Think you're the next Darryl Morey? Test your basketball wits in a fun challenge that has been circulating sports blogs in recent days.
You have $15 to pick a starting five from Wake Forest's five best players at each position. The best player at a position is $5 and the fifth best player at a position is $1. For those math wizards out there, the average salary/player is $3.
|PG||Chris Paul||Randolph Childress||Charlie Davis||
|SG||Lefty Davis||Jeff Teague||Bob Leonard||Justin Gray||Tony Byers|
|SF||Josh Howard||Kenny Green||Al-Farouq Aminu||James Johnson||Sam Ivy|
|PF||Dickie Hemric||Rod Griffin||Rodney Rogers||Gil McGregor||Dave Budd|
|C||Tim Duncan||Len Chappell||Darius Songaila||Jim Johnstone||Eric Williams|
As some might notice, I took a few positional liberties. For example, Jeff Teague played point guard most of his career. However, Wake is too deep at point guard and Teague did play off-ball with Ish Smith. The toughest players to leave off this list were- whattayaknow- all point guards. Smith, Frank Johnson and Billy Packer each had illustrious careers.
With a laundry list of NBA studs, ranging from CP3 to Muggsy Bogues to Jeff Teague, Wake Forest should garner up a new nickname for its basketball program.
POINT GUARD U!
What's your starting five?
