2.) Superstar (HOF?)
3.) Some throw in
4.) Some throw in (Madsen)
or maybe the rockets
4.) Superstar/HOF (was drexler SF or PF? or was he SG?)
Point is, there hasn't been a team yet who won the championship with a me first point guard. As far as im concerned right now, I don't care as long as we get into the playoffs. Then we can start worrying about the petty stuff. As long as the PG plays within the flow of the offense and can lead the team, we can have JRich develop into a monster or have JRich and Biedrins develop into monsters and have them carry the team. Thats why I want monta to develop into a Kidd type or Nash type.
You still will not acknowledge the Detroit Pistons. Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars were the stara od the team, with Thomas being a "me first" point guard. Could you please acknowlege that?
PS: I concsider Thomas a superstar and Dumars a little bit more than just solid.
I was considering the 90s and don't think the pistons won any championships in the 90s. If you talk about 80s then ya. But you had Rodman, Laimbeer, and Dumars which were players that could help out Thomas. If Thomas missed, Rodman would snatch up the board. The bulls beat them with Jordan and Pippen and some good players. Rodman wasn't quite a star (or quite into dresses) at the time and Laimbeer as well. That pistons team was a bruising, punishing team in which by todays standards would either get T'ed up hell or have half the starting lineup ejected before the 1 half was done.
