I'm glad to see they put Yao on the 2nd team. Damn could you imagine if he wasn't hurt ALL the ****ing time and he had strong *** feet. NASTY!!!

The list seems quite acurate, except for the second team. I would move Iverson up to the shooting guard position, plug Jason Kidd into the point guard position and move Dwayne Wade off of the second team. Lets face it he came in 2003 and had two great years, last year and the year where he won a title. He was injured for a season and a half.

Yeah if they wanted to be continuous they'd have Kidd on that list, and secondly Dirk isn't the best SF there are plenty that could own his *** at that position.

How can they put Nash over Iverson. This has nothing to do with team success and Iverson has been the HANDS DOWN better player this decade. And since this is the ALL DECADE TEAM, like in the ALL NBA TEAM it is the best 2 guards, 2 forwards and center ( PG and SGs dont matter). So how is KG not on the first team? Lebron James over KG????????? :facepalm:

How can they put Nash over Iverson.

Because Iverson has been exposed as a SG who's too small or a PG who doesn't (for whatever reason) run a team very well.

That's a pretty amazing first team. Hard to debate any of those, except that CP3 has done almost enough in his four years in the league to rank as the second team PG.

I hate these... too many good players to have a "all decade team" consisting of only 10 spots... Chris Webber anyone?

First Team

PG: Jason Kidd
SG: Kobe Bryant
SF: LeBron James
PF: Tim Duncan
C: Shaquille O'Neal

Second Team

PG: Steve Nash
SG: Allen Iverson
SF: Dirk Nowitzki
PF: Kevin Garnett
C: Yao Ming

Third Team

PG: Chauncey Billups
SG: Dwyane Wade
SF: Paul Pierce
PF: Amare Stoudemire/Chris Bosh/Pau Gasol/Carlos Boozer??
C: Dwight Howard

Jason Kidd and Steve Nash are interchangeable.
I know Dirk isn't a SF but he fits in.
Was tempted to put Chris Paul and T-Mac on the third team for their numbers alone but those rings said different.
Really couldn't think of anyone for the 4 spot on the third team, so just put some possible candidates.

Just my opinion guys.

Jason Kidd should have made one of the teams and it's debatable whether or not he should be ahead of Nash on the first team.
