Someone has to replace Charles and fill the 13th slot.
Isiah shouldn't be there. I get that you had an extra spot and also needed to replace Barkley but Barkley should be replaced by a PF and you can do that with Kemp, adding Payton as the final. Thomas made a big deal about how Magic shouldn't be allowed to play when he revealed he had HIV. Also Jordan kept him off the Dream Team because of that as well as the Bad Boy Piston's being thugs.
Look it up, here's a good article about it...
Oh don't worry. I am well familiar with the story. Doesn't mean he wasn't deserving based on merit, if not based on being a stellar human being. I mean... his own coach was coaching the team and they spited him. I am not a big Isiah fan, but if it was merit-based he should be there. And I agree Laettner shouldn't be and Shaq should.
Regarding the last spot, it was either Dumars or Nique and I went Dumars for defense since there was a plethora of scoring options already.
Another suggestion, if you don't want to go Payton and Kemp. Add Dominique Wilkins in Chuck's place and Shaq in the extra spot. A lot of people thought Shaq deserved the spot that went to Laettner. He was the #1 pick that next year and would have been the college player they wanted but Laettner was viewed as the best collegiate player to Shaq being the best NBA ready player that came into the league that draft.
