This year the Bulls' Forum held a Mock-Trade deadline game. During this game, due to there being some really bad teams, some rosters were combined with others to increase parity. All teams made the playoffs. Users acted as GMs and tried to improve their team primarily through trade. All players are 100% healthy in these scenarios. So, in a 7-game series which team would win?

2. Indiana
PG: George Hill - Ricky Rubio - Donald Sloan
SG: Lance Stephenson - Victor Oladipo - Rasual Butler
SF: Paul George - Francisco Garcia - Chris Copeland - Solomon Hill
PF: David West - Dejuan Blair - Jeff Ayres
C: Roy Hibbert - Ian Mahinmi

3. New York
PG: Stephen Curry - Raymond Felton - Luke Ridnour
SG: Courtney Lee - JR Smith - Ronnie Brewer
SF: Carmelo Anthony - Metta World Peace
PF: Serge Ibaka- Glen Davis
C: Robin Lopez - Kevin Seraphin

*** Indiana has Home-court advantage

Leaning Pacers but very lame that they didnt shake up the starters at all.

Really? I think we have the bigs to slow down Hibbert, and ibaka in the paint will cause penetrates trouble. To beat Indy you need great floor spacing and to crash the boards I feel like I have both

To beat the Knicks team you need to slow down Carmelo (Paul George) and Steph Curry (Hill + Rubio). With Hibbert protecting the rim, Melo had some nightmare games and I look at your bench with hope of some spark to help lighten the load and instead see felton-jr-metta-bigbaby-seraphin and die a little inside.

Curry has been lights out in the playoffs, hill is a solid defender but I still seing curry having his way. Ibaka is also an improved offensive player, pick and rolls and pick and pops with curry and melo and curry and ibaka is deadly. Also lee spreads the floor great. Melo has never had a guy like curry to take the pressure off him. Jr isn't great but could still bring a spark off the bench. Lopez has also increased his level of play this year

NY has two guys who can nullify the offensive games of Indy's bigs.
This would be a close one but I like the Curry/Melo duo over Indy's actual starters.

Knicks win this. If currys on theirs no one that can stop and this was said by Lebron himself. Melo finally has support he's never had, another star player and one that's a perfect fit at that. Ibaka, Lopez and Davis is a very solid 3 man rotation. Lee and JR (relegated to bench scorer not 2nd option) is a nice group at SG.

This is such a great matchup. That Knicks offense is gnarly, and we all know about the Pacers' defense. Will have to listen to some more debate but I'm leaning NYK

We matchup with their bigs and their defense well. We have very good floor spacing they can't just pack the paint. We have 3 very good 3 point shooters. Geroge and lance are very good but inconstant offensively. We want them to handle all the load, curry had an amazing playoff and now having a top 5 year, Ibaka mid range this year is really been great. Not many teams can spread Indy defense out like this

Understatement of the season.

I went Indy. The real life Pacers are just too good right now for this team not to beat a Melo-Curry team with no bench.

How you are underestimating ibaka. 8 man rotation come playoff time anyway. It's not just curry melo. Ibaka is a very good player, lee has been great in Memphis. Lopez has been great all year

That's twice I've referenced your bench as being hot garbage and your reply this time is that I'm underestimating Ibaka? You bring the phrase "when you don't like what people are saying, change the subject" to life.

No you keep saying a melo/curry team as if I don't have support around them. Felton can handle 12 mins a night, jr smith is still a player that can score. Davis is still a decent player. Good floor spacing beats a good defense any day.

I said a "Melo/Curry" team once and that's because they are your two best players. What did you want me to say...? A balanced roster? Because you don't have that. Felton can't handle 12 minutes per night. Rubio/Oladipo will absolutely demolish him. JR Smith can still score? You actually want him to shoot the ball? He's one of the least efficient players in the NBA and you called him your "spark" off the bench. Davis is "decent" yet just a few days ago he was floating around on waivers... All weak and unconvincing responses. You did a great job on the starters but you ran into a team just as talented and cohesive with their starting 5 and you get run off the court when the subs come in the game.
