    Wes Mantooth:

    Billups-Tim Hardaway
    Ginobili-Petrović
    Pippen-Pierce
    Barkley-Webber
    Olajuwon-Walton

    I don’t need to say a whole lot as everyone here knows how great most of my players were. Some we forget. So I’ll point out a few things of note:
    1. Ginobili is 5th all-time in postseason three pointers behind Curry, Allen, Klay, and Lebron. He was prolific.
    2. Walton had a crazy short career yet at certain points in certain seasons, won an NBA MVP, was first team all-defense, led the league in rebounding, led the league in blocks, and averaged 5.0 assists per game. He also did not lose a game for five straight years at one point, from the middle of his junior year in high school to the middle of his senior year in college. He was that great of a player and that great of a winner. Some are each, not many have the ability to be elite at both. Bill Simmons said no center in history had a greater effect on teammates. He also said that if aliens came to Earth and we needed to assemble a team of the five greatest basketball players to save us and our planet, Walton would be one of the five. He was that dominant.
    3. Petrović shot 43.7% from three for his career. Yep, that great a shooter. And in that brief career he still had two seasons scoring 20.0+ per game. He wasn’t just a spot up shooter. He was an offensive stud.

    Currently tied. If I count correctly without looking it up, I have the tiebreaker 3-2.

    Dang sorry I missed voting. I would have voted for Gandalfe. The back court pairing of Magic and Jordan in combination with Russel is brutal.

    Although I find Bird to be probably the most entertaining player of all time.

    @gandalfe
    Congrats! You know I thought you were the best team by a wide margin though if I’m being honest, your opponent in the semis was also damn good.
