Of course, we will never know, but it is fun to speculate.
All the teams would have plenty of offense, and when it comes to flat out scoring the ball, the 2010 team gets my vote. Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook and James Hardin are prolific scorers.
That said, the 2010 team would probably be the weakest of the era teams on the list.
The 2010 team would not be able to rebound the ball against any of the teams from the other eras. The inability to rebound off the offensive and defensive boards would be their downfall. Not being able to rebound would not allow them to use their speed in the open court, and it would give the other teams, who all have great scorers and inside scoring, too many opportunities.
It is really not a big deal, or a knock on today’s players. What it demonstrates is the shift of basketball from dominate big men, to play makers at the guard and forward positions. Today’s game is far more reliant on highly skilled, highly productive athletes. Kevin Durant of OKC and Anthony Davis of New Orleans play more like forwards than posts.
The best team on the list? I am going with the 1960s. Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain would grab every rebound in the game. Literally. And the ability to dominate the boards can make the difference between winning and losing when all other things are even.
