And is Kobe's ranking affected by his newly found love for twitter?

Its hard not putting my fav player of all time Earl the Pearl on this list haha but i know better. Kobe my 2nd fav tho

Statistically you can put Lebron in the top 5, but i have to have him 11 simply because of the rings. If he gets 3 or more, hes top 5-7 no doubt

1. MJ - Hands down the

1. MJ - Hands down the greatest
2. Wilt- Dominated on the court and in the bedroom
3. Magic- Most Versatile player ever
4. Lebron- If he wins 3 or 4 more titles he could move to 2nd
5. Bird- The stretch 4 didn't really exist in the 80's but Larry Bird invented it
6. Russell- All he does is win
7. Kareem- He scored a lot and won alot
8. Kobe- Same ^
9. Dr. J- He changed the game was played in the air and with ABA #'s is one of all time greatest scorers
10. Duncan- He gets the nod over Shaq because he was more skilled and won without a dominant scoring partner.

Tough list...

They are not that far off, especially after Jordan, it's like you could make a case for quite a few players for who would come next...

Jordan
Magic
Russell
Wilt
Kareem
Kobe
Duncan
Bird
Lebron
Olajuwon
Shaq
Oscar
Admiral
Mailman
Moses

lots of players would make honerable mention. could name easily 20.

when the word "greatest" was mentioned, I only took into consideration of greatest on the court. however greatest as in how a player effected the game, Kevin Garnett would have to be included. He revolutionized the sport in a sense. He's the reason there is now a salary cap, and he was the first high school player in quite some time to come out to the pros and even made it the cool trend in following years til they changed the rules. On the court he's honerable mention, but count what he did to change the sport and it's a different story.

Whole Career

Lebron will go down as a top 5 player, simply incredible, but he hasn't achieved enough rings and he's only halfway through his career. If he was to have a career-ending injury tomorrow and we waited a few years, putting him in the top 5 would look silly. Those people that have put Lebron 5 spots ahead of Oscar Robertson really lack a sense of perspective.

1) Russell
2) Jordan
3) Chamberlain
4) Magic
5) Bird
6) Robertson
7) Shaq
8) Kareem
9) West
10) Kobe
11) Duncan
12) Lebron
13) Olajuwon
14) Stockton
15) Malone
16) Barkley
17) Thomas
18) Garnett
19) Erving
20) Baylor
20)

Kobe over the Big O? I Don't Think So

Kobe is a great player but I'm old enough to remember the Big O, Oscar Robertson, who to this day, is the greatest player I ever saw in terms of all around skills. He could do everything! The only player with the Big O's overall skill set was Magic. And both Jerry West and Larry Bird should be in everyone's top ten list.

The best defender of all time was Bill Russell.

And of course I cannot disagree with anyone who says Michael Jordan was the greatest player ever.

1. Jordan 2. Magic 3. Wilt 4.

1. Jordan
2. Magic
3. Wilt
4. Bird
5. Kareem
6. Russell
7. Kobe
8. Duncan
9. Shaq
10. LeBron
11. Big O
12. Olajuwon
13. KMalone
14. West
15. Zeke

2 - 6 are completely interchangeable and if Kobe wins one more title he can also be interchangeable.

Mine

1) Chamberlain
2) MJ
3) Robertson
4) Magic Johnson
5) Bird
6) Kareem
7) Lebron
8) Russell
9) West
10) Shaq
11) West (Jerry, not Mark)
12) Erving
13) Kobe
14) Olajuwon
15) It's a close call, but I'm gonna have to go with Malone (Karl, not Moses or Jeff) over Dalen Qualls
