Default Barbosa or Odom in 5 years???

Heres a question to settle something.... How many of you on here would rather have barbosa on your team in 5 years or would you take lamar odom in 5 years? Because I have a laker fan who either misunderstood me or is convinced that lamar odom will be better than barbosa.

Odom. He can play any position and he has a better all around game. Also a 6'10" player is more valuable than a 6'1" player.

I still take Odom because 33 isn't a bad age for a player.

depends what you need.

If I needed a scorer to help me break down other team's defenses give me barbosa, but If I need a third option scorer that does other things, give me Odom.

Odom is clearly the better option though.

Leandro Barbosa will be a better player than Odom in 5 yrs. no disrespect to Lamar who is the more complete player. If ever Odom was traded to another team i might even change my mind because Odom has all the tools to rejuvenate his NBA Career which means average more points and rebounds than Barbosa.

Leandro Barbosa is probably one of the best shooters in the NBA and one of the fastest man in the NBA today.

He might be selected in an NBA All Star game if he can evolve into a Combo Guard when Steve Nash finally hang his jersey and sneakers. He is quite putting a show by leading the Brazilian team in the FIBA Americas Tournament.

Uh, when Odom is 33? Barbosa.

That's not really a fair argument though.

You would obviously want the younger and less injury prone player. Odom might still have more talent than Barbosa then but he will be older and would be much less explosive and athletic. Right now though no question Odom.

It's more the Sun's system getting him open looks than anything. He shoots 43% from 3 but then again the Suns shoot 40% from 3 as a team!

Barbosa isn't 6'4" He's listed at 6'3". I just guessed 6'1". Considering Nash is actually 6'1" I doubt Barbosa is much taller.

Odom won't be a black hole PG when he's lying in his coffin.

Barbosa is overrated, IMO.

Really not a fair comparison, with their age difference. Of course most people would take Barbosa in five years just due to him being younger.

Gimme Lamar Odom now and for the next three years.
