  • Legacy League Match #2 - Axel vs Dogelover1234

    The legacy league was created to pit teams drafted by fellow RR members against each other and allow the general RR populous to vote on who would win this winner take all, single elimination game if all players were at their peak performance.

    Each team drafted a 10 man roster. Each team provided a gameplan justification as to why they believe they should get your vote. Each team is allowed 1 post for "in game adjustments." The role of RR community is simple, vote for who you believe should win. Post justification if you want (encouraged) and weigh the pros and cons for all to see, but ultimately, your vote decides who will win this tournament of legends.

    Axel's Gameplan
    Attack Nash and Dirk, they can't be hidden. Screen heavy game with Paul/Bird forcing Nash and Dirk to be main defenders. Both great passers to find open man if help comes. Clyde and Artest have size advantage on wings. Sheed and Ibaka ideal defenders for Dirk off bench too. Bird was All-Def 2nd team as a PF, good defender for Dirk. Artest/Butler on Pierce.

    Off bench, Sheed has size advantage against any PF on Dogelover to punish in the post. Sabonis and Howard both have size to battle Russell on boards and skills to score if Russell helps Nash/Dirk defend.

    All 10 of my players are good to great defenders. 9 of 10 can hit 3 pointers. Bird and Sabonis are great passers who can run an offence from high post. Can ICE, hedge or trap on PnR with mobile bigs and elite ball defenders.




    Dogelover Lineup:
    Steve Nash: MVP, All NBA first team, Led league in Assists (2005-2006)
    Dwayne Wade: NBA Champion, All-NBA(2nd), All Defense(2nd), Finals MVP (in prime seasons)
    Paul Pierce: Finals MVP, 39% 3pt%, Great Defender, Shot maker
    Dirk Nowitzki: Greatest Shooting big ever, NBA Champ, Finals MVP
    Bill RussellIn Game Adjustments!

    Axel's adjustments

    Versatile defenders off Dogelover's bench greatly limit scoring and playmaking ability of offence. No real playmaker besides Nash and no great perimeter defender for Bird with starters. To hide Nash/Dirk, sacrifice his offence while Artest/Butler disrupt Wade/Pierce and still score. I have more balance and rebounding.

    Plus


    Dogelover1234 adjustments
    Defensively, we can pack the paint against non-elite shooters and closeout with long athletic wings. Dirk will feast in the post or popping against the smaller Bird. All my players are smart passers, and mostly all good at driving and making the right pass. We can always hack Dwight too.

    So RR faithful, who wins this game?

      Leaning Axel here, too many defensive holes for Dogelover.

        god damn...I gotta go with Dogelover, I don't think you can contain that offensive power and with 3 extremely versatile defenders on the bench it should cover up for the holes defensively at PG and PF

          I agree but I need to see the adjustments before I decide on who's going to come out on top.

                  You guys need to actually fill out the poll above in both game threads. Look at it as a scoreboard.

                            does that mean we may have some double counted votes?
