Top 10 NBA Players of All Time
 
After reading this article I begun to wonder what my NBA top-10 would look like. I think I agree almost whole-heartedly with Mr. Simmons.

1. Michael Jordan
2. Bill Russel
3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
4. Magic Johnson
5. Wilt Chamberlain
6. Larry Bird
7. Kobe Bryant
8. Oscar Robertson
9. Tim Duncan
10. Hakeem Olajuwon

I have a good feeling Lebron will slot in around 5 or so when he's done. 4/5/6 was probably the hardest, as was 10 with a number of solid choices (Shaq, Pippen) there.

What's your top-10 look like?

2. Magic
3. Larry Bird
4. Hakeem

This is a great list. People often forget what a great player Jerry West was.

david robinson > tim duncan

w/out the admiral, duncan wouldn't be the player he is today.

Ewing deserves some mention :p maybe in the 11-13 spot.

Statistically wise Robinson was absolutely a monster but it was him that without Duncan wouldn't have a ring. Even if I compare the statistics of Karl Malone with those of Duncan, the Mailman is clearly better, but he has no hardware. Duncan is a winner and did all the right things to win, not to mention how versatile he is even at the tender age of 36: to me only Larry Bird can be considered better than him at PF.

About Ewing, I was his biggest fan back in the days, but if the Knicks didn't get a ring when we had the chance, it was also his fault and more than just the one time against the Rockets.

I'm awful with these lists so I will just leave it like this...

1. Anthony Goldwire.... the rest is up for debate.

davebenj 12-24-2012 06:26 PM

By the way, I agree that I would take Magic over Bird as a lot of you guys seem to but everybody who I've talked to about this told be I was crazy. Glad to see I'm not alone.

Yup Jerry West belongs in top-10.

Carolinas Identity 12-25-2012 12:27 AM

1: MIchael Jordan
2: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
3: "Magic" Johnson
4: Wilt Chamberlin
5: John Stockton
6: Bill Russell
7: Hakeem Olajuwon
8: Jerry West
9: Bill Walton
10: Chris Mullin

HM: Karl Malone, Kurt Rambis (I'll defend this to the day I die even tho I hate the Lakers), Brian Scalabrine :sarcasm:

Jordan - 10 scoring titles, 5 MVPs, and 6 championships. Don't know how anyone can top that.
Chamberlain - just scored so much more than anyone else.
Russell - playoff beast. The biggest reason why the Celtics won 11 rings in 13 years.
Kareem - 20 seasons in the NBA, including 6 MVP wins, shows insane consistency from season to season.
Magic - 3 MVPs, 9 years on 1st All-NBA team, 3 championships. Greatest PG of all time. Goes ahead of Bird as he beat him 2 out of the 3 times they met in the finals.
Bird - well can't have Magic without his biggest rival eh?
Kobe - 14 straight years on the All-NBA team. Not too shabby. Could even move a little higher before he retires.
Duncan - Wasn't as flashy as a lot of these other guys, but can't argue with what he's accomplished.
K. Malone - record 11 years on the first all-NBA team. Second-most points in history. With that on your resume you get a pass for not winning a championship.
Mikan - the first NBA superstar. Paved the way for everyone else on the list.

HMs: M. Malone, Cousy, West, Dr. J, Shaq

StringerBell 12-26-2012 03:09 AM

Not criticising here, but this is my first thought for half these lists.

MJ
Russell
Wilt
Magic
Bird
Kareem
Oscar

Kobe should not be above Shaq...then again I'm not a Kobe fan.

Chris Mullin should not be on ANY top 10 list. Hall of Famer, yes. But not even close to a top 10 guy.

Ivan13 12-30-2012 06:58 PM

Seeing Mikan mentioned only once is dissapointing as he's probably the most dominant player of any basketball era.

Martini* 12-30-2012 07:46 PM

Well, the list starts with Jordan, possibly the best player in the games history.

Then you have to go Oscar, Wilt,KAJ, Magic, Bird, Maravich, West, Mikan who I cant believe isnt on a few more lists here, and Kobe.

Theres some names I cant believe are on some of the lists posted. I would put Pippen above a few of them.

We're talking about NBA. Maravich is the best ever in the NCAA maybe, but NBA? Not even close to top 10, sorry.

Mikan was the first big star of the NBA, yes, but top 10 ever? No, maybe top 25.

JackSlater 01-02-2013 08:58 AM

Jordan
Chamberlain
Abdul-Jabbar
Magic
Bird
Robertson
Shaq
Olajuwon
James
Russell

West, Duncan, Baylor and Moses are all really close. Looking at these lists I am reminded of how overrated Kobe Bryant is. Borderline top 25 player for me.

Yes, the guy whose nickname is "The Pioneer of modern age basketball" surely isnt one of the best ever who played the game. :shakehead

Shaq needs to be in the 8-10 position no matter what. He changed the game and revolutionized the power forward position. No Jerry West either?

Nalyd Psycho 01-02-2013 09:59 PM

1. Micheal Jordan
2. Bill Russell
3. Kareem Abdul Jabbar
4. Larry Bird
5. Magic Johnson
6. Wilt Chamberlain
7. Oscar Robertson
8. Hakeem Olajuwon
9. Tim Duncan
10. Lebron James
