Ranking Every Team’s All-Time Starting Five

May 20, 2020 Owen Cooper 3 min read

By: Owen Cooper

Players were selected for these teams based on the amount of time or the immediate impact they had on their team, so a player like LeBron James would not be considered an All-Time Laker. Additionally, players were not strictly held to the positions they played. The teams were ranked around a mix of overall talent, the legacy of their players, and of course some opinion as well.
