    Rodney White made me forgot about Michael Jordan.

    Alright. So, I've been thinking about the kind of team I want to build (and messing around with it on NBA2k14 - not gonna lie about that!). And I need some help from the board.

    Offensively.

    -I want the best one-on-one player in the history of the game. I don't care if he's my "point guard" or not. He's going to have the ball in his hands. The best player of all time at taking his man off the dribble, getting to the rack, and finishing - or at least finishing close. He's also gotta be great at playing the two-man game with a big man. He's also gotta be great at kicking it out to open men for the 3-ball.

    -I want a great offensive center. Someone who can roll and play really well with my one-on-one man.

    -I want three guys who can spread the court out for the featured two-man game and all knock down three's.

    -Obviously, I want all five of these guys (especially the center) to be great defenders of their positions. It'd be nice if all of them could run well on the fast-break. And it'd of course be nice if all five of them were team/win-first players.

    Thus far, I'm thinking..

    I might have LeBron be my one-on-one man from the 4.
    .....Dude's I did consider:
    .....Magic.
    .....Oscar.
    .....Zeke.
    .....Iverson.
    .....E. Monroe.
    .....Wade.

    .....Dude's I didn't consider:
    .....Stockton, W. Frazier, Payton, Kidd, Nash, Cousy.

    I might have Hakeem as my big.
    .....Dude's I did consider:
    .....Wilt.
    .....Kareem.
    .....Duncan.
    .....Garnett.
    .....D. Robinson.
    .....Ewing.
    .....Big E.
    .....K. McHale.
    .....Pettit.
    x
    .....Dude's I didn't consider:
    .....Shaq, K. Malone, M. Malone, Russell, Rodman, W. Reed, Barkley, Mikan, W. Unseld, N. Thurmond, D. Schayes, J. Lucas, B. Cunningham, D. Cowens, B. McAdoo.

    I might have Durant, MJ and Kobe as my 3, 2, 1.
    .....Dude's I did consider:
    .....Dirk
    .....Reggie
    .....Bird.
    .....West.
    .....T-Mac.
    x
    .....Dude's I didn't consider:
    .....Gervin, Dr. J., R. Barry, Pippen, Nique, Drexler, Elgin, Havlicek.



    If I was going to pick a 12-man team, I think it might be:

    C: H. Olajuwon.....W. Chamberlain.....K. Abdul-Jabbar
    PF: L. James.....D. Nowitzki.....Rodman (versatile defensive stopper)
    SF: K. Durant.....L. Bird
    SG: M. Jordan.....J. West
    PG: K. Bryant.....M. Johnson

    Plus, it's easier to create this team if you allow for a bench.
