George "Iceman" Gervin. He was one of most prolific scorers in league history, won scoring titles, led his teams to the postseason. 12 time all star, scored over 20,000 pts for his career. 25ppg, 5rpg, and 3apg for his career.

x2, or should I say x3, but you haven't voted in the actual poll yet so please do. Definitely Gervin here. He should have been higher.

It's very interesting to me to that Gervin and Walton are the two guys receiving the most votes, because they are such different players.

Gervin played 14 seasons in the ABA/NBA and never played fewer than 76 games in an NBA season, was a scoring machine who didn't do much else and never received much postseason success despite being so good for so long.

Walton played 10 injury plagued seasons in the league over 13 years and only topped 60 games three times, but he was the best player (and did EVERYTHING well) over a two year stretch, winning an MVP, championship and Finals MVP, as well as being a very good 6th man on that unbelievable 86 Celtics team.

These guys couldn't be further from each other on the peak vs. longevity, rings vs. production or scoring guards vs. defensive big men arguments. But I've voted for Walton like five straight times and I'm not stopping now.

So 2 of AI's biggest supporters have now started voting for Reggie and Nique. Not surprising at all, Nique is a decent choice but Reggie? LMFAO

I voted for Dolph Schayes:

http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/s/schaydo01.html

In 1949 he was Rookie of the Year in the league. The following year he was 6th in the league in assists, with 259. He led the NBA in rebounding in 195051 (in which he also had 10 of the top 14 individual rebounding games), with 1,080 and a 16.4-per-game average. He was third in the league in rebounding in 1952-53, with 920. In 1954 his 12.3 rebounds per game were fourth-best in the NBA.

In 1955 he led his team to the NBA Championship. In 195657, he led the league in minutes-per-game (39.6) and free throws (625), while grabbing 1,008 rebounds (3rd in the league) and averaging 22.6 points per game (4th in the league), and in 1957, he set an NBA consecutive free throw record with 18. In 195758, he again led the league in minutes-per-game (40.5), and averaged a career-high 24.9 points per game, which was second in the league, while averaging 14.2 rebounds per game (fourth in the NBA).

Schayes led the NBA in free throw percentage three times: in 1958 (.904), 1960 (.892), and 1962 (.896). In 1959, he scored a career-high 50 points in a game against the Celtics. In 196061, he again led the league in free throws (with 680).

In the NBA, Schayes did not miss a single game from February 17, 1952, until December 26, 1961; a NBA-record streak of 706 games.

In 1961 he had become the first player in NBA history to 30,000 career total PRA (Points + Rebounds + Assists).

Six-time All-NBA First-Team honoree, and was also selected to the All-NBA Second-Team six times

Upon retirement in 1964, Schayes held the NBA records for career scoring (19,249 points), games played (1,059), minutes played, playoff games played, and foul shots made.

In 1970, he was elected to the NBA 25th Anniversary Team, as one of the top 12 players who had finished their career by that time.

In 1972, he was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

In 1996, Schayes was selected as one of the 50 Greatest NBA players of all-time.

Dolph Schayes, although he played in a very early era in the NBA, definitely deserves some consideration. I rest my case.

Usually not my natural inclination, but I'm taking a dominant peak here- Walton.

I don't think postseason success has EVERYTHING to do with a player's legacy, but it should matter SOME. And it certainly doesn't do Gervin any favors.

Very interesting point in the poll. Do you go for Reed's or Walton's short peaks, or staples like Dominique or Gervin?

Reed's was nearly as short as Walton. He also was a league MVP but also 2 Finals MVP and was a better 2 way player than Nique or Gervin. He gets my vote.

Same reason I went with him.
