The Golden State Warriors are the best team in basketball and they’ve built an incredible team of five All-Stars. But I was wondering, what if there was a true super team, one similar to the Dream Team and made up of only the very best players in the NBA. I decided to build my own and this is what I came up with.
Point Guard – Stephen Curry Golden State Warriors
He’s the ultimate three-point weapon with a near unlimited range. When he gets going he’s unstoppable and his range, quick release, and handles make him basically unguardable.
There’s a reason he won the MVP this year. Harden has shown he’s a great three-point shooter who can also step back and distribute the ball when needed.
James is the best player on the planet right now and is the definition of an all-around player who excels at most facets of the game.
Durant is the best player behind James and has shown he can compete with the King. Besides being a lengthy athletic monster, he’s a deadeye shooter, especially from midrange.
He was a Defensive Player of the Year candidate this past season and is a monster on the inside. He provides the team with volume rebounding and a player capable of matching any other inside.
Backup Point Guard – Russell Westbrook Oklahoma City Thunder
He led the league in assists last year and is a great slashing guard who can finish at the rim through traffic.
Butler is an efficient two-point shooter who can step out beyond the arc, play multiple positions, and lockdown opponents on defense.
Despite his injury and issues this past year, Leonard is the only player other than Durant who can play to the level of James. That says a lot.
Passing on the 6-11 guy who can play any position on the court would be a mistake. Hello instant mismatches.
Towns is a good comparison to Davis, just with less defense and more three-point shooting.
The second splash brother is one of the best three-point shooters on the planet and also offers solid defense.
It’s always good to have a backup ball distributor, and Paul brings that along with terrific handling and defense.
Victor Oladipo Indiana Pacers
Oladipo is the definition of raw athletic power. He flies around the court on offense and defense.
George offers similar upside to Butler, just with a better outside shot.
Damian Lillard Portland Trail Blazers
He got left out because he’s a terrific high volume scorer, but I wasn’t sure how his style would mesh with the team.
I didn’t see the need to have three centers on the team when other players offered the height and greater versatility.
Similar to Lillard, I went with Paul instead because he’s a better support player.
