You know what a franchise player is?

 

There are only 2 franchise players in the NBA today Lebron/Durant. Kobe/Duncan were franchise players but they are older now, so I want include them currently.

 

So you saying there will be 3-5 franchise players in that 1 draft? I give you Wiggins but the rest are not franchise players.

 

Franchise players currently.

1.Lebron

2.Durant

 

All Stars

1.Paul

2.Kobe

3.Rose(if healthy)

4.Parker

5.Dwight

6.Harden

7.Westbrook

8.Melo

9.Duncan

10.Love

 

Aside from Kobe and Duncan, you're pretty dumb if you dont think that CP3, Rose, Dwight, Harden, Parker, and Melo are franchise players.

 

I guess by that you also mean that only Brady and Manning are "franchise" qbs? Guys like Cam, Luck, Wilson, Ryan, Flacco, etc. are just "Pro Bowl" players right? You funny, but "YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE".

I have to say, I think Jabari Parker will be the best player in the draft by a fairly wide margin. Watching him play, it's almost like watching Carmelo Anthony play. He's just such a dominant SF. No, he isn't going to do all of the things LeBron can do, he's not a mix of all five positions like LeBron is, but he's a scorer from the SF position the likes of which has been seen in years.

 

However, I don't think Parker is going to have an incredible college season. He doesn't fit the system of Duke correctly. He's not going to have the ball in his hands a majority of the time. He's not going to get to go iso. He's not going to be able to take over the game from the wing, just because that isn't Duke's offense. It could drop him down just a few spots and put him in that 3-5 pick range.

 

Also, Julis Randle is a man. That dude is going to dominate college basketball in way that hasn't happened in years. We're talking Blake Griffin level of good.

No i'm watch you call a hardcore basketball fan.

 

You are dumb if you think CP3/Melo/GHarden/Rose are franchise players, I give you Dwight because he led a subpar team to the Finals. But those other guys haven't did anything to be considered franchise players.

 

CP3/Melo has yet to lead their team past the 2nd round and you call them a franchise player LMAO!

 

You gotta win a championship as the main guy before I call you a franchise player or you have to be an amazing talent like Durant. So yeah I guess we just disagree on what a franchise player is.

 

 

You saying all those guys are franchise players, you are basically putting them in the same category as Lebron. I'm sorry but Lebron/Durant are just on another level than those other players.

A franchise player is one who can go out and win you games, take over games, when he's not playing chances are you're going to lose, and you build your whole team around him. Thats exactly what those guys I mentioned earlier are. New Orleans crumbled with the departure of CP3 and Chicago could've easily won two Championships if Rose didnt tear his ACL last year and is a pussy to come back this season. Now, you are dumb if you think CP3/Melo/Harden/Rose aren't franchise players.

 

Skill wise, I'm not going to put those guys along with LBJ or Durant. But, LBJ couldn't win a ring in Cleveland and even loss in his first Finals vs. the Mavs with Wade and Bosh playing by his side. Durant couldn't carry his team pass Memphis with the departure of Harden and injury to Westbrook. Now, you tell me why they're considered "franchise players" compared to the others.

I can't understand why there are some people wanting us to try for mediocre. Sign some mid level free agents and hope we get to the 8th seed in the playoffs??? All the while winning enough to stay at the back of the lottery. Now I  don't care for losing but that's the formula in the NBA. Big time FA won't sign here or any other small market. Only chance is to luck out in the draft for a star and build around them. Then you have to hope that player will resign and not bolt.
