    Tom Brady
    Randy Moss
    David Ortiz
    Manny Ramirez
    Curt Shilling
    Josh Beckett
    Jonathan Paplebon (borderline)
    Paul Pierce
    KG
    Ray Allen

    Let’s really think about it for a second... That is one SICK assembly of players. Im talking like “Historically” sick! Can you even think of another city who had so many legitimate superstars (IN THEIR PRIME) playing there at the same time!!

    Enjoy it folks. We will probably never see anything like this again. :rocker:

    Seattle had a decent little patch of players in the late 90's.

    Ken Griffey Jr.
    Alex Rodriguez
    Randy Johnson
    Shawn Kemp
    Gary Payton
    Ricky Waters
    Joey Galloway

    Not quite what Boston is looking at now and you can thank the Seahawks for it.

    Only Kemp and Payton were basketball players.

    If you consider Ray Allen and Curt Schilling superstars, then Marc Savard and Zdeno Chara have to go in this group too.

    You also forgot to add those soccer guys who are in the MLS Championship (Taylor Twellman?)

    Also, Dice-K is huge at least in terms of being a Japanese star.

    To Claim Dice K is not a star is plain stupid. Envy is a sickness... Get treatment.

    What? Dice-K isn't a star... he's a good #2-3 pitcher. How is that a "superstar"?

    Dice K may be a star in terms of publicity, but I dont think he is a top pitching star YET. 4.4 Era with a 15win 12loss record is ok, but lets not put him in Canton yet. I hate the NY teams but in the 80s didnt they have..

    Gooden
    Hernandez
    Strawberry
    Mattingly
    L.T
    Harry Carson
    Bavaro
    Ewing
    Mark Messier....

    Pretty good list if ask me....

    How about mid 80's Chicago teams... They had some superstars, I believe 8 out 11 are in the HALL OF FAME.

    Michael Jordon
    George Gervin
    Dan Hampton
    Walter Payton
    Mike Singletary
    Dennis Eckersley
    Lee Smith
    Ryne Sandberg
    Larry Bowa
    Davey Lopes
    Gary Mathews

    And actually after thinking about it, your list pails in comparison to some of the list.

    Terry Sawchuk played for the Kings in 67-8, too, if you want to stretch it a bit further...
