Legacy of bigs. We had a lot of other HOF guys who did well here, but had their better days elsewhere. Ralph Sampson was on track, but injuries hit him hard and quick. Calvin Murphy and Rudy T get shout outs. Drexler is more known as a Blazer, but has his number retired here, and is one of our announcers. He has a special place, but belongs more on Portland's mountain.

Not trying to be mean but why do people say Alcindor? I know he was born with that last name but is it just to show you know his prior name? Like a game knowledge thing? Because if everyone just said kaj or kareem it would alleviate some confusion on casual fans or younger fans. Just always wanted to ask someone who uses this name.

And Tony Curtis will always be Bernie Schwartz, And Charles Bronson will always be Charlie Buchinski to me.

They can tell us what they'd like to called, but we call them what we like.

I knows it's just kareem changed his name like a year or two into his nba career, it's not like ppl were used to it or anything. I would say 98% of people call him kareem I was just curious why people called him Alcindor when I can almost guarantee not many people on this site are even old enough to have watched him play under that name. Especially when only 2 pro came as Alcindor and over 18 were as kareem.

for Bucks fans, they SHOULD call him Alcindor. He changed his name the day after they won their one and only championship.

Not a Lakers fan, but I gotta say, West NEEDS to be on there, not only for what he did as a player, but also as the GM.

I'd put Kobe in there after, though I think Shaq was actually more important to the team,but Kobe has been the most popular play for the franchise for liek 20 years now...

He has a special place, but belongs more on Portland's mountain.

This isn't bad, but I would most certainly replace Hayes with Rudy T, not only because of his accomplishments as a player, but as a coach. In fact, I'd say he's the third most deserving person behind Hakeem and Moses. Behind those three, it's a toss up between Yao and Calvin. Because we already have two 70s-80s guys on there, I'd probably keep Yao.

Anyways, my Rockets Mount Rushmore would be:

Hakeem Olajuwon
Moses Malone
Rudy Tomjanovich

FWIW, I don't think Pierce is higher than Hondo if we're ranking them all-time. Just thought it would be a neat idea if you did the star for each generation and then the guy who was the mind behind 16 championships. If we're doing the top 4 players then mine would be...

Havlicek 8 - 6 w/ Russell's era 2 w/ Cowens
Bird 3
KG 1

Havlicek is the only guy (along with rotation forward Nelson (3 Russell & 2 w/ Havlicek) to cross two dynasties (I don't count Chaney's 208 MP with Russell's last Championship team).

Havlicek has a major lead over all other Celtics in games played (1442), minutes played (53334), FGA, FGM, 2nd in assists (when they were tough in giving them out), 2nd in defensive win shares. He's one of the 4; behind Bird and Russell and ahead of anyone else (as you said).

Mmm.... Agree to disagree. Russell and Bird both easily have cases over Auerbach. He might be one of the greatest coaches of all-time, but a great coach is nothing without great players and both Russell and Bird are debatable top 10 all-time guys. I'd pick an all-time great player over an all-time great coach in terms of impact any day of the week.

he was more than just a coach,he was also exec who acquired all those guys ,so without him none of the guys we are discussing would be celtics.that has greater impact on the organization than anything.like i said,if we're talking strictly players than of course you dont include him,but if we're talking the celtics mount rushmore overall his name is first and foremost ,his fingers are all over the celtics from 50's-80's

Then Zs all time leading rebounder, and shot blocker. Not to mention second leading scorer, Price all time leading in assists and one the most underated point guards to play the game. I would give lebron honorable mention, since he never really won a ring when competition was kind of down in the league before the superstars teaming up trying to win phase.

This is totally nonsensical. No talent? Lebron had to play seven years in Cleveland with no legitimate No. 2 and had to go against that insanely good defensive Pistons team and the stacked Pierce, Garnett, Allen Celtics for years in the East. Not to mention, the one time he made the finals, he was up against the Duncan, Manu, Parker Spurs. Those are three of the best basketball teams of the last 20 years. To say the league wasn't as talented back then is a massive insult to those teams and all they accomplished (a combined five rings in the 2000s).

