that 90's team with a lineup of Payton, Jordan, Pippen, Malone and Olajuwon may be the greatest defensive lineup ever assembled

I think Richmond is more deserving of the 90's spot than Drexler.

I was going to say Hardaway over Payton too, but Hardaway was hurt a lot and Payton was dominant for about 6 years of the decade.

Should we make each one of these all-decade teams into a vote and then revisit this thread with new rosters?

I don't like threads like this when there's duplicate players. Yes Shaquille played in the 90's, but he made his legacy in the 2000s and should be counted as a 2000 player. Same with Jordan in the 90's.

both those guys were dominant in both decades though

unlike Kareem say who while great in the 80s was 6 time league MVP in the 70s

True. But it's pretty much always clear what decade a player dominated. Duplicating players in these threads omits deserving players and presents too many "player A vs older player A" scenarios.

No disrespect to the others but think about 2000 Shaq and 2003 Duncan on the same team. Would be incredibly impossible to deal with, let's not count these guys out cause we love the 90's.
