Default Start a franchise: Duncan/Robinson or Lebron/KD?

You're building a team and you get the choice to draft either Tim Duncan and David Robinson, or Lebron James and Kevin Durant.

You can build however you want after that, but to start the franchise off you're given one of these duos via draft.

Keep in mind these guys are drafted the same year in this scenario..so down the road, prime Duncan would be playing with prime D-Rob, not a shell of D-Rob just a few years from retirement. And current MVP Durant would be playing with 2010 MVP Lebron.

In this scenario, you'd draft with 100% knowledge of who these players will become and how good they'll be. Assuming you know exactly who these players are on draft day, which duo would you choose to build around?

As good as LeBron and kd would be to watch the smart option would be Duncan and Robinson.
You wouldn't be able to buy a bucket in the paint against that duo.

LeBron and KD.

Perfect duo. LeBron would be passing to KD all day. LeBron is the perfect Robin to Durant's Batman.

They were dominant with an aging Drob and young Duncan (although he was still great). In their primes they're both MVP and DPOY caliber players, and would be an absolute terror on both ends.

Tough. It depends on who the main ballhandler is for Duncan and Robinson and who the big man is for KD and LBJ.

I'll say something like Robert Parish for KD and LBJ as the big man and a Tim Hardaway for Duncan and Robinson.

If we use those guys (or player at there level) I listed as the 3rd wheel I'll take the bigs, but if its just the top 2 guys and then borderline roleplayers and scubs filling the rest of the team I'll take LBJ and KD.

The big duo needs a good guard to bring it all together while the perimeter duo needs only a mediocre bigman to be complete.

In todays game with the plethora of good to great pgs Ill take the big duo.

Duncan and Robinson BOTH play on both ends of the floor. And from the inside out.

IMO that is more valuable than Durant and Lebron, of which only Lebron plays on both ends. And that duo would play from the outside in. I think you can build a more solid team if you are lucky enough to have a core of all-time greats that can anchor down the inside game first.

Robinson and Duncan and it's not even close. Look at what Sampson and Akeem did and Sampson is much much worse than Robinson.

Default Re: Start a franchise: Duncan/Robinson or Lebron/KD?

Defensively I agree it's not even close..

But we might be sleeping on the offensive potential of Lebron and Durant...the fit is nearly seamless. Lebron is at his best when in total control of the offense from playmaking to scoring, which works perfectly with KD being the best off-ball player in the game.

I honestly can't think of single duo in NBA history outside of 2001 Shaq and Kobe that would have that level of offensive firepower.
