant , not expecting much of Morrison.

Carmelo Anthony-100%

Yi Jin Lian-(40% )he is inconsistent but coming of the bench, and just shoot from the outside and get a few rebounds that is enough than getting Yao Ming who is too injury prone, i will take a risk on him.

Am I assuming one season or rest of career? I went with the rest of career.

Are we counting contracts? I generally did not count contracts.


LeBron James 85% or Kobe Bryant

Jonny Flynn or Ricky Rubio 65%

Dwayne Wade 56% or Chris Paul

Kevin Love or Michael Beasley 60%

Derrick Rose 75% or Deron Williams

Hedo Turkoglu or Vince Carter 86%

Brandon Jennings or Jason Kidd 69%

James Harden 51% or Eric Gordon

Blake Griffin 94% or OJ Mayo

Amare Stoudamire 64% or Al Jefferson

Kevin Garnett or Paul Pierce 55%

Monta Ellis 77% or Stephen Curry

Tim Duncan 88% or Brook Lopez

Trevor Ariza or Ron Artest 77%

Allen Iverson or Zach Randolph 65% (gave me pause!)

Carlos Boozer or Ben Gordon 54%

Hasheem Thabeet or Greg Oden 88%

Rusell Westbrook or the 2nd overall pick in next year's draft 98%

Paul Millsap 99% or Tyler Hansbrough

Adam Morrison 58% or JJ Redick

Chancey Billups or Carmelo Anthony 98%

Chris Anderson or Anderson Varejao 99%

Yi Jianlin or Yao Ming 99%

Rodney Stuckey or Randy Foye 61%

Kevin Durant 99% or Chris Bosh


Some of these matter from a contract standpoint, and others by what players I already had. But some gooders in there.

*Note: Jefferson because we don't know if he'll be healthy, otherwise reversed

Who Would You Rather (non-sexual version)?

LeBron James 60% This is a close one but the non therapist factor plays into it.

50% Toss up. Flynn is here and balling. Rubio is not.

Dwayne Wade 75% Paul may be a better player, but Wade gets calls when player just look at him.

69% As long as no one calls him K-Love

85%

72%

78% Young balls over old balls

88%

OJ Mayo 90% Almost on name value alone

 60% A close one, but I seem to recall Jefferson lighting up the Suns (pun intended) the last few years.

 73% Pierce has more clutch. Sorry dedman, but you know it.

Stephen Curry 62% Ellis got injured riding a moped.

 88% Support humans.

 72% Ariza is overrated. A decent player on a very good team.

Allen Iverson 100% AI is thug as hell.

 86%

71% Oden is injury prone.

2nd overall pick in next year's draft 100% If the 2K basketball video games have taught me anything, it's that you can never have enough draft picks.

Paul Millsap 80%

100% Porn 'stache vs negative wingspan? Porn 'stache, case closed.

 65% A close one, but youth wins out.

Chris Anderson 60% Junkie vs Sideshow Bob...

 90% Yao.

55% Statistically very similar, but Stuckey averaged fewer minutes.

 90% I love me some Chris Bosh.
