We’re in Atlanta this week, which means we’re lucky enough to stay with our man whore of a friend (just follow his live-tweeting of Match dates as evidence) who also happens to work for a big-time NBA media company who hooks him up with tickets all the time.
So of course, he tells me to get my ass down to Atlanta before last night’s nationally-televised game between the Hawks and Nuggets so we can enjoy some brews, talk about hot girls and try (and succeed) at getting onto the jumbotron multiple times.
In-between all this stupidity though comes a serious conversation about which current guys we’d choose to build our ultimate NBA team, keeping in mind the way they’d all mesh together.
There was a pretty good debate going back and forth about who and why we’d go one way or another, but in the end, here’s who we decided our starting-five would be.
Center – Anderson Varejao
Andy might not be a “true center”ówhich apparently doesn’t exist in the NBA these daysóbut he is a versatile, blue-collar player who defends and rebounds with the best in the league.
Hell, AV will even hit a couple shots every once in awhile.
Known for his leadership and humility, Varejao would be the perfect complement with the other great players who you’ll see make-up the rest of our squad, not demanding the ball, and knowing how to play with a superstar from his days with Bron Bron.
