Assuming everyone is fully healthy
PG: Chris Paul/Rajon Rondo Advantage 1st team
SG: Tony Allen/Kobe Bryant Advantage 2nd
SF: Lebron James/Luol Deng Advantage 1st
PF: Serge Ibaka/Kevin Garnett Advantage 1st
C: Dwight Howard/Tyson Chandler Advantage 1st
The fact of the matter is that the first team is just better all around, the only advantage the 2nd team has is Kobe over TA but it's not that big.
The 1st team would win a real game.

well, considering playoff performances, and the rise of KG, I think the 2nd team can win.
Lets break it down, Mr. Danillo (Galinari?) :D
Chris Paul vs. Rondo
Yes, Paul is the best point guard in the NBA. But, when you really look into it, Rondo is just as impressive. His play, especially in the postseason, is waaay superior to Chris Paul's numerous choke jobs this past postseason. Teamwise, I like Rondo's style a little more, and Paul hasn't really stepped up in big moments.
Tony Allen vs Kobe
Kobe Bryant can't be guarded, and all Allen has is defense, with no real offensive game. If Kobe had a better bench, he would be in the conference finals right now. he's still balling.
James vs Deng
This would be a great matchup had Rose not gone down. James is the better player, but i think Deng can control him better then other guys. Also Deng looked very impressive this year.
Ibaka vs KG
The "surge" in KG's game this year from last makes me give the nod to him, though i liked Ibaka's game this year.
Tyson is a better defender then Howard, and Howard is a liability at the end of games.
All around, my team will score more points. That equals a win. ;-)
