PG- Dave Bing
One of the best shooters of his time, very underrated passer and defender, his specialty was driving to the basket and then kicking it out to the perimeter where someone drained the three. A high-scoring guard who quietly triumphed over injury and went about his business for 12 seasons in the NBA, Bing was a force to be reckoned with.
SG- Jerry West
The most clutch player in NBA history, one of the best scorers and defenders in NBA history, there wasn't much he couldn't do. Also, the NBA logo, which is the highest rank of all. Combine a deadly jump shot, tenacious defense, obsessive perfectionism, unabashed confidence, and an uncompromising will to win, and you've got Jerry West, one of the greatest guards in NBA history.
SF- Bob McAdoo
A solid shooter, rebounder, defender, and a dominating big man who could play the three, four or five. He was known as one of the best shooting big men in NBA history. He could also shoot from the perimeter, and was very quick for his size. Always a dominating presence.
PF- Nate Thurmond
Many said that his defense was better than Wilt's and his offense was better than Russell's. He was one of the most intimidating defenders in the history of the NBA. Also averaged a whopping 15 boards per game. His defense was his greatest attribute, shutting down some of the greats. Great shot blocker as well. Both Abdul-Jabbar and Chamberlain have gone on record saying they felt Thurmond was their toughest adversary. "He plays me better than anybody ever has," Abdul-Jabbar told Basketball Digest when he was in his prime. "He's tall, has real long arms, and most of all he's agile and strong." Abdul-Jabbar also said, "When I score on Nate, I know I've done something."
C- Artis Gilmore
Regarded as one of the strongest men ever to play professional basketball, Gilmore was one of the league's most intimidating centers during the 1970s and 1980s. Most players knew better than to bring the ball to the hoop when the 7-2 Gilmore was in the middle. Also was a very underrated scorer. When someone fed the A-Train the ball inside the paint, opponents always did the same thing: backed away.
PF- Walt Bellamy
Good scorer, great rebounder.
SG- Drazen Petrovic
Deadly three point shooting off the bench can't hurt.
SF- Jamaal Wilkes
Solid defender, great role player.
SF- Manu Ginobili
The ultimate sixth man. Very underrated.
PG- World B. Free
Deadly scoring point guard off the bench.

Here we go (off the top of my head). I'm probably missing some better teams, but here's what I got:
