Why are people including wing players here? Mike Miller, Korver, James Jones? Hell, even Gay, LeBron, or Deng are arguably wing players.

Anyway, defensively its Chicago. Offense goes to Lakers IMO. Depth Chicago.

Older heads (like mine) would think of front-line to be both Forwards and the Center, i.e., some GOAT front-lines would be -

Jackson, Chamberlain, Walker
Sanders, Russell, Havlicek
McHale, Parish, Bird
Garnett, Perkins, Pierce

sure, we are seeing the resurrection of the swing man - prototype John Havlicek - but that's just smart basketball

Butler, Griffin, Jordan make up a top 3 productive frontline in the NBA. Then you have Evans and Martin off the bench as two of the most productive back up bigs in the NBA. I'd say the Clippers belong in the discussion.

I'll give you LeBron, Deng, and Gay then. But Korver, James Jones, and Mike Miller are almost exclusively perimeter players.

Not only that front-line of Jackson, Walker, and Wilt...but HOFer Billy Cunningham coming off the bench. Undoubtably the greatest front-line ever assembled in the history of the NBA.

I'd go with the Memphis Grizzlies:

A bull of a low-post option in Z-Bo
A sleek swingman in Gay

Too bad Z-Bo is injured, so they haven't been together much this year.

All-time frontline?
67 Sixers (Stilt, Chet the Jet, & Jackson)
77 Sixers (Dr. J, McGinnis, Dawkins)
86 Celtics (Bird, McHale, Chief)
97 Rockets (Dream, Sir Charles, Clyde the Glide)
99 Spurs (Admiral, Big Fundamental, Elliott)
10 Lakers (Bynum, Gasol, Odom)

Once again, HOFer Billy Cunningham, and his 18.5 ppg off the bench, too. No other front-line in the history of the NBA was even close to the domination that the '67 Sixers pounded their peers with.

Grizz when healthy.

Lakers currently.

Jazz, as somebody else mentioned, most depth.

not necessarily the best, but my FAVORITE front court is Ersan and Sanders. Has the potential to be the best, in my opinion.
