No spacing + 15 lazy defenders + slightly above avg height = 8th seed or worse

It's obviously 15 LeBrons. That gives you the max versatility.

15 LeBron's quite easily. GOAT level athleticism paired with ATG skills.

Stiff arming and crab dribbling aren't GOAT skills

I'd have to say so far, 15 2017-18 (this season) KD's is your best bet.

He's been performing at such a high level defensively.

His shot is amongst the NBA's elites and is one of the most consistent scorers in the league.

He's 7 feet tall basically.

Passing isn't elite, but it's definitely nearing the elite for his position.

15 Lebrons would never work because you could just sell out on any of one of them thats driving and leave another wide open on the perimeter. Lebrons whole game is built on making you pay for that with an elite shooting teammate. Just force the clones to take wide open 3s all game... some days youll get blown out but on average youll win.

Bullshit.
PG: 2009 Bron
SG: 2014 Bron
SF: 2013 Bron
PF: 2012 Bron
C: 2016/17 Bron

That team has adequate spacing and defensive versatility only matched by KG and maybe a few others. People act like LeBron didn’t have years where he lit up from 3 in both the RS and PO.

That's funny because Lebron shoots better from 3 than Kobe. But I guess stats and numbers have an anti-Kobe agenda.

If I wanted to see 15 Birds play, I'd finally give Angry Birds a try. If I wanted to watch 15 Lebrons, I'd turn the TV off first.

Bron cant produce efficiently on a heavy jumpshot diet...this has been proven many times in the playoffs (most notably '15 Finals). He sprinkles in his jumpers with his layups / dunks, cant avalanche you with them. Ideally this team of clones would be somebody with lebron versatility plus jumpshooting ability to space on offense. Hence so many KD picks.
