All Star Sixers team from last 10 seasons

OK Poindexters, here's my challenge for you all. Nominate your all Star team Sixers from the last decade of Sixers teams. That is Season 2003/04 to the current 2012/13. Starting 5 and bench 5. If you want to be nasty, then you can nominate your "Scream Team" of the worst Sixers, but don't blame me in any legal proceedings.
You have 3 coaches to pick from and he needs two assistants. (Obviously Marty gets one definite vote)

Probably only lock in would be Brett Maher (c) and Jared (Team Manager)

I think the list to pick from is:

Brett Maher
Brett Wheeler
Martin Cattalini
Paul Rees
Mark Nash
Willie Farley
Oscar Forman
Jacob Holmes
Charles Thomas
Dusty Rychart
Darren Ng
Brad Hill
David Cooper
Lanard Copeland
Matt Sutton
Nick Horvath
Erik Burdon
Jordan Dodman
Adam Ballinger
Axel Dench
Brad Davidson
Neil Mottram
Mike Chapell
Julius Hodge
Brad Gerlach
Shane Breheny
Luke Schenscher
Aaron Bruce
Mark Tyndale
Paora Winitana
Ryan Kersten
Peter Hoban
Rod Grizzard
John Gilchrist
Cortez Groves
Matt Burston
Nathan Herbert
Chris Molitor
Tom Garlepp
Troy De Vries
Craig Winder
Rhys Carter
Daniel Johnson
Jeff Dowdell
Sam Harris
Mitchell Creek
Tom Daly
Eddie Shannon
Ron Howard
Jan Warbout
Nathan Crosswell
Steven Weigh
Diamon Simpson
Chris Warren
Everard Bartlett
Wade Helliwell
Matthew Lycett
Adam Gibson
Jason Cadee
Anthony Petrie
Adam Doyle
Scott Christopherson
CJ Massingale
Pero Vasiljevic

(Apologies to anyone who donned the singlet and is not listed)

That would be a good team. No room for Diamon Simpson? Hodge?
Who would be Smyth's assistants?

Cant have Jones in as he was 80s otherwise he would be a lock for the 5 spot. Had Johnson as he is an MVP of the club. Gibson is my only One year player. Simpson was OK but frustrated me big time with his free throw shooting. Assistant coach gotta be Breheny.

Given in the past 10 seasons the 36ers have finished in the top half of the ladder just twice and won a grand total of 0 playoff games it could be known as the decade of duds!

Excluding someone because they played on a bad team wouldnt leave a lot of players.

lol at DJ being selected. Cattalini would punch his lights out within two or three games of putting up with his shit.

re: All Star Sixers team from last 10 seasons

The reality is during this period we never had a dominant Centre and Johnson is an MVP so you have to have him in the lineup with Rees as backup imo. He definately has his faults and body language is one but he can play so to not have him in this squad is not right looking at stats.

- Shot selection - taking away shots from better players as well, everyone's efficiency would go down

- DJ can't guard the pick and roll....we'd be torched, Maher wasn't great guarding the on-ball and neither was Farley but haven't Rees and Cooper there saved them...a DJ -Maher/Farley combo guarding the on-ball would be lay-up city.

- DJ doesn't really try to guard anyone full-stop


Seriously I'd take a Cooper and Rees who played their roles and didn't try to do anything they couldn't over stat chasing DJ any day of the week.

re: All Star Sixers team from last 10 seasons

My Team

Starters

Schenscher
Ballinger
Cattalini
Farley
Maher

Bench

Rychart
Horvath
Hodge (would be a starter if he played a full season, and didnt leave on bad terms, arguably the most talented)
Gibson
Gilchrist

Train on squad - Thomas, Bruce, Holmes, Forman, Simpson, Warren, DeVries

Development players (could make the next decade team if stick around and improve) - Creek, Weigh, Johnson, Cadee

Coach - Smyth
Assistants - Ninnis and Breheny

Many left Hodge out all together, understandably, if it were an official team the club probably would, i put him in off the bench as he is 'on the court' the best import we have had in the decade and i reckon we would have won around 50% of the games with him, which is good for the past decade and he was a big factor to us making the playoffs under Ninnis, even though he wasnt there at the end of the season.

