Default Who would you draft over Shaq?

Is there anybody you would take over him to start a team? Kareem or Jordan maybe.

Arguably Russell and/or Wilt, too.

Depends on what kind of team I want to build. One's vision for a team (as well as philosophy) will determine what personnel to get in order to achieve that vision.

Default Re: Who would you draft over Shaq?

With or without knowledge of their NBA careers? Because if you always know what the outcome is then you'll just pick the usually names (Jordan, Magic, Kareem, Russell). Then the maybe, Chamberlain, Bird, Duncan, LeBron.

Based on their college or high school prospective potential, I can only think of Chamberlain, Russell, Kareem, Magic and LeBron(because he was super hyped out of HS). But all of those guys are "maybe's."

I think only Kareem have a good chase to be picked over Shaq if we're going solely by their college/HS hype.

Maybe somebody with real good knowledge of draft scouting/reports can chime.

You can add Magic & Larry to that list too.

You draft players of potential.
MJ is only 6' 6".
Kareem lacks brute strength of Shaq & need Magic, Bird like floor leader.
Hakeem too.

Shaq was beast of nature. Blessed with Huge massive hands & strongest player to ever play in NBA. Even a lazy, bum Shaq will deliver atleast 3 NBA titles because 5 feet inside the paint. Shaq is absolutely UNSTOPPABLE.

Shaq can easily dominate because of his strength, brute force & huge hand size that controls the ball easily.

I see Shaq in the Draft. I'll pick him blindly over Top 5 GOATs.


Why?

Shaq "GUARANTEED" multiple titles. Others, I'm not too sure about.

Partially agree with you but I think Kareem's legendary success at UCLA would get him some votes over Shaq on draft night.
