Best Starting 5 NBA History
Saw a poll this morning with MJ & Pippen by far being the best duo of all time with Shaq & Kobe coming in 2nd. Got me thinking about this well worn subject and thought to re-introduce for people to update their opinions and made me think of the value of complimentary skills and experience/chemistry under pressure.

1. Pippen
2. Jordan
3. Kobe
4. Durant
5. Shaq

Would love to hear some starting 5's that people think Vegas would actually favor over this one in a 7 game series

I'm having trouble finding Lebron on your list.

Probably a starting five that included LeBron since he is clearly a top two player ever.

re: Best Starting 5 NBA History
Well, considering Prime LeBron could play all 5 positions and is lights out defensively, I can’t start KD over him

Pippin is maybe the most overrated player ever.

re: Best Starting 5 NBA History
Granted Pippen is the one that gets a spot due to intangibles vs most heavily weighting talent - ie chemistry, versatility, experience, toughness.

Before criticizing him you might want to learn how to spell his name and go back and watch the Finals where they destroyed the Lakers and both Pippen and Jordan played individual 1 on 1 defensive at an amazing and devastating level.

To other posters mentioned Lebron, he is a top 2-3 talent ever (probably #1 strictly physical talent), but would not be on my all-time starting 5 for chemistry and toughness reasons along with never being able to develop a consistent jump shot which has been exposed over the years

One of only 3 players ever to lead seperate franchises to nba titles while being the finals mvp

Only player ever to lead team from 3-1 deficit in finals



Yeh man, good call on the chemistry and toughness concerns

LeBron has a higher career 3 point % than Jordan, Pippen and Kobe and they're 3 of your 4 perimeter players.
