What if NBAers played for the Hometown Team?

Over at Depressed Fan, they realigned the NBA rosters according to where the players are from. Everybody plays for the hometown team, no exceptions. It's a pretty cool look at how different everything would be and what cities and towns are hotspots for future NBA talent.

Here are some of the best teams and some interesting squads:

Charlotte Bobcats:
PG Chris Paul (Clemmons, NC)
SG Ray Allen (Dalzell, SC)
SF Josh Howard (Winston-Salem, NC)
PF Antawn Jamison (Charlotte, NC)/David West (Garner, NC)
C Kevin Garnett (Mauldin, SC)
This is the best team out and I can't see any reasonable way that this team wouldn't win the title. Chris Paul and KG would be unstoppable together and Allen/Howard/West is a deadly finish to the starting 5.
Chicago Bulls:
PG Derrick Rose (Chicago, IL)
SG Dwyane Wade (Oak Lawn, IL)
SF Andre Iguodala (Springfield, IL)/Wilson Chandler (Benton Harbor, MI)
PF Corey Maggette (Oak Park, IL)
C Eddy Curry (South Holland, IL)
Watching Rose, Wade, and Iguodala together would be awesome. The dunks, drives, and highlights would be unbelievable to watch.
Houston Rockets:
PG TJ Ford (Sugarland, TX)
SG Rashard Lewis (Alief, TX)/Daniel Gibson (Houston, TX)
SF Paul Millsap (Grambling, LA)
PF Kendrick Perkins (Beaumont, TX)
C Emeka Okafor (Houston, TX)
This is a solid team that would do a great job competing. But, no way Perk gets in this starting lineup.
New Jersey Nets:
PG Randy Foye (Newark, NJ)
SG J.R. Smith (Newark, NJ)
SF Al Harrington (Elizabeth, NJ)
PF Troy Murphy (Morristown, NJ)/Tim Thomas (Paterson, NJ)
C Andrew Bynum (Metuchen, NJ)
This team would be surprisingly good. Harrington and Tim Thomas would spread the floor and give Foye and Smith room to run all over the floor. Not too mention Bynum is the middle.
New Orleans Hornets:
PG Chris Duhon (Slidell, LA)
SG Monta Ellis (Jackson, MS)/Mo Williams (Jackson, MS)
SF Danny Granger (New Orleans, LA)
PF Tyrus Thomas (Baton Rogue, LA)
C Al Jefferson (Prentiss, MS)
I like this team with Mo at the point. This team is very solid and would give team nightmares with their athleticism.
Orlando Magic:
PG Damien Wilkins (Orlando, FL)
SG Vince Carter (Daytona Beach, FL)
SF Tracy McGrady (Auburndale, FL)/Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (Montverde, FL)
PF Marreese Speights (St. Petersburg, FL)
C Amare Stoudemire (Orlando, FL)
This team would suck, but watching VC, T-Mac, and Amare would be awesome.
Washington Wizards:
PG Allen Iverson (Hampton, VA)
SG Jeff Green (Hyattsville, MD)
SF Carmelo Anthony (Towson, MD)
PF Kevin Durant (Rockville, MD)/Michael Beasley (Prince George's County, MD)
C Rudy Gay (Severn, MD)
This is another team that would be better suited for the highlight reel than standings. Green should really be the PF and Durant the SG. They'd get bullied all day inside, but who cares, they'd push the fastest pace of all-time. It'd be 4 seconds or less.

  5. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
