I miss 90s All Star games, heck even early 00s All Star games.

Back then the All Star games were actually competetive and you wouldn't have to speculate.

Prime Shaq with Prime Duncan is too much for maybe any starting front court of any era.

What a moronic comment. So binary. If I say that Lebron's team will be harder to maximize their talent compared to the other team, then that means that Lebron's team wouldn't even make the playoff in the Chinese league. I hate fanboys.

I think some are taking this as an era vs era debate when it isn't. Gary Payton's rookie year was Magic's last and Garnett came into the league well after Shaq. We may never know what the maker of the topic starting picture was thinking when he put the team's together but if they know recent history that couldn't be it.

I agree with the sentiment that Iverson Kobe LeBron backcourt is weak teamwork wise. Magic Jordan and Payton would play far better together.


A much better 00s team would be something like

Kidd
Kobe
Durant
Duncan
Shaq

Ofcourse we can but why make the team worse? Durant over Lebron takes away the very needed defense and passing/vision from the team... only useful Durant thing would be shooting yes but then you might aswell get a real pure shooter there.... kidd however would be a better fit than AI, CP3 even better maybe, even curry maybe...

I know you hate Lebron but damn.... hate him so much you want to sacrifice your teams success and player complementation just so u dont have to see him? Lol.... Lebron is a ~ 60%fg 30 ppg scorer with top 10 all time passing skills and at prime dpoy level defense bruh... there is zero reason to pick anybody else there... no matter how much you hate him... Just makes u look like a blatant hater (and stupid).... stop...

Team 1.

On Hakeem vs Shaq in his prrriiiiiimmmmeeee.

Ben Wallace guarded Shaq a lot man-on-man in 2004. Yea, Shaq was getting his. But, Ben Wallace did a good job of containing him for his size. Also, Wallace didn't make Shaq work on the defensive end.

Now, I'm not going to argue prime-for-prime who was a better defender, Wallace or Hakeem, because I have a biased towards Pistons players.

But, think about it. You really think Shaq would utterly dominate Hakeem and Team 1, given how Ben Wallace and the Pistons played him in 2004? The Lakers had 3 players that required a double team in the post. They did a very decent job on Shaq with Billups, Hamilton, Prince, Sheed, Big Ben.

You now have Payton, Jordan, Magic, KG, Olajuwon. You have arguably 4 of the best defensive players at their position on this squad. You can sag off Lebron and Iverson at the 3-pt line and take your chances. Just like the Lakers, 3 players that require a double team in the post.

And Hakeem would tire Shaq out on the block, making him jump at fakes constantly.

I'd say Team 1 wins 7 out of 10.

Shaq lost to some Jazz teams featuring really bad centers. Maybe that wasn't his prime version, but the gap between Ostertag or whoever else was starting for Utah and Olajuwon is HUGE.

This matchup would be close.
