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 - 5/22/22

3 Up 1. NY Times Investigative Series on Haiti - The history of Haiti is such a complex (and unfortunate) one. Really, it's a story that goes untold, specifically for the context of how the country is viewed. From being forced to pay operations to enslavers (yeah, you read that right), to so many other historical setbacks - including American interventions - the nation's history is so well laid out in this latest NY Times piece. I urge you to give it a read.  2. Equal Pay for US Women's Soccer Team - Kudos to US Soccer on coming around to giving the USWNT their due - equal pay for prize money from the World Cup. It's a start, and more importantly, it's a push forward for women's sports that do in fact push the needle in comparison, or more so, to their male counterparts.  3. Kate McKinnon - Random "UP" here, but I'm doing it anyway...A few SNL usuals are rumored to be walking away, including Kate McKinnon. The show obviously doesn't carry the

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/10/22

3 Up 1. Ketanji Brown Jackson - The new Supreme Court Justice is a win for black and brown girls everywhere. Representation matters.  2. Women's College Basketball Ratings - I'm giving the women's tournament its due as it garnered the highest television ratings ever for the national championship game in eighteen years. And that was head-to-head with the Grammys! Spare me the "women's sports don't draw" tired narrative. Invest in women's sports, period.  3. Baseball Returns - Sure, the sport bothered fans over the winter with its ugly and insulting labor spat. However, it's back, and that's cool.  3 Down 1. Ukraine Images - Unfortunately, I had to put the ongoing acts in Ukraine back in the tops spot. Have you seen some of the images coming out of the country? For me, it was the image of parents writing children's information (i.e. names, details of eating habits, etc...) on their backs - on their backs! - in anticipation of being separated

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/15/22

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.

3 Up 1. Harvard Statement on Enslavement Past - We're currently in a world where dealing with slavery and oppression and all that it was in the past has created further division of the present, as well as ideals to move forward. We're all still trying to figure that out, but as we do, props are given to those who do it without the trendiness of the gesture.  Harvard can be slammed for a whole lot in this arena, but they get the top spot this week for taking steps in a major way - just admitting its connection - is a great start.  2. "Out of Pandemic" Phase - The world surely feels as "normal" as it's felt in a long time. While Dr. Facui's comments were well...confusing and required some cleaning up, the gesture is very much understood - we ain't that bad anymore! Things are definitely not going to snap back to pre-2020, but it definitely feels as close to non-pandemic-ish as it ever has.
