Starting 5 From Each Decade

Saw this image today and thought it was interesting. Not sure I totally agree with the players they picked for each decade. With that said, which decade do you think is the best team from those pictured:

Iverson LeBron Kobe Shaq on a team would be a weird combo of personalities.

Replace Iverson with either Nash, Kidd, or Paul and I take the 00's.

I can name just about everyone but the guy in the Atlanta Hawks jersey between Dr J and Walt Frazier.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Drafted there. Not sure why whoever created the table would have included him with the Atlanta jersey. His best and most memorable years were with the Jazz.

Add Lebron to the 00's, 10's, and probably 20's and you'll be good to go. The best player of ALL TIME.

Yessir you heard it from me.

I never got the admiration for Isiah Thomas. He was a very good pro, but not an all time great. I know its difficult to compare stats over eras, but he's a career 45% shooter, 29% 3 pt. and 75% free throw. Good but not great. He did have alot of assists, but that was the Magic Johnson era when passing became more sexy and assists were given away more freely. He had the ball in his hands alot and should have had alot of assists. Those Pistons teams that won titles, he was a piece of that team, but I don't even feel was the best player on those teams. Joe Dumars was the best player on that team.
Stockton?? Again, I think we sometimes mistaken longevity with greatness.

Give me 5 small forwards in 2017. Every other team is irrelevant.

Bron
George
Durant
Melo
Kawhi

Try and stop it.

I like the frontcourt on the seventies team. Who would you leave off? Kareem, the Big "E" or Dr. J? The backcourt of Clyde and Pistol Pete was a lot weaker, IMO.
