Vote: Which team is the NBA's Monstars?

Just over 20 years ago, Michael Jordan and the Tune Squad shocked the universe by storming back to beat the heavily favored Monstars.

OK, so it wasn't real. But it did happen in "Space Jam." And it had SportsNation wondering, for the latest #PulseOfTheNation question:

Since the Monstars are a collection of players from across the NBA, the Golden State Warriors might seem like the natural fit, with two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry having been joined this offseason by 2014 Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant. But as LZ Granderson said in the video above, the Cavaliers are the champs, and therefore they stake some level of claim to the title.

Then there are the Clippers, with their trio of polarizing stars (Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan) and their hot start to the season. Of course, we have to leave the option open for another team ... perhaps those five-time champion San Antonio Spurs?
