The last time I did the top 7 NBA starting fives, but this time I am going to tell about my to 5 starting fives of all time. Number 5 is the all time 76ers, they have so many good players that I really like as players such as Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Allen Iverson, Julius Erving, and Wilt Chamberlain. As individuals they are all really good. Allen Iverson’s best season for the 76ers  was 33 points before he left the 76ers in 06-07. Julius Erving best season for the 76ers was 27 points which was good back then and now also. Ben Simmons is different because he is in his second season but this season he is scoring 17 points a game only a point better than last year but still good. Joel Embiid same as Ben Simmons he played 3 seasons but his best season is his best season with 27 points a game which is better than his other years. Wilt Chamberlain’s best season with the 76ers was 33 points but something special about wilt is that he is the first and only player to score 100 points in a game.

Number 4 the all time Rockets, they have better players than the most of the teams in this list but for top five not as good compared to the rest. James Harden’s best season with the Rockets is this season with 36 points which is incredible for an NBA player. He also won MVP last season. Clyde Drexler, his best season for the Rockets was 21 points in the same year he won the championship. Hakeem Olajuwon, the greatest Rocket of all time. His best season for them was 28 points and won 2 championship, one with Clyde Drexler. Moses Malone, his best season for the Rockets was 31 points which was pretty good back in the 80’s. Tracy McGrady AKA Tmac. His best season for the Rockets was 26 points and he scored 13 points in 33 seconds to win the game which was crazy.

Number 3 the Oklahoma City Thunder/ Supersonics, have a good all around team with dunkers, scorers, good defenders, and 3 point shooters. Russell Westbrook, best season with the thunder was 31 points 11 assists and 10 rebounds which is a triple double in 2017, and did it for the next 2 seasons. Kevin Durant, this hurts me to put him here but he did a lot for the Thunder. His best season for them was 32 points in his MVP season. Ray Allen, is one of the best 3 point shooters of all time. His best season with Supersonics was 26 points and he won a 3 point contest but for the Bucks. Shawn Kemp, he is one of the best dunkers of all time. He hasn’t won a slam dunk contest but was a runner up. his best season for the Supersonics was 20 points. Gary Payton, one of the only point guards to win a defensive player. His best season for the Supersonics was 24 points.

Number 2 Chicago Bulls, Have according to everyone have the greatest player of all time Michael Jordan. Who was cut from his high school team, and in college hit a game winner to win the NCAA championship. He was drafted 3rd behind Hakeem Olajuwon and Sam Bowie. His best season was 37 points in his 3rd season. He also won 6 NBA championships. Derrick Rose, he is the youngest player to win a MVP. Then a tragedy happened Derrick Rose tore his ACL and he wasn’t the same after. His best season for the Bulls was 25 points in his MVP year. Scottie Pippen, has 6 championships with Michael Jordan. His best season for the Bulls was 22 points. Dennis Rodman, has 5 championships with Scottie Pippen, and Michael Jordan. His best season With the Bulls was 6 points which isn’t that good but they only used him for defense. Artis Gilmore, has one championship. 5 defensive player of the years, 5 all star appearances, a rookie of the year, and a MVP. his best season for the Bulls if 23 points.

Finally number 1 Los Angeles Lakers, my favorite team of all time. They have the best players in the history of the NBA. Kobe Bryant aka the black mamba, to me the is the best player to play basketball. He has 5 championships, 1 MVP, 18 time all star, and a 4 time all star MVP. His best season for the Lakers is 35 points. Magic Johnson, is a 12 time all star, 5 time champion, 3 time finals MVP, and a 2 time all star MVP. His best season for the Lakers was 24 points. Jerry West aka the logo, he is the NBA logo. He is a 14 time all star, a finals MVP but he didn’t win the finals but he played so good they gave it to him, and he is a 1 time champion. His best season for the Lakers is  31 points. Shaquille O’Neal, is a 15 time all star, 4 time champion, a 3 time finals MVP, 1 time MVP, and a 3 time all star MVP. His best season for the Lakers was 30 points. Kareem Abdul -Jabbar.
