Since the very first days of the league, fans and even the media have debated what team could beat the rest of the league.
The NBA has had plenty of legends in its ranks for decades. And, while some may believe that players from one era wouldn't be as good in a different time, others say that athletes and talented players would be able to dominate regardless of their rivals and even the rules.
That's what makes it so difficult to choose the perfect starting 5 involving all eras of basketball. I mean, there's just too much talent to choose from.
That's why Zgvisualz tried to do with an epic graphic featuring two unstoppable teams.
Team A has a plethora of stars in Stephen Curry, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kevin Durant, and Hakeem Olajuwon. Team B, on the other side, features legends of the likes of Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Shaquille O'Neal.
Needless to say, fans engaged in this debate for hours. Some claim that there's no way a team with Michael Jordan and LeBron James could lose. Others believe that having Larry Bird, Kevin Durant, and Stephen Curry on the same team would be just unfair. Here, we gathered some of the best comments:
Well, those teams are pretty stacked, so there's no wonder why it was so difficult for fans to get on the same page on this subject. At the end of the day, you couldn't go wrong either way.
Perhaps the most interesting part about this is that if you were to change just one player from each team, maybe the debate would be completely different. That's one of the many reasons why the NBA is so popular around the globe. There's just too much talent.
