Your NBA Dream Team: No. 1 Drafts Only

Just for the hell of it, what would your ultimate team be if you could only choose Number 1 picks from the NBA draft since 1966? Pick 10 for a playoff size roster and state your starting 5.

Here's a link listing the picks:
http://www.nba.com/history/top_picks.html

-------------------------

Starters:
C - Shaq O'Neil
F - Tim Duncan
F - LeBron James
G - Magic Johnson
G - Allen Iverson

Bench:
C - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
F - James Worthy

maybe:
C - Yao Ming
F - Kenyon Martin

not a whole lot of G's and small forwards to choose from...dang, this turn out a bit harder than I thought it would.

Mark Aguirre was a damn good SF, Larry Johnson could play the 3 and was great before back trouble sidelined him, John Lucas was a very good PG, Doug Collins was an excellent G.

But yeah, not surprisingly the list is heavily loaded with C's.

Where'd Baylor come from? I did not see him on the Number 1 picks?

I saw Elvin Hayes and I read Elgin Baylor; one of these days I'm gonna learn to read.
