    What would the ultimate Dream Team of the ages look like?

    12 man roster plus 3 alternates

    with any player from any generation up until now. What would it look like? Defensive unit, rebounding, 3 point shooting, speed fast break unit....

    What would the ultimate Dream Team of the ages look like?

    All prime?

    Magic, j kidd, Stockton
    Michael, Kobe
    Bird, kd, pippen
    Lebron, Barkley
    Shaq, Kareem, td

    I think, keeping in mind the euro style of play, this would be a pretty well rounded roster. Having said that, there's about 1 million different ways you could go here and they would all be correct. I just happened to want to see this group.

    If I could pic a starting line-up of players in their prime it would look like this:

    PG: John Stockton
    SG: Ray Allen
    SF: Grant Hill
    PF: Tim Duncan
    C: Hakeem

    I realize that each of those players are not the best at their position, but I think in terms of ego and chemistry and fundamentals, that team would be able to beat any team you assembled with other players.

    On the bench I'd go with

    PG: Chris Paul
    SG: Reggie Miller
    SF: Larry Bird
    PF: Karl Malone
    C: Ben Wallace

    Extras
    PG: Jason Kidd
    SG: Joe Dumars
    SF: Scottie Pippen
    PF: Dennis Rodman
    C: Brad Daughter

    Starters
    Hakeem
    Duncan
    Lebron James
    Jordan
    Magic

    Bench
    Shaq
    Barkley
    Pippen
    Bird
    Bryant
    Oscar Robertson
    Bob Cousy

    Like this team. Especially the starters. Jordan is the only guy that needs to touch the ball everytime down. The rest can play solid D and be effective without the ball. Really would like to play positionless with Pippen, Bron, Magic Hakeem and Duncan. That team would run any 5 out of the building.

    People don't think about the team concept and just throw out the best players they can think of..

    Magic
    MJ
    Bird
    Duncan
    Kareem

    This is my starting lineup,excellent overall,crazy offense.Kareem is the starter because of the strong bond with Magic. Magic and MJ can run whatever offense they want,Bird is the ultimate spot up shooter,Duncan and Kareem=lot of boards and good rim protection+really good offense,but with Magic,MJ,Bird I think they can just focus on defense and boards.

    Payton
    Kobe
    Pippen
    Malone
    Hakeem

    This is my bench and has the role of the defensive unit.Pippen and Payton are among the best defenders ever,Hakeem gives you huge defense and also great offense. I put Kobe to have a scoring spark is this defensive unit and Malone is the perfect player to do pick and roll with Payton and at the same time has great defense.

    Extras:Shaq,Rodman,James,Stockton,Allen. These players weren't in the lineup,but it's a matter of preferences,they can all play(with the exception of Rodman who must play only in the defensive unit)in both unit.

    Magic-Jordan-Bird have to start.

    The only questions to me are:

    Do you play LeBron at PF (for his passing/shooting) or Duncan (for his post-play/size)?

    Which center do you prefer (Shaq/Kareem/Hakeem/etc)?

    You can't go wrong with anyone. Each player has their own way of style that would mesh well. I'm talking about the greatest players, of course.

    My ideal team

    Stockton
    Jordan
    Pippen
    Bird
    67 Wilt


    My ideal fast break team:
    Nash
    MJ
    Pippen
    Bron
    Russell

    My ideal defensive team (that can still play offense)
    GP
    MJ
    Pippen
    Duncan
    Russell/Hakeem



    These things are always more fun if we remove the top20 or so players tho

    I actually had a hard time figuring this out....because the greatest players at each position sometimes have the same strengths and demand the ball.... and sometimes you sacrifice outside shooting for putting together the best 5.

    For instance, I wondered if this starting unit would work:

    Oscar Robertson
    Jordan
    Lebron
    Hakeem
    Shaq
    or replace Shaq with Kemp to allow Kemp to guard the faster power forwards.

    I noticed how devastating 3 point shooting can be in the playoffs even if the 3 point shooter isn't one of the 20 greatest players. Glenn Rice in his prime was ridiculously money. What if you had Jordan, Reggie Miller and Glen Rice play together for a rotation.... not as a starting unit of course but the way coaches experiment with lineups to add more shooting.
