BEST EVER NBA ALL-STAR TEAM - 62' team tops list

The NBA has been voting on an all-star team for over 50 years now. Each team represents the best of the best that year. But which all-star team is the best ever? There have been many talented ones like the 1989 team or the 1997 team but I don't think there is a better group then 1962 all-stars.

This 62' team consisted of:

F: Elgin Baylor
Averaged: 38 ppg/ 18.6 reb/ 4.6 ast

F: Bob Pettit
Averaged: 31 ppg/ 18.7 reb/ 3.7 ast

C: Wilt Chamberlain

Averaged: 50.4 ppg/ 25.7 reb/ 2.4 ast/ ? blks (Blocks Shots were not kept)

G: Oscar Robertson

Averaged: 30 ppg/ 12.5 reb/ 11.4 ast

G: Jerry West

Averaged: 26.9 ppg/ 6.9 reb/ 4.7 ast

This team was amazing. Four players on the team averaged more than 30 points a game and four players averaged over 12 rebounds a game. If this team wasn't dominate I don't know what team was. They had the premier point guard in Oscar Robertson. Oscar was Magic Johnson but could score at will. West was the prototype shooting guard who could also pass while Pettit was the enforcer that could put up 20 points and 20 rebounds any night. Now throw in Elgin Baylor and Wilt Chamberlain, two of the all time greats and there is no way you stop them. Defensively, Chamberlain's athleticism would make it very difficult for opposing teams to score. This team, like the 89' team has Hall of Famer after Hall of Famer. Is there a better group of NBA all-stars? Check out the list and you tell me:
