Who Would You Choose For Your NBA Dream Team?

MJ, LeBron, Magic? Who will be on your NBA dream team.

121210092244-nba-logo-wordmark-275-wide.story-topThe NBA Playoffs are going strong right now. Sometimes when I’m watching I wonder, “How would these players stack up against the all-time greats?”

So, let’s make a game of it. Create your NBA dream team. You can choose any five players from the history of the NBA.

If you can, try to pick a player for every position: Point Guard, Shooting Guard, Small Forward, Power Forward and Center. If that get’s too tricky, just pick the five best that you can come up with.

Here’s mine:

John Stockton, Point Guard


Michael Jordan, Shooting Guard


Lebron James, Small Forward


Dirk Nowitzki, Power Forward

Dallas Mavericks v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

Shaquille O’Neal, Center


Post your team in the comments below.

Just for fun, here are the top 50 highlights of my favorite player, Michael Jordan:
