A caller on this morning’s radio show raised a good UK basketball question….
Who would you take in a pickup game: UK’s American-born players or the international guys?
For the sake of keeping it fair in terms of depth, we’ll say it’s a three-on-three game with one reserve. Let’s build two lineups from the roster…
For the United States team, we’ll call it Tyler Ulis, Isaiah Briscoe and Alex Poythress with Marcus Lee as the reserve. The International team fills itself out, with Skal Labissiere, Jamal Murray and either Isaac Humphries or Mychal Mulder, depending on your style of play.
I think I’ll take the Americans, but not by much. It’s hard to turn down any team with Skal Labissiere and Jamal Murray. I think the third and fourth guys are the difference-makers.
What do you think?
And how can we set this up?
