So I was reading through some of the older posts here, trying to catch up on some missed reading and fan feedback. I saw a lot of discussion on Brandon Jennings, team needs moving forward and things of that nature. I thought it would be fun to do a little game where we rank the best players at each position in the central division and then get to make one swap to see how the team would look.
Again, this may not be the "best" player at the position, just my personal preference. Also, if I rank players ahead of Bucks, it does not mean I do not want that player on the team. Rankings also reflect the "right now" attitude. So in a year, maybe Jennings jumps over Stuckey, but this year I felt Stuckey was the better player (as an example).
I already know the first thing going to be said is John Salmons!? WTF man!? But the truth is there is just not much talent at the SG position in this division and he is still about as complete a guard (potentially) in the Central. I think clearly Indiana, as of now, will have the best SGs in the division next season if George and Rush keep growing.
So, if I had to make one flip-flop, it is simple. I take Rose for Jennings. The team would have a go-to player with plenty of great pieces around him. Makes the Bucks a top-4 team in the East in my opinion.
What would you do? How do you rank the players? Am I as high as a kite for ranking Salmons No. 1 at SG?
