Welcome back to my list of the top 10 best two-way players in franchise history! As usual, PLEASE NOTE that bring higher on the list doesn't ALWAYS mean that player is better than all the previous ones. It can mean he's just a better overall player on both sides of the floor or excels significantly more in one area.
Do I need to explain this one? Jordan was an extremely efficient, elite scorer and one of the best perimeter defenders the league has ever seen. He would drop 30-50 points on your head while also making plays, grabbing rebounds and shutting down the opposing team's best player. Not much more I need to say 😂.
Thank you guys got the support on this series! Be sure to answer the question on my story to let me know what the next top 10 should be!
Curry, Bron, KD. The shooting ability of Curry and KD together is almost impossible to guard and it'd open driving lanes for LeBron. Bron could facilitate for them as well. Nobody could stop them offensively as they are all extremely difficult to guard 1 on 1.
On Scoop B radio, Jamal Crawford told Brandon Robinson that he was really happy to see Drose play well in the Playoffs. He said,
“Number one, he was already one of my favorite players ever, one of my favorite people ever. For a bigger star, he’s as genuine as anyone I’ve ever met, so you root for a dude like that. So before we even played together, I was already a fan of his. He’s one of my favorites. And then, to see him every day, to see his talent, to see his work ethic, he’s the perfect example of being in situations where people believe in you.”
(Excerpts from New Jamal Crawford interview on Derrick Rose)
Crawford says he was so happy to see Rose play well in the playoffs and thinks Rose will be even better in the 2018-19 season. “It was unbelievable for multiple reasons,” Crawford told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson on Scoop B Radio. “Number one, he was already one of my favorite players ever, one of my favorite people ever. For a bigger star, he’s as genuine as anyone I’ve ever met, so you root for a dude like that. So before we even played together, I was already a fan of his. He’s one of my favorites. And then, to see him every day, to see his talent, to see his work ethic, he’s the perfect example of being in situations where people believe in you. “[Tom] Thibodeau believed in him and gave him that opportunity when people were writing him off. Maybe he’s not exactly the same as he was when he was 22, but he’s still better than so many guards out there, and he could show it. Playing in Minnesota and playing in the playoffs, he reminded people how good he is. Personally, I was just so happy, and I expect big things from him this year as well.” Still, Crawford is rooting for Rose, who re-signed with the Timberwolves on a one-year contract. Crawford says he was amazed to see how humble and athletic Rose is after all the injuries the Chicago native has gone through. “His athleticism is still there,” Crawford told Robinson. “He’s still as fast as any guard out there. He would have some practices where he’d just dominate and get to the lane at will, hit shots, hit mid-range shots and floaters, all the reasons people love him. And he can do all those things. He would just run back so nonchalant, like I could do this whenever I want. He didn’t say that, but his play was so easy for him, so I think that’s something he’s going to show more this year and people will be pleasantly surprised" #derrickrose#DRose#nba#mvp#adidas#adidasoriginals#nike#underarmour#jordans#michaeljordan#chicago#chicagobulls#MinnesotaTimberwolves#wolves#cavs#clevelandcavaliers#lebron#lebronjames#stephencurry#losangeleslakers#lakers#basketball#dunks#crossover#vegas#training#trainer#workouts

KD is proving to be an all time great. He is probably the best scorer in the game and one of the best ever. He is impossible to guard. He can pullup from anywhere, create his own shot, finish, and shoot over anyone. Since joining GS, his defense and efficiency have improved a great deal. His size and length allow him to guard multiple positions and be very versatile.
Kobe Bryant almost forced his way to Chicago to play for the Bulls in 2004 and then 2007. Did you want to see Kobe in a Bulls jersey? (Quote is about 2004) -
Kobe: “We were looking for places in Chicago, man. We were flying up there to meet with (Jerry) Reinsdorf and (John) Paxson. We were moving out to Lake Forest, I think it was. Chicago. And went on vacation in Italy, I got a phone call. (Then-agent) Rob Pelinka called and he said, ‘Shaq just requested a trade.’ I was like, ‘Well there goes Chicago.’ There’s no way the Lakers are going to lose me and Shaq in the same year.”
