Im confused, can we pick other players besides the five that follow the criteria?

Here is mine with other players in addition to the 5 in the criteria.

PG: Derrick Rose (2008 First round pick)
SG: Monte Ellis
SF: Gerald Wallace (Starter who is not an allstar)
PF: David Lee
C: Dwight Howard (All star who has never made finals)

Maggette off the bench

pg Ramon Sessions(3)/Mario Chalmers
sg Kevin Martin(4)/Daniel Gibson
sf Beasley(2)/Steve Novak/Carl Landry
pf Paul Millsap(5)/Glen Davis/Leon Powe
C Dwight Howard(1)/Marc Gasol

Pretty weak at the SF position.. my bench is all 2nd rounders from 2006-2008... PF/C is pretty strong.. and there is a decent guard rotation.

Can anyone think of a better option at SF that is a 2nd round pick from 06-08? Eventually I think Ewing JR. can take a spot...

1) PG-Chris Paul
5) SG-Manu Ginobli
4) SF-Andre Iguodala
3) PF-Paul Millsap
2) C-Brook Lopez

Probably not the most talented team I could come up with, but I think that this team would fit together really well. I got the one of the best if not the best PG's in the game to run the show. Manu spreads the floor and provides 3 point shooting. Iggy can be CP3's running mate on the fast break and catch lobs. Millsap provides toughness down low and can really clean the glass. Brook Lopez is a big body who is an ok shotblocker and provides good size on the front line.

It's pretty close between you both...but Carmello on Ginoboli would be abuse...I know Manu can play g/f...but I dont think he can play carmello one on one...
So with Aldridge Milsap Carmello then JR and Rose....the first 4 is all defense...plus there all capable scorers...its a well rounded team

Dwight would abuse Aldridge so it balances out with Carmelo abusing Ginobli

Raps18-19 Champ
04-06-2009, 08:11 PM
HAHA...I'll take J.R. over Mayo anyday.....Mayo averages 37.9 Minutes per game while J.R. averages 27.8 Minutes per game, and J.R. is just below him in stats....If J.R. was averaging 37.9, he would abuse Mayo aswell.

And Dwight against Aldgridge really wouldn't be as bad as putting Ginobli on Melo....Because ALdridge could hold his own and is young enough to hang with Dwight with starter minutes, while Ginobli would get fatigued playing starter minutes against a 24 year old Melo.

Yao and Shaq are the 2 and 3 best centers in the league right now and they can't even hold Dwight Howard. Aldridge would look like a stick trying to stop Howard.

Mayo has harder players guarding him than J.R Smith. Even if Smith is better than Mayo, you only have Carmelo who is even considered a star while I have Deron Williams and Dwight Howard.

Deron Williams is a starter who technically isn't an All-star player because he has never played in an All-star game.

04-06-2009, 08:27 PM
G- Derrick Rose (1st rounder) 16.6ppg, 6.2 apg, 3.9rpg
G- Manu Ginobili (6th man) 15.5ppg, 4.5rpg, 3.6apg, 1.5spg
F- Paul Millsap (2nd rounder) 14ppg, 9rpg, 53% fg%
F- Troy Murphy (Starter not an all star) 14.5 ppg, 12 rpg, 2 3's mpg
C- Dwight Howard (all star never to make finals) 21 ppg, 14 rpg, 3 bpg

This team would be beastly on the boards, starters average 80 ppg, 45 rpg. Murphy is a beast from 3 point range and would be left open because they would have to double Howard, Millsap and Howard would be beasts in the paint, Ginobili would be the slasher to the basket, and Rose would be throwing out dime to the paint all night.

It doesn't say you can't choose an elite PG even if they haven't gone to an All Star game.
