Scenario is that you can a build an expansion team that consists of only 33+ year old players by the start of next season. Anyone over 33 by the start of next season is eligible, to include Carmelo.

With your 12 vets... how far does that team go in the playoffs?

First round exit (at best), no matter who I choose.

LeBron James turns 33 during the season, so that's a bummer that he just misses the cut.

PG: Tony Parker / Deron Williams
SG: Dwyane Wade / Jamal Crawford
SF: Carmelo Anthony / Joe Johnson
PF: Chris Bosh / Zach Randolph
C: Tyson Chandler / Pau Gasol

Lots of production from the SF, PF, and C positions as players age, but I don't think the guard play warrants an NBA Finals appearance. It's surely deep enough to give 95% of teams trouble.

Don't forget about Iggy. He's 33 and would a great bench piece for that side

There's plenty of good players at age 33+. But they would lose in the Finals. You can only play five guys and the five guys they have would probably suck at defense.

Tony Allen can play D ... when he's healthy. Iguodala can play D ... when he's healthy.

Bron is going to be in Miami until he turns 33 at which point he's joining the team.
