Not one of the better ones but the 2012-13 New York Knicks had six guys that played in at least one all star game , a couple of defensive player of the year awards and a six man of the year.

Carmelo Anthony
Jason Kidd
Amar'e Stoudemire
Rasheed Wallace
Kenyon Martin
Tyson Chandler

Marcus Camby

J.R Smith

Decent team with all of them in their primes

Just judging teams by all stars is a pretty silly thing.   It depends when the person was an all star, a lot are using all stars that were faded at the time they played for a team.

None of a team's players are ever in their prime all at once.

You might as well just make it the team with the most all stars?

Read the OP. This is a hypothetical of who had the best team if all players on that team was in their prime.

Smith/
Anthony/Martin?
Wallace/Stoudemire?
Camby/Chandler

No balance on that roster at all. Good starting 5, and 2 bench bigs, but need 1-2 perimeter subs. And 1 would need to beat out jr smith for a starting job.

Funny that we are seeing so many teams from the 60s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s but none from the 70s. Must be because the talent was watered down due to the ABA.

Here's a fun one: the '14 Brooklyn Nets!
Garnett, Pierce, Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Jason Terry, Andrei Kirilenko, with rebounding specialist Reggie Evans and one-season-wonders Marcus Thornton and Andray Blatche.

Also, the '13 Heat:
Lebron, Wade, Ray Allen, Bosh, Rashard Lewis, Juwan Howard, Battier, Mike Miller, and Birdman flying around.

Here's one that might be interesting in the future, the '16 Timberwolves:
Garnett, Andre Miller, Tayshaun Prince, Kevin Martin, and Nikola Pekovic were all over the hill. This will depend on how Towns, Wiggins, Rubio, and Lavine all turn out. One to watch, I guess.

Most of this board wasn't alive in the 70's and we all know of the 60's because of the Celtics dominance.  There were obviously some great teams even for this sort of thing.  I think I mentioned the 72 Lakers.  That is the year Baylor basically retired mid-season and Chamberlain was 35.  They won 69 games and the title anyway with West, Goodrich, and Hairston all in their prime (although West was at the tail end at age 33).

99-00 blazers was pretty solid.
