Default Build a team who can beat this

C - Embiid, Gobert
PF - AD, Giannis, D. Green
SF - LeBron, KD
SG - Harden, Klay
PG - Steph, Westbrook, Kyrie

Current players only and current health should be considered.

I know it's hard to beat but atleast a team that will give this team a good fight!

So you take 4 players out of the All Nba 1st team, 3 out of the 2nd team, one of the 3th, the defensive player of the year, and expect people to build a team with current players only that can beat them.

Great thread

READ "atleast who can give them a good fight".

It was actually asked to me by a friend.

It's hard especially the 3 spot. I mean who can guard Lebron and KD at the 3?

I've got

C - DJ, M. Gasol
PF - Horford, Aldridge, Towns
SF - George, Middleton
SG - Butler, DeRozan
PG - CP3, Wall, Lillard

Didn't put up Kawhi, not sure about his health.

Yeah u picked nearly all the best players. These would fight em, Curry would cry and Harden would choke, but that's still not enough. Frontcourt is too much of a difference, Kawhi might hold his own, but still at best equal. Take away LeBron and we are talking.

Not that difficult. You cannot just add individual talent and expert the team to be unbeatable.

Lebron, Harden and Steph on the court at the same time? A point guard, a shooting guard who discovered his inner point guard and a guy who just holds the ball for 12 minutes per game in the finals, destroying every chance for good ball movement?

Replace Steph with Westbrook and it gets even worse. Imagine him and Lebron waiting for the defensive board, boxing each other out. That would be golden

So a team with the 5 best players in the world, and by pretty much any measure 12 of the top 20, and we're supposed to field a team against that with only current players?

Terrible thread

Assuming he's back. He can guard anyone on that team outside of Embiid, he'll have to double him with 2 Kawhis if they post him up.

Very good roster especially Jrue on 1. Dude's going to give those 3 PGs hell on the offensive end. I was about to throw him there as well but I'm not yet solve on his offensive game.

You also have very good defensive SF and PF and a wing who can shoot from 3.

Atleast someone here still knows how to comprehend

Default Re: Build a team who can beat this

PG- Dame, Lowry
SG- Butler, oladipo
SF- Kawhi, George
PF- Horford, Millsap
C- Adams, Drummond

I'm stacking up on defense with shooting. Adams will hopefully get an advantage on the boards with his oreb. Same idea for my 2nd unit.

Brief recap of matchups if it's harden/pg, i'm putting butler on harden but if itt's klay/pg, i'm putting butler on the pg. Same for lowry.

Edit: derozan is too weak defensively. I'm going take someone else's suggestion and put in Oladpio. Now dame is my only weak defender at guard but hopefully his scoring will make up for that(wall's defense isnt great enough right now, holida's offense isnt good enough)

The hardest position to guard is 3 position.

1,2,4,5 are easy because there are plenty good defenders on that positions.

The combination of LeBron, KD and Giannis is so deadly. They can even play all of these 3 at the same time and play small ball.

The gap on how good these 3 are compared to all the other SFs (except for a healthy Kawhi) are so far.

Been thinking of Otto Porter but how good of a defender is he?

There's also Roberson but dude got no offense.

SF - Kawhi, PG
PF - Love, Horford

That team in the OP has flaws

Too many ball dominant players Westbrook,Harden, LeBron sharing 1 basketball
Weak perimeter defense
And no real stretch big whilst my team has Horford and Love

My team otoh has zero flaws and perfectly balanced but my team will still probably lose because of the sheer talent difference but i feel if they played in a 7 game series my team could definitely steal a couple of games.
