    If you all the players in their prime..............Team #1.

    Then 2/3 would battle for the second best.

    Re: Which team wins?

    #1 and I don't think it's that close.

    I feel foolish for asking this, but the picture quality isn't great. who is #1 on Team 2 and Team 4?

    Penny Hardaway and Oscar Robertson.

    I think #1 is the best, but #3 is pretty solid as well.

    I would rank them:

    1
    3 - LeBron, Kobe, Scottie, KG, Ewing is tough. Very big and an amazing defensive team.
    2 - Outside of Hardaway, a Wade/Durant/Duncan/O'Neal core is pretty tough
    4

    Thanks. I think #2 is probably second. Durant-Duncan-Shaq has to be the best frontline. But putting Magic and Jordan on the same team is just not fair.

    Re: Which team wins?

    #4 and I love Jordan, but Oscar Robertson would be a facilitator extraordinaire. Bird and Miller are clutch, Kareems' sky hook is unguardable, and Malone is Mr. consistency. People forget how ******* amazing Oscar Robertson was. He might be the greatest ever.

    Team 1 wins, and not because of Jordan.

    Re: Which team wins?

    Magic, Jordan, Dominique, Barkley, Hakeem.
    Penny, Wade, Durant, Duncan, Shaq.
    LeBron, Kobe, Pippen, KG, Ewing.
    Big O, Reggie, Bird, Karl Malone, Kareem.

    Team 1 is the best. Easily.
    Team 2 is hard for me to place. They have 5 great players, but Penny is possibly the worst of the 20 players listed. Durant is still in his prime, so hard to judge.
    Team 3 doesn't have an actual point guard. But they may be the best defensive team.
    Team 4 can score the basketball.

    I think I would rank them 1, 3, 4, 2

    Re: Which team wins?

    Every time I start to pick a team, I have second thoughts and talk myself into going a different direction. I want to say it comes down to Team 1 vs. Team 3. Team 3 would have unbelievable perimeter defense, but I think Hakeem eats up Ewing. Although Team 1 might have spacing problems with no real outside shooting, and a packed in defense with LeBron, Pippen and KG flying around would be terrifying.

    Re: Which team wins?

    Team 2 and 4 get eliminated because they have horrible defenders (Wade, Durant, Miller).

    Team 1 vs 3 would be insane, but 1 wins because Barkley and Olajuwon would beat up Garnett and Ewing.
