After watching Kobe's performance in Game One of the NBA Finals, a Jay-Z song went through my head:
"If you haven't heard, I'm Michael, Magic and Bird all rolled into one, cause none got more flows than young."
They're the measuring stick of greatness, each brought something unique to the game of basketball and if you could meld their skills into one person... whew!
Thinking about those players abilities combined into one super player made me think of the "create-a-player" option of video games. It's the only way you could ever see a player that skilled.
Not because you can set every attribute to 99 (which is not only cheating but lame as well) but because you create a balanced player with no discernible flaws.
So I thought I'd give it a try here using past and present NBA players.
