I think Rolando Blackman

I think Rolando Blackman should be on here. 18 PPG guy over a long career, 4-time All-Star. Carlos Boozer also deserves consideration.

Nice list, only guy I can

Nice list, only guy I can think of that might have fit is Elton Brand. Career 17-9 guy and averaged 20-10 almost seven times.

You're right, he should be at #10 instead of Zelmo Beaty.

Idk Zelmo has some good

Idk Zelmo has some good numbers and almost think you could argue Vin Baker over Elton Brand. Elton has better career numbers whereas Baker had 4 straight All Star appearances and is an Olympic gold medalist.

Sure... Rings, MVPs, all-star

Sure... Rings, MVPs, all-star games, ppg, etc are all important. But I dare you to find a player with a name better than Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje aka Mr. Name So Nice You Gotta Say it Twice!

Thoughts

I have a problem putting Bosh that high on any list. Yes, I too would put Big Shot ahead of Bosh.

Bill Bradley is in the HOF. ??

Top 6 is a pretty good list (understatement). But the rest of the list of B's aren't that great. I will boldly predict that two current players will crack that top 10 in Harrison Barnes and Jimmy Butler. Wishful thinking and extremely early in the process but I am just really high on both these players. Butler since I first saw him. Always thought Barnes would be just a solid NBA player, nothing special, but now think the world of him. I am hoping Nic Batum takes his game to another level as well.

I think Bosh and Billups

I think Bosh and Billups could be switched, but Bosh is an 8 time all star, and he's won 2 rings now, thats what put him ahead for me.

Bill Bradley is in the HOF and won 2 rings, but over his career he averaged 12, 3, and 3. Just not dominant enough to be on here.

As for the future, I think Barnes has the potential to be on here, but not Jimmy Butler. I don't think he's going to get a lot better, but he will be a solid player down the road, something in the mold of 15pts with solid defense.

That overrated injured Center

That overrated injured Center please.

Mike Bibby was definitely a fan favorite for a while too.

Also no way is Bosh better than Billups, he got those rings thanks to Lebron.
Played with two top 10 players and still barely won the 2nd title.
They should send Pop a thank you gift for Game 6.
Also don't forget Bosh did close to nothing in the Indiana series.

Meanwhile Billups was not only Finals MVP he almost beat the Spurs in 05 and helped get the Nuggets to the WCF in 09.
