all time NJ might go toe-to toe with louisiana just because of shaq.

PG: Mike Bibby/Kyrie Irving/Brevin Knight
SG: Kelly Tripucka/JR Smith/Marshon Brooks
SF: Rick Barry/Michael Kidd Gilchrist/Randy Foye
PF: Dennis Rodman/Malik Allen/Tom Heinsoh/David West/Tim Thomas/Al Harrington/Troy Murphy
C: Shaquille O'Neal/Andrew Bynum/Billy Paultz

Youve got an elite pg when he was in his prime in bibby along with a future top 3 PG in kyrie

Youve got the GOAT center in shaq and the current 2nd best center in bynum

Youve got one of the best SFs of all time in rick barry

At SG you have an elite scorer in kelly.

Youve got the best pound for pound rebounder ever in dennis rodman.

Youve got ridiculous PF depth behind rodman. Tom was one of the best celtics ever while tim, al, and troy are all knockdown 3 pt big men.
