    I saw that thread ranking teams based on players home towns...got me thinking. what if they ranked teams based on players that theyve had but all of em while in their prime no matter what team they were on. How would you rank the Rockets and who would be your starting line ups and the secondaires? hope im not confusing anyone..this is just for ****s and giggles......ex.

    C-Hakeem/Sampson/Mutombo/Yao 2nd or 3rd...
    PF-Barkley/Horry/?
    SF-Pippen/Rudy T./Artest
    SG-Drexler/McGrady/Kevin Martin
    PG-Murphy/Francis/Kenny Smith

    Pippen is not allowed on any such list.

    You could put Moses Malone in the PF over Barkley and Horry
    and put Tmac as the starting SF.

    Crazy.
    Drexler was only second to Jordan during their primes.

    Artest in his prime we already have enough scoring get that D in there. Plus we could be infamous for a brawl that way.

    No OT or Kevin Willis? Those two had the prototype body and size for PFs.

    Also for PGs I'd say Mark Jackson in his prime should be up there.

    Did you watch Pippen, the Rockets version of him?

    We THOUGHT he was in his prime when we signed him.

    no.

    Clyde Drexler in his prime made it to two NBA Finals and he wasn't in his prime when he was with the Rockets and won a title.

    Tracy McGrady in his prime never achieved anything except a scoring title.

    I wouldn't call you crazy, that would just insult crazy people.
