Re: Which NBA player could.......
I'm going to say it's between Tayshaun Prince, Josh Howard and Shawn Marion. All three guys can play lock down defense, all can shoot from anywhere on the floor and all three are very athletic. I'm doing this in terms of comparing to Scottie Pippen not in terms of creating an unbeatable model.
I think if you were to put Kobe and LeBron on the same team then they wouldn't get along and would want to be split up. Same can be said about Carmelo Anthony, Paul Pierce, Ron Artest and Tracy McGrady.
I haven't seen enough of Danny Granger and Gerald Wallace to make a good comment on what he would do with LeBron so I'll leave that alone.
Josh Smith, Iggy, and Kirilenko aren't great scorers. Iggy gets his points but he can't score from everywhere. Smith needs to work on his jump shooting and AK-47 is inconsistant although Kirilenko and Smith have outstanding defense.
Edit: I know LeBron and Carmelo are good friends but that doesn't mean that they would get along on the basketball court.
