    Default Your Starting 5

    Just curious to see who people would pick as their starting 5 in an NBA game. Kind of stole the idea from the "Top 3 favorite players" thread. Here's mine:

    PG - Rajon Rando
    SG - Kobe Bryant
    SF - LeBron James
    PF - Kevin Love
    C - Dwight Howard

    Bench: Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Brook Lopez

    Coach: Frank Vogel

    If we are taking injuries out of the equation and talking about building a team that would win the most games and gel the best together
    PG- steph curry (deadly spot up guy to play off the ball)
    SG- Kevin Durant (much rather have him on the team than off and he can play SG a bit)
    SF Lebron James (he's the best player on the planet)
    PF Blake Griffin (is there a better player in transition in the NBA?)
    C Dwight Howard (let Dwight be Dwight..)

    Not having Lebron and/or Dwight is just trolling right?

    I think most of these teams would win the championship, which works.

    PG-Rondo
    SG-Gordon Hayward
    SF- Paul George
    PF - LaMarcus Aldridge
    C- Gortat

    You see my team would grow into the most dominate team in the league. All yours would flame out from old age in a couple years. I get to enjoy many years of watching them grow and develop, while you all went for instant gratification.

    Idk if I would say that...Hayward hasn't exactly shown he is a future superstar, Aldridge and Gortat will be in their thirties when the rest of that time is really in their prime outside of Rondo...it would be a good ball club...

    LA and Gortat can carry the load as veterans while Hayward and George grow into more dominate players. Rondo will always be Rondo. Infact he will probably get better with age.

    Didn't pick any of them off of superstar potential.
