^I second that question

Here's my list.

C - Al Horford $4.3M/Brook Lopez $2.3M/Dikembe Mutombo $0.8M
PF – Chris Bosh $15.8M /David Lee $2.7M/Robin Lopez $1.7M
SF – Lebron James $15.8M/Jamario Moon $0.7M
SG –Anthony Parker $4.5M/Rudy Gay $3.3M
PG – Chris Paul $13.7M/Rajon Rondo $2.6M/Rodney Stuckey $1.8M



Total - $70M. .

If I used this year's salaries it would have been a lot less. But I thought using Chris Paul's rookie contract salary would have been dumb.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Also, I think he may have gotten Tim Thomas mixed up with Kurt Thomas? Cut him some slack...

C: Tyson Chandler $10'950'000 /
PF: Tim Duncan $20'598'703 / Josh Powell $854'957
SF: Shane Battier $6'373'900 / Trevor Ariza $2'911'600
SG: Rip Hamilton $10'562'500 / Nick Young $1'602'960
PG: Deron Williams $5'069'448 /

I couldn't think of anybody for the back up PG and C spots. But you can make a decent 3-man rotation at the PG/SG and PF/C spots. There's about $11'000'000 left.

That line-up could stop anybody, and has decent offense as well. Young, Ariza and Powell can provide good energy off the bench.

PG - Chris Paul $4.6, Rajon Rondo $1.3

Total = $69.76M

My team's starting line-up consists of great defensive players at every position, and they can also score. They could defend your team. Obviously Battier and Rip wouldn't completely be able to stop LeBron and Wade, but they're talented enough defenders to make scoring very difficult for them.

Also, did you consider chemistry? Your team is great on paper, but Paul, Wade and LBJ all run offenses where the ball runs through their hands on every possesion. Chris Paul's game is centered around dribbling the ball and finding the open man. Well it's going to be difficult for him to do that if all four of his team-mates are in the paint. Not very hard to stop a team when all the players are in the same place.

LBJ and Wade can't spot up, their not consistent enough shooters from range. To create a great offensive team, you actually do need to consider more than who scores the most points. Never under-estimate how much difference spacing makes.


thats a good team for now. but those contracts arent gonna be that low after this year n the next

This is also something I considered. Your bench has more great players than mine, but all the guys on yours are going to be commanding giant salaries over the next couple of years. My current line-up will go over the salary cap over the next couple of years, but not anywhere close to how much Dantheman's will.


With only using two rookie-scale contracts:

PG: Deron Williams($13,785,000) - Delonte West($3,850,000) - Mardy Collins($950,000)

CE: Marcus Camby($8,000,000) - Brook Lopez($2,098,560)

Have fun stopping that pick and roll, or scoring inside the paint.

Again, this is something I considered with my line-up. The Deron-to-Duncan offense would be very potent, then you have Rip running around screens and Shane Battier camping out on the three point line. Chandler isn't an offensive threat, but if he's left open when his man rotates to help on Duncan, you've seen what he can do with easy lobs.

Rafer was my redraft point guard so I had to defend him for about a month but now that it's over I'll admit he's really not that good of a player. I tried pretty hard to get a point guard upgrade, he's a shoot first point guard who really isn't a great shooter. He belongs nowhere near any dream team without the words "street ball" in front of it. For those of you who don't know he was a street ball legend.

We basically got carbon-copy squads. And nah, I didn't even look at anyones previous picks before doing it, just thought a Duncan/Camby front court would be sick, Battier plays the Bowen role.

To those putting three stars on your team, can you guys at least be somewhat realistic? I could do that too if I wanted, and still build a superior team to yours.

With Ease. Really? My team is still far superior to yours.
We'll start at the top:
PG: Chris Paul > Deron Williams (Don't even try to dispute this b/c you will embarrass yourself)
SG: Dwayne Wade > Brandon Roy (Once again don't bother disputing this one is even more lopsided)
SF: Lebron = Lebron (If you dispute this one you may want to go back to school)
PF: Al Jefferson < Tim Duncan (I'm not disputing this, you clearly have the edge here but not by as much as you think)
C: Dwight Howard = Dwight Howard

Now the backups:
PG: Rondo > Chalmers (Anyone would agree with me here)
SG: Roy > Mayo (Not even close, you admit as much b/c Roy is your starter)
SF: Granger = Granger
PF: Milsap > Powell (Once again not even close)
C: Bynum = Bynum

So yeah...um...yeah...wow...you must feel really embarrassed because my team would completely and utterly destroy your team. You have the advantage at one position in Tim Duncan but its actually kind of close, so no your team is not better than mine. It's not even close. Thanks for trying though. :bow:

The Celtics situation is A LOT different. The 3 stars the Celtics have are all different players. KG is the big man and emotional leader of the team. Ray Ray stretches the d for KG down low. And Pierce is an all around scorer. Each of these 3 compliment each-others games perfectly. Its a lot different then just 3 of the best players in the NBA who need the ball in their hands for their teams to be successful.

Exactly. It will be difficult for Chris Paul to find the open man if all four of his team mates are in the paint. The fast break will be deadly, but what do they do against a team with the ability to slow them down to a half court game?

It worked in the olympics because Kobe and 'Melo have the shooting touch. Wade and LeBron aren't consistent enough shooters, and Dwight and Jefferson are post players.

As undervalued as they are by some people, you really can't win without solid role players.

Throw in the fact that those guys are getting up there in age, while CP, Wade, Bron, Al, Dwight, Roy, Granger and Bynum are still young and probably won't accept a backup role, speaking of the latter 3.
