You're the General Manager: Pick Your Dream Starting Five

So I'm sitting around with a couple of friends and we were watching the playoffs, and I bring up the question, "Who would be your dream starting five and why?"

Mine was pretty basic and simple:

PG: Magic Johnson

SG: Jerry West

SF: Michael Jordan

PF: Bill Russell

C: Hakeem Olajuwon

I picked these five because they were all dominant in their time, Magic being one of the best point guards of our time, Jerry West the best playoff scorer in NBA history, Michael Jordan the best player to ever lace them up, Bill Russell one the most dominant power forwards to play the game (he could still play in 2009 and put up the numbers), and Hakeem Olajuwon because he was not only dominant, but he had a finesse game to go with it, an on a side note he was the only player to "own" Shaq and Patrick Ewing in the playoffs.

So who would be your starting five and why?
