My vote goes to football. The coaches' offensive/defensive plays or philosophy makes a big difference.
I'll break it down for u:
Shaq > Ben Wallace - but Ben isn't just a medicore player!
Malone < R. Wallace - Malone on the downside of his career and Wallace finally controlling his temper.
Geogre < T. Prince - Prince is a solid player. Good defensive palyer that can contribute to the offense.
Kobe > Rip Hamilton - Kobe is the most skilled player in the game, but Rip shined too. Great shooters.
Payton < Billups - Payton never found his game in LA, Billups is the go-to guy on that team and has come up big, time after time.
Medvedenko < Okur
Oh I just found out that Payton's been traded to the Celtics.... check the Fantasy Basketball Forum!
