I was just wondering, if it was possible to make a german NT with the best players of all time, who would they be? Obviously there is Nowitzki and Schrempf, and then? Koch? Welp? Harnisch? Okulaja?...

of course Nowitzki...
2nd placed should imo be Koch, as far as my memory he was the leader of 93' german golden team

I took for granted that Nowitzki and Schrempf were the best, I would place koch 3rd as he played in a very high level for many years with pao and before.

well I'm not that keen on Schrempf since he hasn't done much in europe, but yeah you're right he should still be no.2 in front of Koch...;)

My first and second team:

C Christian Welp
F Dirk Nowitzki
F Detlef Schrempf
G Mike Koch
G Kai Nürnberger

C Hansi Gnad
F Ademola Okulaja
F Mike Jackel
G Stephan Baeck
G Denis Wucherer

Honorable mentions: Henning Harnisch (F), Sascha Hupmann (C), Patrick Femerling (C), Henrik Rödl (F), Uwe Blab (C)


Of course I could only rate players who I saw play, so there are no players from the 60s or 70s on my teams for example. When I thought about it, I was a bit surprised about the small number of top guards actually, so I had to put Wucherer into my second team :p Baeck could've been listed as a SF as well, but I decided to list him as SG (he played both positions imho).
Dunno if I forgot anybody, but these are the top players I remember.

1 - Nowitzki
2 - Schrempf
3 - Koch

I agree with Trifilli's first team and also the rest.

That was the first team i had in mind also. As for the second team, i can't remember some of those guys. For example Hansi Gnad and Mike Jackel. I also vagely recall Stephan Baeck. Probably cause i didn't grow up in germany. When i thought of this my second team would be

G Wucherer
G Harnisch/Roedl
F Roedl/Harnisch
F Okulaja
C Femerling

But if you say otherwise, i believe you.
As for a top-5 i would go for

1.Nowitzki
2.Schrempf
3.Koch
4.Welp
5.Okulaja/Nürnberger/Wucherer
