    I think the 2010-11 Celtics gotta be up there

    One of the most underrated teams of all time when healthy. When Shaq was on the floor they were just so perfectly balanced.

    What about the 2013 Knicks?

    Kidd
    J.R Smith (lol)
    Anthony
    Stoudemire - K-Mart
    Camby - Chandler

    Not too shabby but I guess that Smith at SG kinda kills it lol

    Bulls 96-96

    Ron Harper-Michael Jordan-Scottie Pippen-Dennis Rodman-Robet Parish

    Crazy *** defense, throw in Parish and his well rounded game, I don't see how you stopping this triangle.

    They have 3 point specialists off the Bench.

    Harper was a 20PPg in his prime, but he'll probably get less touches. Parish could score too. Offense is more then enough. Kukoc off the Bench. with Kerr and Judd for 3's. A bunch of bigs to hack people.

    Smith isn't too bad, as he is a shooter they need for spacing. Under Jason Kidd's leadership, I think guys will tow the line and listen to his orders. Kidd knew how to get guys to buy in.

    Both of these squads can very well challenge for the best team.

    The Celtics probably have the best collection of bigs ever with that team. Defense is nasty too.

    The Spurs have well rounded team with ball handlers everywhere. I have a big bias toward any team with Duncan.

    For all confused, the OP was saying best team that actually played together had they been in their prime.. '04 lakers is a good example with kobe shaq malone and Payton ( both Payton and malone were past their prime but the scenario OP is giving is if they were actually in their prime while on that same team).

    I think the current Cavs is a good one..

    Isaiah thomas
    Derrick rose
    Dwyane wade
    Lebron
    Kevin love
    Jr smith
    Jeff green

    All of these guys in their prime scored 18+ Ppg and several (5 of them) actually scored 25+ ppg.. Then you also have guys like korver who in his prime shot over 50% from 3point range and Jose Calderon who was a very good playmaker in his prime and averaged close to a double double.

    Also OKC from like 5 years ago when they had Westbrook, Durant, and harden. That's 3 of the last 5 mvps right there (if harden wins this year)

    They are right up there offensively. Defense is still suspect though.

    Yeah I did not account for Kidd's leadership, but my gosh Smith is such a head case that I think they'd butt heads more than once

    I came in here specifically to mention this Philly team with baby Barkley and ancient Dr. J. That squad would have been a monster with those guys in their peaks. That would be the greatest rebounding front court in the history of the league. Obviously those Lakers teams with past-their-prime versions of Payton and Malone would be ridiculous as well.

    But everyone is throwing out homer picks, so I'll throw out two late 90s Rockets squads:

    97-98
    PG Matt Maloney / Brent Price (PG is a major weakness on both teams)
    SG Clyde Drexler
    SF Eddie Johnson / Mario Ellie
    PF Charles Barkley
    C Hakeem Olajuwon / Kevin Willis


    This team was already damn good and was likely one unfortunate John Stockton 3-pointer away from facing Jordan's Bulls in the Finals. But getting Hakeem, Barkley and Drexler all at their peaks and adding in really solid guys who were ancient at this point in Eddie Johnson and Kevin Willis would make them ridiculous.

    98-99
    PG Michael Dickerson
    SG Cuttino Mobley
    SF Scottie Pippen / Eddie Johnson
    PF Charles Barkley / Antoine Carr
    C Hakeem Olajuwon


    This team loses peak Drexler and Willis, but adds peak Pippen as well as Dickerson, Mobley and Carr, who all had a few sneaky good seasons in their careers. While I loathed Pippen in his time in Houston, I actually think this team would be slightly better than the 97-98 peak squad thanks to Pippen's defense and distribution skills as well as the additions of some excellent shooters in Dickerson and Mobley.

    I think the 1999 Lakers deserve some love (even if they aren't quite as good as their 2004 counterparts):

    Shaq
    Kobe
    Glen Rice
    Eddie Jones
    Derek Harper
    Dennis Rodman

    The 2012 Mavericks have quite a few stars as well.
    Dirk Nowitzki
    Jason Kidd
    Vince Carter
    Shawn Marion
    Lamar Odom
    Jason Terry

    The 2008 Suns are fairly ridiculous too:
    Shaq
    Nash
    Amare
    Shawn Marion
    Grant Hill

    There's also two variants of the Heat you could use that would be fairly good:

    2007 Heat:
    Shaq
    Wade
    Alonzo Mourning
    Gary Payton
    Eddie Jones

    2008 Heat;
    Shaq
    Wade
    Alonzo Mourning
    Penny Hardaway
    Shawn Marion

    Both the Magic Lakers and Bird Celtics add an MVP Center to their teams:

    1984 Lakers:
    Magic
    Kareem
    Worthy
    Bob McAdoo
    Jamal Wilkes
    Byron Scott
    Michael Cooper

    1986 Celtics:
    Bird
    McHale
    Parish
    Bill Walton
    Dennis Johnson
    Danny Ainge

    Also, the 1997 Phoenix Suns would have the best PG rotation of all-time lol:
    Steve Nash
    Jason Kidd
    Kevin Johnson
    Sam Cassell

    One of my favorites 12-13 Clippers

    Cp3-Bledsoe
    Billups-J. Crawford
    Grant Hill-C. Butler-M. Barnes
    Odom-BG
    DeAndre -Turiaf

    I'm starting Odom over Blake for spacing and defensive purposes. Starting defense is damn good. The Bench can score with anyone with BG, Crawford, Bledsoe and co.

    A small ball lineup with BG instead of DJ, would be one of the best passing teams ever.
