In honor of the NBA lockout ending and the start of the 2011-12 season approaching, I put together an early Christmas gift for NBA fans—a legends vs. current all-stars mock one-on-one tournament.
What we have here is a 64-player, one-on-one tournament that pits 32 NBA legends against 32 NBA current all-stars.
This incredible tournament provides match-ups we've all dreamed of seeing, like Jordan vs. Kobe/LeBron, Olajuwon vs. Howard, Dr. J vs. Blake Griffin, Bird vs. Nowitzki, Magic vs. Wade and Magic vs. Rose.
The players are split up in a 64-player march madness-like bracket based on the following positions: center/power forward (C/PF), power forward/small forward (PF/SF), small forward/shooting guard (SF/SG) and shooting guard/point guard (SG/PG).
If you're not excited about this epic one-on-one showdown, you aren't a true NBA fan.
Now onto the tournament rules.
