Would a Pistons starting five of Rodney Stuckey-Grant Hill-Tayshaun Prince-Amir Johnson-Greg Monroe make the playoffs?

The summer is the perfect time for ‘what if?’ posts and Logan Rothman of Ridiculous Upside has a good one: what if NBA teams were only composed of the active players that they’ve drafted? Here’s what the Pistons’ roster would look like:

PG Rodney Stuckey
SG Grant Hill
SF Tayshaun Prince
PF Amir Johnson
C Greg Monroe
Bench
SG Arron Afflalo
SF Carlos Delfino
SF Chase Budinger
C Darko Milicic
SF Austin Daye
PF D.J. White
C Mehmet Okur

I dare say … that looks like a playoff team (and even more impressive than that … Logan left out Jonas Jerebko, who would make that team even more solid). Certainly not the most impressive team on the list — my personal pick to dominate the NBA would be the Chicago squad led by Derrick Rose/LaMarcus Aldridge/Joakim Noah. The New Orleans Hornets backcourt of Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant is also pretty intriguing.
