  • Legacy Knockout Maury vs 007

    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.

    007 STARTING LINEUPBENCH:GAMEPLAN

    I've got the best possible players to guard Jordan. Pippen is the greatest perimeter defender of all time, and Rodman is right up there with him, and is someone used to guarding Jordan. The two will be able to switch when needed, with the other locking down Erving. In the frontcourt Wilt has the advantage on all the bigs Maury can throw at him. He has size on Walton, Webber and Pettit and has athleticism and speed to blow by Ming on the break, maneuver around him in the post and defend him better than anyone Ming ever faced. Parish will take the inevitably smaller player Maury lines up at PF and will use his size to defend and shoot over his smaller matchups. Kidd can sag off Thomas slightly on the perimeter, preventing drives. The two 7-footers and Rodman means a huge rebounding advantage and lots of second-chance points.

    007 is very offensively challenged with only one go to guy, while I have at least 3 and possibly even 4 go to guys. Bill Walton was the ultimate winner and you guys have to watch the video I submitted. If it comes down to it, my team will outscore 007.

      Damn ... Scottie Pippen guarding Michael Jordan .. love it. Lol

      This isn't my favourite 007 lineup, and he knows why since we played, haha so I'll wait and see what happens, but 007 wouldn't have that much difficulty scoring against this lineup I don't think. But Maury would certainly have to work for every 2 points on the board.

        Walton and Ming and Parish and Wilt. You guys are both crazy.

          Well, the way things stand, I think both teams would chuck a lot. It's just going to be so crowded inside.

          Neither team is going to attack the rim as much as these players loved to attack in real life.

          Maury has some great perimeter scorers, but 007 has ridiculous perimeter defense and a bit better 3pt shooting. Overall, it's going to be a grind for both teams.

          To me, right now, before adjustments, it comes down to rebounding and second chance points, as I think both teams would chuck a lot. 007 should get more offensive boards, as he has 3 all time great rebounders for their positions, in Wilt, Rodman and Jason Kidd.

          Also team Maury is leaving Jason Kidd open at 3 -- I think that's going to hurt them, JKidd could knock down 3pt shots pretty well if given time and space. In a game like this, where offensive efficiency on both sides will be pretty low (I think), Jason Kidd taking open 3s is an advantage.

                With Wilt as an upgrade over Robinson and a great point guard in Kidd. Similar grind it out style though with more offence than Dan had last year around Pippen and Rodman.

                007 is a great match up to take out Jordan and Co. Not sure where my vote goes at this time.

                  Pretty similar. He has Wilt, I had the Admiral. Very good defensive roster. I admit, I may be biased.

                    Saying I have only one go-to guy is disrespectful to Pippen. When Jordan left he became the second player to lead his team in all major statistical categories and had 3 straight All-NBA first teams. I've got 3 great perimeter defenders and 2 huge precenses in the paint. You're not outscoring me easily.

                      My team won't get out rebounded. Jordan was a great rebounder. Julius Erving averaged over 10 rebounds per game several times in his career, Bill Walton is at nearly 15 rpg and Yao was a beast. I don't buy that we will get destroyed on the glass. Jason Kidd couldn't shoot at all in his prime.

                        Kidd was as good of a rebounder as Jordan. Pippen averaged 9 a game in his prime, Parish averaged 12. Wilt and Rodman combined have 18 rebounding titles. Wilt averaged over 25 a game. Rodman has the highest rebounding percentage of all-time. My team is built to crash the glass.

                          Just looking into this now. What were the restrictions around the roster construction? Were there any?

                            We had a draft (snake format).
