Modern-Day Equivalents of Legendary Teams

Somebody the other day introduced an interesting idea in another thread when they tried to make a modern-day equivalent of the historic 95-95 Bulls. I think they sort of botched it, but I wanted to make this thread to do the same thing with those types of legendary teams. I took players from today who are of a similar caliber and possess a similar skillset and position to the players of those teams. Or, in the case of Michael Jordan, I really had to pick Lebron because let's be honest, no one else but maybe Durant has that kind of gravitas and certainly no shooting guard.

95-96 Bulls

C - Robin Lopez (Luc Longley)

PF - Kenneth Faried (Dennis Rodman)

SF - Paul George (Scottie Pippen)

SG - CJ Miles (Ron Harper)

PG - Lebron James (Michael Jordan)

6th - Chandler Parsons (Toni Kukoc)

Marco Belinelli (Steve Kerr)

Aaron Gray (Bill Wennington)

Darrell Arthur (Dickey Simpkins)

85-86 Celtics (went 67-15)

C - Pau Gasol (Robert Parish)

PF - Lamarcus Aldridge (Kevin McHale)

SF - Kevin Durant (Larry Bird)

SG - Gerald Henderson (Danny Ainge)

PG - Alec Burks (Dennis Johnson)

6th - Jermaine O'Neal (Bill Walton)

CJ Watson (Jerry Sichting)

Jeff Taylor (Scott Wedman)

Neither was Dennis Johnson,

Neither was Dennis Johnson, really. That team had two combo guards and no true point guards.

To me the only guy that could

To me the only guy that could be Bird is Nowitzki. As for Magic it would have to LeBron.
