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 an 8 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.

I will be rolling with a conventional starting 5 with Pettit at the 4. We match up well with Mackís team. His best player is Tim Duncan, who Bill Walton can handle. Walton was one of the greatest defenders at center, and he can hold his own against an out of position Duncan. Mack canít guard both Julius Erving and MJ; his bench doesnít hold up to mine. I will be running up and down the floor and Mackís team canít keep up. Sidney Moncrief will force AI to miss, Yao will dominate off the bench, Chris Webber will outplay Griffin. We will definitely show and go under Mackís PnR heavy offence, Jerry West will be have to force up late clock jumpers. MJ can shut down George Gervin. If the game is close, Mack doesnít have anyone that can stop MJ in the clutch.
