    Either NBA or national team.

    Croatia- Petrovic, Kukoc and Radja.

    Yugoslavia- Divac, Petrovic, Kukoc,Radja and just about the whole team

    Boston Celtics- Bird, McHale and Parish
                           - Garnett, Piece and Allen(before he left) 

    Chicago Bulls- Jordan, Pippen, Kerr, Kukoc, Rodman and Grant

      Don't forget the short-lived but unbelievable combination of Dr. J and Moses Malone.  In 1983 they joined forces and literally swept their way to a championship, not losing a single playoff game.  I can only imagine how good they would've been if they'd come together sooner.

    behind the Celtics group of the 80's, Magic, Kareem and Worthy would be up there.

    Even though I don't like the Lakers, you have to put Kobe and Shaq in the conversation. The Bad Boys of the Pistons in 89-90 were a team to remember. My favorite were Run TMC for the Warriors. Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, and Chris Mullin. Too bad they never won a championship. Go Warriors!

    You would have to go with Bill Russell led Celtics (9 titles), The Jordan led Bulls (6 titles) and then the Magic led Lakers and Bird led Celtics......in this day & age...winning is the measurement of greatness.

    Bulls - Jordan, Pippen, Kerr, Kukoc, Rodman and Grant (Ron Harper, BJ Armstrong, and a couple others)

    Celtics - Garnett, Pierce, Rondo, and Allen ( Posey, Tony Allen, Sam Cassell, Eddie House, Kendrick Perkins, Leon Powe, Big Baby Davis)
          -        Bird, McHale, Parrish, DJ, Ainge, Maxwell

    Lakers  - Shaq, Kobe, Fox, Horry, Fisher (Devean George, Brian Shaw)
                  Magic, Worthy, Kareem, Byron Scott, Cooper

    Rockets - Olajuwon, Drexler, Thorpe, Horry, Cassell, ( I forget the bench plyrs)

    You gotta give those bench players some credit as they did make a difference especially for the Celtics 08'  team which overpowered/intimidated the Lakers. I am an old school NBA fan, liked both the Lakers and Celtics, but not a Kobe fan (even though his skills are great & pretty). He's just polarizing like A-rod.
