Inspired by Pav's post that was inspired by a million other versions of these, from this group, what team would you build with $15?

Note: this is not the ranking of VCU's best players by position, it's just a relative ranking of players who I could find pictures of.

I find the values a bit off. Juvonte, Kendrick, Jamie, Dom, Jones, JeQuanland Shu= $15.00

Kendrick $5.00
Jamie $3.00
Dom Jones $3.00
Ju a steal @ $2.00
JeQuan $1.00
Shu $1.00

Was tempted to Nick George for Dom Jones but ball handling won over reboudning (with Jamie/Kendrick/Ju I dont need it).

2.00 Melvin
We've chosen 3 of the same six. I'd like to see a simulation of our squads meeting head to head in their prime. I know you love Sheron but I think he and Jamie are a wash as Jamie would take him deep and hold his own in the paint.

Kendrick and Larry would be interesting. I'm from Richmond and think Kendrick is the most talented ever he'd give Larry fits but Larry's size would help some.

Still like Dom Jones over Melvin. Melvin better shot, Dom every thing else including the will to win.

4- Duncan/ Burgess
3- Daniels/Skeen
1- Tillman

Skeen I went back and forth on but put him and Tillman together would be awesome down low esp with them both being able to stretch the floor.

I was looking for both nick and dom but don't recognize them.

Henderson 5
Duncan 4
Skeen 3
Hopkins 2
Rozzell 1

lots of young guys must be answering (not a criticism) - Henderson and Duncan are the two best players to play at VCU IMHO (Henderson has the NBA rings and years of playing at the top level over any of our beloved players that most were at best fringe players at the next level (treveon non withstanding) - Henderson developed more at next level so his #s at VCU were not as great
Calvin wouldn't let his team lose
the others I selected to provide balance of defense size rebounding and perimeter shooting with Skeen and B-Roz
go rams
