NBA Fans Debate Which Player Would Go To The Bench If Everybody Was On The Same Team: Michael Jordan, Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant Or Shaquille O’Neal

NBA fans are used to engaging in big debates regarding the greatest player of all time, the greatest team ever, the best duo, and many more things. This has become a common practice around the league and nothing points out it will stop anytime soon. 

Hypothetical scenarios have become a huge topic of discussion among NBA fans, and recently, an interesting one came up that made many folks think a lot before giving an answer. It seems like putting six legendary players together is more difficult than pitting them against each other in a 3-on-3 game. 

Instagram page "oldschool_hoops" shared a 'Kicks' post that lined up six incredible players, asking fans which one should go to the bench. This is anything but an easy task, as Michael Jordan, Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Shaquille O'Neal were part of this imaginary roster. 

Of course, many people had to express their opinion, and some of them were really interesting. 

Kobe! He coming off the bench with 40🤣

Kevin Durant and it’s not even close 😂😂😂😂

Steph..

Probably Steph

Lebron or curry

It’s not Mike, not SHAQ, not Steph, not KB24, and it’s not the 🦄 (KD). To bench with you BRON🤷🏽‍♂️

Curry. No defensive ability. Everyone on this team can score.

Hate to say it but Kobe respectfully.

Should be Curry but probably Durant for lineup purposes. Either way it’s one of those two no debate

Curry or KD..

KD

Kd

In todays game shaq, small ball

Benchin kd only because who’s size I can run Curry , Jordan , Kobe , lebron , and Shaq at 5 🔥🔥

Kobe. He’d be a great spark off the bench. A front court of James, KD and Shaq would be crazy! Jordan pulling midrange shots. Curry and KD killing it from deep. James creating plays for Shaq and MJ.

Curry

KD for sure! 😮

Kobe, duh 🙄

Im sorry those saying Kobe need to stop lying to themselves. Kobe was MJ in his prime so how y’all benching 2.0 MJ and not bron or KD🤦🏾‍♂️

Should be Curry but probably Durant for lineup purposes. Either way it’s one of those two no debate

🗣️IF YOU SAY LBJ U A HATER. THE ONLY ONE IM BENCHING IS 30.. U SEE WHAT HE DOING OFF THE BENCH IN THESE PLAYOFFS??? 👀 SHEEESH🔥🔥🔥🔥

As usual, these debates get heated and fans do everything they can to defend their point of view. Whenever we find some of these players, who always bring up controversy, we know the discussion will be incredibly interesting. It's extremely hard to pick one of these players to get benched, as there are many factors to decide why they should leave the starting lineup. It's unclear if a coach would be happy or mad that he has this type of problem on his team.
