Yes i know. He would be listed at 6"10.5 /6"11 in todays NBA because they measure players in their shoes (i'm pretty sure they still do anyway). He is/was a legit 6"9 barefoot.

Exactly. I mean, let's face it, when your playing with great players, I mean the greatest players, you don't want to be weak anywhere. For instance, I love stockton, but he's getting posted up if he playing teams whose pg is payton (3 inches taller) or magic (8 inches taller), or pippen (whose 7 inches taller).

Then I ve seen some guys have jordan, kobe and wilt in the lineup, there's only one ball.

Yeah could be.However i dont think Pippen outside shot is too suspect even though lebron is not that good he is considerably better than pippen and their defense is actually pretty similar they can lock down anybody when focused and their help defense is just as good however lebron is much better offensively so i gave the nod to Lebron and bring Rodman off the bench because in his prime he could guard anybody from centers to pgs.Anyway you cant go wrong with either of them.

Indeed i still think lebron is much better offensive player and their defense is not that far off.BTW,I dont think anyone remembers who payton really is.Because i don't think as one on one defender,he literally shut down Jordan.Yes he literally shut down Jordan.I have watched jordan my whole life i dont remember any player beside payton who frustrated him.Payton should definitely be in that line-up

Anyway thats just me

Alright, but just out of interest, if you had to choose, which versions of your picks would you select?

I believe these are the six best basketball players of all-time. Not only that, but their skills complement each other perfectly: Bird and Magic's selfless team-play, Jordan's killer instinct, Russell's defense and intangibles, Wilt's rebounding (I'd actually prefer the old Lakers Wilt for this team, rather than the young Sixers/Warriors Wilt) and Kareem's unstoppable offense.

Not to be unoriginal, but this would be my 6 as well.

With no parameters set, grab the best of the best, bar none.

SG Jordan

PF Duncan
C Olajuwan

6th Garnett

That tean can shoot, pass, play man defense, help defense, rebound, post up, has size, athleticism, speed, intangibles, can switch everything, and are versitle. And all can play multiple positions.

The one thing you don't have is outside shooting. You have 3 wing players that will primarily be looking to drive to the hoop. That could be a problem if your opposition decides to clog the lane.

GOAT wise-

C- Kareem
PF- Duncan
SF- Bird
SG- MJ
PG- Magic

Sixth Man- Wilt

If I could pick my own team:

C- Hakeem
PF- KG
SF- Bird
SG- MJ
PG- Magic

Sixth Man- Lebron

I like the idea of Bron coming of the bench as sixth man for versatility reasons. He can play and defend four positions. This team is so damn versatile! And the defensive liabilities that Magic and Bird had (it never stopped them from being top 5-6 GOAT so I think it's overrated to be concerned about that to a degree) would be covered up by four of the premier and most versatile defenders of all time.

1967 Wilt. Almost averaged a triple double in the playoffs because of assists.

Led the league in assists.

I'd worry about the other two unless you picked 1962 Wilt. In which case.
