NBA All-Century Starting Five

Louis FierroContributor IDecember 17, 2008

This could be possibly one of the hardest questions in sports. 

If you were given the opportunity to select five players to be in a starting lineup for the all-century team in basketball, who would you choose? 

My list may be a little off, because I can't really decide when I get down to the best of the best, But anyway, here is who I would pick:



Wilt Chamberlain.


Power Forward

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.


Small Forward

Pete Maravich, Larry Bird (that's a tough decision).


Shooting Guard

Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant (even though I don't like the guy, I can't deny his talent).

Point Guard

John Stockton, Magic Johnson.


What do you think of my list—and better yet, what's yours?

Where can I comment?
