The rest of them you can at least see a few similarities, but some of them are simply off the wall. But you have to remember that this is the era of ESPN breaking everything down into lists and trying to convince people that today's players are better than yesterdays players and everything happening today is the best that it's ever been in the sport.

Give me the '92 Dream Team over any team, in any era.
I see your point, but at the same time, sometimes you have to counter-act the people who are always bashing the new because it isn't the old.

I mean, there's a fine line, but I run into a lot of "Man, everything was better in my day" people, when there are really talented people playing today. And that goes for all sports.
