    Bosh is definitely not the PF for the decade. Love is the best PF right now.

    Wade peaked late 00's when Kobe was king. Now in 2012 Durant is def the gold standard SG.
    And yes, all players in prime form.

    You're right bout Bosh Blastmasta26. But I'm not putting love on that list yet. I replaced Bosh w Dirk as 10's PF.

    I don't think Dirk works either, considering he probably doesn't have more than 3 years of high level play left in him. So he's not a good representative for the 10's.

    Regardless, I take the 90s. Great balance and elite defenders to counter the other decades. The 00s team would struggle with Garnett at the 3 and an overall lack of spacing and the 10s team has defensive liabilities with Dirk and Durant (since he's facing Kobe and Jordan).

    90's PF would be Malone, not Barkley. And that team would definitely win.

    How the hell is Garnett at Small Forward.

    Replace him with Lebron and 00's takes it easily.

    If the 10's center wasn't so weak compared to the others and it was CP3 over Rose I would've said them but it's easily the 90's.

    That 90's team is way too small with Barkley at PF.
    00's team has no spacing and teams would just pack the paint or play zonal.

    With these lineups i'd take 10's as Rose would just blow by the others every single time. If the others put Kobe/Jordan on Rose, there would be a massive size and speed advantage for either Durant or Lebron vs Stockton or Kidd. This 10's team would have everything; size, dominant rebounding, range shooting (Lebron above 40% 3's and Pa PF who can hit from anywhere) and would kill on fast breaks.

    I'd love to see the 80's team though

    This may possibly change my mind. Not sure how a team would score against them then!

    Rose would definitely be the key to scoring then.

    90's best defense and very well rounded offensively.

    BTW I would put Dirk in the 00's. He played that whole decade no?

    Barkley was undersized his whole career and still dominated bigger guys, your claim has no merit.

    Jordan had elite speed and Pippen had elite lateral quickness on the perimeter. You could even replace Stockton with Gary Payton. Payton was a beast defensively. All those guys were capable of guarding DRose.

    Check this 90's lineup: Probably the sickest defensive decade starting five ever.

    PG Payton
    SG Jordan
    SF Pippen
    PF Rodman
    C Dream
