Who is your starting 5 all time?

Except for the four championships and three NBA finals MVP awards.

I was picking my players based on their skillsets and abilities, not awards. There are amazing players who unfortunately never got a championship. Barkley had the misfortune of going up against Jordan's Bulls in his Championship shot.

Barkley was a great player. I understand why his skillset may make him a favorite in some starting fives. However, I don't think one can make a rational argument to say that he was a better power forward than Tim Duncan.

Man, this is tough...I'd definitely keep that starting 5 but would probably sub Dr. J and Scottie Pippen in the SF role, as Pippen was a GREAT defender and ran perfectly with MJ.
