Fun and games, guys.

But it got me thinking.

If you could combine the frontcourt of one team and the backcourt of another to make a new and improved team, which combinations would work best?

I came up with the Golden State Pistons:
Stephen Curry - Klay Thompson - Josh Smith - Greg Monroe - Andre Drummond

Those guys would definitely run and get out there. And there's a nice balance between 3-point shooting and frontcourt athleticism.

The Brooklyn Pacers also came to mind:
Deron Williams - Joe Johnson - Paul George - David West - Roy Hibbert

Would be scary.

Any others?

Rubio - McLemore - Gay - Love - Cousins

Not the best backcourt, but Love-Cousins would make for one hell of a frontcourt.

Edit: Actually, NVM guess I didn't understand the rules clearly. Guess I can't really use my Kings for anything haha.

NBA Super Undestructible Density team

I'll call them The Oklahoma City ThunderHeat


*(Starting Lineup)*

Pg- Westbrook
Sg- Wade
Sf- Durant
Pf- James
C- Ibaka


*(Bench)*

Pg- Jackson / Chambers
Sg- Lamb / Roberson
Sf- Beasley / Sefo
Pf- Jones /Haslem
C- Bosh / Adams

Washington Timberwolves would be interesting...

It would be better if you would make a team with teams that are out of POs now...
Something like Denver Cavaliers(Lawson, Kyrie, Gallo, Faried, Varejao) or Denver Lakers(Lawson, Kobe, Gallo, Gasol, McGee, if you can use injured players) or Denver Timberwolves(Lawson, Martin, Gallo, Love, Pekovic) or Denver Grizzlies (Lawson, Allen, Gallo, Randolph, Gasol) or Denver Magic (Lawson, Afflalo, Gallo, Faried, Vucevic) or Denver Knicks(Lawson, Chandler, Gallo, Melo, Chandler)...
But if we can use PO teams then i would go with Denver Thunder(Lawson, Westbrook, Durant, Gallo, Ibaka)

Did any of you even read the rules? SMH

Obviously the best combo would be Warriors backcourt and Pacers frontcourt

PG: Thomas/Oladipo
SG: Afflalo/Mclemore
SF: Harris/Harkless
PF: Landry/Davis
C: Cousins/Vucevic
Cheerleader: Gay

Or if I want to swing for the fences, Bucks/Magic

PG: Oladipo/Nelson

SF: Giannis/Harris
PF: Henson/Davis
C: Sanders/Vucevic

I think some people didn't read my first post.

You can only use the full backcourt of one team and then combine it with the full frontcourt of another team. No intercombining rosters.

Like the Houston Thunder:
Jeremy Lin | James Harden | Kevin Durant | Ibaka | Perkins

Live how you would destroy the warriors who thrive on their bigs being able to pass to the guards by adding athletic guys with low IQ's. The warriors would be worse off with those 3 added.

I understand, but Smith and Monroe are great passers too, and they add athleticism on top of that. I think that lineup would be scary and entertaining, but obviously you can feel free to disagree.
