    Default Who is your franchise player?

    This questions is sort of relevant to Matt's other thread of, would you build a team around a player, or build a team and than fit the player.

    My question is to you... What player would you start a franchise with and why?

    Reasons could be loyalty, finance, on-court, off-court, and etc.

    Please notice I went with this generation/decade of players and current ones

    went lebron. lebron is so far ahead of anybody it is ridiculous. lebron plays all around and is among the league leaders of most major stats categories. i don't think it is impossible to imagine that if he wanted to lead the league in assists he could, points, anything except maybe blocks and boards. can play well 1-4 on either side of the ball. just insanely gifted athlete and all he wants to do is win. a big douchebag off the court but simply awesome on it.

    Interesting, on the court he'll get you wins, but it will bring a lot of attention off the court, but this is all about results playing games.

    I went with Kevin Durant basically because he is my favourite player in the league right now. He is only 23 years old I believe, and the guy is probably the best scorer in the league. He's loyal, humble, team-first, and does not bring trouble along with him that's for sure. Only after 5 seasons, going into his 6th, he is going to be in consideration for the MVP award every year, will be an all-star starter for years to come, and is only getting better. The thing that separated for me between Durant, and James is the off-court attitude and mentalities. Humble, team-first, loyal, and is loved by the league all-around.
