    Please vote, explain and nominate...per the usual.

    Rick Barry was added to the poll, because he was the only guy nominated. Your guy not on the list? It's your fault!

    The "Official" Top-50 list will go up sometime today or tomorrow.

    Just a reminder, please keep things civil. This is all just for fun. If you're getting agitated to the point where you're just belittling or insulting people for their opinions, well...reevaluate things.

    Also, 3 days seems to be working a bit better, so for the time being we'll stick with three days. If we have to speed things up later we can.
    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.

    Finally Bird off the board.

    Kobe is an easy pick here for me

    Kobe should have gone 9th, but oh well. He has to go here, seriously

    Kobe probably wins here. An argument could be made for Bill Russell, but Kobe will win.

    Nominate Isaiah Thomas
    Detroit Pistons: SIM LEAGUE CHAMPS

    Jrue Holiday-Bradley Beal-Lance Stephenson-Kevin Love-DeMarcus Cousins

    Miami HEAT and Baltimore Ravens TM

    Do you think that for both peak and career achievement?

    As in both players at the absolute peak of their abilities, you would take Kobe for your team over Bird?

    Can someone explain why Bill Russell hasn't gone yet and Magic went 4th when the arguments against Russell are the SAME arguments against Magic...

    He had great teammates. Uh, Magic is the only guy to have played nearly his whole career with another guy in the top 5 of this list.

    He was a one way player. Magic was a one way player. You cannot say Magic's defense was better than Russell's offense.

    It's just inexplicable to me that there is this double standard. If Magic went in the back half of the top 10 or Russell went closer to Magic it'd make sense, but people saw the same deficiencies in both players arguments and made contradictory decisions.

    Ridiculous.

    Protest vote with Oscar Robertson. Probably my last vote in these things. The list is absolutely hillarious btw.

    Nominate Isiah Thomas seeing that he might end up #30 or something if he's not on that list by the next vote ..

    I weigh a career as a career, not a peak. I rank Kobe's career better than Bird's. If I had to take a single year, I would take 85-86' Bird over any year Kobe produced.

    Magic went too high, I agree. But I also have an issue with Russell going at this point.

    do you honestly believe Zeke belongs anywhere near the top 10?

    I can certainly understand a lot of the Kobe support based on longevity and the age of posters so I expect Kobe to win this vote in a route.

    For me this is a tough call though because if I was starting a team tomorrow I would consider taking David Robinson before Kobe. I know Drob is not shown a lot of respect on PSD but the guy was a darn good player for the first 7 years of his career before his back injury. If you pick based on cumulative stuff like most games played, most points scored, and most anything else Kobe is the choice for sure but was he a better basketball player? I think I'm going to go Drob. I understand some Kobe fans will be upset by this pick. I do not mean any offense to Kobe. I'm just giving my own opinion. People are free to disagree with it.
