Default Amare AND Melo vs. Dwight Howard

Given a circumstance where we don't know what the rest of the team looks like, who do you take?

Howard

or

Amare AND Melo?




Filling two positions with All-Star caliber players would be a solid foundation... but I can't help but think that having Howard alone brings you closer to the ultimate goal, regardless of who you put around him.

Isn't the rule now that you need multiple stars to win? I mean if Lebron couldn't win by himself, how could Dwight Howard do it?

2 is better than 1

what if Dwight goes down or gets another suspention?

i guess getting Lebron is better than having Pierce, Allen, and KG.

I'm a big fan of both Amar'e and Melo and I'm extremely happy they're Knicks.

But I'd have to chose Dwight Howard. He's just too dominant with the lack of bigs these days, and he's young.

Let's say we didn't sign Amar'e this past offseason and we traded the package we traded to Denver for Dwight (it's a scenario, I know the Magic wouldn't accept it you fcks). Oh, and fck you we would've kept Anthony Randolph since he would've gotten PT and Eddy Curry would've been kept since there wouldn't be a salary problem.

Toney Douglas / Roger Mason Jr
Landry Fields / Bill Walker / Andy Rautins
Shawne Williams / Derrick Brown
Anthony Randolph / Shawne Williams
Dwight Howard / Ronny Turiaf / Eddy Curry

Now that team would really suck. But we'd have a massive amount of cap space in the summer of 2011.

Well, at least all three have major impacts on the defensive end of the floor.




Unfortunately 2 of 'em don't do it in a positive way.

dont confuse Dwight with Kareem.

I said they'd really suck. But looking at the cap space, you could build a great team around that.

No biggie.

But looking at what players will be available this/next summer I think going with that roster would be the best move. I went all non-homer on this one.

I don't think Melo and Amare compliment each other well. With those 2 on board you are financially strapped as well to improve your team. I don't know if I can see them leading to a team to the Finals unless Melo alters his game some and decides to actually try on defense. If he does, than maybe.

Any competent management (Otis Smith, I hate you) should be able to pair up Dwight with another promising player that compliments Dwight better than Amare/Melo do. I also think Dwight is easier to build around than Melo/Amare. You'll have more money to work with and the better player.

So with that said, I choose Dwight (shocker I know lol).
