Would You Rather: Questions 121-130


This edition of "Would You Rather" is credited to the NBA Would You Rather NBA Account on Instagram (See Here). Adding to the fun, this edition (and possibly future ones) are all NBA basketball questions. 

121. Who would you rather have on your favorite NBA team - Giannis Antetokounpo or James Harden? 

Seeing how I'm a lifelong suffering Knicks fan, the thought of any of these guys in blue and orange is hard to believe. With that said, I'm taking the Greek Freak for this reason - I enjoy watching him play a bit more. Nothing against Harden who is amazing as well, but at times, the ball sticks and that isn't always fun.

Plus, I feel like we haven't yet seen a finished Giannis.

122. Would you rather have Giannis Antetokounpo with no driving ability or James Harden with no Three-Point shooting ability? 

This is definitely a weird and unique one, but I'll take Harden. Giannis without his strength doesn't offer much. However, if Harden's deep shot isn't working (or is non-existent), he can still work with a mid-range shot, and can still beat you off the dribble for the drive.

123. Would you rather have Joel Embiid or Karl-Anthony Towns on your favorite team? 

Call me crazy, but I'll take KAT. Joel Embiid in NYC just feels like it wouldn't work, and wouldn't last.

124. Would you rather build around Ja Morant or RJ Barrett? 

My brain says Ja Morant, my heart says RJ Barrett. Go Knicks.

125. Would you rather see rookie Jordan in today's game or rookie LeBron in the '90s? 

Oooooooh! This is highly intriguing, but really, such an easy answer. Young MJ in today's game would be utterly ridiculous. With his athleticism and the open play, he would be tremendous to watch. LeBron in the 90's would still farewell, but I would prefer watching a more polished LeBron in the 90's.

126. Would you rather have LeBron and Durant or Kobe and Jordan for 5 years on your favorite team? 

I'm taking Kobe and Jordan on the Knicks ::: takes self not for fantasy scenario in NBA 2K:::

Obviously, KD and LeBron are right there, but I just can't see a team losing with Kobe and MJ. Regardless of who their teammates are.

127. Would you rather get crossed by Shaw or blocked by Muggsy Bogues? 

Both are obviously embarrassing. I'll go with Shaq crossing me up.

128. Would you rather have Kemba Walker or John Wall? 

I'm sure this is going to have some people roll their eyes (or maybe not?), but I'm going with Kemba Walker. I've always been a fan of watching him play since his days at UCONN.

129. Would you rather have prime Jason Kidd or Prime Steve Nash?

Prime Jason Kidd - all day. Kidd was special to watch how he impacted the game on both ends. Nothing against Nash, but I'm taking prime Jason Kidd.

130. Would you rather bet your life savings on the Dream Team or the Redeem Team? 

Redeem Team. I know we all love to romanticize about the Dream Team, and I'm partial to that team as well because it was the first, but there were some dudes on that team not exactly in their prime (Mainly Magic and Bird). The Redeem Team was orchestrated and built with the purpose of dominating - reclaiming ad redeeming USA Basketball. The names on that roster were all at a high level and facing competition much more advanced than the 1992 Dream Team.

So yah, I'm going Redeem Team. Don't come at me.

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.

Thoughts on MLB at Field of Dreams Game

"You'll REALLY like the film. It's a great baseball movie that touches on the father-son relationship - just...just a really good film."  Those were the encouraging words of my father-in-law in regards to the film, Field of Dreams, on the weekend prior to the MLB at Field of Dreams game in Iowa. There were among the few recommendations or positive reviews that I received as the fever pitch (no pun intended - and a terrible movie about the RedSox and Baseball - blah) built toward the game. I, a baseball fan, never saw the movie, or really, had little interest in it.  I finally watched it based on the nudges, excitable remarks, and surprisingly shocked reactions when I mentioned that I never saw the film. And of course, because it would be nice to have SOME context to why the game was special. For me, the film was. well,  it was just there. Good movie - great script for sure. I guess I just never got caught in the romanticizing of baseball that the film elicits for me.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/17/21

3 Up 1. WNBA Finals - The WNBA playoffs are definitely going to be in the running for my Sporting Event of the Year Award. What a series! The Finals were capped off by an amazing game before a raucous crowd in Chicago. Kudos to everyone, especially the amazing story of Candace Parker returning home and winning a chip. Major props to Courtney Vandersloot.  2. New 2022 Quarters - Get ready for your money to diversify - well just a bit. But it's a start! Beginning in 2022, the US quarter coins will feature trailblazing American women such as civil rights activist; astronaut Sally Ride, the first American woman in space; Wilma Mankiller, the Cherokee Nation's first principal woman chief; Adelina "Nina" Otero-Warren, a leader in New Mexico's suffrage movement; and Anna May Wong, the first Hollywood film star of Chinese American descent.
