Kidd/Ewing. No doubt.

Kidd is criminally underrated. Prime Kidd was better than Iverson ever was.

I disagree strongly. If we are comparing the careers of the two I would agree, but primes and peaks? It is Iverson all the way.

Kidd and Ewing by far. Kidd's defense wins out for me.

I disagree. Peak Iverson(2001) and peak Kidd(2003) were roughly on the same level, imo and prime Kidd('99-'04) and prime Iverson('01-'06) were also on the same level.

Very different players though, so it's tough to compare.

iverson/garnett. way too much talent to pass up

i'd take kg over ewing any day of the week. kidd and iverson are such different players, but probably equally as valuable...it's a coin flip between them

With poor teammates, i'll go with AI/KG.
With better teammates, i'll go with Ewing/Kidd.

Prime AI was very consistent scorer.He was dominant scorer in prime.He had unguardable years.He won most scoring titles when there were prime Shaq,Kobe,T-Mac.He is the guy you can depend on if our team's offense having troubles.Just give him the ball.

One of the most underrated aspect of Iverson's game he was excellent at ball pressure and reading lines,stealing.Prime Iverson was pretty good at defensive contribution even though his size.

Prime Garnett was probably one of the best all around player.He was also very versatile on both offense & defense.Someone who can player many positions at good to great level.That's a joker card.

Ewing was much better defender at painted area and more dominant scorer than Garnett.He has been a versatile scorer for Center position as well.

Kidd was much better play maker, better one on one defensive player.He is much more versatile and greater rebounder than Iverson.

To me, Ewing/Kidd is safer choice to create a dynasty with balanced team. AI/Garnett is great choice to have more exciting,high tempo,hustling team.

Both Iverson and KG had absolutely horrid teammate in their primes. If they had each other, they would have been completely dominant.

Both Iverson and KG individually actually did pretty decently against Shaq's Lakers at one time. Together, they win multiple championships.

Default Re: To start a franchise with: Iverson/KG vs. Kidd/Ewing

i'd take kidd/ewing simply for the fact that ewing was a better player than kg.

as for those saying kidd>iverson, are you serious?
scoring has become criminally underrated around here. iverson was a 30+ppg scorer in his prime... kidds impact did not come close to iverson. iverson was the center of attention when it cames to the other teams defense, and he was still dropping ridiculous amount of points.

to say that kidd>iverson, you're pretty much saying kidd was on the same level as mcgrady, wade, bryant at his peak.

Peak Ewing( in '90 when he had 28, 11, and 4 blocks per game) was just as good as the best version of Garnett.

Surround Kidd/Ewing with some good shooters and you have a dynasty.

Iverson and Garnett had awful teammates all their careers until KG went to Boston.

AI and KG in the east would of went to the finals every year from 1999-2004
