    PSD's Official #1 Player of All Time

    Three years ago JB ran the 2nd (I think) "PSD Official Top 50 Greatest Players of All Time". Between the time that has passed, the user turnover and the fact that it's an enjoyable process, well...we think it's time to take another stab at it.

    We've had a week to let the 2014 NBA Finals marinate, and plenty of legacy discussion has popped up. Now's the time to crank out your actual rankings!

    Rules

    I'm no mod, so rather than spitting out some strict rules I'm just going to politely ask that you try to abide by the two following things:

    1. Don't go around the site campaigning for a player. Keep the discussions isolated to their respective threads. We want the voting to be as organic as possible. Frankly, if you care so much about this to the point you're running around begging for votes, well, yikes! This is just for fun so please just keep it fun for everyone.

    2. Don't interrupt the threads with off-topic arguments. Please keep things on topic. It's not hard to do. If you don't like how the voting went in a prior round please don't bring it up in subsequent threads. Just suck it up!

    And obviously, all the normal site and forum rules apply.


    Criteria

    Copied from JB's post: Take into account both peak and career play, era dominance, impact on the game of basketball, and how well their style of play and skills would transcend onto different eras. To be more exact, how great they were at playing the game of basketball.

    My two cents: It's purposefully vague, or at least open ended. It's left up to you how you define a player's greatness. Just try to be rational!


    We have 4 months before the season starts back up again, so each poll will be open for about 2 days a piece (100 days = 3+ months). I think 48 hours is plenty of time for each vote.

    The Last Installment


    Process

    Each thread will have a poll. You vote for one player and then nominate someone who is not on the list. This will help me keep the voting options sound and hopefully avoid overlooking potential vote-getters. Please do the nominating step, it makes things easier for me.

    Please also explain your vote. It's much more fun if people back up their votes rather than just vote-and-run.

    --------------------------------

    Please vote, explain AND nominate someone else to add to the future polling choices.

    (If a mod would like to stick this, go ahead! If not, whatever...)

    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    one thing i found interesting is that Lebron has two seasons where in the playoffs he put up more winshares than jordan's best.


    11-12 lebron: 5.8 WS
    12-13 lebron: 5.2 WS

    90-91 jordan: 4.8 WS


    also lebron's 08-09 was also 4.8 WS, but with a .399 WS/48. Which kills anything jordan put up (.333 in 90-91).

    MJ because of two very simple stats:

    10× NBA scoring champion (1987–1993, 1996–1998)
    9× NBA All-Defensive First Team (1988–1993, 1996–1998)

    Kareem is the only one who can challenge that type of 2-way dominance.

    Well I'm sure those aren't the only two stats :P

    My vote is for MJ here as well, just since the king's career isn't over yet.

    This is finally happening....


    well its finally happening as soon as we get on with the MJ vote because thats the only no brainer.

    "It’s absolutely ludicrous” (to judge players based on whether they’ve won a title.)

    Magic Johnson. Could play all 5 positions, revolutionized the fast break, and beat some of the greatest teams in NBA history in their primes.

    Also saved the NBA when it was on the brink of extinction and had the greatest finals performance ever.

    They are because you can't be the GOAT and be a 1-dimensional player.
