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.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/25/22

3  Up 1. Albert Pujols - 700 homeruns is insane. Even through a generation of steroids, the number is incredibly exclusive (sans, you know, Bonds). So much props to Pujols who literally puts himself in some rarified discussions among the game's greatest.  Here are some quick thoughts from yours truly on Pujols hitting 700 .  2. PATHFINDER - The fight against cancer just got a smidge better. GRAIL announced results from their PATHFINDER study that may have found ways to provide early detection screening to significantly enhance the discovery of cancer well before symptoms begin.  I accidentally ran into this story - why isn't this more headline news? SMH.  3. Pandemic Over? - The World Health Organization (remember them, before everyone suddenly became public health experts) described COVID as an "acute global emergency". Going even further, announced that 20M global deaths were avoided last year due to vaccines. Just outright amazing.  3 Down 1. Brett Favre - No resp

5 Thoughts on Pujols Hitting 700

It almost feels like the negative vitriol that surrounded Major League Baseball and its labor issues have dissipated into an air of forgetfulness and forgiveness. A season that has brought us old-school lore with the chasing of historical numbers by way of Aaron Judge and Albert Pujols, and the likes of a modern-day Babe Ruth, in another dominant season by Shohei Ohtani, would ultimately do that. Sprinkle in some amazing rookies on the rise, and all of sudden it's, what did I say about baseball's treatment of fans? It's been some season... In this post, I want to focus on Albert Pujols...the "King", the "Machine", one of the greatest ever. After hitting a historic 700th Home Run ( by the way, I definitely predicted that back in March  - just humble-bragging a bit), I wanted to drop five (fitting, yeah?) thoughts on Albert Pujols:  GREATEST EVER?! - Pujols' career often feels like the Angels' years were some sort of nightmare or a bad edition in a

Durant Showed Us Who He Was

When people show you who they are, believe them.  That's what my thought process is reduced to regarding Kevin Durant, his trade request from the Brooklyn Nets, and well, everything else that surrounds the latest drama that has taken over the NBA (and in many ways, the sports world).  Kevin Durant is immensely talented. Superhuman in so many ways. If you see him in person (as I have many times at the Barclays Center as a Brooklyn Net, and once at the Staples Center as a young member of the Oklahoma City Thunder), you're simply in awe of his stature, his ability, and his grace on the court. It's the kind of aura that keeps you believing in the aura of pro sports, and the sheer exclusiveness of these human beings. It's in the same realm as LeBron James and Steph Curry, physical and ability marvels that go just beyond remarkable, existing in a realm of specialness that cannot be described other than comprehension with the eyes.  Kevin Durant is one of my favorite athletes

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/18/22

3 Up 1.  Yvon Chouinard - Nothing says big baller like announcing you're donating your company's worth to the mission of fighting climate change. Sure, there are some tax benefits (let's not be silly), but that's still a pretty damn impressive thing to do. Wish we saw that more from billionaires.  2. Aaron Judge - Well, the big fella is on his way to breaking the record of 61 home runs (whether you think it's just the American League record or the in fact still the single-season home run record is up to you). I just hope he does it over the next two days at Yankee Stadium, on YES, with Michael Kay on the call. It'll be a damn shame if it happened on Apple TV where it happens in a vacuum and most fans will be unable to experience history. That would be awful for baseball.  3. How The Word is Passed - This is a selfish "Up" from me because I finally finished this book that has been on my list for a while - and it is a must-read for all. I'm a big
