Memphis by a hair, but it's close. Brooklyn dominates the back court while the Grizzlies would handle Lopez and Hump on offense. It would then come down to Gay vs Wallace and while IMO Wallace is better than many think around here he is not better than Gay.
So in result Memphis would win that starting 5 challenge.
Keep in mind I am a Nets fan.

Interesting Responses. I'd fave to agree with Memphis being better tho... Conley and allen are both really good also
nets, lopez has been outplaying gasol so far.
Talent-wise on paper, it's the Nets. But Memphis has the more balanced, and therefore, better overall starting five.
Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.
Right now I would take the Grizzlies because there chemistry on the floor together is amazing, since they have been together a while. Once the Nets new 5 get more used to each other(Lopez hurt almost all last year, Wallace was only a Net for 2 weeks, Johnson was a Hawk) I take the Nets starting 5.
Right now, the Memphis 5 might be the best in the NBA. At least they are playing like it

Well Brook Lopez is >>>>>>>> Hakeem so clearly its the Nets starting lineup.
