Many of the Players on the list have Third Team Select and Finals MVP but it's not necessary. Also there are many thing to mention but MVP, All NBA and Championship is what makes you a great player
Guys like Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, Dwayne Wade, Steve Nash and so on are all Honorable Mention.
Most Dominant Player - Wilt chamberlain
Best Scorer - Wilt Chamberlain
Best of the top ten - Wilt Chamberlain
That my list with a little research
I would agree with him being the most dominant of all time, but not the best. Wilt played in a different era. The numbers guys put up back then were ridiculous. Guys were grabbing 50 rebounds in games averaging 20+ for a season. Wilt had a season in which he averaged 50+ points, 49 minutes per game(yes they were 48 minute games back then). His 100 point game though was a joke and no where near as impresive as Kobe's 81.
if wilt was so great why didnt you put him in the top ten?
no way u put jerry west in front of kobe. jerry has no mvp's and 2 titles. Kobe has 1 mvp and 3 titles. also if u put them on the court together u cant possibly think jerry would be better than kobe.
Your list shows that you did in fact, only use a little research (if any)? FAIL!

1. Michael Jordan
2. Bill Russell
3. Magic Johnson
4. Oscar Robertson
5. Karim Abdul Jabbar
6. Wilt Chamberlain
7. Larry Bird
8. Moses Malone
9. Rick Barry
10 Tim Duncan
