If you had the ability to start an expansion franchise with Superstar X, what position would you want him to play and why?
Considering the difference in positions among the "top 4" in this years draft, (Exum - PG, Wiggins - SG, Parker - PF, Embiid - C), this is a topic that is probably being discussed by scouts and executives during the next month leading up to the draft.
The position is based on what position the player would play in an ideal situation. With a player like Lebron, he can play all 5 positions. A player like Shaq, would only be able to play PF and C. This should come into play in your decision, as the versatility of LeBron is extremely valuable.
With that being said, my personal preference would be a C due to their game-changing ability on defense, helping to deny one of two preferred shots (layups), and ability to draw double-teams and open up the floor on offense. I also think that the scarcity of good centers in the game today would cause matchup problems for most opponents.
