JORDAN vs. WILT, RUSSELL vs. MAGIC
The 2011 NBA draft class is one of the thinnest in years (page 48). The same cannot be said of the talent available in SI.com's Ultimate Draft. For that basketball bonanza, 10 SI writers—including Chris Ballard, Lee Jenkins, Jack McCallum, Ian Thomsen and Alexander Wolff—selected 12-man teams from a pool of every player in NBA history. Since each platoon boasts its own Big 12, arguing about which fantasy squad would have been the most fantastic is fruitless. To get a less subjective answer, SI had Strat-O-Matic simulate a 72-game season and playoff tournament with the teams. You can find rosters and results online at SI.com/ultimate—and if you want to play with the ballers selected in the Ultimate Draft yourself, Strat-O-Matic is offering SI readers a special deal on its All-Time Greats: Hoops Top 120 game at strat-o-matic.com/products/si-offer.
