How is Shaq not in anyone’s team? No one could stop peak Shaq. Duncan in the team makes KG redundant. Duncan with Shaq would be awesome.
Depends on the team you’re playing. Shaq would have struggled on defense against a lot of today’s bigs whereas Duncan and KG were far more versatile.

I think Duncan/KG frontcourt is about as well-rounded as it gets and they would have co-existed well since Duncan did most of his work from low post and KG from high post. But both could obviously switch, as needed.

If I take 5 LeBrons can I have a couple of them spend all their time working on outside shooting and assume they get better as spot up shooters?

If we can add or improve skills, I'd take 5 Greek Freaks with a 3 point shot and just laugh at the rest of the league.

I’ve often thought about starting a thread in the baseball forum called ‘nine of who’, or maybe ‘eight of who plus Pedro’ where you had to field a complete team of clones against the other team of clones. This thread is way better.

By "best" we mean who would win the most games vs a normal NBA schedule right? And not how they'd fare against a bunch of other freakshow hypothetical lineups?

With the latter, I could see a lot of rock-paper-scissor situations with some extreme lineups.
