All-name teams

Henry Abbot relayed this question on TrueHoop yesterday:

From Twitter: @sellouttrout asks: “Just curious, if you built a team in which every position was manned with people of the same last name, what last name wins?” I swear I wrote a post about this once. There are many teams with way better depth (Jones, Williams, Smith) but you have to at least consider the notion that DeAndre Jordan could be on the best single-name team ever.

For the all-time team, I’d go with Johnsons:

  • PG- Magic
  • SG- Kevin
  • SF- Dennis
  • PF- Larry
  • C- Gus

And Williamses for current players:

  • PG- Deron
  • SG- Mo
  • SF- Marvin
  • PF- Shelden
  • C- Sean

Who would you take?

    This reminds of a classic old NBA song/montage video featuring all the Johnson’s of the NBA. I can’t seem to find it on YT though.

    Sean and Shelden as the starting front court…ewww. Maybe ok on defense but NO offense. Johnson’s by 30.
