MARQUETTE DREAM TEAM CREATOR — 2000S/2010S EDITION

It’s a long, long offseason.

Here are the ground rules:

1. We chose the five best players at each position from the 2000s and 2010s eras, since comparing Dwyane Wade to Butch Lee and Darius Johnson-Odom to Glenn Anton Rivers and such wouldn’t be too fair.

2. Since we’re empty-handed at center and loaded at the forward and guard positions, we labeled the positions as point guard, shooting guard, shooting guard, forward, and forward.

2. Each player was given a $1 to $5 price.

3. You have $15 to orchestrate the best damn dream team the world will never see. Go!

Sure, they played (or currently play) in the 2000s and/or 2010s and were (or are) fairly good basketball players, but they aren’t the first you think of when you categorize the best at their respective positions (…YET). WE RAN OUT OF PLAYERS OKAY!?
