  • Legacy League match 13 TTF VS Joey

    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.

    Finesse vs the best. Hakeem vs Kareem. I would work the pick and roll and slash and kick game heavily in this game. Reggie would act is the faithful release valve. Chuck could out run and out rebound his counter part. Team is full of willing passers Bruce Bowen can’t guard “Big Game James”


    With GP out on the floor there would be heavy emphasis on guarding passing lanes and keeping the ball out of the hands of Hakeem. Ben Wallace would come to help slow down Hakeem. Again though the key would be turning this into a perimeter game. James Worthy and Chuck would Switch between the two.

    Joeys Gameplan (150 words)
    With Gary Payton on record saying John Stockton was the toughest, most fundamentally sound person he EVER guarded, and with very few favourable matchups for TTF, I feel like my all-around defense, passing, shooting, and attacking will prevail.

    We'll give Westbrook plenty of space and opportunity to kill all offensive flow, but throw DJ at him occasionally to show him who's boss. We'll crowd and pester everyone else hard with our depth of defenders, and tie them in knots with off ball screens and clean shots.
    Front Kareem hard, throw lots of length at him, go small for portions to force TTF to chase or adjust.

    TMac lighting up Reggie would be awesome to watch.
    Take advantage of KATs inexperience at every opportunity, and Wallaces complete ineptness on Offense. No way Barkley could stop the original round mound of rebound Reed. Use overall length advantage to disrupt lanes and shots.

    In Game Adjustments - Coming Soon!

    So RR faithful, who wins this game?

    "Adjustments" (50 words)
    Using Wallace to "slow down Hakeem" (not?), per TTF gameplan, means Kareem has to come out of the game. Perfect.

    And seeing as Stockton (37yo) outplayed Payton (31yo) in the video posted above, I feel confident prime Stockton and Hakeem et al would prevail. I encourage voters to watch this:

      Im leaning Joey but think Barkley would take Reed's lunch money all game.
