i actually reallly like this lineup. i really wanted to put bird in my lineup. it was hard to leave him out, and i really wanted to put nash tooo. center was the toughest thing for me but i think Kareems sky hook is the most unstopable shot in basketball. but looks like shaqs geting most of the love right now.

I prefer some semblance of defense rather than 5 guys who want to score 25 per game. All 5 here were not only elite offensive players but all were among the top 3 defenders at their position all time. If I wanted a team that just scored ridiculous amounts of points I'd have Magic, Jordan, Carmelo, Dirk, and Shaq. If I wanted a defensive stalwarts all-time team I'd have Kidd, Dumars, Battier, Rodman, and Mutumbo.

While I think Jordan is better than Miller, I dont put him on a team already stacked with huge egos...i put stockton on the team to distribute the ball to all the offensive power...Moses is on over Shaq because on a team with Reggie, Dr. J and Duncan, you dont need a dominate offensive center, and Moses is quite possibly the best offensive rebounder of all time.

I think this is actually the only lineup that would actually be willing to work together also. I love Kobe, I think he is still the best player in the world over LeBron, but I'm not sure he'd be as willing to share the ball as these 5 I've listed here would. Magic and Larry were arguably the 2 most unselfish basketball players of all time for players of their abilities. LeBron is one of the more unselfish players of his time. And Michael was that guy when they were winning championships. He didn't share when he was young because he couldn't if they wanted to win. He had nobody else.

No its not quite the best at each position ever but it has defense, offense, post threat, clutch shooting, and some nice finesse. You got to consider ego's and not have all offensive players who need the ball. I dare you to beat this line-up :)

I tried to make the best team, not the single best player at each position. A team that potent only needs a point guard who can be a top notch facilitator and play solid D. Lebron and Bird were close, but Lebron is a better choice for the fact that he's a matchup nightmare and plays better D than Bird did. Russell gets the nod at Center because he was one of the best defenders the league will ever see and was more dedicated to winning than anyone in the history of the game.

Kobe over Jordan just doesn't make sense to me what so ever. There is nothing that Kobe does better than Jordan, nothing. But I'm all ears if you want to take a wack at it.

I'm going to pretend like you didn't say that. Lebron does not have half the defensive mindset Bird had, even though Bron is much more athletic.

And your contradicting yourself on the Kobe/Jordan issue. You said "I tried to make the best team, not the single best player at each position." So why not take Magic over Kidd? He was clearly the better facilitator and played decent D.

As for "nothing that Kobe does better than Jordan", there are many arguements. Kobe has better range and better ball-handling skills.

You can "pretend I didn't say that" all you like, but it won't change the fact that Lebron can easily be argued to be a better defender in his prime (now) than Bird ever was. There's probably a reason why Bird never made an all league 1st team defense, and Bron already has.

I won't bother arguing Magic over Kidd too much, because you can't go wrong with either choice. But Kidd is a 10/10 facilitator, turned the ball over less, comes with zero basketball ego (which would be huge on a dream team), and plays better D than Magic, period. So I'll go with him.

And I started cracking up when I read what you listed as Kobe having better than Jordan in order to justify that one. Range is actually true, Kobe's is probably better, but not something that is very important all things considered, is it? And "ball handling", hahahah c'mon dude, reaching much? I realize he's your idol or whatever, but stop being ridiculous. Just say, "It's MY dream team and I don't care if he's not the best singularly or for the team, he's on it!". The honesty would go a ways.

First, I REALLY like the choice of Scottie Pippen there, and actually given more thought I'll take him and Jordan together on the team I made probably beat any other dream team as easily as Jordan and Lebron would. Jordan's ego might be too powerful for LBJ to handle, but we already know it worked just fine with Scottie.

I don't get Odom over Duncan though, what's your thought process there?

With Jordan and Shaq in the lineup I felt like I have plenty of scoring. Duncan is much better than Odom, but I like Odom more as a facilitator as he's a better passer and ball handler than Duncan. Odom's range is also a little bit better for pick and pop three pointers. I also like having Lebron and Duncan on the court at the same time, I think they could work almost as well as Jordan-Shaq.

Edit: It's also likely that I would finish games with Duncan in over Odom unless I matched up against a really athletic PF that is too quick for TD.

With Jordan and Shaq in the lineup I felt like I have plenty of scoring. Duncan is much better than Odom, but I like Odom more as a facilitator as he's a better passer and ball handler than Duncan. Odom's range is also a little bit better for pick and pop three pointers. I also like having Lebron and Duncan on the court at the same time, I think they could work almost as well as Jordan-Shaq.

Edit: It's also likely that I would finish games with Duncan in over Odom unless I matched up against a really athletic PF that is too quick for TD.

Nice, fair enough.

You can "pretend I didn't say that" all you like, but it won't change the fact that Lebron can easily be argued to be a better defender in his prime (now) than Bird ever was. There's probably a reason why Bird never made an all league 1st team defense, and Bron already has.

I won't bother arguing Magic over Kidd too much, because you can't go wrong with either choice. But Kidd is a 10/10 facilitator, turned the ball over less, comes with zero basketball ego (which would be huge on a dream team), and plays better D than Magic, period. So I'll go with him.

And I started cracking up when I read what you listed as Kobe having better than Jordan in order to justify that one. Range is actually true, Kobe's is probably better, but not something that is very important all things considered, is it? And "ball handling", hahahah c'mon dude, reaching much? I realize he's your idol or whatever, but stop being ridiculous. Just say, "It's MY dream team and I don't care if he's not the best singularly or for the team, he's on it!". The honesty would go a ways.

