Which one do you think has the brightest future and has the best chance to be successful? Which line up looks the best to you? Please discuss!
My choice would have to be the class of 1990.
If 1988 was on there, it wouldn't even be a question.
Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Derrick Rose, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, Brook Lopez the list goes on.
C - Lopez
PF - Love
SF - Durant
SG - Curry
PG - Westbrook
C - Cousins
PF - Monroe
SF - George
SG - Thompson
PG - Lillard
Damn... That would be a good match. I would give the edge to 1988 but I feel it could go both ways.
should and you know what your getting from them, 93' though looks like it "could" blow past the others. 91' &92', other than Kyrie,looks like decent starters/ high quality role players
I'd take '90 over '93 any day of the week
And 1993 is missing Tony Wroten. He would be the PG over Schroeder
If you added 1984 you would have a stacked team. In my opinion would be better than any listed
C - Bogut and Gortat
PF - Melo & Bosh
SF - Lebron & Iguodala
Sg - JJ Redick & Thabo Sefolosha
PG - Deron Williams & Nate Robinson
1985 would be pretty sick too, it's just loaded with big men.
PG Chris Paul/Sebastien Telfair
SG Monta Ellis/Arron Afflalo
SF Luol Deng/Jared Dudley
PF LeMarcus Aldridge/Josh Smith
C Dwight Howard/Marc Gasol
Joakim Noah, Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, Andrea Bargnani, Taj Gibson and Tiago Splitter don't even make the team
And my choice for best birth year of all time: 1963
PG Terry Porter
SG Michael Jordan
SF Chris Mullin
PF Karl Malone
C Hakeem Olajuwon
Ofcourse 1990 looks better than 1993...1990 players have 3 extra years of NBA experience on the '93 guys
Even if you look 5 years down the road... I would still take 1990
has potentially 8 allstarst,and Henson could be DPOY candidate in few years
Very good topic suggestion, I guess that 1984 is the prime year if we look at players at their peaks when considering which year was the best. A few years back, 1976 would have been awesome with Tim Duncan and KD as the backcourt and Antwan Jamison and Chanuncy Billups to name a couple also on the team.
1963 is another year that springs to mind with Hakeem and MJ as the obvious ones. There would have been some strong years from 1972 to 1976 ( as I mentioned above) based around Shaq, Jason Kidd and the loaded 1996 draft also.
You just plain didn't go back far enough.....Should've went from the mid 80s till about 1990.......them younger 90s babies just plain haven't cooked enough yet.
You did say brightest FUTURE.......so I see your point....I think 93 has the brightest future....1990 is the best now obviously...
1963 - Jordan at SG, Olajuwon at C, Malone at PF, and throw in two others. Those three alone are elite.
Come on 1991 ya gotta step it up! That class seems like the fringe star/amazing role player class...
