DAMMIT Rigas! Well now I can say it as I was alluding to it earlier, it was between Mourning and Ben Wallace for me, I went with Mourning because he's an offensive presence but defensively they're close to the same animal. Wallace in his prime early-mid 2000's was a defensive beast. Solid pick, I was going to actually pick him next. Damn you

Oh FWIW I think you have one of the more well-rounded teams, and I like that you took a defensive approach to your pickings.

Im moving Durant into my starting 5 as I really beleive he is that good.
Wow. You have a pretty brutal squad there. Pretty sick considering you have Walton on your bench and at the top of their games he is probably top 15 of all time but is dinged for his shorter injury-filled career.

Walton is arguably your best player and that is saying a lot considering you have one of (if not the top) PG's of all-time and a PF as good as just about anyone.

The only negative I could offer might be that Durant is still not at his peak yet. I'm not sure I'd argue that he is better than Dr. J and others at the PEAK of their games.

A very tough, versatile roster...you could really exploint match-ups. I love your defensive focus because most everyone on these rosters has several guys that can score tons.

Russell, Barkley, Baylor, Jordan, Stockton....yikes.

when you picked mourning i kinda had a feeling you where looking at big ben. i had ben and another guy in mind and just flipped a coin really.

being a SA fan defense is the only way to go IMO. wish they would have been preaching defense a little more the past couple of seasons but im glad they are going defense this next season with leonard. thats another thread all to itself.

Funny how Wallace cropped up on everyone's radar at the same time. Honestly I was hoping the board had forgotten him
