Coltraning - Head Coach: Greg Popovic
Roster: MJ, Lebron, Walton, Nash, Dirk, Kidd, Carter, Cowens, Amare, Dantley, Ray Allen, Joe Fulks
Great scoring team as has been said. Not to be harsh but here's the thing - Walton was injury riddled and would not give more than 3 or 4 good years at the most, Nash is unbelievable BUT he has only been great for 2 full seasons and very good for some 4 or 5 so a superstar for 3 years. Amare has not done much yet and only been around for 4 years. Lebron has only been around for 3 years but has already done what few before him have and with Jordan is a devastating 1-2 combo! Kidd and Carter are great players, Kidd being top 5 PG alltime.
Defense fairly weak and coach doesn't fit but overall a great team that I rank 3rd best overall.
John Patrick - Head Coach: Larry Brown
Roster: Wilt, Barkley, Iceman, Cousy, dominique wilkins, Wes Unseld, payton, Bernard King, Hal Greer, Richmond, Mullin, Bosh
Great scoring team but definately small as has been said and defense weak. Bosh just shouldn't be here because he has not been anywhere near amazing enough.
Good team but nowhere near the best here.
Reggielewis - Head Coach: Lenny Wilkens
Roster: Kareem, Barry, Elvin Hayes, Iverson, Reggie Miller, Parish, English, THompson, Bing, Lanier, Marques Johnson, Tony Parker
Decent in many areas but some picks just shouln't have been, such as Miller, Parish, Marques Johnson and Parker. Kareem, Barry and Iverson would have to carry this team for them to win much.
Fairly good team but nowhere near the best
Pestilence - Head Coach: Red Holtzman
Roster: Magic, Mailman, Moses, Kobe, Rodman, Alonzo Mourning, Jerry Lucas, Nate Archibald, Ron Artest, Bob McAdoo, Alvin Robertson, Dennis Johnson
Great team, especially defensively. Magic is ideal to get the most out of this team. Scoring is a weakness but the biggest negative is attitude as Artest, Kobe, Rodman, with the occassional Mourning, would kill each other.
A great team that can defend but would find scoring a bit difficult. Top 2 team
Xbayareawarriorx - Head Coach: Pat Riley
Roster: Bill Russell, Dr. J, Isiah, Pippen, Mikan, Wade, Reed, Artis Gilmore, sam jones, chris webber, Chris Paul, Dave Debuschere
Well, this team could have been better. The last two picks could have been much better. Decent scoring team but not much defensively. Too many big guys, not every position is filled properly.
Nowhere near the best
Migya - Head Coach: Phil Jackson
Roster: Larry Bird, Hakeem, KG, Pete Maravich, TMac, Ewing, Tim Hardaway, Grant Hill, Elton Brand, Kevin Johnson, Paul Pierce, Walt Bellamy
Trying to be unbiased but really see my team as being complete at every position and will explain a bit: Some might say that Tim Bug and KJ are not great PGs but their career numbers and standard is higher than most PGs alltime. They are underrated players I believe and fit this team perfectly. Bird and Hakeem accomplished pretty much everything in their careers and are great leaders. Ewing is a slight level beneath Hakeem but arguably alltime top 10 Center. Grant Hill can be seen as a 6 year megastar at the very least but he has had two very good seasons since as well. Maravich is bashed a bit but he ws good at pretty much everything and was a great "outside shooter" as well (Pest: They didn't have the three point shot until the last season of his career).
Scoring is covered, as is defense with only Maravich and Bellamy possibly seen as no more than decent (Bird played defense and made the All Defense 2nd team a few times). No attitudes. Leaders and winners most are.
Top 2 team at least but hard to see any other matchup with and outplay
TMC - Head Coach: Red Auerbach
Roster: Big O, Baylor, Duncan, Earl "The Pearl", Thurmond, The Admiral, Walt Frazier, Worthy, Arenas, Mutombo, Spencer Haywood, Dale Ellis
Very good scoring and defense. Great bigs with Duncan, Admiral and Thurmond and Mutombo plays great role as defender. Some leaders and winner, notably Duncan and Worthy. Can do pretty much everything fairly well.
Top 4 team
THUNDER: Head Coach: Chuck Daly
Roster: Shaq, Logo, Havlicek, Stockton, Pettit, Drexler, McHale, Yao, Sidney Moncrief, Marion, Ben Wallace, Dumars
Pretty good team but picking West this early stuffed it. A great SG would have been ideal instead. Everything decent but nothing special and not enough athletes that can create.
Nowhere near the best
