Seeing as I got the #1 pick and LeBron, I went with The Lebrontourage as my team name.

Seriously y'all could've given me Durant and moved on, it's such an obvious choice.  Sorry for the delay, very busy today.

I'm going to be in the (very) small minority here, but I probably would have taken Durant first...

I was actually considering it last year. The one thing that puts James slightly over the top is his ability as a passer and defender. Durant is one of the best pure shooters in the NBA, but James is arguably the more complete package. When you're starting out, a complete package is always a major plus.

LeBron is a more complete player than Durant and I consider him to be the best player in the NBA, hence the choice.

That's a very good point. I would have taken James last year but this year I think Durant took his game to another level. His offensive numbers don't even seem possible and he's quickly improving other aspects of his game, especially on defense. He took quite a leap there imo. James is still the more complete player but Durant is 4 years younger. I think, all things considered, I'd rather have 10-12 years of Durant than 6-8 of Lebron, but that may just be my preference.

I'm definitely not being critical of the choice. LeBron is the most complete player in the league so it's obviously still a good one. As I said though, my preference would be to take the younger player who took a major leap this year.

I can't blame you there. Durant certainly did just that, and I can't disagree. It's a matter of taste at this point.