Is this the best team, or a team of honoured players given their contributions? Much tougher if you're doing the latter. Maybe only Maher and Ballinger as locks?

re: All Star Sixers team from last 10 seasons

Maher - definately
Hodge - definately (doesnt matter what we think about him, definately the best player to pull on a 36ers jersey in the last ten years)

Cattalini


I cant decide between Rychart and Ballinger ( I cant believe no one else on here remembers how good rychart was)

As for the centre, the first year Schenscher was here he was a real force, schooled Anstey every time

Tough to leave out Farley, but he wasnt as good as Hodge

Charles Thomas, lots of people forget about him. He was here for two seasons I think, pretty much longer than every other import guard we've had since. People bemoaned him because he wasnt as good as Farley, mee or Brooks, and thus was quickly forgotten, but stacked up to who we've had since he probably looks alright. I can remember (a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away), you could just about guarantee that each of CT, maher and rychart would score at least 20 points, especially when the games was here in Adelaide.

re: All Star Sixers team from last 10 seasons

Here is my 'all could-of beens' team.

Players that if they were recruited/retained/used properly by the coach/didnt get injured may have turned out to be around the mark for the best team of the decade, but didnt make my team. Most have gone onto decent things at other clubs/leagues.

Burston (if not got injured would have been one of the better bigs we have had imo)

Holmes (done fairly well in his stints elsewhere and wasnt used well by Clarke imo, averaged around a 10pts 10rebds under Smyth for a few years)

Ingles (SA olympian)

Newley (SA olympian)

Bruce (rookie of the year, not retained by 2 coaches, doing better than most of our guards currently)

Howard (Averages around 20ppg in D-League, if clarke gave him the ball and some freedom would have been around 15-20ppg in the NBL imo)

Simpson (good import, if retained longer term could have been a all-decade prospect, had a short NBA stint)

DeVrie (good import, injury ruined his stint, gone on to do well in Spain)

Madgen (SA player, former 36ers development player, currently one of the best guards in the NBL)

Forman (SA player - doing well for the Hawks, would be as good as most PF/SFs we have had here had he stayed.)

I am glad someone dropped Brad's name down. I think he was understated and really was a great team man. One of those guys who showed a lot of leadership on and off the court.

re: All Star Sixers team from last 10 seasons

PG - Brett Maher (not a true PG but could do it with his eyes closed compared to cadee and crosswell) - court named after him, simple.
SG - Willie Farley - people come to be entertained and come to win, this guy did both and did it with style.
SF - Juilius Hodge - we may hate the bloke and may not like what he did, but keep him in this team and this league he would be 3 MVP's up over most.
PF - Martin Catalini - could do it all from playing big to hitting 3's, work ethic exceptional. plus has a trophy named after him simple.
c - Dusty Rhycart(not true but gee could bang) - made playing basketball look easy. the mid range jumper and rebounding always good.

Bench
Jacob Holmes - gee the bloke can rebound, gave his heart for the club.
Luke Schenscher - in his prime and first stint was unguradable.
Adam Ballinger - hard not to start him, but was dominant when the sixers werent.
Paul Rees - opposite to dusty, made everything look hard but didnt we love the guy.
Adam Gibson - championship player that seems to help teams fold, but if we had more who worked as hard as he does now, we wouldnt be so so bad.
Oscar Forman - hit his peak after sixers, but used us as a good stepping stone, but still wasnt aweful and good always shoot the ball.

coach
Phil Smyth (his spit has more basketball knowledge than the dud we have coaching now) if you can make Paul Rees look like a star then the world is your oyster. oh yeah plus has some credit with his championships and boomers days.

Anon - you mean the same Paul Rees who was MVP of the 1994 NBL grand final series for the Giants (against the 36ers, ironically) and played for teh Boomers at the 1994 Worlds? Yeah, fancy Smyth's coaching making him look good!

Now if you want to talk about what he got out of David Stiff...
