A Quick Ten: Top 10 NBA Players To Start A Franchise With

Here is my list of the 10 players that I would want to start an NBA franchise with.  This is not a list of the best players in the NBA so you will not see Kobe Bryant or Dwayne Wade on this list.  Here we go.

10.  Rajon Rondo (26)  A strong playoff run from Rondo puts him in the NBA elite and makes him the leader of the Celtics.

9.  Russell Westbrook (23)

8.  John Wall (21)  His game will take a big step this year with Beal and we will get to see how he leads an improving young team.

7.  Kyrie Irving (20)

6.  Deron Williams (28)

5.  Dwight Howard (26)  Has shown already he can carry a team deep in the playoffs and is a rare dominate big man in the league.

4.  Chris Paul (27)

3.  Kevin Love (23)  He scores, he rebounds and he defends.  Well Meat Loaf said it best, “Two out of three aint bad”.  He is already an MVP type player and if he improves his D, he will be one of the best.

2.  Kevin Durant (23)

1.  Lebron James (27)  3 MVPs, 8 All Stars, Great Defender and NBA Champion.  There is no question that Lebron is my first choice to build a franchise around.

  1. How is Derrick Rose not on this list? I’d take him over Wall or Rondo any day.

  2. Derrick Rose’s style of play (slash, cut, stop, jump) doesn’t fit well with a rebuilt knee. He is downgraded in my eyes until he shows he can hold up at that level.
