Default Re: Would you rather have Chris Paul or Dwight Howard?

Compared to Chris Paul, having Howard on your team makes you much, much better than without. The players I listed are those who have played on our team before. Take any of them and put Howard at center, you have a great team, one comparable to the one he has in Orlando. KEEP IN MIND THIS IS AT ANY POINT SINCE HE WAS DRAFTED.

Any random order:

PG: Felton
SG: Richardson (who coincidentally is with Howard in Orlando right now)
SF: Wallace
PF: Vladimir Radmanovic
C: Dwight Howard

How about another example?

PG: DJ Augustin
SG: Stephen Jackson
SF: Gerald Wallace
PF: Tyrus Thomas
C: Dwight Howard

Need another?

PG: Eddie House
SG: Shannon Brown
SF: Gerald Wallace
PF: Boris Diaw
C: Dwight Howard

Ok, that team is as athletic as hell, so maybe it struggles with offense, but see my point? Put Howard with any random order of players we've ever had and you can't tell me you'd rather not have that team over what we've got now.

The first two teams you listed have a top two player from our team at every position except for Radmanovic. Yes, those were the good players, I was more talking about the other players on those lists. The second one is more like it; Shannon Brown and Eddie House were both huge scrubs when they played for Charlotte.

Are you telling me

Keith Bogans (10ppg 38%, 3 apg)
Larry Hughes (8ppg 32%)
Jared Dudley (6ppg, 4rpg)
Vladimir Radmanovic (8ppg 40%, 3pg)
Dwight Howard

Is a 44 win ball team? And I'm the one who is out of my mind huh?
