Create the best team you can from a 5 season span. E.g. 07-11 Miami Heat.

PG - Gary Payton/Penny Hardaway
SG - Dwyane Wade/Mike Miller
SF - LeBron James/Shawn Marion
PF - Chris Bosh/Jermaine O'Neal
C - Shaquille O'Neal/Alonzo Mourning

Couple more for me...

06-10 Houston Rockets (Super Yao and McGrady Rockets)

PG - Steve Francis/Kyle Lowry
SG - Tracy McGrady/Kevin Martin
SF - Ron Artest/Shane Battier/Steve Novak
PF - Luis Scola/Carl Landry
C - Yao Ming/Dikembe Mutombo

05-09 Suns

PG - Steve Nash/Leandro Barbosa
SG - Joe Johnson/Raja Bell
SF - Grant Hill/Jason Richardson
PF - Shawn Marion/Boris Diaw
C - Amar'e Stoudemire/Shaquille O'Neal

Are you going by all these guys in their peak or as they were at that point in time? Because Jason Williams was better than Payton and Hardaway at the Heat.

04-08 Lakers
PG - Payton/Fisher
SG - Kobe/Ariza
SF - Odom/George
PF - Malone/Gasol
C - O'Neal/Bynum

08-12 Lakers
PG - Nash/Fisher
SG - Bryant/Brown
SF - Artest/Ariza
PF - Gasol/Odom
C - Howard/Bynum

91 - 95 Sonics

PG - Payton, McMillan, Barros
SG - Ellis, Eddie Johnson, Gill

They recycled talent like crazy through those years.

I'm too lazy to look up everyone who played for the team in that span, but 95-99 Spurs with 99 Duncan, prime Robinson, and prime Rodman would be pretty good.

I think it's when the player was at his peak for that team in the given time span. Example in the OP, 2007 Shaq was far from the best Shaq, even in a Miami uniform, but in the given time span those were his best days as a member of the Heat, so you use him.

That probably made no sense but whatever.

Nobody could make an argument that Miami Heat Penny Hardaway was better than Jason Williams though.

Indiana Pacers 99'-03'

Rik Smits/Dale Davis/Brad Miller

the Magic you want to use (95-96) shouldnt be playing PG - kind of like the Heat's version of Payton shouldnt be confused with any semblance of tthe artist formerly known as...

so anyway everyone's a critic

maybe I'd put Wilt and Kareem together with Jerry West, Gail Goodrich and Elgin Baylor

Yea I guess it makes more sense to have a certain edition of a certain player vs prime. I guess we can do both?

96-00 Rockets

PG - Steve Francis/Sam Cassell
SG - Clyde Drexler/Cuttino Mobley
SF - Scottie Pippen/Mario Elie
PF - Charles Barkley/Robert Horry
C - Hakeem Olajuwon/Kevin Willis

Magic retired in 1991, although if you're allowed to count preseason games then I guess he's allowed in this situation.

Cavaliers 2008-2012

PG: Kyrie Irving/Mo Williams
SG: Delonte West/Shannon Brown
SF: Lebron James/J.J. Hickson/Alonzo Gee
PF: Ben Wallace/Anderson Varejao
C: Shaq/Big Z (don't feel like googling him just so I can properly spell his name)

Lebron, Ben and Shaq at the SF, PF, and C spots would make an incredible defensive squad.
