JMan’s All Decade Teams Since 1950

With 2k releasing their starting five for the all decade teams I wanted to put my own spin of these teams. The NBA has hundreds of talented players that have come through and stamped their legacy. It is only fair to give them the credit they deserve.

Starting 5

G – Bob Cousy
G – Bill Sharman
F – Dolph Schayes
F – Bob Pettit
