well... aside from the fact that you totally missed the point of the argument when you included "the likes of Kevin Love"... who would obviously not come close to making the roster......
anybody who thinks there is "no comparison" between Magic and DRose does not have the basketball IQ to be involved in this debate... i was watching the NBA when Magic came into the league, and i consider him (at this moment) to be the greatest PG to ever play the game... so there is no "modern day bias" here... but Rose is without question "in the conversation" as being one of the great PGs to ever play the game, and i assure you he creates just as many matchup problems for Magic as Magic does for Rose...
yes, the '92 Dream Team would probably beat the REAL 2012 Dream Team... but anybody suggesting is not "not even debatable" either: (a) doesn't know basketball, (b) has an "old school bias", or (c) hasn't given this enough thought...
