    Re: Which team wins?

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

    Then 2/3 would battle for the second best.

    Re: Which team wins?

    Ahh... MJ, Magic, and the Dream? Team 1.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    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.
