If 1988 was on there, it

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.

@qDizzle32

1988:
C - Lopez
PF - Love
SF - Durant
SG - Curry
PG - Westbrook

1990:
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.

1990 class looks best, but being older than rest they probally

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

And 1993 is missing Tony

And 1993 is missing Tony Wroten. He would be the PG over Schroeder

1984

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

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

Bench:

Joe Dumars

Jeff Hornacek

Detlef Schrempf

Charles Barkley

Charles Oakley

Ofcourse 1990 looks better

Ofcourse 1990 looks better than 1993...1990 players have 3 extra years of NBA experience on the '93 guys

Very good topic suggestion, I

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 didn't

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.

On second thought

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

1963 - Jordan at SG, Olajuwon at C, Malone at PF, and throw in two others. Those three alone are elite.
