Your perfect team, all-time all eras...
Obviously your starting five really is, if you think about it, the guy you think is the best at each position all-time:
1 - John Stockton
2 - MJ
3 - Lebron
4 - Duncan
5 - Dream
on the bench I got:
6 - Magic
7 - Tiny Archibald
8 - Jerry West
9 - Ray Allen
10 - Larry Bird
11 - Barkley
12 - Wilt
I don't even know where to begin.
Iverson (when he was in his prime, i really think id take him over most of these guys)
Durant (i know its early to put him down, but he hasnt even reached his prime yet. so i do believe he will go down as one of the best EVER)
really tough, i know i left alot of the best ever off...
whose team wins (mine or Hans David)
Like the question man, done this multiple times on 2k lol
SF: Bird (Lebron isn't there yet for me)
PF: KG (Give me KG in his prime all day, erry day)
C: Hakeem The Dream
6th man: Kobe
G: John Stockton
F: George Gervin
PF: Chris Webber (I just love the dude's game back in the early 2000's)
This post would've been alot of FUN!! But i just had to give you a NEG for having Magic coming off the bench!!!
6th Man: Dr.J
rudeboy's starting five is probably the best talent you can put together.
something like this is scary...
BENCH: (all the size you want)
this team would kill any1
Jordan (for emergencies)
FINALLY! someone includes Oscar Robertson - arguably the best player ever...
The other teams are just embarassing without him.
PG - John Stockton - Magic was more dynamic, but Stockton is a far superior defender and when you see the rest of my lineup, a 20 + ppg scorer isn't necessary
SG - Michael Jordan - G.O.A.T. both sides of the ball, oft forgotten, he averaed 2.7+ spg 6 seasons in his career.
SF - Scottie Pippen - I'm going defense heavy, and again, Scottie was the best compliment to Jordan as anyone could ask for.
PF - Kevin Garnettt - My favorite player of the early 2000's and possibly the most versitile I've ever seen. 24/14/5/1.5/2.2 in his MVP season, seriously?
C - Wilt Chamberlain - Possibly the most athletic player for his size in NBA history, Chamberlain may have not been skilled by today's standards, but would be a force blocking shots and gathering attention down low. I think by today's standards, he'd be a lot like Dwight Howard, but bigger, more athletic and more productive. I think Wilt would be a 25 ppg 16 rpg 4 bpg player in todays game.
Larry Bird - With Chamberlain down low, Bird would be a knockdown shooter from downtown and a guy who can continue with my tough nosed defensive mindset coming off the bench.
Hakeem Olajuwon - Hakeem would be my backup to provide a more skilled offensive approach down low and a guy who can shoot the ball and hit free throws down the stretch in close games and give a different look on the block.
Jason Kidd - I'm choosing Jason Kidd for my backup PG. I'm not looking to my PG to score, but to distribute and play tough defense, and in Kidd's case, he's a constant triple double threat and the best rebounding PG I've ever seen.
Clyde Drexler - One thing I loved about the Dream Team was the Drexler/Pippen/Jordan combo, all three have averaged 7 rpg 7 apg at least once in their career and give this team immense athletic ability and versitility on the wings.
Dennis Rodman - I'm going with the Worm as my backup PF, he's a specialist and could haul in rebounds like no one else in his generation. He won't score a lot, but if he didn't need to on the late 90's Bulls, he certainly won't on this roster.
Ray Allen - I'm going with another sharp shooter and a guy who is a bit of a specialist although being strong in other areas of his game. With Wilt and Hakeem on the same team, why not add another one of the best 3 point shooters of All-Time?
Lock for a perfect team.
Elite rebounder, Elite defender, Hard Worker with no problem coming of the bench. Alot of the Superstars you listed for your bench play wouldn't be able to accept that role.
Plus he sells tickets, makes headlines, and lives a very interesting off the court life.
forgot wilt, dude was monster.
i think my team would win against any team put together so far imho. a backcourt and SF of lebron, kobe, and mj would too much for teams to handle.
I would have to go with players I know of
C- Shaquille O Neal (Shaq)
PF- Kevin Garnett (KG)
SF- Lebron James (Bron)
SG- Michael Jordan (MJ)
PG- John Stockton
C- Bill Lambeer - wanted a 3 point shooter off the bench
PF- Dennis Rodman- nasty rebounder
SF- Kevin Durant
SG- Ray Allen
PG- Chris Paul
PF- Larry Bird
PG- Magic Johnson (wanted a bench guy who could play any position)
so what do you think of my perfect 12.
my team would dominate do not need those little punk ass guards
C-Sabonis (Soviet superstar version)
PG- Magic- Best PG of all time, scoring, rebounding, passing, nothing more you could ask for
SG- MJ- The undisputed GOAT in my opinion, just an absolute killer
SF- Larry Legend- Great shooter, underated distributor, could really board with the big boys as well.
PF- Timmy- KG gets a lot of credit or being an amazing defender but Timmy in my opinion was every bit as good a rim protecter as KG during their primes. Plus he has a post game like no one else, a true professional and an underated passer as well, he averaged 5 dimes per game for a season or two in his prime, great operating out of the double teams.
C- Kareem- Another great post player, could score at ease, the most unblockable shot of all time, a great all-around player and also could rack up the assists even as a big, 5 apg in a season at one time.
6. Kobe- Top 10 player of all time, could move up when all is said and done, has one of the best midrange games we've ever seen, the only guy other than Jordan that has that look like he's gonna kill you when he walks on the floor.........and Kendrick Perkins as well, lol.
7. Shaq- The most unstopable force in the league for over a decade, no one could stop him, he just bulldozed through defenders, a big man's worst nightmare, oculd take over a game at ease
8. Hakeem- It's ridiculous how skilled he was, he makes one pivot and he has like 15-30 options of what to do next, and he was a menace on the defensive end as well.
9. The big O- All-Around play from a guy from way back in the NBA's baby days, only guy to ever average a triple double for an entire season, has to count for somthing.
10. Bill Russell- 11 time champion, one of the best defenders of all time, might not be a very good offensive player by today's standards, but still a champion and bruiser off the bench.
11. Lebron- Nothing needs to be said about the reigning MVP, NBA Champion, Finals MVP, and Gold medalist, going to be top 10 player at the very least when all is said and done, all around player who can legitly play 4 positions at an elite level, and even center at times in today's NBA
12. Steve Kerr- My theory is that when you already have 11 HOFers or Future HOFers, why would you stash another legend on the bench? Otehr than Larry Legend, there isn't a reliable or consistent three point threat on this team, Kerr is one of the greatest shooters of All-Time, and although he didn't launch 7 threes a game like some chuckers do these days, he's still a deadly sniper who could provide value to this team.
