i was born in 1986 i seen tapes and ESPN CLASSIC of WILT,RUSSELL,SHAW BRADLEY,KAREEM,MAGIC,BIRD,POPEYE JONES
but ima have to SAY SHAQUILLE O'NEAL he was so powerful nobody could stop him!!!
but I'm not talking about Jordan. I'm talking Magic Johnson. I always question how many more championships he would have had, how many awards, and how crazy his numbers would have been had it not been for him to retire in his prime basically. His charisma is comparable to my favorite WWF wrestler of all-time in Shawn Michaels. He just puts on a show when he plays with flashy passes and making his teammates better. Magic is number 2 cuz he's the sh*t
Championships? Longevity? Playmaking? It is all subjective and dependant on what one wants out of a leader. Wilt put up 50 a game, the Big O is underrated in these discussions, and Russell won a billion rings. Kobe could light it up, Hakeem had the best feet and skill @ center, Shaq was a bull down low, Magic was Magic. Could be any of these guys depending on the person. Can't we just say they are all great? Why rank?
4. Popeye Jones
He averaged 22.5 rebounds in his carreer
Mark Bryant? Zaza?
popeye jones should be higher
