We've been doing NCAA trivia here at work since the tourney started. Today's question sparked some good NBA debate. I thought I'd bring it on the board and see where you all stand-

Q: Who are the five members of the All-Time Final Four Team?
A: Kareem, Bird, Magic, Jordan, Chamberlain

Here's where the debate began. What 5 OTHER NBA players would you choose to try and beat that squad? Here's my answer:

PG: Magic vs Zeke
SG: Jordan vs Lebron
SF: Bird vs KG
PF: Kareem vs Duncan
C: Chamberlain vs Shaq

I think that game could go either way.

Christian Leattner may have to be thrown in there... Moreso than Chris Webber ;)

you also have to take into account that the professional game is much different from college. And if you're going purely off of good college players, you'll have to throw out KG and LBJ.

Maybe I'm just confused on the whole concept...

And yes, I am post padding at this point.

It went from a NCAA discussion to a NBA discussion. Those 5 guys that made the all Final Four team are considered some of the best of all time, if not THE best 5 players to ever play in the NBA. The question was, what 5 other NBA players would you choose to play that all time final four squad?

Gotcha. I'll have to think about it and get back to you.

If I were opposing:

PG: Magic Johnson
SG: Michael Jordan
SF: Larry Bird
PF: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
C: Wilt Chamberlain

I'd run out a starting five of:

PG: Oscar Robertson
SG: Jerry West
SF: Scottie Pippen
PF: Hakeem Olajuwon
C: Shaquille O'Neal

That's a very balanced team. Amazing defensively, and wouldn't have a hard time scoring, either. Nice.
