  • I agree with max, I choose hakeem over shaq. Pg steph Sg mj Sf kd Pf duncan C hakeem Some people are gonna hate me for this 😁 but who needs lebron when you have those all time greats as your first 5, they are not just role players for lebron to elevate his game, and michael jordan is already more than enough to be that line ups leader. If you have the GOAT with that kind of line up, then they can go 82-0 in an nba season and 16-0 in the playoffs

  • People keep saying today’s rules vs yesteryear’s rules... his list ain’t perfect but I can’t see how any of those players will not work in any rules, if you take the smallest player in Steph as an example, if Dell Curry can average 16 points and 4 3 pt attempts a game, you don’t think the super sayan version couldnt have destroyed those defence with his shooting from 35 feet?

  • Curry makes sure the game ends three quarters if all 5 are on fire. The way curry plays just makes teams give up. Other may impose their will on the game. Steph just kills the entire vibe to want to keep playing. Hard to assemble a team that would beat those 5.

    • @Jon Russell Allen Iverson would move really well without the ball look at all his playoff games with Larry brown as a coach!cury is good but I feel in a more physical era he would have problems!Tim Duncan is one of my favourite players he was the perfect team player but Barkley was something special in many ways and I think he was better!

      Ioannis BezasIoannis Bezas4 days ago
    • @Ioannis Bezas That's a solid top 5. I'd take Steph over Iverson because he's lethal with and without the ball and extremely efficient. You could never double MJ or the rest. Iverson was not effective without the ball so you lose an entire player on the court whenever the ball is in MJ/KD's hands which it should be in their hands a majority of plays. I'm a huge fan of Sir Charles, but I gotta go with Tim Duncan. Not even a fan, but that guy never team hopped and absolutely dominated the difficult west for over almost two decades. He turned coach pop into a HOF coach with his quiet personality. Even just from a chemistry standpoint, it would be great to have a player who is a bonafide double double who is unselfish insight out passer. Props on the hakeem pick because he is wildly underrated at his peak.

    • My top 5would be1)Iverson 2) Jordan 3)Kevin Durant 4) Barkley 5) Hakeem.i would bet all my money on this team

      Ioannis BezasIoannis Bezas4 days ago
    • @Jon Russell there is no conversation about Jordan he was the best or second best I m just saying that Allen Iverson would have a diferent legacy if he had a team and that he is allot better than many of the new era players!harden, Westbrook, cury,and many more!Kevin Durant is the most talented scorer but his rings don't count for nothing!Iverson for me is top 10ever!!

      Ioannis BezasIoannis Bezas4 days ago
    • @Ioannis Bezas Except we got to see MJ without a squad of any sort and he was the most lethal volume scorer in the modern era while being efficient.
