If you could compose a team of all south-paw players who would you take? create a starting 5 (bench if you want) I got -

PG - Mike Conley
SG - James Harden
SF - Josh Smith
PF - Chris Bosh
C - Greg Monroe

6th man PG Brandon Jennings
SG Manu

That team would win a ship imo. who ya got?

Is there a reason that you put Jennings at sixth man over arguably the best 6th man ever?

Age/durability pretty much, jennings would be a great spark off the bench but when healthy id take manu all day

Lebron writes left handed. I would use him if he counts. ;)

Kyrie
Manu
Kobe
Bosh
Bogut

although Bogut, Kobe and Kyrie are apparently ambidextrous so I'm cheating :)

Today's players don't stack up favorably at all.

Really? Wilt talked about how it was harder to shoot over Russell because he could block shots quicker.

Gail Goodrich, Bob Lanier, Billy Cunningham, Dave Cowens, Willis Reed, etc.


Bob Cousy and David Lee can play with both hands.

Watch. Next season he comes out and says "Yeah, I'm really left handed" then averages 60ppg.

He just wanted to see if he could do it right handed too.

There are very many players that play with both hands but Lee is naturally left handed. I'm quite certain you know his story.
