Remaining All 90's

Nash/Kidd/Billups
Kobe/Allen/Carter
Pierce/S. Marion
Dirk/KG/Brand/Odom
Duncan/Camby/O'neal

Vs.

2000's
Rose/Paul/Williams
Wade/Harden
LBJ/Durant/Melo
Love/Griffin/Aldridge
Howard/Bynum/Chandler

If not, when was the last year the all 90's could have still defeated the all 2000's in a best of seven?

*Comparison is as players are today in their current forum, not in the primes.

i dont think so,not anymore.most the 90's team has clearly lost a step and get burned on d more than the 00's would.last time i think would have been probably about 09

Edit: (MY BAD I DIDN'T READ THE REMAINING PART... SO HERE)
Very Close. I would give the edge to the 90's predicated upon all being in their prime. You have two top ten players of all-time in Duncan and Kobe. On the 2000's you have one potential top ten in LeBron . 90's owns the 2000's on the interior. 2000's have an amazing group of SF's.

PG's Wash
Wings 2000's
Bigs 1990's

Overall 1990's. Better balance, more elite pure shooter, and more elite defenders. More back to the basket players down low.

2000's would be pretty dominant so i change my vote. A lot of the 90's guys are washed up and on the tail end of their careers and effectiveness. They would be lucky to steal a game in my opinion.

in which case, what was the last year the 90's could have still taken the 2000s team in a best of seven? if you're inclined to say any time before 2007, add Shaq to the comparison.

Probably 2006 or possibly 2007 where you would have to remove a handful of these guys off the list. The 2000's team would be inexperienced and still finding their games. The 1990's squad would have guys that may not be at the high-points of their careers but they would have players that have enough effectiveness and savy to over-come the inexperienced 2000's.

obviously they can still be the 2000 allstars. maybe in 1 out of every 6 games. any nba team can beat any nba team anytime depends on who gets hot.

No they could not and the last year I would say with confidence that they could would be 06-07 and maybe 07-08.

Why are love and griffin ahead of bosh and amare? Even today both of those guys could still take over games.

On topic the 2000's team wins but maybe in six games. It wouldn't surprise me if the 90's team won though

I wouldnt put Allen, Marion, O'neal, Dirk or Billups in the all 90s team. they all made a name for themselves in the 2000s. even nash.

well, i used today as the standard of comparison, and i think that as of today, love and griffin are better. the statistics support that too, but that's just my opinion. go ahead and imagine any PF tandem you'd like, i don't want to dictate what the rosters should be in this hypothetical, i just went with who i see as the best players.

thats what i was thinking too. six games today. but whens the last season you think 90's draftees could have actually taken the series?

90's draftees vs 2000's draftees.

Considering 2010 Finals featured more 90's players than 2000 players ( Kobe,Odom,Garnett,Pierce,Allen ) and last years Finals MVP was Dirk drafted 1999 who won it over three 2000's players better yet two top three players and one top 10 2000's players, Id have to say the 90's team would win still. Also wehn you factor in 90's players coaching you would have to agree theyve been better coached throughout their careers and that would play a major part becuase I believe they see the game so much better.

As long as Griffin IS starting, I like the 2000s teams chances. Are we assuming this is under NBA rules and still governed by David Stern? Because if its in an isolated setting, theres no way I want Blake Griffin.

Can you explain me Why in bloody helll Pau gasol is not in the 2000 teams, when he played 2001-2010 and blake griffin is when he DID NOT PLAY in the whole decade? ( first season 10-11).


in fact your entire PF cast is horrible, wtf? Stoudamire and bosh should be there too instead of Aldrige and love too.

no worries mate.

eh, i'm sure itd be some kind of equal split in minutes.

because this is about right now, and griffin and love are better than gasol. re-read the op.

no amare shouldn't, he's been abysmal. the knick forum has been calling for his removal for weeks.


90s team is missing Manu.
i left him off because i'm talking about right now and he's injured. but i guess thats petty, just imagine manu on the 90s team.


This year no, maybe last year.

that's kinda what i was thinkin' too. or 2010. anything 2008 or earlier the 90's still has easily imo (because Duncan and kG were still producing at a very high level, and Kobe was top two).

wait hold on, are we basing this off of their primes? or right now currently?

I think it would be close, but I give the edge to the older team... If only for this year. I think Hyatt older teams generally do better in the playoffs. Also, with the depth, the age factor will not be as important, as they can sub in and play fewer minutes.

Thus, a fresher and more experienced older squad should prevail. Although, I have to admit, most of the older layers are dangerously close to being on steep decline.

On a side note, anyone know how many championships the players on each side have won?

Love and Griffin are both better players at their respective postions at this moment, i don't see Love giving up the "best power forward in the league" tag very soon..

And on the topic, yes the 90's draftee team could still beat the 2000 draftee team..whether it be one game, exhibition game, or a seven game series.

The only advantage the 2000team has is fast breaks. The 90s team is a better half court team with Nash distributing. Also, I think the older team would better embrace the team concept.

2000's would win now. 2007 the 90's would have had a better shot.
