Gotta give a shout out to Drazen Petrovic. His life ended way too soon but he was well on his way to being a perennial All-Star and a pioneer for European basketball players in the NBA.
I also have to mention one of my favourite players growing up; Ricky Pierce one of the greatest 6th men in NBA history. His 14.9 PPG in 969 NBA games seems pretty good but becomes even more impressive when you realize that those points came in just 24.4 MPG and that he shot 49.3% from the field and 87.5% from the line. Per 36 minutes he averaged at least 22 PPG for eight straight seasons and from the late 80s to the early 90s was the leagues most prolific scorer off the bench.
Paul pierce behind paul or even payton... not agree.
Chris Paul at 4 is a joke. Pierce, Parish and Parker are way better
I think Chris Paul has been the best player at his position for the last 5-6 years. And how is Parker WAY better than CP3? He already has more assists than Parker and he's 3 years younger.
That is a strong group of players except for Prince.
Mark Price is severely underrated. You should check out some old youtube clips of him.
I think Parker has to be higher. 3 championships and a finals MVP. I am a huge Chris Paul fan, but despite the numbers I think Parker has a better resume and I don't think there is enough difference in the stats. I don't think it would have been a contest if Paul had never gotten hurt like he did because he was pretty much unstoppable pre-injury. By the same token, I always felt Parker was reigned in the majority of his career and has had to take a backseat to Duncan and Manu at times.
John Paxson could edge over Prince. Not stats wise but was clutch during jordans first 3 titles
