The just gotta keep there hands high and never bounce the ball. It's really easy its like playing keepaway. They beat every team before the 4th is even finished because all Shaq does is keeps getting to the line and has his guys grabbing offensive rebounds after his missed free throws.

on the full court press just keep your hands high, no need to dribble just pass to the sky, and when an opponent starts to score without missing, bring out andrew bynum to elbow that midget

lol no. how would they defend a 3 point shooting team, im curious. especially with their bench lol

Hakeem and Admiral were both mobile and agile. They'd be able to defend the three. Their length also makes up for some loss speed. IT's defending players off the dribble that would be harder.

Maybe from age 24 and lower. When star bigs hit their primes which tend to be later than the other positions, they will be more dominant.

From 24-32 I think the 5 position has an advantage.

Robinson was a great passer. Hakeen and Robinson are both good picks for the guard position.

09-18-2012, 11:54 AM
This is not so crazy as everybody is making it out to be. I would have picked different centers. Bill Laimbeer (great 3pt shot) would be on the team, and Brad Daughtery. But it would be interesting to watch these guys on the court.

Obviously they will have weaknesses. Staying in front of a quick guard on the outside, hitting 3's etc. Blocking shots, rebounding, second chance points, and interior defense will not be one of those weeknesses. And if they play a zone, with there length they can effect any shot that goes up. I personally would pick this team to win because with all that skilled height, they would probably end up scoring 95% of the time they got the ball near the hoop. Ive hear it echoed, alot of passing, and little dribbling, And David Robinson could ball handle better than Chris Mullin so when they did have to do some dribbling, he could do alot for them bringing the ball up. But they would be passing way more than any team ever to get it up the court I know this.

ya they probably would win. let hakeem handle the ball up court though.... they would just post up and dunk on ppl lol.

ya they will have turnovers but they will just block every thing or give straight hard fouls on defense so it would be hard to score on them.

This team would definitely win the title. No team could match up size wise, you would probably have 2 of the 5 being guarded by guys 6'5" and shorter. They would shoot like 85% and then probably get every offensive rebound. This team would literally score on 90%+ of there possessions. Then on defense they would just control the paint and snag every rebound. Teams would be forced to take jump shots and they would have to hit them at like 70% to keep up with this teams scoring.

A team full of HoF centers can win. Put 2 of the best shot blockers on the defensive side of the court and leave them there. 2 others on the offensive side of the court and leave them there. The 5th guy stand at half court. Who could guard 2 of the greats down low? Who could get a shot up against 2 of the best shot blockers? The half court guy is there for transition.

Yes this team would win it also. Mainly because they have the two best players in the league on the team and the bench is sick.

I think that if you took the best five players in history at any one position and put them on the same team, they would win it.

Ridiculous. The Centres would stand no chance. The half court guy would be there ready but would get blown by.

The centres would get doubled every time and sometimes tripled as there are only 2 of them attacking. Terrible strategy. No1 to kick out to when doubled to hit outside shots, they would turn the ball over a record amount of times.

Seeing as how a prime Jordan had absolutely no chance against David Robinson on a fast break, I think you are underestimating what the best centers ever are going to be able to do out there.

A huge difference between the best centers that ever played and your average centers. Some of the best centers that ever played move like your average SF. But there 7-1 super strong, and can shoot. Were talking about the best. Don't think many players can beat David robinson the length of the court and finish on him. Not happening.
