Top 50 Players all time
Thie is a list that SLAM Magezine did in their latest issue. Tell me what you think...
42)Lebron James (No its not a typo!!!)
This is in no way or shape my list. This is from the latest issue of SLAM Magezine. Tell me what you think. The only thing i will say right now is where is MARAVICH!!!!!!! "The Pistol" one of the greatest guards EVER is not in the tp 50???? Anyway Tell me what you think?
Kobe is No. 12
Its debateable because I dont think that some of those players could compete today.
shaqs not better than magic or bird
it ranks current players to high SHAQ NUMBER 4!! Duncan in front of Bird!! Kobes way to high,Garnet should be 46-50 Lebron one day will be at the top but he doesnt belong on their now in front of guys who have played for 12 more years
You have to put Pistol Pete on that list.
4 Knicks from the '73 season that Cowherd says was not one of the greatest teams of all time.
Didnt that guy Oscar Robertson average a triple double? Why isnt he on the list?
O is #5
I think Dr.J should be 4 or 5 on this list not 15
This has nothing to do with the NBA Draft. It belongs in the NBA forum.
how is dennis rodman ranked? he is not even in the hall of fame or on the 100 greatest players of all time list. No pete maravich, connie hawkins and gary payton is not good to not only make this list, but jump the iceman, mcadoo, dominique, clyde drexler and billy cunningham. slam is in love with lebron they put him on every fourth issue they come out with so thats why hes ranked a biased 42.
My screen name tells you all what I think of Pistol Pete......the most exciting player to lace them up, maybe next to Jordan. I'm from Chicago!
Rodman at 48! that aint right. No way Shaq is better than Magic, Kareem, larry bird, or the big O. Karl Malone should be ahead of Moses Malone and John Stockton should be ahead of Isiah thomas. Not having Pistol Pete Maravich on this list is just wrong.
I agree with all of oh points. And slam is biased bit a lot of you guys name players that are on the list. Thanks for the feedback though!
Magic & Bird are #2 & #3 - Russell is WAY too high on that list, he was barely 6'10'' & had Five Hall of Famers on his team & Hakeem, Dr.j & Isaiah are All way better than Kobe - remember this list was compiled in 2009 - Kobe was a Kid on Shaq's 3peat... I Luv Kobe but Dr.J won 3 Titles in 7 trips & 4 MVP's.... & As Great as Shaq was Kareem is ahead of him.... I know I'll get neg-ed for fr Jrdan but I watched Every playoff game he ever played & I idolized him but he Never won even a single playoff series w/o Pippen & Grant & he benefitted greatly from Bird, Magic & Isaiah's injury shortened careers & Massively from expansion, In addition his year of Vacation Baseball the Bulls barely missed a beat dropping from 57 wins in 93 to 55 wins in 94.... Bird & Magic immediately won championships by beating Dr/ J's Sixers - one of the great teams of All time.... Jordan's Bulls Never beat any teams of the caliber of Bird's Celtics, Magic's Showtime Lakers, Dr. J's Sixers or Isaiah's Pistons.... And if Penny remains healthy & Shaq stays in Orlando the Bulls never win that 2nd 3 peat & Kobe never gets those first 3 Rings... I know the truth hurts but we all have to grow up sometime....
