    Hakeem would be left open to shoot jumpers and be eliminated?

    And then you have Lebron as your finalist?

    lol

    I would take Hakeem's jumper over Lebron's inconsistent jumper.

    Dream shake, one of the most lethal shots in the NBA history, was a jumper.

    There is a reason Lebron sucked in the finals against the Mavs and got embarrassed.

    His jumper was broken.

    Lebron's jumper being unreliable isnt just an opinion. Him struggling and sucking in the finals against the Mavs because of his broken jumper wasnt just an opinion either. Those are facts and it happened.

    Spurs have given Lebron his jumper as well and have had great success with the strategy. Again, not just an opionion. It actually happened.

    Hakeem's jumper, the dream shake fade away, being one of the most unarguable shots in the game, isnt just my opinion either. It was well known by people that have followed the NBA.

    Your "opinions" , OTOH, are umm.....yeah....lol

    LeBron can guard and actually defend any position on the floor. He can also score from anywhere on the floor. Based on his body and athleticism alone, I’d have to go Lebron.

    I feel like he’s the only one who you could have 5 of on the court and could fit each position almost completely naturally. We know he can handle the ball, we know he can shoot, we know he can post up, we know he can score from anywhere.

    I’m not a LeBron fan whatsoever, but I feel like he’s by far the best choice.

    most of the all time greats in PF and SF would be interesting 5s.

    Duncan, Webber, Barkley, Hill.

    And I'm surprised Tmac is not getting mention here. Prime Tmac is as good as it gets.

    Right, this is what I started to think about regarding Hakeem too, like no one is going to be able to play defense like him... and passing isn't an issue. Hakeem moved like a guard. So then I think it comes down to who's officiating the game... some stupid phantom/ticky-tack fouls could ruin the fun.

    Could he be on the bench? And another 5 players be selected so he could get to the next round? :)

    Curry can't guard Harden. How much Hardens could guard Curry is a question, but for Curry guarding Harden we know the answer.
    Besides the Five Antenekoumpo's beat the Curry's in the previous round, so the Hardens wouldn't have to face them. :)

    Hey...idea! Set up a bracket with the various proposed teams!

    In a winner take all like the 4th quarter of the recent ASG, I'm taking a team consisting of Larry Bird. Cerebral, high motor, got range, clutch shot maker, playmaker and demonstrated that apex mentality on the court.

    Diminishing returns, people. 5 LeBron's can't share 1 ball. 5 MJs don't have enough range. Kobe's FG% is terrible.

    KD is the answer.
