Which players in the league today can play all 5 positions?

Lebron James: there is nothing this guy can't do when it comes to basketball.

Lamar Odom: This is a big guy who handles the ball better than some PGs in the league. He might struggle a little bit at the 5, but if Chris Bosh can play center, he can do it.

Who Else?

Odomd at 5? so when you say "can play" you mean just be out on the court right?

None.

there has only been ONE player ever who could get away with that.

The closest one right now is Lebron, but cant really see him at the Pivot position.

Odom is 6-10. He could play center against a lot teams in this league.

Nate Robinson

He doesn't even have a natural postion. He's an undersized combo guard lol

Only Lebron. Odom wouldn't be effective at the 1 or 2 or 5. To reiterate what the other guy said, by "play a position" you mean be out on the floor?

only lebron, and he might even be a stretch

no to odom bc i do not see him being able to defend guards.

no to durant bc i do not see him being able to defend centers in the post.

offensively all 3 can play the 5. but defense is where it makes and breaks guys for this question.

Boris Diaw in his Sun Day's did a solid job

None, it also depends what you mean by play all 5 positions. Do you mean play it for a possession, Just for a specific game? Or do you mean play any position throughout a whole season?

Lebron - Could play 1-3 effectively, but i don't think he could play the 4-5 as effectively.

Odom - He wouldn't be effective at the 1, 2 and 5

Marion - Can't play the 1, 4, 5. He could get away with at the 4 position depending on match-up, and even at that he would just be out there to stretch the floor on the offensive end. Defensively he won't be able to contain the bigger and talented PF's.

Durant - Can't play the 1, 4 and 5, plus he's too thin to take the consistent punishment in the paint.

Diaw - Can't play the 1, 2, and 5. He is a good point-forward though.

Mougsy Bogues comes to mind

Kirilenko could in his prime. I don't know about these days. Him, Lebron, and Marion were the first to come to mind.
