Rose
Booker
T-Mac
Bosh
Sabonis

Also Oscar Robertson

#22 is pretty solid

Larry Nance
Dave DeBusschere
Elgin Baylor
Clyde Drexler
Andrew Toney or Khris Middleton

Can't think of a true point guard on that level, unless you want to give Slater Martin the benefit of the doubt.

By the time Ewing wore 6, he wasn’t very good

I would love to watch a seven game series with those two teams.

#32 is great but
#33 has a chance with anyone.

KAJ/Marc gasol/ Alonzo mourning
Bird/Ewing/diaw
Grant hill/Tobias Harris
Pippen/David Thompson/covington
Shareef Abdur-Rahim

Insane D and passing. Bird and shareef can stroke it. Pip and hill slash. KAJ in the paint.

I trust jazzfan, but wouldn't let 'em cut the deck. Bans number 23, then takes 12, which conveniently has Michael Jordan somehow...
"Yes because he completely turned around a disastrous 5-12 team and helped them in every facet of the game. If Melo keeps it up, he is legit MVP candidate."

He was worried about having Michael Jordan and Mario Hezonja on the same team.

Some of these other numbers look formidable too. #23 would look something like:

Anthony Davis / Marcus Camby
Draymond Green / Ron Artest
Alex English / Jimmy Butler /Mario Hezonja
MJ / Mitch Richmond / JR Smith
LBJ / Vanvleet / Lou Williams

Still missing: Jason Richardson, Kevin Martin, Wes Matthews etc. so there MIGHT be an argument to not include Hezonja, though that team probably beats everyone even with Hezonja playing
So many people who attain the heights of power in this culture—celebrities, for instance—have to make a show of false humility and modesty, as if they got as far as they did by accident and not by ego or ambition.

Came to post this. 32 is absolutely stacked with talent.

My favorite number is 4, but the team doesn't look as good :lol:

PG - early Billups / D Rose (NYK)
SG - Rick Barry / Joe Dumars
SF - Michael Finley / Danny Green
PF - C Webb / old man Barkley (rockets) / Moses Malone
C - Ben Wallace / Chris Bosh (Raptors) / K-Mart

#12 - John Stockton
#12 - Bruce Bowen
#12 - Micheal Jordan (look it up)
#12 -LaMarcus Aldrudge
#12 - Dwight Howard

That's a pretty decent squad right there. Who you got?


Ja Morant wears #12 too.
