[edited] This is just a fun fantasy match-up.

In a game played for two 12-minute halves, with all the players being in their prime, who would win between the two teams?


Shaquille O'Neal, Kevin Garnett, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Russell Westbrook / sixth man: Earvin "Magic" Johnson / coach: Phil Jackson

vs.

Hakeem Olajuwon, Tim Duncan, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Stephen Curry / sixth man: Julius Erving / coach: Greg Popovich

I actually think the first team would win. If its prime Shaq and KG, who's stopping them in the paint or getting any rebounds from them?

yup, but you can argue that Durant, Westbrook and Curry are still slightly young in the league for the All-Time Great title

Shaq ~ Hakeem
Garnett < Duncan
Durant < James
Bryant < Jordan
Westbrook ~ Curry

Magic > Dr J

Quite simply Because wins as apart from 6th man at peak only at 6th man does team A win.

Secondly apart from Curry all of Team B are great defenders.
Shaq Durant Westbrook and Magic none of them are good defenders.
