Over the decades, NBA has grown a lot in terms of talent and popularity all around the globe. It is due to the impact created by the likes of Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Michael Jordan, who took the sport to a global level.
As a result, we now have players from many parts of the world showcasing their talent in the league. So much so that, over the last four seasons, a foreign player has won the NBA regular season MVP award.
There are players of many ethnicities in the league. Recently, Houston-based actor/comedian Keraun Harris a.k.a. King Keraun, asked NBA fans a question on Twitter. He urged them to name a starting 5 of the best all-time white NBA players.
Apparently, the actor forgot to mention his criteria for white players. Fans were confused about whether to name players from European origins on the list or not. Regardless, many fans gave it a shot, and here is what they came up with.
Fans suggested a lot of amazing 5-man lineups in the thread. A few fans took it to another level and decided to name a great bench to support these elite lineups created.
Looking at all the answers dropped by the fans, the majority of them featured John Stockton, Luka Doncic, Larry Bird, Dirk Nowitzki, and Nikola Jokic. Apart from these 5 players, many fans also noted that Jerry West and Steve Nash certainly deserve a nod in these discussions.
At the end of the day, creating such imaginary teams is always fun for the fans. But considering that most of the players mentioned in these lineups played in different eras, we will never get to see all of them share a court together. Maybe a few fans create these rosters on NBA 2K, but that's the extent to it.
