That would be an absolutely terrible team.

I don't even know if you took the best seasons from all those players how good they would be.  Certainly not a real contender, but probably a playoff team (though maybe not as I'm not sure those are the best fitting pieces).

I don’t know if that team would beat any of today’s teams.  Everybody on there is pretty much cooked, although I’m surprised many haven’t gotten an NBA offer.

Bogut, Smith and Tony would be fun to watch defensively.

Go small with:

Bogut
Smith
T. Allen
Deron
Rose

Terrible spacing, though. I guess you go with Dunleavy and move Tony to the bench.

That is what I mean about the fit.  That team, even with everyone's best seasons (and Rose and Deron had some truly great seasons), is not a very well constructed team.  Maybe back in 2000 that team would be pretty good, but today I wouldn't be so sure they even make the playoffs.

I'm with this guy.

That team could not score and they would be super super slow.


You'd have better luck putting together a team comprised of players currently overseas or in the G-League.

They are certainly all trash now but no way you can say that MVP Rose, Utah Deron, 20ppg scorer Monta, D-and-grit TA.... heck even Gerald Henderson was a good player back in the days. Bogus when healthy was really good and Josh Smith was very athletic (although low bball IQ).

I actually think their best versions would be fun to watch.

Deron/Lawson/Jennings
Rose/Ellis
Allen/Henderson/Dunleavy
Smith/Bass/Sullinger
Bogut/Hibbert

Surely there are chemistry issues but talent would certainly be there.

Technically Jordan, Bird, and Shaq are FAs. Should we include their best seasons as well?

The team that you listed above is awful. They are terrible. There's a reason no NBA teams have signed them. Don't let their reputation fool you. That team wouldn't win 15 games in a full season. They would be the worst team in the NBA.

I honestly don't know if that team in their primes would make the playoffs this year.  They have virtually no shooting, Allen is the only competent wing defender, and Bogut and Hibbert, even in their prime, were slow and plodding.  Rose and Deron are a terrible starting backcourt (I mean how are they guarding anyone) from a fit perspective.  Smith is a black hole.  It would just be a terribly constructed team.

It would be, although in their prime Deron could defend, and Dunleavy had some really underrated years as a two way player.  I’m not worried at all about Prime Bogut.

But the chemistry is disastrous. Smith, Rose, Deron, Monta, Lawson and Jennings have all caused problems, and Sully and Hibbert have had their desire questioned. Would this be the most uncoachable team of all-time?

George Karl, just to up the level of dysfunction.
