This talent pool is arguably the deepest of all-time.

It's not a quite a super-combination of the Celtics, Lakers and Sixers (BosAngelesDelphia?), but more than half the roster is made up of players from those teams, which had combined to win the last four NBA titles.
Kareem and Moses once again would form an unstoppable presence up front. Johnson and Bird were in their primes, and Jordan was about to unleash his dominance on the NBA hardwood.
One has to wonder if Thomas would have tried to "freeze out" this rookie phenom like he did in the 1985 All-Star Game.
The second unit would have had a great floor general with Thomas and strong defense up front with Parish and McHale, as well as more than enough scoring off the bench. It was a golden era at the time for the high-scoring swingman, and this team would have included many from that era, such as Dantley, who was coming off his fourth straight season averaging more than 30 points per game. There's enough depth at this position to keep Bernard King from making the 12-man roster.
The talent pool from 1984 might have been the deepest ever. This may be the only team on the entire list that is better then or that could at least rivaled the 1992 team. There's even enough leftover talent from this era to make a stellar B-team.
