One Player From Each Decade...... 

Post#1 » by Profound23 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 2:24 am

Make your best starting five:

You can only take one player from the 70s, 80s, 90, 2000s, 2010s

Caveats are:
-The player had to have played at least six seasons in that decade
-You must draft a COMPLETE starting five. A pure PG, SG, SF, PF, C (meaning no using something like two shooting guards and playing one at SF)

And Jordan didn't play 5 years in the 80s. I mean I don't see an issue with having Wilt as a 70s player. It just wouldn't be his best years I reckon.

Yeah he did. 84/85 to-89/90. I dunno, I didn't make the damn rules. But 3 seasons ain't enough.

Oh I missed the 6 year thing. Ignore my answer then. Don't really care enough to look into this criteria.

I mean as in he missed 5 seasons in the 80s, the same way Wilt missed 6 seasons in the 70s.

Also, two of those seasons for Jordan was his rookie season and a season where he missed the entire regular season. (Wilt missed most of the 1970 season also)

Oh it was six years in the decade. Dunno how I got it in my head it was drafted in the decade. :shrug:

Shaq 00s, so Duncan out, 70sfan at PF

Seems like you're kinda screwed if you don't take KAJ at C. Theres no other powerhouse that was 6 years in the 70s.

Center - KAJ (70s)
PF - Larry Bird (80s)
SF- Lebron James (00s)
SG- Michael Jordan (90s)
PG- Steph Curry (10s)

If theres an issue with Bird being in the PF spot, which I dont think there should be...

C - KAJ (70s)
PF - TD (00s)
SF - LBJ (10s)
SG - Jordan (90s)
PG - Magic (80s)
