Totally agree. He was one of

Totally agree. He was one of the best big men in the history of basketball. Didn't make his name in the NBA, but he won a gold medal with the Soviet Union, and won three consecutive Soviet League titles. Great passer too.

Love seeing these lists by

Love seeing these lists by the way!

A few thoughts:

Great to see Sabonis so high, didn't do that much in the NBA but as an overall basketball talent absolutely deserves to be up there

Also nice to see Sikma so high, he is IMO one of the most underrated players in NBA history. One of the first centers with terrific shooting range and was also an excellent rebounder and defender.

Personally I think Sharman might be a bit too low. He is an 8 time All-Star, 4 time All-NBA First Team selection with 4 championships to his name. And was the greatest shooter in NBA history until Rick Barry came along. He'd be top 5 for me.

I would also put Peja Stojakovic over Strickland. It's pretty close for sure, but Peja was such an important player for those Kings teams and made 3 All-Star teams.

If Ralph Sampson gets in on his first three seasons in the league Maurice Stokes deserves a mention as well. Stokes was Lebron before Lebron; a 6-7, 232 lbs forward in the 1950s, who could rebound, handle the ball, pass and score.

1 other guy I'll give a shout out to, even though he might not quite deserve to be on the list is Jerry Sloan. A 2 time All-Star he was an awesome defender making 4 All-Defensive First Teams and 2 Second Teams

As much as I love Rod, I think Stackhouse might have had a better career than him. Great list though!

Seeing Sabonis battle David

Seeing Sabonis battle David Robinson in the Olympics really makes me wish he could have come to the NBA earlier in his career. I have never seen a 7'3'' guy move like that with the exception of Sampson, but Sabonis had a lot more strength. I feel, he would have been a 25/12 player if he came over in the early 90's.
