I really hope nobody tries to argue this. I bet he'd make Dirk cry.

I think this team would probably win a championship. Considering that real life team almost went "fo, fo, fo" in the toughest era in NBA history, their modern equivalent should consequently be amazing as well.

youre kidding right?

Miller doesn't have Cheeks quick hands and defensive instincts.

Ben Gordon is no Andrew Toney. Toney was a career .500 shooter and once shot .527 for a season and .522 in another.

Doc is irreplaceable except for Lebron maybe.

Bobby Jones wasn't a starter. Iavaroni started at PF.

Howard's a helluva rebounder but he ain't half the man Moses was.

That team you put together wouldn't beat Iverson's Sixers lol.

just kidding bro but that's my favorite team of all time youre talking about.

That really is a tough task. There's so many player's on that Sixers team that we'll probably never see another of again.

I can't think of one for Andrew Toney. When he got going, nobody could stop him. He was a terrific shooter, and as clutch of a shooter as they come. He was a great athlete though. Great first step, he had a solid post game. If Jamal Crawford reached his completely full potential, was a more consistent shooter, and was a lot stronger, than he might have ended up something like Toney. Even that's a pretty bad comparison though. Maybe someone with a killer mid-range game(Michael Redd), but Toney's offensive game was so much more dynamic then Redd's.

Bobby Jones was another once in a lifetime player. Never will there ever be a player so selfless as Bobby Jones was. I guess Shawn Marion is a good comparison, but only because there's no one like Bobby Jones in the league today.

The only thing they have in common is that they're both white and can shoot the lights out.

Bird was a great passer, played defense and got his shots off the dribble.(could also say he was clutch but there's no reason to insult dirk)

Bird would **** Dirk up.

No doubt but Dirk is closer to Bird than Hedo Turkoglu.

Hell nawl Pete Chilcutt didn't start, Mario was the 3 and Horry moved to the four when Otis was traded for Glide.

Not sure if i suppose to good a good team or not, this team was bad but it had talent. Darrell Griffith was also on the team but missed the year for whatever reason any help?

1985-86 Jazz

Nash as Stockton
Wade as Dantley(wasn't a big 3 point shooter so I thought wade)
Bogut as Bailey(bit of a stretch but two forwards so...)
Boozer as Malone
Camby as Eaton
