The Most Unique Players Of All Time
Dirk Nowitzki: First off his from Germany and you know the Germans Make good stuff. Dirks Game is so special as his not just a shooter but his bloody 7ft. Any big Man who can shoot is instantly compared to Dirk but there is no player who could ever live up to the Blondys Expectation
Magic Johnson: Proberly the most Obvious choice possible i mean his a bloody 6'9 PG.Not only that his Showtime Offense was so exciting i was often seen watching it with my jaw droped praising shamWOW. Ohhh and did i metion he was 6'9 and a PG? If you were to look to a dictionary and search Point Forward it would write Refer to Magic Johnson.
Larry Bird: There a very few NBA Great List that you can have Magic and not the Bird Man. There like JD and Turk from scrubs. However Larry was Special on his own two feet. He filled out every White sterotype there was yet when on the court no one could stop him. I salute you JD of the Basketball world
Wilt Chamberlain: Now this guy was Just so dominate in every sense. But in his Career he had one season were he did something so unique that this list just had to include him and no I am not talking about his 100 point game nor am i talking about his 55 rebounds (both are very much the definition of shamWOW though) but the 67-68 season were the Big Dipper lead the league in Assist. thats just shamCrazy.
Allen Iverson: 6'0 tall yet one of the greatest scorers of all time. In a sport were the little guy is seen as the guy to set up the Tall timber Iverson said screw that i'll score on my own. A guy so small yet feared by so Many. Iverson also brought the street inside the building wowing us like no other player ever has.
Great list, may I add Dennis Rodman?
Yer should of thought of Dennis Rodman Good Thinking
haha and you know the germans make great stuff
You may have contributed to the death of the greatest pitch man there ever was. Billy Mays. How does that make ya feel?
Anyway, great list. Eventually, LBJ will have to be added to this list because of his crazy athletic ability along with his combination of speed and size.
U have to add DR.J...HE CHANGED THE WAY THE GAME IS PLAYED...SHAQ....The league coaches had to come up with a way to stop this GUY...PISTOL PETE..Was way ahead of his time..RODMAN..Was so unique,he could grab 10 boards opening night 2009..his antics to me were funny..but alot of folks hated it...
Muggsy Bogues should definitly be on this list!
I think Charles Barkley should be on that list. There have been plenty of undersized bruiser power forwards over the years, but none that were as elite of a player in the modern era. At 6'5'' he was a career rebounding average of 11.7 and a season high of 14.7. He was an accomplished offensive player too. He dominated a position against players 3-6 inches taller than him for over a decade. He was a complete player too, a good passer, defender, and shooter. People forget that Sir Charles has career assist numbers around 4 and steals around 1.6. He was really a complete player and as a 6'5'' 250 pound power forward that is pretty unique in my book
Karl Malone was pretty unique too, I don't remember anyone being as jacked as him back in the day but now with Lebron, Artest and Howard that's starting to be more common.
Should Be Added
Pistol Pete, Charles Barkley, Tracy McGrady,LeBron and Yao Ming
depends are we talking about most unique style or personality?
Yeah, I don't know I've seen a player with as big of arms as the Mailman.
Charles Barkley is right on the money Joe. Will NEVER be a player that remotely resembles him
How about Kevin garnett, a wirey pf/sf, whens the last time u saw a 7fter be able to play all the postions effectively both offensively and defensely, theres never been some one with his outside touch passing abilty post game dribbling ability rolled into that type of package before
KG does not come around ever. He really has played all positions and covered them all throughout his career.
