Have you ever dreamed about putting together your very own NBA team? Well, this is your lucky day. Even so, as you may know by now, there are times when teams don't get to actually choose their fate. Sometimes they just have to do the best they can with the hand they're dealt. That's what's going to happen today.
None of us gets to choose our birthday. That's just how life goes. At least, this time, you're present will be having your very own NBA franchise and star player to build around.
You'll get to choose among a pool of All-Stars like LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Joel Embiid, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and Kevin Durant.
This will be kind of like a Fantasy Draft but way more entertaining. I mean, imagine Kevin Durant joining the Memphis Grizzlies to play side by side with Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. They'd be instant Championship contenders.
I, for instance, would have Joel Embiid playing for the Washington Wizards (September 20). He may not be what they need to contend, but hey, a Big 3 consisting of John Wall, Bradley Beal, and Joel Embiid could make some noise out of the Eastern Conference, am I right?
The Wizards have lacked an interior presence for years and Embiid would give them a much-needed toughness below the rim, a mobile big man that can post-up, shoot, and contest shots all over the court. That would make their historically bad defense way better, to say the least.
That's the beauty of this game. The possibilities are endless and crazy as it may seem, sometimes the league actually kind of works that way. Comment your franchise player and your team below and see who's got the best squad.
