    Utah gets the Utah Jazz and ABA Utah Stars' players.

    All-European team?
    Good idea.

    Back to the original idea/exercise....

    Detroit Pistons

    Isiah Thomas
    Dave Bing
    Grant Hill
    Ben Wallace
    Bob Lanier

    Bench: Joe Dumars, Dave DeBusschere, Bill Laimbeer, Chauncey Billups, Dennis Rodman, Richard Hamilton and Kelly Tripucka (most have forgotten that he was a two-time all star and he could really fill it up).

    SF - Shareef Abdur-Rahim
    PF - Pau Gasol
    C - Marc Gasol

    Bench: Zach Randolph, Jason Williams, Rudy Gay, Jaren Jackson Jr., Mike Miller, O.J Mayo and Shane Battier.

    Seems like two concurrent teams in the same city would merit different lists. Anyway, my take on this is from growing up around Philly, where the locals view the Warriors as fundamentally the same team as the 76ers, with a one-year hiatus. The Warriors, like a lot of original NBA teams, had deep local roots: Wilt, Arizin, Tom Gola, Guy Rodgers.

    Re: NBA 2019-2020

    Well, that changes my teams a bit, but we have the time.

    The New Orleans team looks really solid, especially considering how few years it's been in the league.

    PG Chris Paul
    SG Pete Maravich
    SF Jamal Mashburn
    PF David West
    C Anthony Davis

    I thought about DeMarcus Cousins at center, but couldn't pull the trigger on only 60-ish games played. Mashburn was a surprise, but his numbers were really, really good until a knee injury derailed his career completely. This might be a top five all time NBA Pass League team. Maravich, Paul, and AD on a fast break? Yes, please.

    I think I'd move Mashburn to the bench for Truck Robinson, who played his best ball in Nola. Davis could play SF.

    ^^^^^^^^^

    Rodman should be there in place of Deng.

    I think Jimmy Butler would be my starting PG for that team.

    Re: NBA 2019-2020

    Have we done the Wizlets? I don't think we have. So it's time for the worst franchise in NBA history.

    PG - Earl Monroe (absolutely brilliant during his time in Bawlmer).
    SG - Gilbert Arenas (somebody's got to bring the scandal)
    SF - Bernard King
    PF - Elvin Hayes
    C - Wes Unseld (width > height)

    Bench - Moses Malone, Walt Bellamy, Jeff Malone, Bradly Beal, Chris Webber, John Wall, Bobby Dandridge

    Re: NBA 2019-2020

    The Dallas franchise(s) hasn't been represented, has it?

    PG Steve Nash
    SG Rolando Blackman
    SF Luka Doncic
    PF Mark Aquirre
    C Dirk Nowitski

    Yeah, Doncic is already that good. (The real question is when does he overtake Nowitzki the greatest Mav of all time?) Cliff Hagan and Cincinnatus Powell (10/10 name) from the old Chaparrals that became the Spurs in the front court, along with Roy Tarpley and Sudden Sam Perkins. A whole host of PGs in the backcourt, including Jason Kidd and Derek Harper. Michael Finley, Jimmy Jackson, and Jamal Mashburn can man the wings. They're really bad in the front court. Kristaps Porzingis, with one more adequate season, should be their best center (with Dirk moving to his natural PF post).

    I still need guidance....is it who has accomplished the most? The most talented while on the team? The most talented in their career? Knock on wood, but Doncic could tear an Achilles tomorrow, and never have any real success as a Mav. I am probably taking the fun out of it....but everytime I try to make a list, I begin to argue with myself about the parameters.

    I'd suggest it's who's done the most for that franchise.

    And respectfully, I'll disagree about Doncic. He's already the second-best player ever in a Mavs uniform. ROY, 8.1 win shares this season is better than any Dallas player except for Nowitzki and Nash. (In six seasons in Dallas, Steve Nash had 14.6 total. Mark Aqguirre had 24.6 in 8 seasons. Doncic has more than 13 in two abbreviated years.)

    Not only that, he's provided flair and excitement for a previously moribund franchise. He's averaging nearly a triple double this year. (And playing acceptable defense.)

    Besides, if not Doncic, then who? Roy Tarpley or Sam Perkins were the best choices left. (Though I guess James Donaldson was another pick.) I think that's an easy choice, personally.

    This is meant to be a fun exercise too-- don't overthink it.
