When I see the Mavs PG situation I don't think "STACKED."

Cavs are stacked at point guard.

You're right, I think the Irving, Jack combo is definitely better in terms of talent but in terms of quality talent and depth (what I refer to 'stacked') then I'll say the Mavs. There's a lot of teams with a deep inventory at a particular position but are not necessarily solid backups.

I wouldn't say the Cavs are stacked at PF. We haven't seen Bennett play yet and Thompson hasn't done enough to warrant the talk either. Clark is good but is he a PF or SF?

I like diu9leilomo's remark. Lebron alone means you're stacked at SF.

If quality of talent through each string than it has to be Rockets at PG. 1-3 string are all quality players you can plug in and handle the ball for a good amount of time. All run pick and roll good.

Not all of those guys will play PF but they all can and all will see time there.

Yeah even Alan Anderson can play there too. At 6'8" I think JJ might be better suited for SF anyway. Wouldn't consider that really going small.

I like them At C as well. Lopez/Blatche/Plumlee/KG can all handle the C spot. They are stacked at those two positions for sure.

Clippers at SG have Reddick, Crawford, Green all guys who have been starting some in recent years that could start for a few teams at least.

By "stacked the most," I'm assuming you're looking for the teams with the most overall talent at each position:

PG - Clippers (Chris Paul, Darren Collison, Jamal Crawford, Maalik Wayns)
SG - Rockets (James Harden, Francisco Garcia, Reggie Williams, BJ Young)
SF - Heat (LeBron James, Shane Battier, Rashard Lewis, James Jones)
PF - Minnesota (Kevin Love, Derrick Williams, Dante Cunningham, Chris Johnson)
C - Rockets (Dwight Howard, Omer Asik, Marcus Camby, Greg Smith, Donatas Motiejunas)

I mean the best talent in terms of depth at each position, not the most players that can play the position, as you've indicated (at least I hope because you named reggie williams, young, johnson, jones, ways). Those guys are not exactly good, let alone see much playing time.

And the idiot (mrblisterdundee) said

I listed the teams I think are most talented overall at each position. You'll notice that each team I picked has the best player at their position in the entire NBA. The others, although not that talented in their own right, do add to the overall "depth" of that position.
You made some crappy choices – I'm not sure so many people would agree with you that Ellis and Calderon are better than Paul and Collison – but I have to give you credit for at least not choosing the Knicks anywhere.
But seriously, dude; even Collison has a higher efficiency rating and more win shares than Ellis.

Golden States wing positions

I think the idea of the thread is talent + depth = answer, rather than just saying well LeBron is better than your two SFs combined so LeBron + his shoes > your team's SFs. I'm going to answer with that mind set.

PG - Oklahoma City (Westbrook, Jackson)
SG - Golden State (Thompson, Iguodala)
SF - Golden State (Iguodala, Barnes)
PF - New York (Melo/MWP, Amare, Bargnani, Martin)
C - Houston (Howard, Asik, Camby)

PG was the toughest for me, for some reason. I ultimately picked OKC because I really liked what I saw from Reggie Jackson in the postseason having to step into the starting role. I think he's going to have a really nice season, and I expect that we'll end up seeing a fair share of a Jackson-Westbrook backcourt playing out there with WB guarding SGs since the team doesn't have a strong backup SG to replace Thabo anymore.

Golden State's is odd, isn't it? lukass said the same, and I definitely agree with him. That wing trio is going to be wonderful to watch. You have three really good players spread out over the two positions. If I had to pick a different team to mix it up I guess I would go Indiana at SF with George, Granger. That may actually be better, depending on what Granger looks like.

The Knicks had the best PER differential at PF in the NBA last season, thanks to Carmelo Anthony playing there so often and doing a surprisingly good job on the defensive end of the court there as the Knicks allowed the 2nd fewest points from the PF position in the NBA. While he may play less there this season I think the depth of Amare, Bargnani, Martin, and I put Melo/MWP since I expect when they're on together that MWP will guard the PF, no doubt gives the Knicks the deepest talent at the position.

