C - Kevin McHale
PF- Len Bias
SF - Paul Pierce
SG - Ray Allen
PG - Dennis Johnson

6th man - Reggie Lewis

PG - Shammond Williams
SG - Ricky Davis
SF - Jiri Welsch
PF - Vin Baker
C - Dwayne Schintzus

With Brad coaching and a few hours sobriety they just might steal a game.

If I added Cowens and McHale to the no-can-use list...

C - Parish
PF - Maxwell
SF - Pierce
SG - Lewis
PG - DJ

...would a team like that be able to take down CLE/GS?

PG: JoJo White
SG: Ray Allen
SF: Paul Pierce
PF: Kevin McHale
C: Dave Cowens
With a bench of:
PG: 08 Rondo
SG: Danny Ainge (early 80s)
SF: 08 James Posey
PF: 12 Brandon Bass
C: 08 PJ Brown
Would absolutely kill those superteams and is a realistic one (fits the cap)

KG. McHale, Pierce, IT, DJ would floor them.  I would take Cowens, Parrish, Ray Allen, Rondo and Jo Jo to round out the rotation and my end of the bench would be Cedric and Silas.

Cowens
McHale
Pierce
Lewis
DJ

I'm surprised more people aren't picking DJ. With him, Reggie, and Pierce you would have all the pieces to cover shooters and switch at the 1/2/3.

I think (young) McHale on Lebron is a good matchup too. Barkley said McHale was the best player he ever faced, and young Barkley is pretty similar physically to Lebron now, as much as anyone could be.

We were waiting for them in the finals, they cowardly decided to play Cleveland.

Yeah, McHale frequently guarded Dr. J. He'd be another body to throw at Lebron.

How are people sleeping on Reggie??

Long, athletic, excellent defender (ask Jordan), long/midrange/driver, he was before his time.  He'd be great today.
