NBA Fans Build A Starting Lineup To Compete Against An Unbeatable Team: Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, LeBron James And Shaquille O'Neal

NBA fans have gotten used to thinking of hypothetical scenarios and imagining what would happen if they were as real as them. These discussions have become very popular within the community, with more and more fans trying to make their points when it comes to who is the greatest player of all time or who will be who if they ever went at it.

Start, Bench and Cut has been around for a while, but recently, some fans have been pushed to select one player they would delete from a team's history, starting with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Purple and Gold have boasted incredible players throughout their history, but this was really easy for some of their fans

Instagram page ZG Visuals recently shared another interesting graphic to ask fans to create another team to beat the squad he put together for his pic. 'Zane' used Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Michael Jordan, and Shaquille O'Neal, asking their followers to come up with a team that can beat this legendary starting 5. 

Of course, fans quickly responded to the challenge, creating some interesting squads.

While some fans took their chance to be trolls, others put up good teams that would give this squad a run for their money. Unfortunately, in these cases, we'll never know which team would have won, but it's a great exercise if you're a basketball fan.
