I'm bored and you're easily distracted, so we're going to play a game. "Trade, Max, Amnesty."
It's basically NBA "Fuck, Marry, Kill", but requires more logic and less bodily fluids. While there are no wrong answers, responses will give an insight into what you value in a basketball player and why. That's always more interesting than just arguing over who's better.
RULES: 1. Trade one player. (Assume the standard 40-60 cents on the dollar superstar deal.)
? ? ? ? ? ? ? 2. Max one player. (Assume this guy will eat up 30-35% of whatever the salary cap is.)
? ? ? ? ? ? ? 3. Amnesty one player. (Assume they won't go home, but have to get the fuck outta here.)
? ? ? ? ? ? ? 4. Participants would play under today's rules. (No hand checking, Michael.)
? ? ? ? ? ? ? 5. Age doesn't matter. (Assume a decade of production from that starting point.)
? ? ? ? ? ? ? 6. Neither do injuries. (Penny 4 Prez?)
? ? ? ? ? ? ? 7. Got it? Good. Cause it's your turn.
