Granted, defensively they're easily the best line-up out there but they still have a lot of good high-efficiency offense.

Outside of Butler, Leonard and McCollum I don't see much, but they do have Pop who will squeeze the most out of everyone so I may have to switch my vote

Correction, 4 of the top 20 in ppg

Leonard #9, butler #14, McCollum #20, walker #17.
Plus Conley at #29
Plus arguably the best pg in the game, and def the best pick and roll pg in the game playing for a coach that has a history of fantastic defenses and some of the most detailed PnR plays in the game.

But where's the defense?
There are a couple decent defenders there, but no real "team defense"
Some formerly good/great defense.

howard isnt exactly DPOY winner these days.
wade isnt either.

when exactly was the last time one of that team was actually on an all defense team?
lebron 3 years ago in 2014

side note my starting 5 were all on the all defense team last year.
4 of them the year before that
3 the year before that
2 players the year before that. (see a trend going forward here?)

I'm not saying my team is better defensively than yours but its offense is superior to your offense.
I would take my team in 7 and not just because i drafted the players.
