NBA Decades Fantasy Draft: Review – With the 2020 NBA Draft approaching, Go GTS takes a look back at the history of the NBA with a fantasy decades draft. Four of our scribes will pick one player from each of the 1970s, 80s, 90s, 2000s and 2010s. By Draft’s end, each will have an all-time starting five to be envied.
The first-ever Go GTS Fantasy Draft is now over, and the four NBA Decades teams have been picked. Our experts made impressive picks and it’s hard to nail down one as a winner. Have your say and name the best on our social media channels!
|James Gale||Russ Cohen||Rich Klein||Jon Waldman|
|1970s||Magic Johnson||Julius Erving||Larry Bird||Pete Maravich|
|1980s||Hakeem Olajuwon||Karl Malone||David Robinson||Michael Jordan|
|1990s||Kevin Garnett||Shaquille O’Neil||Dirk Nowitzki||Kobe Bryant|
|2000s||Chris Paul||Stephen Curry||Kevin Durant||LeBron James|
|2010s||Kawhi Leonard||Luka Doncic||Anthony Davis||Damian Lillard|
Of course, these are just four selections from each decade. The rich history of basketball, however, has plenty of other Superstars who didn’t make it to the list. Among these are:
- Tim Duncan – 1997’s first-overall pick lived up to his promise, capturing five NBA Championships, two MVP awards, 15 post-season all-star nods, rookie of the year honors and other accolades.
- Giannis Antetokounmpo – Back-to-back MVP nods are a big part of his story, but look deeper and you’ll also see the NBA Most Improved Player award in 2017.
- Moses Malone – Three MVP awards, one NBA Finals MVP nod, a Championship and eight All-NBA nods tell a lot of the story of this incredible Hall of Famer.
These and other great names have more than earned their accolades and collector demand; but that’s the great thing about the NBA – with so few players on each roster, it’s easy to identify a standout star very quickly, even on the “lesser” teams who routinely finish outside the playoff picture.
The 2020s, despite the unusual commencing year, are starting very promising. The Draft, taking place next week, the new Decade’s teams will start to take shape. We’ll see you in 10 years!
