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.

Kids/
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.
