    Yeah, I like the 1st 5 of Kanagawa but I'll stick to Shohoku starter...Shohoku would not have won the game against Sannoh without any of the main players. Sakuragi has brought rebounding and guts, Miyagi speed and sensibility, Mitsui intelligence and his secret weapon( a 3 pointing ability), Rukawa brought fire and thirst for victory, and for a leadership of Akagi and Kogure. Their emotions, determination, victorious spirit and great strategy were all shown in this unforgettable game against the team without any weaknesses. Umph...I think Kanagawa Dream Team win that game against Japan Team(I think this team is the Best Team last National Championship, right?) Maki can surpass Fukatsu even if he's the best PG in Japan, I easily say that 'coz w/ a speed , tremendous power and being an ace to Kainan, Maki has the aura of a true champion. Rukawa vs. Sawakita, I think they are equal but if Sawakita is not too carefull maybe Rukawa may surpass Sawakita's ability. Rukawa's actions showed he's able to grow stronger every single game he plays. So far, his true ability showed at games against Sannoh I really like his playing strategies there...thanks to Sendoh's advise. Sendoh vs. Kawata.... of course a genius like Sendoh/Sakuragi(being sub) I think very hard to beat that two. Akagi vs Hiroshi... no one can beat Akagi if he want to.

    IMO the all Japan team wins. Having both Hiroshi and Masashi as your starting frontcourt is basically an instant win; two of the best centers in the country playing on the same team?! Sendoh won't be able to guard Masashi, so it might be better to shift either Hanagata or Uozumi at either PF or C, and move Akagi to PF. Or maybe even throw Sakuragi in there. Akagi in the Sannoh game said he doesn't think Sakuragi would even lose to Uozumi in terms of strength, so he should be able to guard Hiroshi. If the manga author really had the intention of making Sakuragi Dennis Rodman and Hiroshi Shaq, then if you guys remembered when these two played that Rodman played surprisingly pretty good defense on Shaq.

    Sawakita and Rukawa are evenly matched. I'd probably start Mitsui over Jin because they're comparable 3 point shooters, but Mitsui has the defense and the clutch factor in his favour. We haven't seen much of Tsuchiya to grasp what kind of game he has, but I'm guessing that he was modeled after Magic Johnson. In the manga it was stated he was a lot taller than most of the players on the court and his biggest strength seems to be his passing abilities on the fastbreak. Or he could be Larry Bird too.
