I'm surprised that Manu averaged nearly 8 assists per game.

Malik Rose somehow got way up there. Brent Barry has TWO titles with the Spurs. As much as I love them, Sean and Avery are too high. I would put Alvin Robertson over those two, and maybe even Manu.

:applause:applause:applause Or maybe we saw the Will of 2006....

But seriously how many starting 5's of all time from other teams would beat the Spurs? Lakers, Celts maybe 76ers.... not players that joined at the end of their career but of players that starred for a team.

Final Four tournament including:
LA
C - Kareem, Shaq... take your pick both have their strengths
PF - Worthy or the leftovers from above
SF - Elgin Baylor
SG - Kobe, West (small but could put it up)
PG - Magic, West

Celts
C - Bill Russell
PF - Kevin McHale
SF - Larry Bird
SG - Paul Pierce
PG - Bob Cousy

The 76's have an interesting team of:
C - Wilt (there more than Lakers so why I left Lakers as Kareem and Shaq)
PF - Moses Malone, Dolph Schayes
SF - Barkley
SG - Dr J
PG - Iverson, Cheeks depending if you want scoring or not


I think we beat 76ers to advance to the final 2 but then those are both tough outs whoever comes through the other side.

Any all time teams I have omitted? Can we beat a stacked Celts or Lakers?

I could see avery, maybe sean, but not manu. No way. At a certain point gino's success, along with his stats, trump Alvins. And manu may have been the most successful basketball player in the world from 2001-2007.

I think it's a good list, but I really question some of the order.
