    Best all time teams, strictly team draft picks

    Which team can say they have drafted the best all time team (disregarding their length of time on that team)

    For reference you can click the link and find a team under Franchise Draft History
    https://www.basketball-reference.com/draft/

    Obviously the teams who have been around the longest will have the best teams, but it could get interesting

    For fun I did Miami who has sucked drafting historically:

    Sherman Douglas/Eddie House
    Dwyane Wade/Steve Smith
    Glen Rice/Rasual & Caron Butler
    Grant Long/Michael Beasley
    Rony Seikaly/Kurt Thomas

    I'm going to do two, because this could be somewhat interesting:

    Overall for the Sixers:
    PG - Hal Greer - Maurice Cheeks - Lou Williams
    SG - Andrew Toney - Allen Iverson - Doug Collins - World B. Free
    SF - Billy Cunningham - Andre Iguodala - Jerry Stackhouse
    PF - Charles Barkley - Clarence Weatherspoon - George McGinnis
    C - Darryl Dawkins - Joel Embiid - Luke Jackson

    Man....that team can play fast, slow, would find a way to spread them out some with shooting. I actually really would like to see that. And that Bench Unit would finally be something to make AI look much better.

    So my fun one, Process Only players:
    Ben Simmons - TJ McConnell (Undrafted FA so I'm counting him) - Pierre Jackson
    Timothe Luwawu Cabbarot - Markelle Fultz - Glen Rice (Weak Point)
    Furkan Korkmaz - KJ McDaniels - JP Tokoto
    Jerami Grant - Richaun Holmes - Jonah Bolden (Seriously look him up)
    Joel Embiid - Willy Hernangomez - Jahlil Okafor

    It's got it's spots, but it's also got it's blahs.

    Houston's all-time teams are notoriously stacked in the front court and weak in the back court, and this is especially obvious in this exercise. I cheated a little bit here because they drafted so many talented centers and forwards and so few quality guards.

    PG Calvin Murphy / Sam Cassell
    SG Richard Jefferson / Cuttino Mobley
    SF Robert Horry / Rudy Tomjanovich / Rudy Gay
    PF Hakeem Olajuwon / Ralph Sampson / Bobby Jones (who I didn't know they drafted)
    C Yao Ming / Elvin Hayes

    The Bucks are probably the best all-time:

    • PG: Stephon Marbury, Sidney Moncrief
    • SG: Alex English, Michael Redd
    • SF: Julius Erving, Bob Dandridge
    • PF: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Dirk Nowitzki
    • C: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Andrew Bogut

    My Blazers are pretty pathetic, considering how many all-time guys they passed on:

    • PG: Damian Lillard, Terry Porter
    • SG: Clyde Drexler, Fat Lever
    • SF: Jerome Kersey, Clifford Robinson
    • PF: Zach Randolph, Sidney Wicks
    • C: Bill Walton, Jermaine O'Neal

    You’d have Giannis starting over Dirk?

    Yep. It was a tough choice, but someone had to come off the bench. I also thought about slotting Giannis in at point guard, a la Ben Simmons.

    Damn; looking at Golden State, I think they might have the best all-draftee team — a deep, killer small-ball roster around some all-time centers:

    • PG: Stephen Curry, Tim Hardaway, Gilbert Arenas
    • SG: Vince Carter, Klay Thompson, Monta Ellis
    • SF: Anfernee Hardaway, Rick Barry, Latrell Sprewell
    • PF: Draymond Green, Chris Mullin
    • C: Wilt Chamberlain, Robert Parrish

    I'm looking through some others and this might give a run for the money:
    PG Chauncey Billups - Sam Jones - Jo Jo White
    SG Frank Ramsey - Danny Ainge - John Havlicek
    SF Larry Bird - Paul Pierce - Cliff Hagan
    PF Kevin McHale - Tom Heinsohn - Antoine Walker
    C Chuck Share - Dave Cowens - Al Jefferson

    This team isn't all that old but:
    PG Victor Oladipo - Keyon Dooling
    SG JJ Redick - Courtney Lee - Nick Anderson
    SF Dennis Scott - Matt Harpring - Mike Miller
    PF Chris Webber - Anderson Varejao - Dario Saric
    C Shaquille O'Neal - Dwight Howard - Zaza Pachulia

    PG spot is really weak, in fact they've never drafted a pure PG. But that depth at the 3-4 would kill most teams...and then theres Dwight, Shaq, Webber. Zing, a Zaza is dirty joke.

    And the Knicks have an interesting history:
    PG Walt Frazier - Mark Jackson - Rod Strickland
    SG Richie Guerin - Dick Van Arsdale - Mike Woodson
    SF Bill Bradley - Cazzie Russell - Gerald Wilkins
    PF Dolph Schayes - Kurt Rambis - Kristaps Prozingis
    C Patrick Ewing - Willis Reed - Nene Hilario

    Shaq would dominate anyone, but I can't see any of those teams remotely hanging with Golden State. They can bury any team with threes, and Chamberlain's about the closest you'll get to Shaq's physical dominance.
