The legacy league was created to pit teams drafted by fellow RR members against each other and allow the general RR populous to vote on who would win this winner take all, single elimination game if all players were at their peak performance.
Each team drafted a 10 man roster. Each team provided a gameplan justification as to why they believe they should get your vote. Each team is allowed 1 post for "in game adjustments." The role of RR community is simple, vote for who you believe should win. Post justification if you want (encouraged) and weigh the pros and cons for all to see, but ultimately, your vote decides who will win this tournament of legends.

Moses isn't a threat with Bargnani-esque FG% and APG. Howard/Sabonis have size and athleticism to beat on boards.
Havlicek is undersized on wing, giving 7" to Clyde/Butler, 9" to Bird, 60lbs to Artest. Sheed at PF forces Cowens to defend perimeter leaving Moses (1.3 BPG) as lone rim defender. I have too many perimeter shooters for Cody to hide any weak defenders or play zone. Cody lacks outside shooters, allowing defence to pack paint and cut off lanes for Magic. I have no weak links defensively for him to attack.
Cody has no defender to stop Bird, use lots of high post elbow action and offball screens. Allow Bird to run the offence through his mismatch. Bird would score, pass and talk trash all game long.
If Bird does that against DPOY like Rodman, he'll have a field day against Cody's team.
Ax wants to attack me with size. So instead of fighting fire with fire, I am going with a small ball lineup. Once again, I'll be using the nickel defense.
As for my bench, I plan to attack him in the post outright. Moses is my 6th man for that reason.... along with him being a great rebounder.
Axel's In-Game adjustment
Cody's starters - including Magic's MVP season and Johnsons best allstar season - check those 3P%.
His best two playmakers can't shoot, making defence easy for my caliber of guys.
I will dominate boards and can bring variety of guys off bench to disrupt Magic. Sabonis owns tiny Moses. Cody lacks playmakers.
So RR faithful, who wins this game?
