    Best Player of All-Time At Their Peak (#21)

    So we do a “top 25 greatest players of all-time list” here on PSD, but I wanted to do a best, not greatest list.

    What is the difference?

    This is NOT a list that measures a players career or accolades, it is simply a list of, if all the players were in their peak/in their prime/at their best/etc. and all in a draft, who would you take first on your team.

    Current List

    1. Michael Jordan
    2. LeBron James
    T3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
    T3. Wilt Chamberlain
    5. Shaquille O’Neal
    6. Magic Johnson
    7. Larry Bird
    8. Hakeem Olajuwon
    9. Tim Duncan
    10. Kobe Bryant
    11. Steph Curry
    12. Moses Malone
    13. Tracy McGrady
    14. Bill Walton
    15. Kevin Durant
    16. Jerry West
    17. Dwyane Wade
    18. Oscar Robertson
    19. Kevin Garnett
    20. Dirk Nowitzki

    Since this seems to be near unanimous for Charles Barkley, the list is getting pretty short, who else do people nominate?

    Kidd and Nash should be on the list. Maybe Grant Hill

    Shut it down.


    Best of the next up

    Best pg
    Cp3 easy on a list like this but Stockton has a case too

    Best sg
    Drexler

    Best sf
    Barry easy

    Best pf
    Kevin McHale had that mvp caliber year with 4 years around that level. Pettit is Dirk lite
    I will understand a vote for Karl Malone but which years?

    Best center
    Russell or Drob . Russell would be the best defender in any era that didn't include hakeem

    We should've defined peak better because the more I think about it, a guy like rwb can reach the highest of highs but he never maintains it. I've been voting based on like 1.5 year stretches.

    I would like to nominate Kawhi Leonard. In a 3 year peak, the dude has 2DPOY and put up over 20 points a game, great rebounder as well. If we look at his playoff numbers, Kawhi is in the rare category to actually up his game. His 3 year peak playoff numbers are pretty insane.

    I'm not sure who to vote for in this poll... I feel David Robinson is being underrated... but Malone has a case, as well as Barkley. I'm not sure...

    SF: DeMarre Carroll | P.J. Tucker | Anthony Morrow
    PF: Tim Duncan | Carlos Boozer | Kyle O'Quinn
    C : Al Horford | Rudy Gobert

    A hard sell when you got dick Barry who led his undermanned squad to a title but it was a lg with more parity and not too many pantheon guys. You still doc, Pippen looms as a superior prototype save for maybe last year but it seems like we need more peak burn from kawhi


    Nvm just realized your just nominating
