Id like some more bench scoring at this point, I got Durant last round, but I want another versatile scorer off my bench. It's easy to forget that this guy averaged over 25 ppg for 5 straight seasons not too long ago. I also loved playing with his team in the original NBA Jam (sega). So for my round 8 pick, Ill go with:

Spoiler



He was part of a real fun team about 20 years ago, and when you are playing "name the dream team roster" with your friends, he is usually one of the last to be remembered.

Up to date roster:

Magic
Miller
Dr J
K Malone
D Howard

Walton
Durant
Mullin

Both good picks.

Pierce has an absolute killer mentality and can score however you need scoring to come from. Mullin is perfect as a piece that can do a lot of things with other star players.

Good stuff guys.

ok so i have been a bit out of the loop over this weekend but im gonna throw in a couple of quick picks.

my next pick, i need someone who can hit the outside shot, i thought about bonner and they realized you know he fades terribly in the playoffs so im going with a real winner a guy who gets it all done, a guy who has won on every level he has played on, every where he has been.

MANU ginobili.

and with #9 i will take i will take the man who recorded the 1st official quad double. with him and worm backing up the forwards/center spots my paint is sealed tighter then fort knox.

NATE thurmond.

I flirted with the idea of taking Mullin with one of my two most recent picks. Great shooter, and shot a very good percentage considering his offensive game was pretty much perimeter-based. As you say, one of the 'forgotten' original Dream Teamers. I just found it amazing that no-one had picked Jerry West yet.

i know i cant take west, not since he gave those 2 title to the lakers via pau gasol.

we need a team list in one place, its a pain going back and forth double checking picks lol. thought orangish was gonna add it to the OP.
