LMAO....I'm paid good money to do analytical work so this made me laugh.

You didn't compare starters because you would have gotten slaughtered so you then omitted showing the teams with old stars on their bench like Duncan because it would have made your methodology of totalling all players stick out like a sore thumb.

Is it too late for you to draft Horry and Shaq?

Andre Miller never made it to the 2nd round,
got knocked out in the 1st round 7 times with 3 different teams.

Al Jefferson only made it to the playoffs once and lost in the 1st round.

Oh my apologies. Clearly in this situation, Paul Millsap will make all the difference.

Man, you got me here. Wait, let me look at the other guys on the team:

C - Andrew Bynum- 2 time NBA CHAMPION
PF - Chris Bosh- NBA FINALIST
SF - Kevin Durant- WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS
SG - Ray Allen- NBA CHAMPION
PG - Rajon Rondo- NBA CHAMPION

Reserves:

BN: Tony Parker- 3 TIME NBA CHAMPION, Finals MVP
BN: Andre Miller- Has made the playoffs, which is more than you can say for 5 of your guys
BN: James Harden- WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS
BN: Thabo Sefolosha- WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS
BN: Shawn Marion- NBA CHAMPION
BN: Al Jefferson- see Andre Miller
BN: Tim Duncan-4 TIME NBA CHAMPION, 3 TIME FINALS MVP
BN: Kendrick Perkins-NBA CHAMPION


Besides Kidd and Odom, who on your squad has any finals experience, or done anything of note in their NBA careers?

The defence rests....

Seriously?
Paul, Evans, Anthony, Smith and Griffin have a lot of records on their name.

Yeah, seriously. Paul, Griffin, and Evans are former rookies of the year. That's the most significant thing any of them have done in their NBA careers achievement-wise. None of them have done anything of major significance in the playoffs. Chris Paul, unlike 4 years ago, isn't the undisputed best point guard anymore. Evans hasn't progressed much, if at all, from his rookie campaign. Griffin, while the current 'new' rising star, is untested in high pressure situations. Anthony has only one case of being past the first round, and is at best the 3rd best small forward, as Lebron is OBVIOUSLY far beyond him and Durant passed him by over a year ago. Smith doesn't bring anything to the table that someone on the other squads couldn't match.

Again, your team has nothing that can't be handled by the other teams. ALL of the other teams. I note that you didn't quote the entire post showing the accomplishments of Team D, because it completely and utterly destroys whatever point of comparison you were attempting to make earlier.

Most point in a single quarter (Anthony), youngest player records like blocks (J.Smith), assists (Paul).
1/4 players to average 20-5-5 as a rookie (Evans) etc. etc.

so a bunch of records that really have no bearing on absolutely anything.

a bunch of obscure records, like the spurs are undefeated on leap year day when leap year days fall on the 4th sunday of february with a full moon. in other words it means nothing!
