If you could create your own NBA dream team to match up against the more athletic, the more faster, and the more stronger players of today:
Who would be your starting 5 listed by the positions?
Who would be your 2nd team listed by the positions?
Who would be your 3rd team listed by positions?

My first team listed by positions would be
PG-Stephen Curry
SG-Michael Jordan
SF-Lebron James
PF-Tim Duncan
C -Hakeem Olajuwon

My second team listed by positions would be
PG-Tony Parker
SG-Kobe Bryant
SF-Scottie Pippen
PF-Dirk Nowitzki
C-Shaquille O'Neal

My third team listed by positions would be
PG-Chris Paul
SG-Dwayne Wade
SF-Kevin Durant
PF-Kevin Garnett
C-David Robinson

When selecting your teams remember that for the most part, players have gotten bigger, stronger, faster, and more athletic over the years and decades. The list is to determine how well your team would match up against todays NBA players. Not how they would match up against players from the past.

If you think certain players from the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s, would fair well against todays bigger, stronger, faster, and more athletic, feel free to put them on your list.

@chirchri,
I have only one: Kevin Durant. That’s the only reason I watch the Warriors play while my wife is watching.

I think they met in the Finals in the mid-90's.
I seem to recall your first team's center's team winning 4-zip against your second team's center.

Jimmy Kimmel imitating Karl Malone (On second thought no.) Actually I don't even like basketball. I like watching Karl Malone sit down and talk about things though.

@Real Music,
For starters, leaving Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird off of all 3 teams is a major error - not to mention, quite short-sighted. These particular players could play in any era.

Honorable mention: Allen "The Answer" Iverson
