    He had for a few posts. ;)

    Come on man. The dude has an LA championship belt avatar and is starting all Lakers. It should have been obvious to you in the first post.

    Lol at having a win or die list and not having MJ on it. Opioid crisis has finally hit the Spirts Bar.

    I emphasize two-way playing and versatility this is why without a doubt my team would be:

    PG Lebron
    SG Jordan
    SF Durant
    PF Garnett (if we're taking only the prime version) or Tim Duncan (if we're taking the average version)
    C Hakeem

    Sacrificing a little bit of range (only Durcant and LolBron have deep 3pt range) for efficiency and dominance

    Hakeem and Jordan are easily the most skilled two-way players in their position (and of all time quite possibly) along with garnett (who is on the team) and robinson re the only dudes to win both mvp and dpoy

    Lolbron and durcant shape up the new era of dominance, the team will just have NO weak matchups ever. I do acknowledge that 3 point spacing will be a hurdle as only durcant and lolbron (and garnett to some small extent of his midrange) can produce, but I think the team is just too good overall that it will mesh and blend well.

    Lolbron primary ballhandler, jordan secondary ballhandler, durant the go to kick it off to shooter/scorer, garnett midrange two-way versatile does it all glue guy and hakeem just a defensive juggernaut (best defensive player of all time IMO) incredibly skilled in the post and just an utterly dominant center that eats any matchup.

    I think I like my chances at staying alive in this one.

    The person that’s picking the team your guys are facing is picking dudes like Jordan, Lebron and Kobe. You know, the GOATS. You must not value your life that much.

    I've got the tallest mofo's the game ever has seen. I got the smallest guys too.

    My boy Earl Boykins is coming off the bench too. How you gonna stop him?

    why not just pick the players that are considered the top 5 (in alphabetical order to avoid people debating)...in any position.

    Abdul Jabbar, Kareem
    Bird, Larry
    James, LeBron
    Johnson, Earvin
    Jordan, Michael

    I would be happy with this list, will have crazy fast breaks with excellent passing. Trash talking and hard nose defense. 3 point shooting will be somewhat lacking.

    You are just mad your team can't get to the rim on my giants, and can't bend down far enough to defend my guards. Unstoppable.
