    Best Player of All-Time List (#2)

    So we do a "Top 25 greatest players of all-time list" routinely here on PSD, but I want to do an all-time list of best, not greatest.

    What is the difference?

    This is not a list that measures a players accolades or career, it is a list of simply, if all the players were at their peak/in their prime/at their best (however you describe it) and all in a draft, who would you take first to play against each other in a draft?

    Who are the best players throughout NBA history. You can use stats or accolades to back up your opinion, but this is about who is best, not who made the most All-NBA teams, or who scored the most points, etc. If you think player A is better than player B despite them having a shorter career, vote for player A.

    I have started the poll with 10 players. If you wish to vote for someone else, please vote for other and post who you voted for in the comments. If you wish to nominate someone (or multiple people) for the next poll, post in the comments and I will add them if there are at least 2 nominations for that player.

    In the event of a tie vote, they will both be listed at that number and the next player will begin where that is left off (for instance, T-6th, T-6th, 8th)

    I imagine there will be more of a debate for #2 between LeBron, Kareem, Wilt and Shaq (though I suspect LeBron could run away with it).

    All are very deserving IMO

    Lebron for me, but a couple other guys have clearly good arguments for this spot too

    Given the "draft" aspect of these threads, I would have to go with LeBron if I had the second pick in the draft. He just can do so much and being able to play/guard multiple positions and his insane numbers puts him at #2 for me. He's an incredible player and has been the best player on the planet for so long it's just mind boggling. We are all very fortunate to be able to watch him play.

    Like Jordan at #1, I just don't see how any player in the future could surpass him at #2. They both are that kind of good. After #2 I can see a run on the dominant centers but I truly feel like the two best wings of all time should go first. Then things get interesting and I'm going to have a very difficult time picking from here on out.

    Kerr himself who has played with Jordan had said Curry impacts the game more than Jordan ever did.

    Taking that at face value, and looking at his best production, I'd take curry over anyone else. A close second is Jordan and Shaq is right behind them both.

    **** what Kerr said. Outside of delusional GS fans, people would rather face Curry over Jordan in a NBA finals and that's that. There are 2 sides to Basketball, Jordan is miles ahead in that department too.

    LBJ would have a great argument for this spot but if were drafting? Ill take the most dominant and unstoppable player of all time 01 Shaq Daddy.

    Kerr didn't say that. He's ignoring the context and making a sweeping generalization. In other words, lolplz gon lolplz.

    Wondering if I should make it so people can vote for multiple players if they think theyre equal, but Im worried that could mess up the voting if people vote for like 8 different players lol

    I'm leaning Lebron here but have seen far less of Wilt than anyone else I'm considering (and KAJ is way behind the amount of I have watched Shaq/Lebron).
