    Best All-Time Team:All Players in Their Primes

    Taking into account best all-time teams (or perhaps not), which teams represents the best all-time team with each player in their prime at the same time. What is the best team you can think of?

    FIrst teams that come to mind are '04 Lakers with Shaq/Kobe/Malone/GP; '05 Heat Wade/Shaq/WC/GP/Mourning, etc.; 70's Lakers with Wilt, West, Baylor; Showtime Lakers- Magic/Worthy/Kareem; 2017 Dubs- KD/Steph/Klay/Draymond. 1996 Bulls- Jordan/Pippen/Rodman/Parrish, etc.; many, many more

    Which is the best team, if all players on a team at one point were in their prime, that you can come up with?

    I think it's pretty easily that Lakers team. First ballot HOF guys at 4 positions with excellent D and all the scoring you could handle. Malone was a good enough shooter to space things for Shaq and both of the big men were excellent passers.

    Considering basketball is a team game that depends on cohesion, it's still the Warriors. You get Iguodala and West in their primes, Livingston before the knee injury and the all-NBA defense of Draymond, along with the unrivaled shooting of Curry, Thompson and Durant. No random assortment of all-stars from the hero ball era is beating that.
    I do, however, like my 2000-01 All-Prime Blazers (even though that idiot Bob Whitsitt traded Jermaine):
    PG: Strickland, Stoudemire, Grant
    SG: Smith, Wells
    SF: Pippen, Schrempf
    PF: Wallace, Kemp
    C: Sabonis, Dale Davis, Purdue
    They've got a lot of big men, so some talented guys have to come off the bench. I could go either way on Wallace or Kemp starting. But imagine prime Sabonis I'm talking mid-20s, not early 30s dominating the NBA.

    I'm quite confused. Admittedly the wording in the OP was tough to follow but I though we were talking about real teams, just imagining that all the players on it were at their peaks at the time they were assembled into 1 unit.

    I don't actually have an opinion on this at the moment, just thought it seemed like it had gotten away from that.

    Some consideration should be given to the 1985 Philadelphia 76ers, who had Maurice Cheeks, Andrew Toney, Dr. J, Bobby Jones Moses Malone and Charles Barkley.

    right. Are we talking about a specific team, like the 1982 Lakers? Or the 2004 Lakers? Or are we just assembling a team with any player that ever played for them like an all star roster?

    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.

    The wording makes me think "all players on a team at the same time"... So Barry wouldn't be able to do his underhand free throws with Curry and Durant.

    I might have to go with the Lakers... but the Bulls team with Parish would be quite good too...

    I have to agree that Blazers squad is nasty
