It's too easy to just Lebron and etc...

Let's try to make it a realistic team that could actually be attained and afforded.

Rondo
Klay Thompson
Rudy Gay
Dirk
Chandler

DKC Sacramento Kings
'14 1st - SAC, NO, CHR (prot), ORL(prot), PHI(prot)
'15 1st - SAC (LAC swap), TOR, BKN (ATL can swap), MEM(prot)
'16 1st - best of SAC & LAC
'17 1st - SAC, MIA

Well, if Rondo's going to play with Lebron, both are going to have to adjust their games.  Lebron is actually better than Rondo in what he creates bringing the ball up the court because he's the best transition scorer in the game and a tremendous transition passer who doesn't turn the ball over like Rondo does.

If I had to choose who would control the ball the majority of the time, it would Lebron.  Why wouldn't you let the best player in the game keep doing what he's doing?

Rajon Rondo
Paul George
Rudy Gay
LaMarcus Aldridge
Tyson Chandler

Trying to avoid the obvious Lebron/Dwight lineups, so I went with this.  Good floor spacing.  Rudy Gay and LA can both get hot and carry a team offensively on any given night.  Athletes at every position.  Great length, will create a lot of turnovers and subsequently a lot of transition opportunities.  Good-but-not-great rebounders at every position should make me solid on the boards overall.

Went with Chandler over Noah after some deliberation.  Noah's a better rebounder, but Chandler is an elite finisher and a better defender. 
DKC Indiana Pacers
Deron Williams/George Hill/Phil Pressey
Lance Stephenson/[George Hill]/[Tony Snell]

Not being ridiculous and creating an All Star team:

Rondo
Harden
Igoudala
Love
Chandler


Shooting from SG and PF (and SF at times).  Team can play some great defense and get out and run as well.

I talked about this a bit last year. I would model a team for Rondo off of the Jason Kidd lead nets.

PG Kidd  pass first leader )15pt 9 ast 6rb)
SG Kittles 3pt shooting guard avg 13pt)
SF Jefferson athletic sf solid wing defender (avg 18pt 6rb)
PF Martin runs floor, good defender (avg 17pt 10rb)
C  Collins solid defensive big (avg 5pt 5 rb)
bench
F Rodny Rodger physical hit 3s
G Harris combo guard
F/C Willaims

using that model, and the present day nba. My best replication would be

PG Rondo
SG Kevin Martin/Rip Hamilton
SF Iqoudala
PF Josh Smith (not my favorite but prob best fit)
C  Perk
6th Tolliver
7th AB ?


With that said. A realistic team for the post KG/ Pierce era

PG Rondo (13pt 12ast 5rb)
SG AB    (12-15pt game)
SF Green (15pt 5rb)
PF Milsap (15pt 9rb)
C  ??
6th Sully (10pt 6rb)
7th Lee (would rather have a scoring 6'4+SG)
8th ??

A big question for me is will Melo become that defensive big we will need so badly?

Easy.

Rondo
Sefolosha (43% on 3s past two seasons)
Iguodala (38% on 3s past two seasons)
Smith (37% this season)
KG

A lineup that could actually happen, maybe with an another offensive shooter/defender off the bench like Lou Williams, Kawhi Leonard, or Wesley Mathews to finish games with.

You got your 2 fast break guys (probably the 2nd and 3rd most athletic guys in the league), 4 elite passers and 1 that's above average, floor spacers at every position, two pick and roll/pop threats, excellent rebounding, and the best defense in league (elite at every position).

I'd try to go at Afflalo or Ibaka if at all possible.  Paul George would be ideal but I doubt Indiana ever lets go of him.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale

Because he has more assists? 

If James wasn't such a great scorer and focused on getting double digit assists a night, he would do it easily.

And average twice as many TOs than Rondo in the process.
