I was thinking about players I have always wanted to see together that never did.

1. Kobe + KG
-Trade came close a few years ago, but KG went to a rival. I grew to really dislike KG. But I thought they had the same old school personality, and they'd be awesome to watch

2. Kobe + Tim Duncan
-Might be better than Shaq + Kobe and Manu/Parker + Timmy D


3. Steve Nash + Shaq

4. Lebron + Shaq
-If Shaq were younger, who'd take the lead? Are they bumping heads too?

5. Wade + Gasol

6. DRose + Joe Johnson

7. A full healthy season of Jeremy Lin + Amare

CP3 and Dwight Howard

CP3 and Carmelo Anthony

D Rose and Dwight Howard

D Rose and Chris Bosh (I really wanted Bosh to join Chicago instead of Miami. I think they would have made a great team. Chicago would not have signed Boozer if Bosh signed. instead of getting beaten in the playoffs by Miami I think Chicago defeats Dallas for the chip.)

CP3 & Melo..

JasonJohnHorn
12-24-2012, 06:11 PM
As for dream scenarios, I can't think of too many. CP3 would be great to watch with Love I think, and he could get the most out of Howard likely as well (but Nahs may be able to do that as well).

As a Raps fan, I really would have liked to see Hibbert and Granger with Bosh... we could have had that line up, but we passed on Granger and traded Hibbert. But those three with Calderon at the point? That would have been a good team, and I think Bosh would have likely stayed in TO if we had put that roster together.

It would have been interesting to see a prime Shaq and a prime LBJ together.

Back in childhood days: Jordan and Issiah
after that era: Duncan and Shaq
Now: LBJ and Love I think would be the best combo to win with.

Fantasy: LBJ and Jordan. LBJ plays more like Pippen than he does Jordan, but (hard to admit cause I grew up a Bulls fan) LBJ is way better than Pippen was and would be the perfect Combo to Jordan's will, scoring and D.

LeBron and Amare when that trade was rumored for Hickson to keep LBJ in Cleveland would have been real interesting. 2010 Amare with prime LBJ :drool:

If somehow, some way the Bulls had acquired James Harden before the Rockets did... boy would that have been fun to watch. Could have been a backcourt of Rose & Harden :worthy:

Nevertheless I'm still glad things worked out the way they did.

Rondo+Lebron or Rondo+Howard.

Don't think either pairing would be too good. Yeah Rondo can feed howard with some nice passes but when the game slows he cant shoot and get his own shot something howard cant do either.

Lebron and Rondo both need the ball in their hands.

Put shooters around them, easy as that.

Wade and Lebron both need the ball, but they've worked out fine.

Also a LeBron and Kobe connection sounds dope as well.

Cant compare Wade to Rondo. Rondo is a distributor while Wade has always been a slasher. Only reason he had the ball in his hands so much years ago is because he never had a point guard and all his teammates were subpar. He played a lot of 1 on 5 ball.

One's not a star, but before the Bucks signed Redd to the max, there was talk of him going to Cleveland with Lebron. I think that would have been a crazy good duo. When healthy Redd was a good player and a heck of a shooter. Imagine him out there with Lebron attacking the hoop. I think Redd may have been the supporting piece Lebron needed.

Well, considering the dream super teams like this years Laker roster, the Heat, OKC last year...Magic's Lakers and Bird's Lakers, here are dream rosters I would have loved to see play together just for one season. Take a one year deal and play together:

Great offense

Kareem Abdul Jabar
Karl Malone
Larry Bird
Reggie Miller
Michael Jordan


Great Defensive unit

Hakeem
Rodman
Pippen
Jordan
Payton

Fastbreak team

Hakeem
Shawn Kemp
Dominique Wilkens
