Every basketball has their own starting Five including a sixth man. The Disclaimer is the Sixth man cannot be on an Olympic team or an MVP at some point. This is throughout NBA history. This is always a very debatable topic, because everyone has their own opinion, but remeber my team is better than your team. You cannot stop my team, you can only hope to contain them.
Manning the middle will be the greatest player in the history of the game, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (formerly known as Lew Alcindor). He is the NBA's alltime leader scorer and developed the most impossible shot to stop - the sky hook. Jabbar and any 4 other players would be tough to stop.
Now some people have Duncan as a center, but I believe he is listed as a PF. He is a winner, a proven winner. He does everything right, he is a fundamentally sound as a player can get. Not flashy at all, but no big deal, because when the game is on the line he comes through more often than not.
He is the best player in the league right now, I will argue that with anyone, yeah even Kobe Bryant. LeBron has already been to the NBA Finals, and he is only 24. He is the most exciting player in the game. He is the runaway frieght-train, flight 23, it seems like he could dunk from anywhere. He is also an extremely good passer, he sees the floor very well. And most important he is supposedly a great teammate, people love him. What else can I say?
Even though Jordan is not the best player in NBA history he is top 3. As you will find out I do not think Jordan is overrated but I do not believe his hype. If you want to know why I will let you know why. He is a Hall of Famer, thought by some as the G.O.A.T. He is the ultimate competitor. He is the guy you always want on you team, but hate to play against.
He did everything a team needed, if you needed someone to score, he scored, rebound? he'd rebound. Assist?? you got it. He average a triple double in one season. The man was ridiculous. He also was an NBA champoinship.
One of the greatest showman in NBA history. He is college basketballs most prolific scorer. "They don't pay you $1 million, for a two-handed chess pass." - Pete Maravich
