I thought this would be an interesting exercise to do, figure out which ages the most NBA talent is concentrated at.

The All-22 year old team:
PG: Chris Paul (backups Monta Ellis, Sebastian Telfair
SG: Ronnie Brewer (backups Linas Kleiza, J.R Smith)
SF: Lebron James (backups Josh Smith, Luol Deng)
PF: Al Jefferson (backups Paul Millsap, LaMarcus Aldridge)
C: Dwight Howard (backups Andrea Bargnani, Darko Millicic)

The All-23 year old team:
PG: Deron Williams (ray felton, nate robinson)
SG: Brandon Roy (Rashad Mccants)
SF: Carmelo Anthony (Andre Iguodala, Travis Outlaw)
PF: Chris Bosh (Charlie Villanueva, Josh Boone)
C: Andrew Bogut (Kendrick Perkins)

The All-24 year old team
PG: TJ Ford (Devin Harris, Jarrett Jack)
SG: Kevin Martin (Ben Gordon, Sasha Pavlovic)
SF: Danny Granger (Josh Childress, Kelenna Azubuike)
PF: David Lee (chuck hayes, jason maxiel)
C: Channing Frye (Craig Smith, Ronny Turiaf)

The All-25 year old team
PG: Tony Parker (Mo Williams, Jameer Nelson)
SG: Dwyane Wade (Gilbert Arenas, Leandro Barbosa)
SF: Gerald Wallace (francisco Garcia, Ryan Gomes)
PF: Emeka Okafor (Chris Wilcox, anderson varejao)
C: Amare Stoudamire (Chris Kaman, Tyson Chandler)

The All-26 year old team
PG: Kirk Hinrich (Joe Johnson Chipping in backup minutes)
SG: Joe Johnson (Jason Richardson)
SF: Andre Kirilenko (Deshawn Stephenson)
PF: Carlos Boozer (Zach Randolph, Drew Gooden)
C: Dalembert (Boozer, Randolph, Gooden chipping in backup minutes)

The All-27 year old team
PG: Mike Dunleavy (crawford backing up 20 minutes)
SG: Mike Miller (crawford backing up 15 minutes)
SF: Caron Butler (Richard Jefferson, Josh Howard, Tayshaun Prince)
PF: David West (Al Harrington, Udonis Haslem)
C: Yao Ming (Pao Gasol)

The All-28 year old team:
PG: Baron Davis (Earl Watson
SG: Michael Redd (Ron Artest, John Salmons)
SF: Tracy McGrady (Hedo Turkoglu, Ricky Davis, Andres Nocioni)
PF: Rashard Lewis (Lamar Odom)
C: Brendan Haywood (with guys like Rashard and Odom chipping in minutes)

The All-29 year old team:
PG: Jamal Tinsley (Kobe backing up at times)
SG: Kobe Bryant (Rip Hamilton, Stephen Jackson)
SF: Shawn Marion (backed up by Jackson)
PF: Dirk Nowitsky (backed up by Marion at times)
C: Jermaine O'neal (playing way too many minutes)

The All-30 year old team:
PG: Stephon Marbury (Jason Terry)
SG: Vince Carter (Manu Ginobili, Desmond Mason)
SF: Paul Pierce (Wally Szczerbiak)
PF: Tim Thomas
C: ?

The All-31 year old team:
PG: Chauncey Billups (Andre Miller, Rafer Alston)
SG: Raja Bell (Bonzi Wells)
SF: Antawn Jamison
PF: Kevin Garnett
C: Tim Duncan (Brad Miller)

The All-32 year old team:
PG: Allen Iverson (Jason Williams, Brevin Knight)
SG: Ray Allen (Anthony Parker)
SF: Cuttino Mobley (Anthony Parker)
PF: ?
C: Zydrunas Ilgauskas

The All-33 and up team
PG: Steve Nash (Jason Kidd, Derek Fisher)
SG: Michael Finley (Jerry Stackhouse)
SF: Grant Hill (Bruce Bowen)
PF: Rasheed Wallace (Antonio McDyess)
C: Marcus Camby (Shaquille O'neal, Bem Wallace)

I think the 22 year old team is the best and the deepest, which is impressive given that they've got years of improving to do. If they had PG and Center backups the 29 year old team would be right up there. The frontcourt on the 27 year old team is awesome, but the backcourt sucks.

Who do you think the best team is?

I would say that the 29 year olds would be the best team, while the 22 year olds are by far the most talented. That is kind of an interesting thought, though.

Interesting.

The 22 year old team is the best by a fair margin. You can Josh Smith or Lebron play SG and have the best five for that lineup

22 and 25 will be the final....

with C.paul PG and Lebron SF, monster C howard...who can stop this 3 guys and Jefferson is not yesterday player, the only weakness on this team is SG...

25 team is just way amazing....i will put those guys in ALL STARS team.
they have amazing bck up C and PG...

well...maybe 25 will win by single digit..

:shock: Damn, I didnt even see that 25 year old team. I change my vote to them. Wow, what a stacked team that is....

Yeah, the 22 team gets my vote. I gotta give the 31 year old team a holler, as they probably have the best frontcourt.

Ehh...I see the 22 year old team as marginally ahead of the 25 year old team.
Position by position:
PG:
22 year old team, but not by a large margin, especially since Arenas will probably play a lot of backup minutes at PG
SG:
25 year old team has this one by a landslide
SF:
22 Year old team has this one by a landslide
PF:
22 Year old team wins this one, but not by much
C:
22 Year old team wins this one by a slim margin

Interesting topic, Pest. You're recovering your old touch to create new and amazing topics.

Pretty much that's right, although I don't like the all-25 team that much. Don't get me wrong, it's still among the best, but, the way I see it, the two best teams are the all-22 (play Lebron at SG and Smith at SF and that's a hell of a team) and the all-31.

The all-31, with KG and TD inside is pretty formidable and, although they lack a true SG (Bonzi Wells and Raja Bell are from that year, if I'm not wrong), it's a team pretty well covered in every position that presents a matchup problem inside for most teams.

The biggest difference to me is the bench of the 25 year olds. If you have Kaman, Chandler, Wilcox, Barbosa, Arenas, and Varejao coming off the bench, you have a stacked team. I agree with your analysis of the starters, but now factor in the bench. That is the breaking point, for me.

yeah, but most of the starters should be able to play a good 38 minutes per game without getting tired, and even with the bench factored in, it's only the shooting guard position that the 25 year olds will have an advantage in.

I like the 22 and 29 teams, but think Monta should be starting at shooting guard over ronnie brewer...

i think the 22 yr olds and the 25 yr olds would own. those two teams are way too beastly. 29 is a good team but lack any kind of depth.
