Make a team from a 5 year draft period

For example, 2004-2008 drafts, 1 player from each draft to make your starting 5, you'd go something like:

C: Dwight Howard (04)
PF: LaMarcus Aldridge (06)
SF: Kevin Durant (07)
SG: Derrick Rose (08)
PG: Chris Paul (05)

Thought it'd be a fun little topic. Maybe try finding some teams that aren't full of stars like the one above, but still would be really fun teams, like:

C: Amare Stoudemire (02)
PF: Kenyon Martin (00)
SF: Shawn Marion (99)
SG: Vince Carter (98)
PG: Tony Parker (01)

Run, run, run.

Re: Make a team from a 5 year draft period

Shaq (92)
Webber (93)
KG (95)
Kobe (96)
Kidd (94)

KG can play the 3 :P


or

Dwight (04)
Yao (02)
Lebron (03)
Joe Johnson (01)
Paul (05)

Yao could even be swapped for STAT and this team will be running you out of the gym. With Yao, this team will be killing you on the pick and roll: Paul and Yao, Paul and Dwight, Lebron with Dwight, Lebron with Yao. Return of the twin towers.

To keep Ray in there though:

PG: Chauncey Billups (97)/Jason Kidd (94)
SG: Ray Allen (96)/Vince Carter (98)
SF: Grant Hill (94)/Tracy McGrady (97)
PF: Dirk Nowitski (98)/Antonio McDyess (95)
C: Kevin Garnett (95)/Jermaine O'Neal (96)

It's quite difficult to get a complete team with Ray sticking to the 1 from each draft rule, without playing KG at center.

Re: Make a team from a 5 year draft period

Some people in this thread don't seem to be follow the one-player-per-year rule.

As far as purely offensive teams go, I like this team a lot:

PG - Magic Johnson ('79)
SG - Adrian Dantley ('76)
SF - Bernard King ('77)
PF - Larry Bird ('78)
C - Kevin McHale ('80)

Who is stopping that team from scoring? Let's try to make a great defensive team as well:

PG - Gary Payton ('90)
SG - Jason Kidd('94)
SF - George Lynch ('93)
PF - Alonzo Mourning ('92)
C - Dikembe Mutombo ('91)

SF: LeBron James (03)
PF: Pau Gasol (01)
C: Yao Ming (02)

Pretty damn good defensive team. And obviously that team would go nuts offensively too.

Harper 83
Jordan 84
Rodman 86
Malone 85
Robinson 87

(Harper was an efficient 3 pt shooter and 2 time all NBA Defensive 2nd teamer so highly complementary to the team concept and I dont think I have to make an argument for the rest of the guys)
