    And, along with Toney and Barkley, one of the few 1980's 76ers' first round selections to positively impact the franchise significantly -- and we cannot blame this entirely on draft position, even though Toney and Barkley were top 8 selections received via previous trades. That said, nabbing Sedale Threatt in the 6th round of the '83 draft almost compensates for drafting Leo Rautins ahead of Roy Hinson.

    I did the same....think it would depend on the era/style the team was playing. I also wanted to include Nick Anderson, but he clearly would not beat out the SG/Wing options.....he was just so important to that Shaq/Penny era team on both ends of the court.

    The Raptors may have the toughest fight of any team. Which wings do you take?

    Vince Carter?
    Tracy McGrady?
    DeMar DeRozan?
    Kawhi Leonard?

    Re: NBA 2019-2020

    the Nets are formidable on the wings and solid shooting the ball:

    PG Jason Kidd
    SG Vince Carter
    SF Julius Erving
    PF Buck Williams
    C Brook Lopez

    Team Tragedy has Michael Ray Richardson and Drazen Petrovic on the bench, along with Rick Barry, Richard Jefferson and Super John Williamson on the wings. Keith Van Horn and Derrick Coleman lead (?) the bench big men, along with Chocolate Thunder. Bernard King, though only a Net for two years, was fantastic in that time.

    Lots of what-ifs in this lineup. More than any I can think of.

    Man, it's difficult to limit this Nets team to 12 players. But I'll definitely go with the your starting five; the first five bench players that you mentioned (kudos for selected overlooked/underrated Super John Williamson,btw), and round out the bench with Keith Van Horn ( a player ahead of his time, as he'd be a full-time stretch four today in high demand) and flip a coin for either Derrick Coleman or Billy Paultz as my last bench big.

    This is a much better roster than I would have imagined -- and I say this as someone that lived in North Carolina (Cary) for 19 years, beginning with the Hornets' inaugural season. Anyway, if we're going to go with 12 man rosters, I'd round this out with Okafor and Divac as bigs off the bench.

    Does Chris Paul count as a Pelican?

    I think he should. I think they also should get a claim to all former New Orleans Jazz. CP3 and Pistol Pete in the backcourt, yo.

    I mean is it the best to ever wear a uniform or the best that played a material amount of time for the organization? If it is the former, then Lebron is replacing someone (Baylor?) in the Lakers lineup....and Vince has to be considered on the Magic, Hawks, etc.? I mean that would make Patrick Ewing the greatest Sonic center in history and Shawn Kemp has to be considered for the Magic.

    My point is I do not think TMac or Kawhi get consideration for the Raptors because they were there too short of a period (Kawhi) or was not an all-star level player while with the team.

    Demar and Vince are would wear Raptors hats in the HOF bust if this was baseball.

    IMHO, yes. It's your call, but this is how I'm approaching this with my Alternate Universe series:

    - Charlotte Hornets and Charlotte Bobcats as one franchise per Rojo Rijo's post.

    - New Orleans Hornets and Pelicans as one franchise

    - New Orleans Jazz and Utah Jazz are obviously the same franchise.

    But M2 may be on to something with -- in a separate discussion from your (Bourgeois Zee) original discussion about franchise all-time starting fives) -- 'All City teams' : Read: For example, the best players/unit selected from every New Orleans franchise/team...Buccaneers(ABA), Jazz, Hornets and Pelicans.

    Re: NBA 2019-2020

    So, does LA get the Lakers and Clippers? San Diego gets the Clippers and Rockets?

    All-European team?
