I have often wondered what we could do today with an ahistoric, all-star red team. What assumptions could we burst? What problems could we solve? What ivory towers could we topple? Here’s my team. Of course, there’s no guarantee some of these players could work together as a team, hence the need for a strong coach.
- Point guard: Richard Feynman
- Shooting guard: R. V. Jones
- Power forward: T. E. Lawrence
- Small forward: Kevin Mitnick
- Center: Sun Tzu
- Coach: Winston Churchill
Let’s see your teams … Can you build a starting five to outsmart, out-trick, and outmaneuver this one? There are plenty of outstanding players left to draft (and feel free to re-use any from my list).
