Default Re: Who would you rather build your team around - Kareem, Bird, LeBron or MJ?

I'll take jordan. even though kareem might be better to build around since he would be the best big in the league by FAR, mj is still mj so not only do you get the GOAT you also get the most exciting player of all time

I would probably take MJ if the team is already good. Especially in his early stages of his career. But I would take Bird to make a team great.

because jordan provides quality skill rather quantity of skills. he provides elite scoring that no one in the league can same with magic with his elite passing. Whereas what lebron/bird provides can be provided by another player like their playmaking which can be provided by pippen. This is not a one-on-one league so I prefer players who specializes on something rather than an all around player master of none.
