POS PLAYER HT YEAR AGE PTS REB AST PER*
G JOHN STOCKTON 6-1 1990 27 17.2 2.6 14.5 23.9
Comment: We know he can play the two-man game with the Mailman; now has other options to pile up the assists
G PETE MARAVICH 6-5 1977 29 31.1 5.1 5.4 19.8
Comment: Back in the franchise's New Orleans days, Pistol led NBA in scoring; dynamic and flashy (if slightly overrated)
G DARRELL GRIFFITH 6-4 1983 24 22.2 3.9 3.5 15.8
Comment: Known more for his Louisville exploits, Dr. Dunkenstein was quality player in the pre-Stockton/Malone era
G JEFF HORNACEK 6-3 1996 32 15.2 2.5 4.1 19.1
Comment: Double down on Malone and you'll free up Hornacek from 3-point land (46% in '96)
F ADRIAN DANTLEY 6-5 1984 27 30.6 5.7 3.9 24.6
Comment: How is he not in Hall of Fame? 14th all-time in career scoring average with unstoppable low-post game despite size
F KARL MALONE 6-9 1997 33 27.4 9.9 4.5 28.9
Comment: Has to be the power forward on the all-time NBA squad; won MVP in '97 and was 1st-team all-D; 11 straight years 1st-team All-NBA
F ANDREI KIRILENKO 6-9 2004 22 16.5 8.1 3.1 22.6
Comment: Another great defender and shot blocker (2.8 per game in '04) with all-around skills
F TRUCK ROBINSON 6-7 1978 26 22.7 15.7 2.1 15.7
Comment: Given name was Leonard, but don't call him that; 1st-team All-NBA in '78
C MARK EATON 7-3 1985 28 9.7 11.3 1.5 13.6
Comment: Not listed: 5.6 blocks per game, which made him defensive player of the year
C THURL BAILEY 6-11 1988 26 19.6 6.5 1.9 16.3
Comment: Not a classic big man, but his soft shooting touch provided a nice third option in early Stockton/Malone days

SCOUTING REPORT: You know all about Stockton and Malone, but now they've added two legendary scorers in Maravich and Dantley. Along with Eaton, one of the great shot blockers of all time, that's a lethal starting five. Malone, Eaton and Kirilenko (another terrific shot blocker) were all great defenders. Hornacek can drain the 3-pointer with the best of them and the Lakers will have trouble matching up with the strength of Malone and Robinson.
