For those of us without computers for brains, Ive posted the links to a list of notable players in each age bracket. Teens, 35 Year olds and the final bracket, 36 or older. Meaning the 35 year old squad HAS to be 35 and the +36 can be any age older than that.



Best Teen Team : http://bkref.com/tiny/3hflD

Best 35 Year old Team : http://bkref.com/tiny/Yw9Yt

Best +36 Team : http://bkref.com/tiny/DsgDQ


Keep in mind Im not asking for the best collection of talent, though you can certainly go that route, but Im looking for whatever team you feel would mesh best.


Will wait on some of these for now, heres what I got;

Teen Team:
Irving, Kobe, Tmac, Moses/Dwight

35 Team:
Nash, Reggie Miller, Drexler, Malone, Wilt

36+:
Stockton, Ray Allen, MJ, KG, Kareem

teen:
PG- Irving
SG- Melo
SF- Durant
PF- Bron
C- A. Davis

Wasn't sure between Howard and Davis but gave Davis the edge based on averages of blocks, steals and points verse Howard's slight rebounding edge.

All these players have shown they are extremely versatile and can play the selected positions. We also know they can work together as they all have participated together in USA basketball.

Irving (Scoring and play-making)
T-Mac (A lot of people forget he was a defensive stopper in his first 3 years)
LeBron (Do-it-all 3)
Carmelo (Stretch 4 and best low-post option on the list)
Anthony Davis (rebounds, blocks and your defensive anchor)

Nash(13 pts 12 assists)
Kobe(23 pts 6rbs)
Lebron(22 pts 8 assists 9 rbs)
Dirk (19 pts 6rbs)
Gasol( 18 pts 10rbs 2.5 blk)

Nash has a lot of good shooters. Dirk plays outside the post which would leave gasol in the post. Pau Gasol in the back to back ship run was playing better than dwight has ever played in his career. I would prefer Gasol instead. Also incredible passing.

Is this the 35 year old team or the 36+ or both?

Word. I thought someone might label me a homer for going with Mac but its true, his defense was valuable and his production was hinting at an All-Star player.

That said I think your team is alil lean and maybe too versatile.

I didnt really label it. Its both but the exception is lebron. Its sort of a mix really. I think this team would win a championship even today.
