Default Offseason game I do now and then. 5 tiers of players. 108 total. Build your team.

Did this a few times years ago. Lot of people made a team. Something to kill a few minutes of newsless lockout offseason time.

First let me say...

Seeing a player on a level does not mean I feel he is factually superior to one below his level. Im ranking them based on what I feel ISH posters would want to build a team. Because of that I left some guys out. Great as Baylor was if I put him on a list with Pippen...people take Pippen. But id feel kinda dirty putting him with...Glen Rice or something. Just side stepping such issues by leaving them out. A guy like Toine...better than Horry. I dont think that everyone would rather have him as a bench player on a contender though. So they are grouped together. Not by talent...by my quick ranking of what I think someone might want for a team.

Small difference from the last few times for anyone who has been here long enough to remember...



First group comes at a price now. If you take 1 of them...this is how you build your team...

1 from level 1.

2 from level 3.

3 from level 4.

4 from level 5.

For a total of 10 players. You dont get a level 2 player at all.
That is the price of starting with a Jordan, Magic, or Shaq type. You get them..and skip to level 3.




If you start your team with level 2 players...you get to go..

2 of level 2.
2 from level 3
3 from level 4
3 from level 5.

For a total of 10.



Level 1. If you pick one...skip to level 3.....



Jordan
Shaq
Wilt
Russell
Bird
Magic
Kareem
Hakeem
Duncan






Level 2


Lebron(now)
Kobe(now..)
Karl Malone
Wade(now)
Zo

Gasol
Blake(now)
Yao(prime/not made of glass)
Drexler
Arenas(prime)
Paul Pierce

Carmelo(now)
Penny(prime..not glass)
Chris Paul



Level 4:


Baron Davis(prime)

Vin Baker
Dennis Rodman

Glenn Robinson
Derrick Coleman

Kevin Willis

My bad. I'll edit it. I came back just to say it was hard to figureo ut where to put him. Healthy and at his peak...hes not a mile behind the second level guys. But im leaving him on #3.

And im surprised you didnt take Wade since you got 2 from his group.

GP/Steve Smith
WADE/Manu
Pippen/Rice
KG/PJ Brown
Mutombo/Vlade

You ain't scoring on this team.

Second unit to bring more offense since the first unit doesn't have a dominant offensive player besides WADE.

I can see floor spacing being a problem with the first unit since GP, Wade and Pippen are not great long distance shooters. That's about it though.

Something like this:

Payton (3) / Blaylock (5)
Allen (3) / Crawford (5)
Worthy (4) / Majerle (5)
Rodman (4) / Camby (5)
Shaq (1) / Mutombo (4)

eeehh...

Whoops...didn't see Pippen at level 3.

Then mine is probably
Rondo (4) / Blaylock (5)
Allen (3) / Crawford (5)
Pippen (3) / Majerle (5)
Rodman (4) / Camby (5)
Shaq (1) / Mutombo (4)

I guess...

Too hard to place. Hes sure as hell not a first level. And if hes on second...nobody would be likely to pick him. Id end up dropping him to #3 to make him a solid option and it would feel a bit wrong to have him that low.

Kidd / Bibby
T-Mac / Stackhouse
Pippen / Mashburn
Rasheed / Horry
David Robinson / Ben Wallace

I'd say this team has the perfect combination of defense and offense. T-Mac definitely gets out of the first round with this supporting cast.

This isnt my best team...id start with Jordan or Shaq..but I think its my "most likely to beat one of these other superteams" team.

Gary Payton
Ray Allen
Lebron
Dirk
Mutombo

Rodman
Reggie
Thunder Dan
Noah
Horry
Mookie

5 shooters, 7 stoppers, 3 people who could drop 40-50 any game and 5 multi position defenders. Last minute of the game. I put in

Gary
Lebron
Rodman
Horry
Mutombo

On the floor. Where do you attack? I have 4 guys who can defend 3 positions and 3 of them can defend 4 or 5 for a posession or two. Mutombo always lurking.

On offense sub in Reggie. Probably Ray. Dirk.

Lebron(always ready to find the open man)
Ray
Reggie
Horry
Dirk

You gotta stay home on everyone and let Lebron go one on one. You so much as step in his direction hes giving it up and im getting someone likely to make the shot an open look.

Less talented that most...but they make the finals in a league of these teams I bet.
