Which team would win head to head?

Assume it’s a neutral court.

Here's the 2011-12 roster. I don't think the result would be within 10 or 15 points

Until the current team gets a big man, I go with the 2011-12 team.

This year's team would win. The 2011-2012 team most likely are not in as good of shape as our current team. I'm sure the players from that team have packed on a few pounds over the past 7 years. After a couple of trips up and down the court, they'd be gassed. Then the youngsters would blow right by them for dunks and layups ;)

they were very experienced, very athletic. they also underacheived. this team likewise has its ups and downs. coaching is the x facor. i’ve seen enough to know that davis woulda taken the 2012 team deep into the tournament. in ten games, assuming the current team is playing today, i’d say the 2012 team wins 7 of them. maybe six?

if the current team had coach davis and the 2012 team had virtual coach davis. the 2012 team wins 8 or 9. if the current team had virtual coach mccolom and the 2012 team had coach mccollom the 2012 team wins them all.

Is this poll serious? We're 7-10, guys, with more points allowed than scored, playing a weaker schedule.

So you weren’t the vote for the 2019 team then?

I just thought it’d be fun, it’s certainly not a joke. I haven’t voted yet, but I agree the answer is almost definitely 2012 team. But there’s no deadline on the poll. What if we keep getting better and nearly run the table? Then it’s not so obvious an answer.

The comment about if the teams played each other 10 times is interesting. Thinking about it that way, no way these kids would drop more than 7 of 10 to the 2012 team. So I don’t see how it’s a joke at all.
