Theres not much brain work involved when creating an unstoppable team. As it turns out, theres not much difficulty creating the next best team either. So this time rather than limit 10 players from being selected, we're going with 50+.


You see this list of PSD's greatest players of All-Time :

You cant use ANY of them. On top of that you CANNOT choose an active player unless hes at least 30. Create the best starting 5 and 5 reserves you can think of, naming only the remaining NBA players.






Good luck, and my god have mercy on your soul.

Good start, BUT Tmac made the cut.

I think Dwight and CP3 should be DQ'd on the grounds that they are still playing.


New rule, only active players over 30 can be chosen.

In their prime? And if they are that's really going to **** up the C position.

Mullin would have been the 11th player on my team had we been allowed to expand. I just value Manu and Jones in a bench capacity higher than I do Mullin since they are two of the best bench players ever.

Okay I honestly was convinced he was on the list somewhere and i just wasn't seeing him haha. I completely forgot about Manu in all honesty or else I would have put him in place of Mullin and bumped out Rice for Mullin.

Thats a very interesting squad, I think you would be better served interchanging your big man rotation tho. Deke and Rodman are overkill defensively and inept offensively, meanwhile Cowens+Mac are undersized defensively and overkill offensively. Cowens+Rodman or even Cowens+Deke sounds like the superior starting duo.

I got two more elite defenders off the bench, plenty of 3 point shooting and range. A great offensive 4 off the bench and one of the greatest shot blockers and inside defenders of all time in Mutombo.

A defensive line up of Billups/Nowen/Artest/Rodman/Mutombo will shut down any team.
