    Dream Team A 1985-1999 v. Dream Team B 2000-2014, who wins?

    If you could feature players from 1985-1999 vs. a Dream team featuring players from 2000-2014, who wins and who would most likely make those teams?

    So just putting a team out there that would be close to a hypothetical dream team (apologies if I missed someone big, this is pretty much off the top of my head)

    85-99

    Magic/Thomas/Stockton
    Jordan/Drexler/Miller
    Bird/Pippen/Wilkins
    Barkley/Malone/Mchale
    Hakeem/Robinson/Ewing

    00-14

    Kidd/Paul/Nash
    Kobe/Wade/Allen (or Iverson)
    Lebron/Durant/ Pierce (or Carmelo)
    Duncan/Garnett/Dirk
    Yao/Wallace/Dwight


    I'd probably pick A. As much as I love the contrast of some of the players at the positions on team B, I just can see Akeem shutting down Yao, and Robinson/Ewing able to break through the defense of Wallace and Dwight.

    I also left Shaq out as his prime years were essentially even between the two eras (from like 95-05) lol

    No Tmac, that's terrible. Tmac is probably #2 after Kobe.

    Easy question. The 1992 dream team alone will beat any construction you can put together of 2000-2014.

    well i think prime hakeem was better than like a 96 shaq. so all you have to do is add shaq to the 00+ team
    also due to match ups i would make the lineup look more like this.

    magic/stockton
    jordan/Drexler/Miller
    Bird/Pippen/Wilkins
    Barkley/Malone/Mchale
    Hakeem/Robinson/Ewing

    vs

    lebron/paul/iverson
    kobe/wade/allen
    durant/t-mac/melo
    duncan/kg/dirk
    shaq/yao

    HM. webber, pierce, carter, Kidd

    I personally think this team is better than 85-99

    that sounds pretty dumb to me but hey its your opinion.

    i would think a team 0f anywhere from 00-14 lebron, kobe, durant, shaq, duncan, kg, wade, tmac would be way better than the 92 dream team. especially since u have to consider each of those dream team players as good as they were in they 92 season.
    hell, i would take a starting lineup of lebron, kobe, durant, duncan and shaq over the 92 starting lineup

    Stern is the new Mcmahon

    Also, lol did you really put Iverson, Carmelo and Yao over guys like Nash, Kidd, Gasol? Those 3 are guaranteed top 50 players.

    No lol lets not forget who the best player on that 08 redeem team was.

    Wade/Kidd/Paul
    Kobe/Allen/Iverson or T-Mac
    LeBron/Durant/Melo
    Duncan/Garnett/Bosh
    Shaq/Dwight/Davis

    I'll take this team over the Dream Team.

    There are too many chiefs and not enough soldiers.... all of those listed are primary scorers, but where are the shooters? It's also about the talent fitting each other.

    Is this making teams based on players from those eras, or based off of players that were on the "dream team" during those eras?
