Guard Showdown: Lee, Yap: Who Would Lead His Team to Greatness?

James Yap and Paul Lee


Ever since the trade between Paul Lee and James Yap happened, comparisons arise from time to time. 

This season, let us try to extract possible outcomes for this two superstar guards with their respective teams.

The question is who would succeed this season?

It is obvious that the two guards light became dim at the time they've been traded. It is because they've lost the built chemistry with the former team. Star Hotshots, Now the Magnolia Hotshots is a defensive team, while Rain or Shine is a run and gun type. An offensive and defensive team is very much different with all aspects especially game pace which when he used to a specific one, will take a significant amount of a time to adapt to a new one.

The variety of their teams explained their dormancy this past season. The gameplay is so new to Lee and Yap that they're being veteran in the league seemed to shrink to a negligible, insignificant amount.

I have mentioned earlier about the 'built chemistry' of Paul Lee with the Elasto Painters and James Yap with the former Star Hotshots. From the term itself 'built', chemistry is not an inherent character of a team, it is a substance built through experience. Assuming that one season is a relatively sufficient amount of time for the chemistry to be established with their new teams, how and what will be their role and whose team would be greater?


1. The Elasto Painters with James Yap

Almost everybody in ROS can deliver from beyond the arc. In fact, even the biggest man there is like Beau Belga could easily drill threes. With the addition of James Yap in their pool, they could even empower the run and gun style of ROS by significantly increasing outside efficiency with Yap. A more accurate and efficient three-point shooting would be ROS' main card.


2. Hotshots with the Leethal Weapon

Paul Lee is known to be one of the players with the best handle in the league. The Filipino basketball lacks that and that makes Paul Lee an exceptional guard. He could play in all kinds of situation and make baskets for himself or for his teammates with his fancy dribbling skills. With Paul Lee in a defensive team like Magnolia, their defensive stops being converted to points probability would increase. A point guard which can cross over and cut through the defense without using screens much would be very great because the original positions of the play would not be disrupted during set up of play. All Paul Lee needs is isolation.


Who would be a better team?

Prediction

With the ROS, it is only an empowered outside shooting. They just have an improved old style. But with the Hotshots, Paul Lee's skills would make the whole team look and play different especially offensively. It would be the Magnolia over ROS this season.
