What do u all think

I really couldn't see a guy like Walton getting near by top 5, not with Wilt or Russell to contend with. Actually Shaq would get a nod over Walton as well. I'd probably go with:

C: Chamberlain
PF: Russell
SF: Abdul-Jabbar

OK that frontline wouldn't gel well but they're the greatest three big men ever; by a fair margin.

SG: Jordan
PG: Johnson/Maravich. I dig Maravich

For the bench, let's throw on Duncan, Shaq, Cousy, Pettit, Oscar Robertson, Larry Legend and...let's say LeBron at 12th man.
cos he may get there anyway.

In my team it was a tossup between Bird or Russel for the PF position. And for centre Chamberlian was there but im a big admirer of Abdul-Jabbar. For the bench postions I would have these as backups
My Bench
C- Chamberlain/ Shap( Most dominant center ever in my eyes)
PF- Russell/Duncan(Still playing)
SF- Oscar Robertson( You would love to have a bench player who could average a triple-double every game
SG- Bob Cousy/ LeBron
PG- Pete Maravich/ Isaiah Thomas

NBA All-Time Great team

C-Wilt Chamberlin(Hardest position to choose in my eyes)
PF-Karl Malone
SF-Larry Bird
SG-Michael Jordan
PG-Bob Cousy

C-Shaquille O'Neal/Bill Russell
PF-Charles Barkley/Kevin Garnett
SF-Julius Erving/Scottie Pippen
SG-Dominique Wilkins/Oscar Robertson
PG-Magic Johnson/John Stockton

In my opinion....

There are three players who should be on EVERYONE's alll-time All-NBA team: Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, and Michael Jordan. Anyone who does not have those three on the team are either uneducated or prejudiced. The position of center is a tough one, but in my opinion the choice is Hakeem Olajuwon. He was the best defensive center ever (over 3000 blocks and 2000 steals). He had an excellent offensive game--better than Russell and Shaq. He also made his free throws, something Wilt and Shaq could not do. Power forward is even harder. I narrow it down to Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, and Kevin McHale. The nod goes to Malone, but not by much. A bigger question is what team would you choose that would work best together. Here is my team:

SF Larry Bird
PF Kevin McHale
C Moses Malone
PG Magic Johnson
SG Michael Jordan

F Charles Barkley
F Karl Malone
C-F Hakeem Olajuwon
G Jerry West
G John Stockton
F-G Michael Cooper (defensive specialist)
F Bobby Jones (defensive specialist)
