    Greatest SF Of All Time

    There's a thread going on asking if LBJ is the second best SF of all time. Some say he is already the best, others say Bird is, and some people have left me scratchign my head by saying that Dr. J is the best SF of all time. So I thought the best way to get the settled is to have a poll.

    Please do share your thoughts.

    I've included a short list of SF based off of this ranking that came out some time ago:

    I just want to say that I feel like Baylor is under appreciated. That cat was amazing! And John Havlicek never gets the kind of respect he deserves.

    Larry Legend but James is probably on pace to surpass him but it'll probably take him at a minimum 3-5 more years.

    If Scottie Pippen were to have a team of his own, I feel he'd definitely be in the talks for best SF of all time. The only reason he's not in the talks now is because he was playing in the shadow of the greatest player of all time.

    Depending on whether or not LeBron gets a few more rings to his name, I say he has a good chance in being better than Larry Bird.

    He'd be able to produce a couple of rings, he'd be averaging more points and have more shot opportunities than he did with Chicago and would still be the great defender he is (best defender at the SF position?).

    What would separate him from Bird at that point?

    We've seen Pippen as the 'guy' before though, and that version is still inferior to Bird so I honestly don't see the debate.

    agreed. Jordan retired and we saw a solo scottie. I wouldn't take him over bird

    Pippin wouldn't have ever become as good as he was without playing/practicing with Jordan though either.

    Pippen isn't that kind a player. He's best suited as a sidekick. As the man, Pip is going to come up short. He's always been more comfortable playing the sidekick role. He's also never been a ISO type player that could break his man down. He's more of a facilitator and far more comfortable playing the "Robin" role.

    I think someday if he stays healthy Lebron will be the best. But to say he is right now is just unfair to the guys who played a long time. He hasn't had the career guys like Bird, Erving, and Pippen have had. He'll pass them someday but right now I don't think so. And I'm sure he'd agree.

    I'm also not a fan of judging players in this era with other a different era. It's just too dam hard to say how good a guy like Bird or Irving would be if the 3 second rules and hand touch fouls and just ridiculous amount of fouls called in general.
