    5 Bird's?
    5 Wilkins'?
    5 Carter's?
    5 Maravich's?
    5 Dr. J's?
    5 Big O's?

    I pick 5 Sampson's. If his health would have held up he would have been top 5 player in my mind. Everyone has their own opinion though and that is what makes this entertaining.

    LeBron seems like the best bet.

    Garnett would be an interesting one.

    One Curry miss = death. He would have to shoot 100% in order to win.

    Lebron and the Lebrons, easy choice. Not the greatest 3 point shooter but good enough to respect. Great to elite at everything else. More size than Jordan without any hit to athleticism.

    Jordan is my second choice. Then Hakeem. Then Durant. Then Magic.

    I have a hard time picking against 5 Lebrons. His combination of size, shooting, handling, passing, oh and skill, make it hard to pick against him. I could see how 5 hakeems would be tempting though, especially on defense.

    Don’t be ridiculous. He would trade one of the Ryans for Rick Brunson or Charlie Ward to run point.

    5 Curry is the weakest lineup you could get because you would only be getting shooting. No rebounding and no defense along with zero inside game. Even a Curry screen for another Curry would be weak. In fact the screener Curry would most likely get injured setting a screen.

    5 Magics and 5 Hardens are sorta similar. Loaded on offense. 5 Hardens with the passing and scoring prowess will be scoring 200 points a game on you. 5 Magics will be scoring plenty on you as well because of post game and passing but perhaps not as prolifically as 5 Hardens. However, both Hardens and Magics will struggle on defense and will let you score a bunch as well. Both these teams will be second/third weakest team defensively after Curry team.

    5 Lebron will be a more well rounded than Harden, Magic, and Curry. It can play both ends of the court. However the entire team will be suspect in terms of outside shooting.

    If you want to take a step further and improve on 5 Lebrons, go with 5 Jordans. Complete package on both ends of the court. Offense + Defense. Post game + mid range game. The only weakness would be 3 point shooting but still much better jump shooting game than Lebron. Also, more clutch than Lebron.

    5 Hakeem is tricky to rate. If it is a full court game then not going to work. You need a ball handler. If it is a half court game, and you have 5 Hakeems out there, I feel sorry for whoever is trying to score against 5 Hakeems lol. Total domination with blocks, steals, and rebounding (both offensive and defensive). And total domination in low post scoring and mid range game. You will get everything at a dominant level in 5 Hakeems except ball handling. However the defense with 5 Hakeem will be so devastating that even 5 Jordans would have a hard time scoring against it.
