My buddy and I went through this exercise last week. If you had to create one 12-man roster from the 1999-2000 NBA Finals Pacers, and this season's Pacers, who would make your team? Also, who would be your starting five? This is a one year only team, so don't worry about the age of players or keeping someone for developmental purposes. In addition, choose a coaching staff.

Here is the 99-00 Pacers roster, in alphabetical order:

Jonathan Bender
Travis Best
Austin Croshere
Dale Davis
Jeff Foster
Al Harrington
Mark Jackson
Derrick McKey
Reggie Miller
Chris Mullin
Sam Perkins
Jalen Rose
Rik Smits
Zan Tabak
Coaching staff: Larry Bird, Rick Carlisle, Dick Harter, Dan Burke

This year's roster:
Rasual Butler
Chris Copeland
Paul George
Danny Granger
Roy Hibbert
George Hill
Solomon Hill
Orlando Johnson
Ian Mahinmi
Luis Scola
Donald Sloan
Lance Stephenson
C.J. Watson
David West
Coaching staff: Frank Vogel, Nate McMillan, Popeye Jones, Dan Burke

Build the team the way you want, but I am going with 5 bigs and 7 wings/points. My roster:

Hibbert
Smits
Davis
West
Scola
Jackson
Miller
George
McKey
Hill
Mullin
Stephenson

The first ten were pretty easy for me. I then struggled with choosing between Mullin, Stephenson, and Rose for the final two spots. I chose Mullin for his veteran savvy, and decided Stephenson was better defensively than Rose.

My starting five:
Jackson
Miller
George
Davis
Hibbert

For the coaching staff I am going with Vogel, Carlisle, Harter, and Burke.

What about you?