Bird played on the greatest defensive team in history and in an era dominated by defense. He had to compete with the likes of Bobby Jones, Silas, Mchale, Roundfield, and Moses to make All-Defense teams. Bird would easily make last years All-Defensive team. He was the best at reading passing lanes and anticipating movement. Lebron has half the defensive mind Bird had. Not to mention Bird made one of the most clutch defensive plays in NBA history, if not the best.....

And you asked to to list me stuff Kobe was better at. I can start off with a whole argument that Kobe is better offensively and has a more profound skillset. Phil has said it himself he finds Kobe a more skilled player on the offensive end, while Jordan was the clearly better defender.

And it is my list, so whatever.

And as a Knicks fan thats hard for me to say since the Bulls kept knocking my team out. Although, we got them 1 year when MJ wasn't there. Wasn't the same though.

AI has always been a way underrated passer and playmaker. Everybody always remembers him throwing up a lot of shots because on those Philly teams who else would you want shooting the ball. At SG come on if you don't have Mike on your list you can go outside and get hit by a car. His name should be changed to Greatest Ever. Lebron would be my SF cause let's face it he's going to go down as probably the best all around player with his increase in D and the fact he loves to pass would be awesome. KG would be my PF because in my eyes hes the best PF ever. If he had Duncan's supporting cast he would have all those rings Duncan has. My Center would be Bill Russell so he could turn back whatever players try and drive the lane and the guy has 11 rings!!!! Are you serious 11? Yes 11!

In 96, Penny was playing at a Kobe-like level, the Magic won 60 games, Shaq lit up the Bulls and we still swept them. The very next year was the start of the Laker era Shaq during which he produced at or slightly about his '96 level.

BTW, Rodman guarded Shaq a good amount from what I can remember.

PJ Brown played exactly 18 regular season games for the Celtics after a year and a half away from the sport. He did alright in the playoffs. Sorry, that's no excuse. If PJ Brown could do it, why not the supposed best player of all time?

You do realize the 96 Bulls went 72-10 which is the best regular season record ever and to top it off, they waltzed through the playoffs as well.

And to say they didn't play anyone is ignorant. They beat a Sonics team with Payton and Kemp. They beat a Shaq + Penny Magic team. They beat a tough hard nosed Ewing led Knicks team, one of the best defensive teams, they also beat a Tim Hardaway + Alonzo Mourning led Heat team in the first round. They lost a total of 3 games in the playoffs that year. Once in the eastern conference. Were you not around for the 90s? Because your statement is pretty ignorant.

Not to mention PJ was a ROLE PLAYER. He didn't even START. So the guy is comparing a ROLE player who isn't going to have much affect on the C's winning a championship to MJ, who was easily and by far the most important player on the Bulls. Great comparison huh? lol

Yes and I can see anyone on that Laker team guarding Michael Jordan :facepalm:

BTW, those Laker teams were great but they didn't walk through the playoffs. In their first year, they won the championship because Portland blew a 15 point lead in the 4th quarter of game 7. They deserve the credit but Portland also choked. In 2001, they did steamroll through everyone. In 2002, they were given a championship by the refs who called the Kings-Lakers series about as poorly as possible. 29 free throws in the 4th quarter, I did not even know that was possible until that day.

The Bulls on the other hand walked right through their competition. And they walked through HOF competition (Karl Malone, Stockton, Ewing, Gary Payton, Shaq, Ewing, Mourning, etc.) The Trailblazers team didn't really have any HOFers on it, neither did the Kings (Webber? maybe) The Nets had Kidd.

Sorry, a year off, and while his numbers suffered when he came back for those 18 games, he stepped it up in the playoffs and had a huge series winning shot against the Cavs, and a huge block against Lebron on the other end. Not to mention a huge dunk on Kobe in Game 4 on the road of the Finals.

You two (along with ChiSox219) certainly don't know how to interpret posts. My point was, if a role player can have that big a layoff, play LESS games than MJ got to come back and play before the playoffs, and still be ready and play their tail off come playoff time, than why can't MJ do it? I was pointing out that it wasn't a valid excuse to use MJ's layoff and small amount of games played in the regular season.

The Bulls only real threat in stopping them from their titles in the late 90's was Karl Malone and John Stockton who were both like 35 years old, and well past their prime.

Another ignorant post (did you watch basketball in the 90s? or was it because the Celtics weren't good you skipped the decade?). I posted a list of all of the HOFers that Jordan and his Bulls went through. You ignored that post (post 109 and 112). BTW, I forgot some guys like David Robinson, Hakeem (who was still in the league, an older version who got injured but still pretty good), Barkley (also on the decline), but MJ was around the same age as most of these guys.

Oh btw, in the late 90s, Michael Jordan was ALSO 35 and well past his prime (well not really but he was old). Did you not realize that Stockton, Malone and Jordan are all around the same age?

And again, PJ Brown is a ROLE player, his role was not as important as MJ's. To expect MJ, who is basically the team, to come back after a year and a half and lead the team to an NBA title is not the same as expecting PJ Brown to come back and play a bit role in the Celtics championship. Brown played well but he wasn't a huge piece. You pointed out 3 plays, MJ easily had an impact in more than 3 plays. I don't know whats so hard to understand about that. A star's value to a team is going to be greater than a role player. And a role player has less of a gap to make up when they come back (in terms of getting back to the way they used to play). A team also is going to have a more difficult time integrating a star player back as opposed to a bench player.

And as that ChiSox fan pointed out, Rodman wasn't on the team yet (in 95).

It's kind of pathetic that you don't understand just how great those Bulls teams were. And knocking a team that won 72 games and destroyed everyone in the playoffs :facepalm:

Go tell the Cavs and their fans that PJ's Game 7 shot wasn't impactful.

I watched every Bulls finals in the 90's and kept thinking, why isn't there a team that can really compete with them. The best team they faced were the Jazz.
