    This is just another typical click-bait type of title media use. Jordan said Curry is not a Hall of Famer yet, I don't see any problem with this statement. Curry is an active player and isn't even eligible for the HOF nomination. You can say he is a future HOFer, but is already a HOFer? Not yet.

    I did wonder if MJ would have picked Rockets Legend Vernon Maxwell just so that he'd never have to be defended by him again.

    The lack of respect for Clyde is disgusting.

    100% sure if Curry belongs to Nike, or Jordan brand he wouldn't say it. MJ choosing Hakeem solidifies my mind we would beat the Bulls with MJ during the Clutch City championships.

    I thought that other legend would be Matt Maloney. He's still on our payroll.

    All you have to do is find a team that is a bad matchup for them.
    LeBron, Kawhi, Giannis, Klay Thompson, Duncan. A great defensive team with good shooting and scoring potential. Not saying it's better than MJ's team, but it would give them some hard time.

    Good shooting?

    Giannis cant shoot from outside.

    Lebron can be suspect from outside as well.

    Duncan wasnt exactly a great shooter from outside of the paint either, and he is not better than Hakeem in any category.

    Klay would be the worst player on the court amongst those 10.

    Nothing special about that team while going against the two best players to ever play the game that had no weaknesses on either end of the court (Jordan and Hakeem).

    Hakeem, Jordan, and Pippen defense would suffocate their team offense, especially with the outside shooting liability. 3 players in Top 10 all time Steals. Passing lanes closed.

    Nah, you gotta come up with a better team than that. Too many weaknesses on your team.

    The two players I would consider replacing on Jordan's team are Pippen and Worthy. Pippen with Kawhi because he is just as good or better defender than Pippen, and a far better on offense. However, I cant blame Jordan for picking Pippen because he used to anchor Bulls defense and won 6 titles with him.

    Worthy can be placed with other forwards on individual talent and especially defense but if you have never watched the Lakers then you wouldn't know how devastating Worthy was on open court and a perfect complementary role player on offense and an all time finisher at the rim. Combined with Magic, he would just make the offense free flowing and unstoppable.

    The chemistry of your team on offense would be no where as good as Jordan's team. Magic would make the team tick.

    My All Time Team with players at their prime: Payton, Jordan, Kawhi, Garnett, Olajuwon.

    Good luck scoring on that team. Defense is king. All 5 best defenders at their positions, not only one on one but also help/team defense. That team would suffocate you. They are also all great shooters from outside (no liabilities) and every single one of them can create for themselves or others (again no liabilities). I would bet on this team against any team ever assembled.

    Worthy on an all time 5 team is absurd.

    Pippen and Legend don't belong in the same sentence

    Curry is absolutely HOF.

    Worthy top 5 ever? No, MJ.

    I can see the Pippin pick. That's his right-hand man.

    I agree with Hakeem and Magic.
