We spend all day debating the choices NBA GMs make. Most of us think we can do things better than the suit running our favorite team.

Now is your chance. Wednesday GM gives you the opportunity to make personnel decisions on NBA talent. Don’t like Mitch Kupchak? Can’t stand Isiah Thomas? Well, you replace the hack you bitch about in the front office.

So get comfy in your new gig as GM and tell us what you would do in the comment box below.

The Future At Two-Guard

Decision 1: or .

The Details: They are two of the NBA’s best young shooting guards. Gordon, despite his fine play, has no contract past this upcoming season. Last week, K-Mart got his, inking a five year, 55 million dollar extension.  

Is Martin more deserving of an extension than Gordon? Both are streaky shooters. But Connecticut Ben has had several strong seasons and he hits big shots. K-Mart’s athleticism only gives him the edge on the glass and in the open court.

The Call: Slight nod to Gordon. He’s a little more developed and should also get an extension..

The Athletic Freaks

Decision 2: or .

The Details: Howard and Stoudemire split minutes for Team USA. Howard dominated down low, grabbing rebounds, swatting shots, and shooting a high percentage from the floor. But the newly shredded STAT was also impressive, providing energy and showing off his much-improved outside range.

So who starts at the Beijing Olympics? Howard is more imposing, while Stoudemire keeps improving.

The Call: Howard should start. Not because he’s the better player. Team USA needs his wider frame.

The Next One At Point Guard

Decision 3: , , or .

The Details: The 2005 NBA draft had some outstanding table-setters. Williams, Paul, and Felton were taken third, fourth, and fifth overall. Back then, opinions were mixed on who would develop into the best pro.

Two years later, are opinions still mixed? Who is the best point guard? Last year, Paul established himself by winning rookie of the year. But Williams was a big part of the Jazz’s success last season.  And Felton has spent all summer working on his fitness, so look for him to have a big season.

The Call: Paul will be an all-star and Felton will emerge as a top ten point guard. But Williams is The Next One. Call him Jason Kidd with a jumpshot.
