Hmm, that last thing with Barkley got me thinking.

PG - KJ, Francis, Cheeks
SG - Drexler, Toney, Majerle, Ainge
SF - Dr. J, Pippen, Finley, Ceballos
PF - McAdoo, Chambers, Jones
C - Hakeem, Moses, Willis

C and SF are stacked with a MVP at PF and a Dream Teamer at SG.

Parish is pretty stacked too.

PG- White, Archibald, DJ
SG- Jordan, Ainge, Lewis
SF- Bird, Pippen, Barry
PF- McHale, Rodman, Johnson
C- Parish, Walton, Gilmore, Mourning

That front court is ridiculous.  SG is a little thin but you have freakin' Michael Jordan so I think you'll be alright.

I'm declaring Rondo the winner.  You could build like three all-star teams with his teammates.

I think this list is leaving off Melo (Carmelo, not Fab) as well.  And DeAndre Jordan was no slouch at one point.

I listed Carmelo in the first post.  I don't think either of us mentioned Gerald Wallace, though, who made an All-Star game.

Sorry, it's easy to miss someone, because man has Rondo played with a lot of guys.  Imagine if he popped up in Golden State for half a season at one point.

Ha.  Give him time.  Maybe he can sign a 10-day with Milwaukee or Brooklyn at some point.

Best team mates in terms of good players or good team mates?   There is a big difference between the two.
