Dream head to heads.
« on: May 19, 2023, 12:45:02 AM »
Since it's the off-season I was hoping to start a topic that could do something other than point fingers at one another.  I just had the thought of 'what would be the best star vs star match up you'd like to see?'

Graduating class isn't a factor.  A couple I came up with in my head are 'Wade v Harangody', 'Howard v Walker', and 'JFB v Ndefo'

It's downtime.  Let the minds wander.  Try to keep it civil, tough ask I know, but what are some of the dream match-ups you wish could have happened? 

I look forward to this post being hijacked in 45 minutes

DWade vs JFB.  Both in their primes.

How are you defining "primes."  If it's "the very best Jimmy Butler Playoff run" of 15-25 game sample size, that might be interesting.  If it's the totality of their primes (a number of years) or best full season, Wade's a couple steps above Jimmy.

Agree. Butler’s “prime” came later in his career than Wade’s. Dwayne at age 25-27 was better than Jimmy at that age. Jimmy at 33 is better than Dwyane was at 33. Overall, though, the edge has to go to Dwyane.

Yes, Please!

Maybe Prime Mickelson vs. Prime Watson as a first course.

Yeah, obviously Wade had a much better career than Jimmy.  But I'd love to see Jimmy's peak level play (his right-now level) vs. Wade at whatever his peak was.  That would be an epic battle of some great warriors.

Is Jake Arrietta still in the league? If so, it’s been back.

Jake is retired but the Brewers are paying Ryan until 2031.

Yup.  And for an organization like the Brewers it was worth every penny.  Yeli followed the same lead, but was smart enough to stop using them when he got his big payday.  He can be as unproductive as any player in the MLB and he'll still get his 9 digits of money.  The only thing that will prevent that is getting caught.  He's a smart man.

Well to be fair, the Brewers have to be one of the worst franchises in MLB history. 54 years and

1 Pennant

Nobody's taking his contract.

It doesn't take much to be an all time great Brewer.
