Well, you know what I'm going to bring forth here. Same shebang as with my past two Fantasy Draft Throwdowns.
PG: Tony Parker
SG: Andre Iguodala
SF: Rashard Lewis
PF: David West
C: Dwight "Superman" Howard
6th: Tayshaun Prince
My team isn't the only thing I'll be listing though.
Offense: Dribble-Drive Motion
For the uninformed, this is the offensive style that was used by the University of Memphis last year with great success. It revolves around one post player playing under the basket (Howard), and four players on the perimeter. The point guard drives to the basket, then kicks out if pressured. It relies on the players' decision making, speed, and often explosiveness to score.
I think that is self-explanatory. Each player is tasked with defending another.

A little bit disappointed to see the forfeited turn up there. Use Internet Explorer next time, then you will get the correct character count instead of going over.
Judging from your comment, however, it seems that you are falling into the same trap that my past two opponents plunged into. We're not creating the ultimate group of individuals, we're creating the ultimate team. Your team is woefully lacking of methods to defend my unit.
The DDM offense is one that's predicated on the players' speed and creativity. I can instantly spot gross mismatches at the SF and C positions.
The tale of the game will start with Tony Parker, a scorer with great vision, pushing the ball up and driving into the heart of the defence. If he's swarmed, then he can kick it out to Iguodala or Lewis, who can also drive. Lewis is key because he is a ridiculous threat from long range, adding another dimension to the offense. West has a very smooth mid-range jumper.
However, the reason these guys will have the right room to operate is Dwight Howard. Dwight-Kaman is an absolutely huge mismatch. Dwight is faster, stronger, more explosive, and a better rebounder. If he gets the ball, he WILL dominate.
