Default Is it even possible to outscore an All-Warrior Team?

What All-time Team could match this Warriors squad offensively:


C: Wilt Chamberlain(1963) 44.8 ppg
F: Kevin Durant(2017) 25.1 ppg
F: Rick Barry(1967) 35.5 ppg
SG: Klay Thompson(2017) 22.3 ppg
PG: Steph Curry(2016) 30.1 ppg

If you double Wilt there are at least 4 guys who could all burn you from deep. The floor spacing would be insane!

Simply throwing the PPG up there and saying that would automatically make them a better offensive team is lol...

And Wilt was out of the league before the three point line, so that's also irrelevant.

LOL at leaving Magic Johnson out. His passing would increase the team's overall points.

SF - Dr. J
PF Prime Barkley / Moses Malone

or all time celtics...maybe all time bulls.

ps: replace thompson by mitch richmond or chris mullins

If you ignore positions and just go highest ppg, Lakers come really close, but Warriors would still edge them out if you start Purvis Short(28ppg) over Durant or Klay's best season.


Cohesion-wise, I dont see any combination of 5 Lakers that would beat an All Warriors team.

I don't care what the numbers say Magic>Curry, Kobe>Klay, Shaq>Wilt and that's all the edges they would need to get a victory

So Wilt wouldn't be able to pass it out to guys standing behind the three point line when he's doubled as the OP mentioned?

That's the dumbest thing I've seen on here in hours.

That adds up to Warriors +6

Hey jackass it's irrelevant because if you kept everything the same with the lone exception being you put a three point line in play throughout all of NBA history, Wilt's PPG definitely changes in that year and every other year.

Transfer those guys back to his era as it used to be and there's no three point line and it changes their ppg...

This is a bunch of speculative bullshit and to say that the highest PPG players throughout a team's history would automatically equate to the best offense/highest scoring PPG as a team, ignoring everything else I said prior to this sentence, is also idiotic.

This forum sucks for anything except trolling.

See Ca$H's post for a blatant example of why the OP is flawed bullshit.

The plethora of unmeasured and unquantifiable factors to our puny minds that go into an entire team's PPG are far more complex than simply examining each individual's PPG and arriving at the conclusion that combining all the highest PPG players automatically yields the best result. That's not exactly how that works, lol.
