When creating the ultimate NBA team, that is, if you lived in a fantasy world where money, time, and age were not factored into the equation, some positions would be easier to fill than others.

Your shooting guard would be Michael Jordan while Magic Johnson ran the point.

But who would you put at center – Wilt Chamberlain or Bill Russell? Or would you have someone else entirely? It probably depends on the era, right?

We’re making this particular ultimate NBA squad easy by restricting the era to the 2000’s.

Some starters are still obvious, but their backups can lead to a lot of debate and discussion, so when you get through the list, make sure you share it on Facebook and let your opinion be heard!
