Default LeBron's supporting cast or Iverson's in 2001?

Which one's better?

Iverson had guys like Aaron McKie, Todd MacCulloch, Jumaine Jones, Dikembe Mutumbo, and an inexperienced Raja Bell.

To me LeBron's supporting cast seems a bit better. In all honesty it's hard to say, they were both pretty bad. What do you guys think?

Ty Hill and George Lynch were in college in 2001 or were retired already? Can't seem to remember.

On paper I'd go with the Sixers supporting cast, but everyone was so banged up that someone would almost be forced to pick the Cavs' cast. McKie was playing with a broken finger, Snow had screws in his ankle/foot, Iverson had a million things wrong with him, something was wrong with Lynch though I forget what. It was pretty amazing that they managed to actually take a game.

Deke was a phenominal defensive presence and one of the top centers in the league at the time.

AI's supporting cast were IMO much better fits around him. individually it's comparable.

Cavs supporting cast is better than the Sixer's offensively. Defensifely the Sixers probably beat the Cav's

Defensively, the 76ers were far superior, Iverson was close to league leader in steals that year and lynch was a defensive stopper on the wing. McKie and Snow were both solid defenders and if anyone made any mistakes one of the best shotblockers in history was waiting in the key.

The cavs play decent team defense but they really aren't that good. No one on the team is a stand out defender really and they were very lucky the managed to find 3 teams in the east who struggled with their own offense.

Offensively the cavs should be way better, but none of their players except for gibson have played particularly well. Hughes was a 20ppg scorer 2 years ago, Damon Jones was a deadeye shooter, Z was one of the top centers in the league a pre-LeBron and yet all of them play like bums. So it ends up being a wash.

All in all, even though talent wise the Cavs should be better, The 76ers manage to make the best of their abilities and end up the better team.

Cavs are much better on paper, but like the poster above said the sixers were a Larry Brown team and they were dead serious about their defense... They knew the only to even compete with the lakers was to stall their offense by putting alot of pressure on their backcourt... Disrupt kobe and fischer and then Shaq ewouldnt get the ball until. the clock had like 10 seconds on it.....After a while we were too beat up to compete and Shaq devastated us


Cavs didnt compete because they didnt focus on certain aspects well enough, like transition pts..they got alot of rebounds and they should pushed it more and tried to score as much as they could outside of the half court offense which is a Spurs strength...
