Interesting concept

Interesting concept, however if we are talking about a pre-injury Grant Hill and pre-injury Elton Brand then you need to adjust the starting lineup.

I would say:
C Duncan
PF Brand
SF Hill
SG Carter
PG Paul

Brand and Boozer is a toss-up, but I go with Brand because he's better defensively. Plus, Duncan can play high-post to Brand's low-post. Jamison is good, but he's such a tweener. He's better off coming off the bench on this team. I think the weak-link of the team is probably at SG. There isn't much depth, and you need depth for the times VC makes you mad from lack of defense and jacking up contested shots.

I agree for the most part

I agree for the most part but my starting 5 would look like this...

1. CP3
2. Vince
3. Josh Howard
4. Tim Duncan
5. Rasheed Wallace (Dont understand why he's not on any of ya'll teams)

6. Antoine Jamison
7. Carlos Boozer
8. Luol Deng
9. Grant Hill
10. Marvin Williams
11. Corey Maggette
12. Raymond Felton

*short on 2 guards so my wild card would be Stephen Curry

I like your line-up

I like your line-up matrix061086, however, I would make one slight adjustment. BASED ON TALENT, i would take Rasheed Wallace over Brand & Boozer. Wallace is definitely a hot-head, but his talent is undeniable! Thus, i would say:

C Duncan
PF Wallace
SF Hill (pre-injured)
SG Carter
PG Paul

All of you guys are leaving

All of you guys are leaving out Shane Battier and Dahntay Jones. Ask any Rocket and they'll tell you how valuable Battier is. And I think Jones might become a more athletic Bruce Bowen.

Don't forget about Flip Murray too...solid bench player for the Hawks.

Hmmm...I like this..... 1.

Hmmm...I like this.....

1. Tim Duncan (Wake)
2. Antwan Jamison (UNC)
3. Shane Battier (Duke)
4. Grant Hill (Duke)
5. Chris Paul (Wake)

In no order after this point...
6. Elton Brand (Duke)
7. Vince Carter (UNC)
8. Tyler Hansbrough (UNC)
9. Josh Howard (Wake)
10. Rasheed Wallace

Great college players not in the pros:
Julius Hodge (NC State)
Cris Carrawell (Duke,based on college not in the pros)
Jay Williams (Duke)
Joe Forte (UNC, based only on college not the pros)
