    Can a team of former nba stars compete in the NBA?

    Former stars like Starbury, T-mac and Agent zero are looking for employment outside of the NBA can a team composed of former stars compete in the NBA? I don't mean Bobcats compete I mean playoffs compete and maybe a title run.

    Iverson/Starbury
    Agent 0/Redd
    T-mac/??
    ??/??
    ??/??

    Fill in the blanks.

    Are we talking like Free Agent former stars, or any former in general?

    Well try to keep it with the players out of the league and in other countries but players like Michael Redd can be used.

    Nah, it'd be a fun team, but there's no way they could compete with the good teams in the league today.

    I'd definitely love to see a team with AI, TMac, Arenas, etc though.

    AI TMAC and Arenas will be fighting over shot attempts.

    Not a chance
    THE GOAT

    Until a player reaches these PA numbers, lets not talk about how good they are.


    The Following PA's are when sample size stabilizes

    50 PA: Swing %
    100 PA: Contact Rate
    150 PA: Strikeout Rate, Line Drive Rate, Pitches/PA
    200 PA: Walk Rate, Groundball Rate, GB/FB
    250 PA: Flyball Rate
    300 PA: Home Run Rate, HR/FB
    500 PA: OBP, SLG, OPS, 1B Rate, Popup Rate
    550 PA: ISO

    No chance they could go against LA, the Heat, or the even the Bobcats for that matter, but just for fun...
    Iverson
    Arenas
    McGrady
    ????
    Yao

    Couldn't think of any retired PF's that might could still play that were once superstars. Camby & Rasheed Wallace came to mind... but they both are still in the NBA.

    Cool

    I would love to see a team like that, but they would not make the playoffs. There is a reason they are not in the nba.

    They're 'former' all stars for a reason

Similar situation happening with Kevin Love, the team has to surround him with foreigners and whites because black players won't succumb to the greatness that is Kevin Love.

    No chance with the guys you've already started listing. They are all pretty much ball hogging scorers too so I doubt that they would have been that great when they were all in their prime.

    You listed a bunch of ball dominant players who would have no chemistry whatsoever.... so I say no.... they could not compete in the NBA.

    Iverson/Marbury
    Redd
    T-Mac
    McDysse
    Shaq

    I don't know... they'd need a better bench because none of them would be able to play a lot of minutes.
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.
