Okay, now this is a fantasy thread, but I dont want any answers that dont take into consideration the triangle offense and team chemistry.
So for me the 15 players would be
starters
PG: Billups
SG: Kobe
SF: Prince
PF: Gasol
C: Shaq
6:LO
7: Ariza
8: Mike Miller
9: Jason Kidd
10: Fisher
11: Bynum
12: Luke
13: Sasha
14:Millsap
15:Farmar

73-9 without a doubt

the potential for this team is UNBELIEVABLE when things are rolling...

Alright taking into account the triangle, and the salary cap, which is $56.68 million I'll find what I think is the best team. However since there is only one team under that amount (Memphis Grizzlies), I'll keep it under the tax threshold which is $71.15 million. And limited to one rookie contract.So here is the lineup.

PG: Derek Fisher ($4,698,000)/OJ Mayo ($3,875,040)
SG: Raja Bell ($5,000,000)/John Salmons (5,104,000)/Matt Barnes ($1,200,000)
SF: Lebron James ($14,410,581)/Trevor Ariza ($2,911,600)
PF: Al Jefferson ($11,000,000)/Luis Scola ($3,142,800)/Josh Powell ($854,957)
C: Mehmet Okur ($8,500,000)/Emeka Okafor ($9,537,000)/DJ Mbenga ($854,957)

Steve Nash/Ramon Sessions/Javaris Crittenton
Kobe Bryant/Rudy Fernandez/James Posey
Lebron James/Trevor Ariza/Shane Battier
Tim Duncan/David Lee/Ronny Turiaf
Dwight Howard/Nene/Alonzo Mourning

Kobe and Duncan, the best players at their positions and both with multiple championships. Nash is one of the best PG's in the league and provides more veteran leadership. Lebron and Dwight are two of the best, most athletic young players in the league. The bench is full of players who wouldn't mind coming off the bench. Second string has a lot of young, exciting players who are known to give a lot of effort and the third string has some more veterans with championship experience who pride themselves on defense.

You could've used that same excuse with Fish, Kobe, Lamar, Pau and Bynum not being able to share shots, but I think we're doing pretty good in real life.

Lebron is the ultimate PtF (Point Foward) to facilitate the offense. He's got great shooters around him at every position in the starting lineup. Everyone plays defense in the starting lineup. They have good perimeter threats as well as low post threats. Fish, Bell and Okur work well without the ball. Our bench would be amazing. Mayo would lead the bench and is an ideal tri-PG. The bench has two guys that are currently averaging about 20ppg with their respective teams, and has a great defensive frontcourt.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
