    How is Oscar ahead of Magic and Kareem?



    How is Hakeem outside the top 10 and behind Baylor and West?

    Nash and LeBron don't deserve a top 50 spot imo.

    Too early for LeBron , could win up like Grant Hill for all we know and Nash had a great stretch but I don't think it can really be put up their with the all time greats.

    Disagree. Nash is a two time MVP award winner. That alone is enough to be top 50 ever. Only Kareem, Russell, MJ, Wilt, Moses, Larry and Magic have won more than 2 MVP awards. And only Pettit, Karl Malone and Timmy have won 2. Everyone else on the all-time 50 list either won it once, or never at all.

    LeBron already has one, something Grant didn't have. He's been a top 3 player in the league for a while now. He is a superstar, and the face of the NBA. He's questionable, but I wont complain.

    I do agree 100% with JordansBulls on his comments.

    7) Kareem Abdul Jabbar TOO HIGH

    8) Tim Duncan

    12) Kobe Bryant

    13) Hakeem Olajuwon TOO LOW

    18) Karl Malone BELOW DUNCAN WHERE HE BELONGS

    19) Isiah Thomas

    20) Charles Barkley BETTER PLAYER THAN MALONE

    22) John Stockton SHOULD BE HIGHER

    25) David Robinson TOO LOW

    26) Kevin McHale

    27) Scottie Pippen LITTLE LOW

    28) Jason Kidd

    29) George Mikan WAY OVERRATED! THIS GUY WAS THE 1ST GOOD BIG, TIME TO MOVE ON. HE SHOT 40% FOR HIS CAREER DESPITE BEING MUCH BIGGER THAN ALL HIS COMPETITION. HE WOULD GET EATEN ALIVE IN ANY OTHER ERA.

    30) Kevin Garnett

    39) Allen Iverson

    42) LeBron James GOOD TO SEE SOME LOVE FOR SOME OF THE CURRENT PLAYERS

    48) Dennis Rodman HAPPY HE MADE THE LIST

    I think he gets overrated due to playing in an era where there was very little competition at his position. I place Hakeem second in the list of all time centers because he was the best center in the best era for centers. Actually, as a rule I think that big men get overrated due to the fact that there have been so few great bigs and so many great wings and pg's.

    How is Shaq ahead of both Kareem and Magic? Also, there is no way Hakeem should be out of the top ten.

    Not sure, however Shaq has a small case. He has 3 finals MVP's just like Magic, but Shaq also is 4th all time in playoff PER

    http://www.basketball-reference.com/..._career_p.html

    And is 2nd all time in season PER

    http://www.basketball-reference.com/...er_career.html

    I would still rank both Kareem and Magic ahead of him. With them being 2nd and 3rd on my all time list.

    Absolutely. No one can stop you from having your opinion and no one can stop you from being wrong. Shaq isn't even top 5 in terms of a center's basketball playing ability.

    No Joe Dumars, even in the top 75? Someone tell me I'm not the only one that finds that odd.
