In my attempt to rally the people together around the love of the game of pro basketball, I have completed my series on projecting which team can beat which in the NBA Finals and what not.
This challenge is designed to stretch your brains and compile an all-time team. But this is not just supposed to be any old all-time team. No, that would be too easy and no challenge at all.
What you must do is this:
1) Take only One player from each decade (60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's). The player must have played the majority his career in that decade to be considered (for example, Michael Jordan would qualify for the 90's, not 80's).
2) Take only one player per position, the position they have played the majority of their listed career, not how you would adjust them (for example, you cannot slide Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to PF so he and Bill Russell would play together, he was a C).
3) You can only list 3 reasons why you picked them (no one wants to read reasons all day long).
4) No ties (only ONE player per position, per decade).
5) Compare and debate away!
