    I'm not sure how Larry gets past Kobe. Kobe has him beat in so many areas.

    Just a difference in users. Most users here really don't like Kobe despite him having a clear advantage in accomplishments and awards. Larry is probably the better player but his lack of longevity more than hurts him on that end.

    guys you got to remember that Bill Russell was a non athletic 7 foot tall guy that was an Olympic level high jumper and runner and strong enough to defend Wilt better then anyone else in the NBA. I mean look at the video its in black and white

    Kobe's longevity factors in here. Kobe was a top 5 player about as many years as Bird played total. While Bird had the better peak, Kobe had the better career to me. I would take Kobe over Bird personally, but I won't kill a person for taking Bird.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    could Russell even touch the rim if he played today?

    This is going to be a pretty embarrassing list if Russell falls out of the top 10.

    hakeem. russell next. it was close between the two. russell leadership/coach on the floor is under-rated.

    I would have taken Hakeem ahead of Magic and Bird because of his superiority on the defensive end. He definitely should go here as he was simply a much, much better player at his peak that Russell. I'm fine with Russell in the top 10, but not ahead of Dream.

    Russell
    11 NBA champion (1957, 19591966, 1968, 1969)
    5 NBA Most Valuable Player (1958, 19611963, 1965)
    3 All-NBA First Team (1959, 1963, 1965)
    8 All-NBA Second Team (1958, 19601962, 1964, 19661968)

    Hakeem
    2 NBA champion (1994, 1995)
    1x NBA Most Valuable Player (1994)
    6 All-NBA First Team (19871989, 1993, 1994, 1997)
    3 All-NBA Second Team (1986, 1990, 1996)

    We are really going to vote a 1x MVP and 2x NBA Champ before a 5x MVP and 11x NBA Champ? We are voting based off who had the better career. If you had the choice who would pick a career with significantly less MVPs including NINE less championships? A great test would be if we slide Russell up into the top 5 no one would be shocked at the list but if we did the same with Hakeem it would look ridiculous.
