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









Most people have MJ as the GOAT with Kareem and Larry coming close..LeBron proving hes a potential top 5 or higher every passing day....But, who would you rather build your team around? For me, it would have to be Kareem because of the center postion having an all around larger impact on the game.

Would love to hear reasons why some of you would possibly even select Bird Over MJ, which I don't think would be the wrong decision. Can't go wrong with any top 10 player.

Assuming I don't know how their careers are going to pan out, Kareem

And if you do?

Technically you wouldn't since you would be drafting them and making a team, thus any accomplishment they did make doesn't mean anything other than individual

Bird or Kareem.

Both completely change the franchise that they were in their rookie year. Kareem took a 27 win team to a 56 win team. Bird took a 29 win team to a 61 win team. Bird had more success in a short time frame, but Kareem had more longevity.

You won't go wrong with either of those players, but it depends on the teammates surrounding them. I just think Bird and Kareem would offer the most success in their rookie year and continuing to do so through out their careers.

If I don't know how they will pan out:

1. Kareem
2. LeBron
3. Bird
4. MJ


If I do:
EDIT: longevity taken into account.

1.a Kareem
1.b Bird
3. MJ
4. LeBron

That's my final answer.
