Simple question.

Just curious to hear some different opinions.

They both play very similar games (guys that NEED the ball to be effective... volume shooters... undersized for the 2 guard position).

BG wants big money (he rejected 11 mil per season already) and a long deal... AI will probably take a shorter deal and a pay-cut (but he'll still wantsemi-big money as well)...

But if you are a GM, who would you go after? And why?

For instance, the Bobcats, Bulls, Hornets, and Spurs all have possible openings. But which guy would be a better fit? AI or BG??

Discuss....

The problem is that this is a team game. And his individual talents no longer trump team chemistry/play/etc..
AI was a beast.. His time has passed and he's gotta accept a lesser role..

If I'm on the younger side of the spectrum like the Bobcats or Bulls, I wouldn't want A.I. in the locker room. Yes, he plays hard on the court, but Ijust don't see him having an effect on a locker room like say, Chauncey.

As for the Hornets, CP3 needs the ball in his hands to be effective. 24 seconds in a shot clock is not enough time for CP3 and AI to co-exist handling theball.

Perhaps the Spurs wouldn't be too bad of a fit though. They have enough veterans and a no BS coach in Popovich to handle a personality like A.I.

So, to answer your question, I would probably sign BG since age is on his side.

Gordon is exactly what the Hornets need at the 2 spot. It would be a plus if he was a bit bigger.

AI is someone I don't want within 100 miles of my team.

Why not take Jamaal Tinsley too?

And Bonzi Wells back on the Rockets off the bench.

Hell, ask Rodman to unretire too.
