    What If Every NBA Player Played For Their Hometown?

    An interesting article I found about what if everyone pulled a LeBron and decided to play for their hometown(state) teams. Some are pretty good, while others may be the worst starting lineups ever!

    After LeBron James decided he would be heading back to Cleveland, the internet started churning out possible starting 5s if every player in the league returned to their hometown. Some squads were complete garbage, while others were STACKED.

    The Washington Wizards would boast a formidable lineup that includes Carmelo Anthony (Baltimore), Kevin Durant, Rudy Gay, and Ty Lawson (and Roy Hibbert). The New York Knicks were re-imagined with a frontcourt that consists of Joakim Noah and Andre Drummond, while Kemba Walker runs the point.

    No team could form a better back court then... Charlotte. The Hornets lineup, if NBA players all returned home, would feature Chris Paul, John Wall, and Stephen Curry.

    Check out some of the better starting 5s in the photos, and check out the full list of NBA squads here.

    So is your team better or worse if all the hometown kids came back to play for your team?
    I would adjust the Pistons lineup a tad bit from their list, but they would still probably suck.

    Lakers/Clippers are pretty insane. I think Orlando and Dallas also had sick squads.

    The NBA would be awesome if that happened, Chicago would be the best with LA second. I think Toronto should have been included in that poll though.

    Is this all time or just current players? Either way Dallas would be loaded with big men.

    Bosh, Aldridge, Kurt Thomas, Dennis Rodman, and Larry Johnson all grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Grant Hill spent part of his youth in Dallas too while his dad was playing for the Cowboys.

    The Suns have players I never heard of on it. We'd have far and away the worst team in the league. Like...possibly an 0-82 season bad.

    EDIT: Minny would be even worse. But Suns are up there too.

    amazingly, my Wolves would suck even worse...

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Toronto has to be one of top talent producers today. What city is pumping out that much right now? There is a lot more on the way too.
