1.magic as pg
2.west as sg
3.Kobe as sf
4.Kareem as pf
5.Shaq as C
6.james Worthy
7.wilt(older)
8.micheal cooper
9.gail goodrich
10. elgin baylor
11. kurt rambis
12.bynum
13.odom
14. byron scott
15. derek fisher
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

A few things:
  • Kobe & Shaq would both demand the ball.
  • Imagine how Kareem would feel not being the top dog; he could barely share the limelight with Magic then, now try Magic + West + Kobe + Shaq? :rock:
  • Bynum wants a max or close to max contract and wants to be one of the Greatest Lakers ever. He will not be too happy being the 12th man in the rotation.
  • Odom already has confidence issues. Being 3rd string would lead him to suicide.

Well this is fantasy so i think both Lamar and Drew and Kareem would recognize the talent they have around them? And if this team wouldnt get along where are the suggestions
