  • Top 10 NBA players of all time

    I was thinking about this recently and thought why not just for fun over last couple of years I have done ton of research on pervious era's and watched lot of film on some of all-time greats and not just highlights. Here is mine, feel free to list yours.

    1) Michael Jordan
    2) Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
    3) Magic Johnson
    4) Bill Russell
    5) Wilt Chamberlain
    6) Kobe Bryant
    7) Tim Duncan
    8) Larry Bird
    9) Shaquille O'Neal
    10) Lebron James

    11) Hakeem toss up between Lebron and Hakeem for now.

    Instead of doing it by top 10, I'll go by position

    PG: Stockton
    SG: MJ
    SF: LBJ
    PF: Malone (although I prefer Rodman)
    C: Kareem & Shaq (tie)

    Backups:

    PG: Magic
    SG: Kobe
    SF: Bird
    PF: Dirk

      That works, but how in the hell is Stockton above the GOAT PG in Magic. Heck even Stockton would pick Magic over himself.

        Magic had more talent, but without Kareem, he didn't get very far. Stockton is the ALL-TIME ASSIST & STEALS leader for a reason

          Coolthread Chillez! I gotta go with the guys I saw play:
          C Hakeem Olaujawon
          PG MAGIC Johnson
          SG Michael Jordan
          SF Larry Bird
          PF Charles Barkley

          Bench:
          C- Tim Duncan
          PG - Gary Payton
          SG- Kobe Bryant
          SF - Scottie Pippin
          PF - Dirk Nowitzki


          Note: Lebron is the best athlete I've ever seen in the nba but I get the impression he doesn't want the ball at the end of games sometimes.

              I'd have Bird much higher in the list. Not saying he's better than Jordan but 8-0 against him in the playoffs and 23-11 in the regular season. Birds game wasn't pretty but he was money on the court even after the back injury.

              Pat Riley once said he'd take MJ if the game was on the line but he'd take Bird if his life was on the line.

                Good to see Scottie Pippen! He would be an automatic on most lists if he'd not played in the shadow of MJ.

                  Scottie's good, but he's not an ALL-TIME great. You can tell that by the fact that when the game was on the line, Phil wouldn't give him the ball, but rather give it to Kukoc. Also what did he accomplish outside of CHI?

                    I chose Pippen because of his ability to lock down guys defensively which allowed MJ to have the energy to attack the other team, Pippen also could handle the ball, and score, I view my top ten as a team not individuals, I would want guys like Pippen who can do whatever is needed, your right he is not a top 10 player all time I'd say top 50.

                      Definitely top 50. I'd have him somewhere between 25-40.

                          No mention of Dr J??? The man single handedly changed the game by making the flying dunk the signature move of the NBA

                            He'd be closer to the 40-50 range, than 1-20

                              You would not put Pippen in the top 20? That surprises me! I would have him in my top-10. That 1994 All-Star game he was wearing those red shoes and he was unstoppable. He was on MJ's level.
