Pierce as the SG.
I'll take a year or two of the decrepit, end of their careers original Big 3 and throw Pierce and Walker in with them and see what happens. Point Forward: AntoinePower Forward: McHaleSmall Forward: BirdShooting Guard: PierceCenter: ChiefBench: Dee Brown, Dino, Reggie (here in lies the flaw of my plan, but I can't find a PG for the starting team and I've got to throw PP in there...so Reggie can go back from whence he came off the bench), Dominique (just for the hell of it), Brett Szabo (gotta represent the horrible years), Billups (reverse the mistaken trade)I guess I should throw in a disclaimer that this team is not based completely on achievement during the 90's, but who I'd like to see.
I'm sorry, but an All-90s team without Zan Tabak is just unthinkable to me. Long live the Zan :-)In all seriousness, I like your suggested starting 5 on the surface. A couple points just to consider:1.) Dino played a lot more PF than he did C. I know we didn't really have any dominant Centers then (unless you want to blur the line and include the Chief), but still.2.) Other names to possibly consider for the starting lineup, or at least definitely for the bench (and I'm basing this off of their Celtic tenures, not their whole career, so 'Nique is out):Kenny AndersonRick FoxDavid WesleyBrian ShawSherman DouglasKevin Gamble
bdm, just to clarify for you.Walker is a 3-time Allstar...Not a 1-timer.
