    Hey why not. Everyone else started their threads on individual positions so I combined em.

    C-Shaq - Most Dominant Big Man In The Game
    PF - Tim Duncan - Like a Shaq, except thinner.
    SF- Kevin Garnett - Like a VERY thin Shaq minus the back-down low post game.
    SG - Allen Iverson - Most intense, dedicated player in the L.
    PG - Jason Kidd - Makes every1 around him better.

    6th Man - Hmmmm, I dunno......could've been Mobes but he moved. Right now its a toss-up between anybody and everybody.

    Gotta agree with you there, except in the backcourt.

    At SG, I'd take Kobe, but it's close between him, McGrady, and Carter. If I'm making a dream team, I don't consider Iverson at all due to his strengths not meshing well (in my view), but he's a fair choice as best overall.

    At PG, I'd take Payton. Kidd may be the better player for a dream team, but Payton is the mose complete point in the game today. Francis isn't far away, and Kidd does have to merit some consideration.

    Okay, Im going to put some people out of their natural positions, but this lineup rocks

    PG-Kobe Bryant-he can handle this job, and at 6-7 has the height to post up and school every PG in the league. Quickness is not a probable on the Defensive side

    SG-Tracy McGrady-this kid is just phenominal. Arguably the top player the game.

    SF- Kevin Garnett- what else can you say about him??

    PF-Tim Duncan-He can hold the top PF's and score on the best

    C- Shaq daddy!!

    I would love to see this team play in the Olympics

    PG - Avery Johnson
    SG - Tariq Abdul-Wahad
    SF - Ryan Bowen
    PF - Antonio McDyess
    C - Um........I guess Zendon Hamilton

    Oh wait, I thought it said "CBA's Best Players". My mistake. After tonight's game, it was an easy mistake to make.

    PG - Jason Kidd
    SG - Tracy McGrady
    SF - Kevin Garnett
    PF - Tim Duncan
    C - Shaquille O'Neal

    This is an easy one, no doubt in my eyes:

    C: Shaq, the best center ever
    PF: Duncan, Webber isn't good enough
    SF: Garnett, just a little bit better than Nowitzki
    SG: Kobe, he is the best defensive SG, and offensive.......
    PG: Francis, without his migraine

    This is the only team that could beat the Lakers :)

    C: Shaq
    Pf: Duncan
    Sf: Garnett
    Sg: Bryant (not Iversen, he hasn't got a clue when he's shooting too much, and shoots like what, 37%?? :eek: )
    Pg: Kidd (come on NCSTATEFAN, Bryant at Pg????? :confused: )

    Center. SHAQ. Until that toe of his makes him retire early.

    Power forward. WEBBER. Because Duncan should be a center.

    Small forward. GARNETT. New rules give him new spot. Dribbles, passes, shoots, blocks shots, gets the crowd involved.

    Shooting guard. BRYANT. I can't stand the punk, but if he was a Rocket, I'd love him.

    Point guard. KIDD. No contest. Turns chicken s**t into chicken soup.

    PG : Kidd - despite my prostetations that he is overrated, he is still the best PG in the game.
    SG : McGrady - Closest thing to Erving we have in the league nowadays.
    SF : Pierce - All-around player. I love watching him play.
    PF : Garnett - So close to being the best player in the game.
    C : O'Neal - Like a freight train.

    Shaq - C
    Duncan - PF
    Garnett - SF
    Bryant - SG
    Payton - PG

    6th man - McGrady

    I do agree that Duncan is better at center. I'm also impressed that no one chose Carter or Jordan. I agree totally.

    c- Shaq. . . but I would take Mourning or deke to build around before shaq. Shaq lacks the D of a great big man
    pf-Webber, he does a lot
    sf- this is my own personal bias, but I really like pedra S. He works hard!
    sg- Mcgrady, He is the best sg in the leauge, does it all. . BY HIMSELF
    pg- Kidd, is pass first, pass second thats what i like to see