Rockets at C is pretty easy. Asik may be the best backup C in the NBA, so combining that with the best C in the NBA is a no brainer.

Edit: Wow, I don't know why I forgot about Brooklyn at SF. SF is actually the toughest now that I think about it. GS, Indiana and BK all have really good duos there. I'm not really sure which one I would pick. I think I would lean towards Indiana as long as Granger proves he can still be a good player.

Nets SG: joe Johnson, Jason terry, Alan Anderson. Dwill will definitely be playing a bit of 2 as well with Livingston at the one. Pierce can play 2 when we go big (dwill pierce ak)

If talent and depth are the answer, then what are your choices based on? Not to mention that you just listed Carmelo Anthony and Metta World Peace as power forward. Dear God; Knicks fans are total idiots.

not going to say it's the best because it clearly lacks a marquee player, but the Kings have a lot of good depth at PF: Carl Landry, Jason Thompson, Patrick Patterson, Chuck Hayes. Plus I think Mbah a Moute plays it sometimes, too.

The only reason Carmelo Anthony started playing power forward is because New York signed on to the NBA's worst contract, a.k.a. Amare Stoudemire. Last I checked he's on the verge of being put back at small forward with the signing of Andrea Bargnani and the return of Stoudemire.
If you're taking that tack, then Miami would win at power forward, as LeBron James is significantly better at it and often plays the position. And with Greg Oden and Chris Anderson at center, Chris Bosh can also play at power forward. The transitions of James and Anthony are driven out of necessity and a weak point in the front court.

Wrong again... the reason Melo played PF is because he is more successful at that position. He is strong and quick, which allows him to be very efficient in the post. In fact, even with a potentially healthy amare playing 20 mpg at PF and Bargs and Martin also needing some minutes there, there is still talk of Melo playing a chunk of his minutes at PF.

Nuggets at PG deserves a mention.


Warriors wing players; Iggy - Klay - Barnes - Green - Bazemore.

Nedovic is going to be more of a combo guard.


We also have one of the best defensive and rebounding big men rotations, unfortunately it's also one of the most questionable big men rotations due to health reasons. Bogut - Ezeli - O'Neal.

Poor modern fans... stacked is the 1983 76'ers, 1986 Celts, 1987 Lakers, 1989 Pistons, 1967 76'ers, 1962 Celts, 72 Lakers, etc. Stacked teams, not just positions.

I guess it's all relative..

Ak47 is a small forward. Will he play power forward in small ball line up yes. But not a power forward. Thought blatche was considered a center.

Blatche may have played Center last season, but he is a PF.

And AK is a better PF than he is a SF.

Also heat at center- Lebron, wade, bosh, Ray Allen, haslem etc.

People natural positions here. If a team likes to play small ball to get their best talent on the roster on the court at the same time that doesn't make said players where ever they are being pigeonholed that position.

Ex. Suns with Marion at pf and amare at center. Amare is a pf and Marion is a sf but that suns team liked to run and played players out of position.

Easy choice at C. Rockets with Howard, Asik and Camby. 2 top 10 C's AND a former DPOY at the C position? That's just nuts.

I can't think of another team that has 2 top 10 players at the same position AND a good 3rd string. Asik is one of the best starting Centers in the NBA and he's the back up... Heck, Camby could play back up C on a ton of teams.

Players playing multiple positions by nature makes this a little more difficult (i.e. Jamal Crawford, KG, Greg Monroe/Josh Smith, Brand/Horford, etc).

PG: Clippers - Paul, Collison or Nuggets - Lawson, Miller, Robinson
SG: Pelicans - Gordon, Evans, Rivers, Morrow
SF: Warriors - Iggy, Klay, Barnes or Heat - Lebron, Jones, Lewis, Battier or Pacers - George, Granger
PF: Hawks - Horford, Milsap, Brand or Pistons - Smith, Monroe
C: Rockets - D12, Asik, Camby or Nets - KG, Lopez, Blatche
