If you made a 13-man NBA team based on players from each decade, which team would win?

Ok so here’s my teams.

In order to get the most variety I’m gonna put in 2 restrictions:

-Can’t have 2 of the same players. I.e I have to choose between 70s Kareem and 80s Kareem but not both
-the player must have played at least 5 years in that decade to be considered i.e the majority of the decade. So no Bill Russell for the 1950s.

1950s:
PG: Bob Cousy/Slater Martin
SG: Bill Sharman/Richie Guerin
SF: Paul Arizin/George Yardley
PF: Dolph Schayes/Vern Mikkelsen
C: George Mikan/Neil Johnston

Reserves: Jim Pollard, Clyde Lovellette, Ed Macauley

1960s:
PG: Oscar Robertson/Lenny Wilkens
SG: Jerry West/Hal Greer
SF: Elgin Baylor/Billy Cunningham
PF: Bob Pettit/Jerry Lucas
C: Wilt Chamberlain/Bill Russell

Reserves: Tom Heinsohn, Sam Jones, Willis Reed

1970s:
PG: Walt Frazier/Tiny Archibald
SG: George Gervin/Pete Maravich
SF: Rick Barry/John Havlicek
PF: Elvin Hayes/Dave Cowens
C: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar/Mel Daniels

Reserves: Dan Issel, Wes Unseld, Nate Thurmond

1980s:
PG: Magic Johnson/Isiah Thomas
SG: Sidney Moncrief/Joe Dumars
SF: Larry Bird/Julius Erving
PF: Kevin McHale/Bob McAdoo
C: Moses Malone/Robert Parish

Reserves: Adrian Dantley, Dennis Johnson, Dominique Wilkins

1990s:
PG: John Stockton/Gary Payton
SG: Michael Jordan/Clyde Drexler
SF: Scottie Pippen/Grant Hill
PF: Karl Malone/Charles Barkley
C: Hakeem Olajuwon/David Robinson

Reserves: Kevin Johnson, Mitch Richmond, Patrick Ewing

2000s:
PG: Jason Kidd/Steve Nash
SG: Kobe Bryant/Allen Iverson
SF: Paul Pierce/Carmelo Anthony
PF: Tim Duncan/Kevin Garnett
C: Shaquille O’Neal/Dwight Howard

Reserves: Chris Webber, Tracy McGrady, Pau Gasol

2010s (Note: Im gonna consider Cs as PFs since there’s no real Cs anymore):
PG: Chris Paul/Stephen Curry
SG: Dwayne Wade/James Harden
SF: Lebron James/Kevin Durant
PF: Dirk Nowitzki/Kawhi Leonard
C: Anthony Davis/Blake Griffin

Reserves: Kevin Love, Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook

These are all great teams, but I’m gonna go with 90s team if we go by ‘old school rules’ and the 2010 team if we go by ‘new school handchecking’ rules

Who, while in their prime, was the most dominant athlete at their sport?

in no order because you can’t compare sports

-Baseball: Babe Ruth and Barry Bonds

-Basketball: Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain

-Hockey: Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky

-Football: Jim Brown

-Cricket: Don Bradman

-Tennis (men’s): Roger Federer and Bjorn Borg (short lived career but amazing prime)

-Tennis (women’s): Margaret Court and Martina Navratilova (absolute beast in her prime)

-Golf: Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods

-Soccer: Pele and Diego Maradona

-Boxing: Muhammed Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson

What would be the greatest starting 5 in NBA history?

I’m going for the most unselfish team here

  1. Magic Johnson. Highest average assists in NBA history. Most decorated PG ever. Team leader.
  1. Jerry West. The reason why I don’t put MJ or Kobe here is because I want the most unselfish team. I don’t want any ball hogs or egos on this team. West is perfect. He can score (actually he averages higher than Kobe does) and he is also one of the best assisters as well. He also keeps his ego in check. He’s also super clutch and a great defender as well.
  1. Lebron James. He’s a beast both offensively and defensively. He is the all time leader in assists for his position. He has one of the highest scoring averages in NBA history at 27 a game. The King has very few flaws – and the flaws he does have gets fixed up by the other people on this team.
  1. Hakeem Olajuwon. I think anyone can agree with me that Hakeem > Duncan. Hakeem is a great fit for the PF position because he has great footwork and plays almost like a guard. He is also a monster on defense and very clutch when the time comes.
  1. Wilt Chamberlain. I was thinking of putting Russell in this spot then I realized Wilt was also a great team player in his later years. Russell was a great team player all his career… but sorry Russell, Wilt is just the complete package. He almost equals Russell in defense and WAY surpasses him in offense. I also took him over Kareem because I feel Wilt was the more dominant player (in fact old Wilt gave young prime Kareem tons of trouble). There’s just no replacement for a guy who averaged 30/23/4.
