Best collection of talent at one position, same team, same time 

Post#1 » by SUPERVILLAIN » Thu Nov 25, 2021 11:17 am

Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and Kevin Johnson.

These three Hall of Fame point guards played together for the Suns during 1996 to1998. Unbelievable. That's the greatest point guard depth in history. (https://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/PHO/1997.html)

So here's a question. Has there ever been more greatness at one position on the same team at the same time? Or maybe something close to it?

Just an observation. Carry on :usa:

Early 80’s Celtics had the forwards rotation of Bird, McHale, Wedman and cornbeard.

Edit: Not exactly one position, but pretty close….

Obviously not Hall of Famers but I remember when the Lakers had Eddie Jones to go with Kobe and 76ers had Stackhouse to go with Iverson at SG. Now obviously we know both of them had to go.

A frontcourt of Pau, Bynum and Odom was not to be taken lightly, even if individually the names weren't HoF powerhouses.

Also, Duncan and Robinson playing together always felt like playing with cheat mode activated to me.

yeah it's true, Nash didn't play a lot in the beginning since he was a rookie but played more towards the end of the year

Since Tim was really a center, I’m going with Duncan and Robinson ;)

presently its gotta be tatum and brown right? two sfs with the same skillset trying to coexist together is very interesting to watch. watching the other team decide who to give more defensive attention to on a nightly basis is fun.

Is it the best collection while they were all together or are we looking for the best collection of names at a position on a team at the same time?
Rest in peace Mamba. There'll never be another Kobe.

Kevin Johnson is not a Hall of Famer.

Imo, the late 90's early 00's Blazers had the most talented rotation of big men at one time, the 2000 Blazers had these guys at the same time to combat Shaq:

Rasheed Wallace
Arvydas Sabonis
Jermaine O'Neal
Brian Grant
I'm so tired of the typical......
