If You Could Have Anyone: A Realistic Approach to a Team of All-Star Caliber

Whether or not you watched the NBA All-Star game a few weekends ago, it’s this time every year where everyone, amidst talks and rumors as the trade deadline approached, wonders what it would be like if there was an NBA franchise with a roster full of veritable All-Stars.

In cities all across the country, kids playing ball at recess, twenty-somethings sitting at the bar, and office workers standing around the water cooler all wonder the same thing: What, exactly, would happen if there was a team (or teams) in the NBA full of nothing but All-Star caliber players?

It might be a slightly unpopular opinion, and you’re certainly welcome to call me a buzzkill (I’ll leave my e-mail address at the end of this column), but I hate the idea of an All-Star team for more than one lighthearted exhibition game per year. To be honest, I’m not even the biggest fan of it once per year. I’d rather watch the highlights on SportsCenter or YouTube (I am a part of the worst generation in history, remember). I’ve probably seen the game only once out of the past five years (including this year).

But that’s a different column for a different day.
