Let's Talk All-Decade Team

Drumrolls please...I know we are a little late, but what would 2010 be without a "Let's Talk NBA All-Decade." We will have our list of the All-NBA First and Second team, and the unfortunate All-NBA busts team for the past decade.

All-Decade NBA First Team
Guard: Jason Kidd
Guard: Kobe Bryant
Forward: LeBron James
Forward: Tim Duncan
Center: Shaquille O'Neal

All-Decade NBA Second Team
Guard: Allen Iverson
Guard: Steve Nash
Forward: Dirk Nowitzki
Forward: Kevin Garnett
Center: Yao Ming
Sixth Man: Michael Jordan (his tenure with Wizards was exciting...besides, he's the G.O.A.T.)

Now you could argue for players such as Carmelo Anthony, Vince Carter, Dwayne Wade, Paul Pierce, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Keyon Dooling (just making sure you're paying attention here). The most shocking may be Yao over Dwight Howard. Sorry Dwight, but when Yao is healthy, he's a better player...and he doesn't make me look away from the TV like I'm watching a horror film when he's on the offensive end. And he improved his game yearly.

All-Decade NBA Busts Team
Guard: Sebastian Telfair
Guard/Foward: Darius Miles
Forward: Adam Morrison
Forward: Darko Millicic
Center: Kwame Brown- along with some other picks from that 2001 drafts

Michael Olowakandi came close but he had at least one productive season with the Clips.

Agree? Disagree? Riddle me that...even if you feel someone deserves to be on this busts team.
