PF - Kevin Garnett
CT - Ben Wallace

6th man - RonRon

Could this team play defense or what?!?!?!?!


2 me defense n toughness r 2 different things, w/ toughness being more like mental fortitude so AI has toughness but is not a good 1 on 1 defender b/c of his size, rather he takes alotta chances on steals like smush and creates holes in the defense, kirilenko is a great defender, but I don't think u can be considered tough when u miss that many games... it's not his fault but he's just frail n vulnerable like camby, thus not tough... the others I can agree on
Billups
Kobe
Ron
marion
KG

Yeah, I like the looks of that team, especially defensively. Billups provides a 3-point threat as well.

I only make one change, put Big Ben at CT....Duncan can do everything
well....but this is the Toughness Team. You're going to need some role
players with the rest of this lineup. I do really think Big Ben puts more
fear into other player's heads than Timmy's D.

Maybe put KG at SF if you want Ben at center.

PG - LBJ
SG - Kobe
SF - RonRon
PF - KG
CT - D. Howard

This might be a good All-NBA dream team, I still like BigBen at CT for
the All-Toughness Team.......

Lebron at point? I'd take Kobe at point, Lebron at SG, Ron at SF. This is what I'd do to your lineup but thats not the lineup that would be a dream team.

I'd take:

PG Steve Nash
SG Kobe
SF Lebron
PF Dwight
C Yao
