Nash, Kidd, Hakeem, Robinson, Jabbar, and O'Neal in prime
Otto and Nicolas are current
laugh out loud y'all are overrating Kareem and Shaq
Left would win in this scenario as Kidd is by far capable of stopping Nash as Kidd is a good defender making the All-NBA defensive team multiple times. Nash, however, lacks defense in his game and would fail to affect Kidd's game. For the SG position, Green might be able to guard Mills, but Mills should still be able to hit a few 3s when Danny Green is switched on someone else. For Batum vs Otto Porter, this is very close, as both are very all around, but what many don't realize is Batum is a border line star. His all around game on offense will be too much for Otto on defense as even if Batum isn't going he will spark the team up with his play making skills. And the most important part about all of this is obviously the twin towers for each team. Looking at each, you might say 'Kareem and Shaq are better than D-Rob and Hakeem so they would make a bigger impact', headass. What you need to realize is that a DPOY is guarding Kareem and the GOAT defender is defending Shaq, which would eventually not stop them but slow them down. On the other side, Kareem and Shaq are capable on defense, but they won't be able to slow down Hakeem and David down nearly as much as they can slow down Kareem and Shaq. Convinced now?
I'd go left but Shaq's not overrated, he's really dominant and he wouldn't slow down despite Hakeem is really good at defense. Kareem a bit overrated, DRob will body him. Other than that, I agree with everything else.
Right, they have Jabbar and Shaq.
Nash - Kidd
Danny Green > Patty Mills (hurts for me to say this as I am Aussie)
Otto Potter > Batum (If your saying current)
Kareem > Robinson
Shaq - Hakeem
Nash < Kidd
Danny Green > Patty mills
Otto Porter < Nicolas Batum (Batum is a border line star)
And for the twin towers, it is very interesting, but here's the twist, a DPOY is guarding Kareem and the greatest defender of all time is defending Shaq
nice jokes yall
givin me a chuckle
Kidd plays better defense on Nash. Nash will be the main passer for the right team and will find this difficult with Kidd running around on him. Also with D-Rob and Hakeem, there will be plenty of blocks so in general the right team is weakened in shooting.
Green is better than Mills but the left team is much stronger defensively so Green would have to guard up on some other people and Mills can be that outside option.
Batum is better all-round and can Otto would struggle defensively and will find it hard to get 3s with the strong defense of the left team.
Kareem is better than Robinson and will win this matchup, but remember Robinson is a DPOY and won't let Kareem do too much damage in the post.
Hakeem and Shaq is the most interesting one for me. You have the most powerful inside and dunking player against the best defender of all time. But really, even though Shaq would score more points than Hakeem, I can't see him doing too much damage on the scoreboard with Hakeem locking him down.
Great to see I am outspoken here with most people saying right.
Kidd > Nash. Nash is a better player but would lose 1-on-1 due to lack of defense, while Kidd can defend really well.
Green > Mills by a little
Batum > Porter since Batum is better all-around.
Kareem > Robinson since Kareem can score really well, but Robinson is really great at defense
Hakeem > Shaq since Hakeem is the greatest big man defender of all-time.
lol someone is getting salty and downvoted everyone that said left and upvoting everyone that said right
