Just give me the Showtime Lakers and I'll be satisfied.

Moncrief was a good one...but the only reason you have him starting over MJ23 has to be because you wan't to even out the talent off of the bench right??? right???

MJ has to be in both the 80s and 90s team. Moncrief was good, but not an all-decade 1st teamer.

I'll go with:

G MJ
G Magic
F Bird
F Dr J
C Kareem

G Zeke
G Gervin (qualifies as a guard too. He made all-nba team several times as a guard)
F Wilkins
F B.King
C M.Malone

if you score the most points in a decade and you are left of the all-decade team, youd probably be pretty disapointed... poor Alex..

It's a matter of taste which two forwards you choose from King, Wilkins, English. Bird and Dr J should definitely be in.

I think I would have Rolando Blackman before I had Moncrief

I don't think Blackman should really be up there. He was good, but with no all-nba selections, how would he be in all-decade team?

first team looks fine, though i might switch kareem with moses. it's close though. i would definitely take out nique and put in charles. charles was making all-nba first teams in the 80s (think he made three of them). i might replace king with mchale too. personal preference for the more rounded, dominant low post scorer / defender and three time champ over the phenominal pure scorer.

Why would you rather have Blackman over Moncrief. Moncrief did EVERYTHING better. He scored at an equal rate to Rolando, but was a more efficient offensive player. His defense was miles ahead of Rolando's. He had better team success, and the only thing Rolando has on him is longevity. He was just a better overall player than Rolando was.

Magic Johnson
Michael Jordan
Larry Bird
Moses Malone
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Isiah Thomas
Sidney Moncrief
Alex English
Julius Erving
Dominique Wilkins
Kevin McHale
Hakeem Olajuwan

Charles Barkley(can't remember what he did in the 80's),Bernard King, and Terry Cummings were some of the Snubs.

I might have accidently overlooked a couple players. I wanted to put Moses on the first team, but I might switch him with a forward to get a traditional line-up.

Default Re: team of the 80's

here are a few reasons to give charles barkley a spot on the all-80s second team:

85 - all rookie team
86 - all-nba 2nd team
87 - all-nba 2nd team
88 - all-nba 1st team
89 - all-nba 1st team

87, 88, and 89 all star

Averages:

1986 - 20pts, 13brds, 4assts top 6 fg%
1987 - 23pts, 15brds (led league), 5assts top 3fg%
1988 - 28pts, 12brds, 3assts top 3fg%
1989 - 26pts, 12.5brds, 4assts top 2fg%

always had around 1.5 - 2 steals and 1 to 1.5 blocks
made the conference finals one year and never missed the playoffs

malone played one less season, had lower stats across the board and made 2 fewer all-nba teams (just talking about the 80s of course).

bernard king had literally 1 season (85) where he measured up statistically, and he only played 55 games that year. he made 1 less all-nba team and had less success in the playoffs.

dominique is closer. he was putting up great numbers regularly, was healthy, made 4 all nba teams (though one was 3rd team and only one was 1st team) and though he had less playoff success in total, he didn't have quite as good a team as chuck did his first couple of years.

mchale lags behind all the others in total production and individual awards because he played on a great team and wasn't the featured first option. he was the second best player on 3 title teams, a 7 time all defense selection, 2 time 6th man of the year, led the league in fg% twice, became the only player in league history to shoot 60% from the field and 80% from the line in the same season (1987 - 26 pts / gm on 17 shots w/ 10 brds) and was a 5 time all-star.
