    Greatest 8 man team....

    Rules:

    Excluding Michael Jordan.....Name 8 players that would take on any team in any time,any place,any universe and win....No Mike Jordan.


    MY STARTING 5:

    PG = Magic Johson
    SG = Kobe Bryant
    SF = Lebron James
    PF = Kevin Garnett
    C = Hakeem Olajuwon


    MY 3 BENCH PLAYERS:

    C = Shaquille O'Neal
    PF = Tim Duncan
    PG = Isiah Thomas



    Whats your all time greatest 8 player NBA team that you would put against the grim reaper if you had to coach a team against him.....Or if you had to coach against some other human race on another plant who knew what basketball was and wanted to challenge Earth????

    magic
    kobe
    bird
    duncan
    russell

    stockton
    kg
    lebron

    no shaq only because free throws, even though could argue the same for duncan. the starting 5 would be clutch with russell anchoring some great d and grabbing the boards. stockton and magic wouldnt have to score much and could just drop dimes. great offense and defense all around with a lot of unselfish players.

    The no MG rule is ridiculous

    PG: Oscar Robertson
    SG: Jerry West
    SF: Larry Bird
    PF/C: Bill Russell
    PF/C: Hakeem Olajuwon

    Bench:
    SG: Reggie Miller
    SF/PF: Dennis Rodman
    C: Wilt Chamberlain

    Three best available clutch players of all time (Bird, Miller, West). It's a little ridiculous to have Wilt coming off the bench but I love me some Hakeem.

    PG- Magic
    SG- Oscar Robinson
    SF- Kobe Bryant
    PF- Larry Legend Bird
    C- Shaq O'Neil

    Bench
    Reggie Miller SG
    Bill Russell PF/C
    Lebron James SG/SF/PF

    I have Miller to come off the bench to shoot 3's late in the game, LBJ as a scorer off the bench. And Russel as a defensive/ boarding specialist.
    The reason LBJ isn't starting is because his game is not complimented by Shaq's game.

    Interesting ancient thread, some of these teams have too many centers...

    I assume they could be playing vs 12 man teams so we need athletic guys that can do more things than the average excellent player. All great defenders except Bird who was a fine anticipation defender (passes), but not a good one on one.

    Hakeem - 5
    McHale - 4, 3, 5
    KG - 4, 5
    Bird 3, 4
    Lebron 3, 4, 2
    Curry 1
    Glove 1, 2
    Kobe 2

    omissions:

    Duncan - McHale and KG both better defenders against more types of players
    Russell - would be a total bust vs players of mid 80's or beyond, a horrific offensive player in an all time sense
    Mikan - ^ times 5
    Laimbeer - ???? please
    Maravich - great college player, vastly overrated in the pros


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    told you all since 2010 he was a toolbag.....