Lebron is, without a doubt, one of the four greatest Cavaliers of all-time. And he's also unquestionably the greatest player to ever don a Cavalier jersey in his prime. I don't know how this is even debatable, and I don't know how you can possibly let your hate cloud your judgment that much.

After those two, i really think you could put alot of people there. Many players/Red that can have a strong case made for them. One i will disagree on with is the people that have KG there over pierce. Was KG a better all time player? no doubt. But what pierce meant to the city of boston and the franchise, to me at least was alot more with his long tenure here.

Agree wholeheartedly on Pierce. In terms of players and their value to the Celtics franchise, I think Pierce would be a really, really close fourth with Havlicek getting a very slight lead at third behind Russell and Bird. After that, it's probably a coin flip between Cousy and Cowens. Then I'd look at McHale, Parish and Sam Jones before looking at KG, Dennis Johnson, Tommy Heinsohn and JoJo White.

Also, for Laker fans that didn't add Shaq, you guys are mentally sick and have been brain washed by the media.

Because if you takeaway Kobe off of those Shaq lead championship teams, and replace him with any of the wing stars/super star wing players, the Lakers still win those titles.

But if you think Kobe would have gotten out of the west with out Shaq, or you give Kobe another star player to play with, in the east or the west; and you think they would have beaten a Shaw lead team or even make it to the Finals, you are lying to yourself and you didn't really comprehend the league back then.

Sixers have three locks in DrJ, Barkley, Iverson. Then you choose between Wilt 3 years on team 1 chip, ot Moses 2 years on team 1 chip. I don't think you can leave the top three off

I believe Mo Cheeks deserves some consideration

i dont know who id take off for lebron , not like he won ring all those guys had great careers in a better era of talent and competition, if not for Jordan three of those guys have a ring in the 90s when Bulls dominated. Then Zs all time leading rebounder, and shot blocker. Not to mention second leading scorer, Price all time leading in assists and one the most underated point guards to play the game. I would give lebron honorable mention, since he never really won a ring when competition was kind of down in the league before the superstars teaming up trying to win phase.

You are leaving off the best player in Cavs history easily. I imagine it may have something to do with the way he left, I am sure many Cavs fans are kind of torn on their opinion of him.

But make no mistake. He was the best player in your teams franchise history.

yeah, Moses is probably the 4th, he was the MVP of your 83' run.

Mo Cheeks is my favorite sixer ever. But these 5 were better.

Toney was my favorite to watch when I was a kid. When he got going, he was a machine

Walton led us to our only title but he bugs me so much that I wouldn't put him on any mountain. Lillard will be up there eventually IMO.

I'd choose Murphy over Yao

It's close, but yao has more of a legendary status IMO, but I don't have a Problem with Murph being there, considering he personally taught me pretty much everything I know about basketball. He's a great guy and has done a lot for the rockets after he retired

I agree with this mostly. I put Bernard King in for my fourth, just edging out Monroe. Melo will probably top him if he has a few more superstar years. He hasn't been here long enough for me. Houston has too much baggage to put there. I'd probably pick DeBusschere or Bill Bradley over Houston

For the Heat it would be

Dwyane Wade
Lebron James
Alonzo Mourning
Tim Hardaway

Shaq really was not with Miami long enough to be considered (only 3 1/2 years). Bosh could get in over Hardaway, but he would have to spend the rest of his prime here. Wade/Lebron/Zo will all probably stay on forever.

And Murph spent his entire career with the Rockets, actually got to the Finals, great scoring guard the could pass (his FG%s a remarkable), and the toughest guy in the NBA. NOBODY tried to provoke Calvin.

This isn't bad, but I would most certainly replace Hayes with Rudy T, not only because of his accomplishments as a player, but as a coach. In fact, I'd say he's the third most deserving person behind Hakeem and Moses. Behind those three, it's a toss up between Yao and Calvin. Because we already have two 70s-80s guys on there, I'd probably keep Yao.

Anyways, my Rockets Mount Rushmore would be:

Hakeem Olajuwon
Moses Malone
Rudy Tomjanovich
Yao Ming

I was thinking only along the lines of players. Rudy T as a good player, but his legacy as a coach is much bigger in Rockets lore. I agree he's up there if you factor everything in.
