Shaquille O'Neal Approves The Best All-Time Team Featuring Himself, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, And Allen Iverson

Over the years, many great athletes have played in the NBA. While each era has had its own best players, fans have always wondered what the best NBA All-Time team is. Featuring amazing players like Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James.

Well, Shaquille O'Neal posted an image on his Instagram stories approving of an NBA All-Time team. The team consists of Shaquille O'Neal, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Allen Iverson.

Talking about each player in this image, they have achieved a lot on their own. By the way, Shaq has already played with Kobe and LeBron during his career.

He won three out of his four rings with the Mamba while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. As for his tenure with LBJ and the Cleveland Cavaliers, Shaq was already out of his prime at the time and was a shell of his previous self. 

But for the above-mentioned hypothetical scenario, each player will be in the prime of their careers. 

Keeping that in mind, the formation would look something like this: Allen Iverson at point guard, Michael Jordan at Shooting Guard, Kobe Bryant at Small Forward, LeBron James at Power Forward, and Shaquille O'Neal at Center.

This imaginary team is amazing at both the offensive and the defensive end of the court.

Be it inside the box, mid-range, or from beyond the arc, this team will be able to handle it perfectly in each department. Additionally, the insane passing ability of LeBron James will play a vital role for the team.

As for defense, Shaq, Kobe, and MJ are considered outstanding at their respective positions when it comes to locking up opponents. So the opposing team will have a hard time in scoring too.

At the end of the day, it is a dream for us NBA fans that will never come true. For starters, four out of the five players in the image have already retired from the NBA. Moreover, they played in different eras, and at the time, super teams weren't that common. So it would have been impossible to create such a team at any given moment.
