Hakeem? He could have been charged with Grand Larceny for what he did to the Raptors.

Peja played TWO games for the Raptors

Yeah, I think we gotta go solely with guys who played for your franchise when they were still great, and had at LEAST one season there while being great. Player crossover is OK, but Hakeem on the Raps or Payton/Malone on the Lakers are good examples of who you shouldn't choose (I assume he was joking btw).

Warriors:

PG: Curry / Tim Hardaway
SG: Mitch Richmond / Klay Thompson
SF: Rick Barry / Chris Mullin (Kevin Durant soon)
PF: Draymond Green (or Nate Thurmond if you count young Nate. Center after that)
C: Wilt Chamberlain / Nate Thurmond

Starting to look pretty filthy.

so once again I will throw a curveball to this thread

Jordan/Big O
Lebron/Dr J(or Baylor)
Big Dipper/KG
Shaq/Hakeem

I guess their weakest position has been SG outside of Kobe. Jerry was a combo guard but played most as a PG, so other than Kobe, nobody really that was amazing.

AI, Korver, Dr J, Barkley, Wilt starting 5.

I think Iggy, Cheeks, Cunningham, Schayes, Malone.

Some good solid all round scorers. Wilt and Barkley give AI the support needed on the winds, Kroger gives the space, Dr J just does it all. Iggy gives 3 position flexibility. Cheeks can come in to slide AI to the 2-guard. Cunningham and Schayes could go 2-4. Malone brings the thunder.

PG: Steve Francis / Calvin Murphy
SG: James Harden / Clyde Drexler
SF: Tracy McGrady / Rudy Tomjanovich
PF: Hakeem Olajuwon / Charles Barkley
C: Moses Malone / Yao Ming

I gave Yao the edge over Elvin Hayes and slid Hakeem over to the 4 as he'd be more capable of defending opposing 4s and stretching defenses offensively with his mid-range game. It's tough to give Barkley the benefit of the doubt over Hayes, but he was still a great player when he come over to Houston initially, and he's easily a top 20-25 caliber player all-time. I'm also just not a Hayes fan. Maybe it's because I never saw him play, but his numbers indicate a highly inefficient big man who wasn't particularly strong defensively.

PG for Houston is tough as the Rockets have traditionally always had so-so PGs, but Francis needed to crack the rotation somewhere, and Murphy was a star for the Rockets in the 70s. I also have James and T-Mac the edge over Drexler since Clyde was past his prime by the time he came to the Rockets for that second title run.

From an accolades/pedigree standpoint, obviously the Celtics could. Off the top of my head...

PG: Bob Cousy / Jo Jo White
SG: John Havlicek / Sam Jones
SF: Larry Bird / Paul Pierce
PF: Kevin Garnett / Kevin McHale
C: Bill Russell / Dave Cowens

The fact that I had to leave Ray Allen, Robert Parrish and Dennis Johnson off this list really says something about how much talent and success the Celtics have had in their careers. Now from an "on paper, who wins a basketball game" conversation, the Lakers would dominate. But if that's the conversation we're having, I think there are a few teams that could compete with LA, including Chicago and Houston.

Allen, S. Jones
DJ, Rondo (gag)

Yeah on paper Cousy is the PG over Rondo (and I hate Rondo), but Cousy couldn't make a D1 college team these days.

Cowens as some may point out was a "Center". But take it from me who saw his whole career, he was a 4 playing out of position at 5.

And please, PP does not get ahead of Bird, or Havlicek - no way no how.

So, I understand your justification for not starting Cousy. I get it. But doesn't not giving minutes to Pierce just completely contradict that? If you're going with a "this team is playing an actual NBA game against other all-time teams" mindset, how in the hell do you leave Pierce off the roster? Also, how can you justify playing Hondo at the 3 against today's SFs?

Hondo should be at the 2, and Pierce should be right behind Bird at the 3 if you're going to try and win an actual game with that team.

my all time small ball lineup:

Van Exel
West
Bryant
Worthy
Johnson

I might have to make a thread like this. Make your franchise's best 10-man lineup suited for the modern NBA. Base your choices on how talented the player was with the team (i.e. Scottie Pippen probably doesn't make the cut. Michael Jordan probably wouldn't start for the Wizards). My Blazers:

Terry Porter, Damian Lillard
Brandon Roy, Geoff Petrie
• Clyde Drexler, Nicolas Batum
Clifford Robinson, Sidney Wicks
Rasheed Wallace, LaMarcus Aldridge

I went for shooting and defense. Robinson and Wallace were both good shooters who also played great defense. Petrie and Lillard are more offensively potent, but Porter and Roy are better two-way players. Drexler starts in any Blazers lineup. I debated whether to give Jerome Kersey or Batum the final spot, but liked Batum's shooting. I even debated adding Allen Crabbe.

We tend to think about superstars staying with their team, maybe because of Magic/Bird/MJ/Kobe/Duncan ... but they do move around plenty often.
