Default Build your team

Just for fun. Consider you are the GM of an expansion NBA team. All the players are up for grabs in the draft and you can pick you ideal team. Only restriction on player selection is that your starters have to be starters on other teams, your bench needs to be made of bench players.

my choices

Starters

PG: Ellis
SG: Wade
SF: Lebron
PF Dirk
C: Dwight

Bench
PG: Jose/Bayless
SG: Carwford/Demar
SF: Miller/Pietrus
PF: Millsap/Landry
C: Sheed/Turiaf

To have a great team everyone doesn't need to be a superstar

C - Bargnani he basically has a skill set no other center has in league and 10M contract
PF- Boozer the real vetern on the starters strong defensively and offensively like 12 million
SF-LJ what is there to say 21M
PG-Brandon Jennings a Rookie obviously has potential to be great but worst case a Rondo quality player 3 million
SG Steven Curry again a Rookie low contract 3 million next year

Reserves.
C- Gortat The different deminsion from Barg. 6.3 m next year
PF-Amir strong player likely never a starter but energy and not a liability since he has cut down his fouls likely 4.5m
SF Weems again off bench can play SF and SG athletic and cheap .85
PG Jason Williams a vetern presence 1.5M
SG Odom not his position but could play 8.2M
Fillers Dragic being tutored by Nash 1.9m

About a 75million team

Why Andrea when you could have any other PF in the league?

He's locked up longterm at a good price and has a skill set no other PF has in the league imo. Him and Howard would be deadly!

BTW, why don't you grill the other ones here that have Bargnani? Just, sayin?

Lao has Amir/Bargs/Weems??? on his team. And you call me a homer?

Cause you're more fun to call-out

If you wanted a good shooting big to play along side Howard, why not Dirk? Hes not locked up long-term, but at least hes consistent.

Well yes in away a homer but partially because of price likely would have taken Amir anyways.
Weems has skill and less than a million.
In my team Howard not needed would be a liability.

Oh whoops... I didn't read the part about the salaries. I'm probably the guy most over the cap haha.

I'd take Banks on my bench though for sure. And a bunch of minimums.

Some of the teams have almost 100 million on the starters get real.
I'm high at about 75million for full team but some are likely 125 to 150 million.
Secondly a team of allstars would be at each others throats by the end of the year.
You need one Mega Star......LJ, Kobe, or D Wade then a team around them that would benefit there style of play.

LJ has defense, scoring, assists and is durable and young. Age is factor over Kobe.
Brags because LJ would be double or tripled teamed would be a monster his scoring would go up and because of attention on LJ his rebounds would improve.
Boozer is solid package much better defensively than Bosh a vet. but not that old.
Back court Jennings would have time to mature but is a slashing point guard and likely best case 3rd option would learn and florish. Curry 3pts plus has right breeding with daddy Dell.

Odom 6th man.
Gortat is a solid rebounder, garbage scorer a opposite to brags.
Weems a very poor mans LJ.....we know his abilities unlikely to get more than 10 minutes a night.
Amir athletic, energy good rebounder, good insurance if Boozer goes down.
Dragic young cheap and been tutored by the best.

Sadly, a team of all stars will go 82-0.
Simply because all the other teams will have either fewer or no stars.
