I think the upper limit on maximum possible wins has to be a few games below 82-0 (not sure if it's closer to 72 or 82, so 80 wins might be in play). Fluky things like contest shots going in, entire teams getting hot from three, bad foul calls, etc. would prevent you from going undefeated.

A team built to win 80 plus games does not exist.

The Law of Diminishing Return, eventually all those stars are going to max out and they would not be as efficient as having some role players.

Too many chiefs and not enough indians.

You need complimentary players. I think Stockton and Jordan would work well together. I don't think you would need Magic or Payton on the floor with Jordan. I'd add Pippen and Rodman, and then Hakeem.

On the bench I'd have Reggie, Duncan, Bird, Ewing, and Jason Kidd.

You could just as easily swap any of those players for probably 30 other players, but I didn't want to just pick the biggest names.

A team full of superstar coudln't do it. Too many conflicts and inflated egos. Over the long season games would be lost because of arguments over playing time, shots, etc.

The 72-10 Bulls, with a superstar (MJ), great player (Scottie) and key role players is the best formula.

impossobru.

What the Bulls did was downright amazing and they lost to some terrible teams. The way the season is constructed with injuries, travel, back to back, and the way that other teams are composed of great players, too. Every team has a player who can light you up on a given night. Three pointers might miss, the other teams threes might drop.

That's like, what? 98% of the games? Probably couldn't even find many guys in the NBA that could hit 80 out of 82 free throws.

Look at the team above your post. That team is not losing a game, no matter how well the other teams shoots. For one, the other team wouldnt be getting many good shots off, there is absolutely no weakness.

Are players on the other teams coming from any era, too?

Because winning a certain amount of games has also a little something to do with the opposition. Creating a team that could win 80 games cannot be done without knowing any of the opposing teams.

Let's say my team plays in the current NBA and has (all in their primes):

Magic/Stockton
Jordan/Drexler
Bird/Pippen
Duncan/Malone
Shaq/Robinson

Let's say this team goes out there like a USA dream team, with players putting their ego's aside just to reach their goal. That team wouldn't win 80 games?
