Point Guard or Center?

New, comments

Well, hmmm... The original plan for tonight's post was the latest edition of the VideoCast, but YouTube is playing coy with me. First it told me it had trouble with the upload but then there's no option to resume it and now it's telling me it's processing the video. Since upload takes six hours and processing two or three, I don't want to disbelieve it and cut off its work in the middle. On the other hand, I don't believe it. I think I'm waiting only to arrive at a big old "Error...Ha Ha on you!" message at the end. So...scrap the VideoCast idea until we figure out what's going on.

That's OK, as I have a burning question for you. Point guards are going like hotcakes on the free agent market now, with Steve Nash and Goran Dragic and Deron Williams all making decisions about their tenures within the last 24 hours. At the same time Roy Hibbert and Chris Kaman are getting plenty of press around here and Dwight Howard's "yes-no" routine is still charging through the consciousness of the national press. Conveniently the Blazers selected (surprise!) a point guard and a center in this year's draft.

So here's my question: If you could choose only one, would you prefer to have an elite point guard or an elite center on your team? What arguments would you make to support your decision?

Obviously real-life players will come up in the debate but I'm not going to put forth any now, as the discussion would devolve into a comparison between just those two players. That's part of the process, but not the whole point. The basketball gods will wave their magic wand and give your team either a fantastic 7-footer or a fantastic floor general. Which do you choose? Weigh in below.
