I assume we're not including the Dream Team? Of the teams that I saw, probably. You could make the argument for Kerr over Harper, but with Jordan / Pippen / Rodman, anyone at the other 2 positions would succeed.

You could have a point, that's a pretty good line up. ['86-'87]

Lakers. Starters: Byron Scott, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Worthy, A.C. Green

The greatness of having Jordan-Pippen-Rodman-Harper in your starting 5 is that you had 4 elite defenders all 6'6" - 6'9", 3 of which played on the perimeter.

It made switching on defense easy (similar to how GS does it today) which negates alot for space pick-n-roll/pop creates.

Back then traditional 'big-men' were prevalent in the NBA so the Bulls needed that Longley/Cartwright type of Center. But they were really at their best when teams didn't have a true Center and that Bulls team could play Rodman at the 5 w/ Kerr at PG w/ Harper-MJ-Pippen.

One would think a "best 5 ever" would have at least one ring...

Instead their greatest accomplishment is a dunk where Michael Jordan is basically photoshopped into the picture.
